EmmaLou, Golden Destroyer

I thought I’d add a few pics of one of the main characters in this blog, the intelligent, exuberant, into-everything, always entertaining, tries hard to be good but attracts trouble like a moth to a flame, chewing champion,  my Golden Destroyer EmmaLou.  Most of these have been included somewhere in this blog.

Just like the above glittery sign, my friend Laura did the street sign below – she’s so talented!!!

I’ve been playing with a piece of software called Fotosketcher from my friend Delaney and this is a pic of EmmaLou turned into a watercolor painting – Pretty cool effect.

Taken from a photo turned into an watercolor painting w/Fotosketcher

The pic above was done by Midwest Mom or if you follow Twitter, she’s known as Blindfaith73 – a very cool lady in my book.  She got this idea from a cool site,  http://photofunia.com. Try it yourself.  She sent another one – see below.

she's priceless alright!

Christmas 2010 she sneaked under the Christmas tree and snagged her stocking. She couldn't get the toy out and so used the stocking for a pillow!

  1. I thoroughly understand why you love her so much and you know she is basically a sweet baby, she just has “moments” that drive you nuts. :0)

    I like the pic you used for your new header of her. She looks right at home.
    Yep – that’s my fur-child. The header pic was taken in my home office on my “reading” chair – I was in the “working” chair at the time over at my armoire desk doing homework when she just wandered in and made herself at home, promptly took a little snooze and I had to snap a pic. She has since learned that chair is “off limits’. She often looks at it longingly when we’re upstairs though.

  2. Aww…these photos are so cute. My favorite is the mug shot one :)
    Hi Nish – EmmaLou is pretty photogenic – sometimes, though, she’s not in the mood to have her pic taken and we have to work on posing for awhile – takes lots of treats; she has me well trained!

  3. Oh… EmmaLou. You are gorgeous. I am looking down the hall at my good bad dog, who is also my bad good dog, Okemo. He is a Golden, like you, and just a tad spoiled. He loves to gut stuffed animals and scatter their innards. He likes to maul the cat. He enjoys stealing pound cake off the kitchen island. Here he comes now. I’ll show him your picture.
    EmmaLou thanks you for the kind compliment – she likes to think she’s somewhat cute. When her alpha human finds her primping in front of the mirror she reminds EmmaLou it’s what’s on the inside that counts…unfortunately what’s on the inside of EmmaLou is frequently a trinket or piece of furniture that belongs to the alpha human. Okemo sounds like he must be EmmaLou’s long lost brother. She’s a great innards scatterer – it’s on her resume. She’s never tasted pound cake but she once ate about a pound of cake she stole off the counter. She’s the best counter surfer around – wow if there was an Animal Olympic event in counter surfing, EmmaLou would take the Gold(en) Medal. Thanks for visiting! Cheers!

  4. That reminds me of Zeus! Except, he now has a squeaky fish that fits in the palm of my hand and he expects me to play tug of war with him with that?! Is he crazy?!
    They’re all crazy – that’s what we love – hang on I have a couple new pics to post here.

  6. Might have to change her name to Emma Lou Golden Protector LOL :-) What a sweet and amazing fur baby
    She is a great protector – she never leaves my side when I need her – she seems to know when her special brand of love and comfort is most required and she just makes a beeline for me and won’t leave. Today she’s snoozin’ downstairs in the family room w/Devoted Spouse who may also be snoozing as she got him up at 4 a.m. for her potty break and he never got back to sleep. She can be a little devil. But when ya gotta go, ya gotta go. Thanks for all your artistic creative computerized renderings of my fur-child – you are so cool to do this and any time you want to further experiment, feel free to keep using any of her pictures you like – just send me a copy so I can give you credit and put it here on EmmaLou’s bloggydoggie page! Hugs!

  7. I was laughing so hard when I saw the pics of Emma Lou and her alcohol I snorted rofl!!! and Merlin is looking at me funny :-)
    I took those pics for a twitter party (pawty) for another dog. I laughed so hard while taking those pics and EmmaLou was so patient – she would NOT wear the baseball cap so I managed to get a pic of her trying to get the cap off her head and it looked like she was passed out on the couch and that made me laugh even harder! What a sweet tolerant pup she is. And what a great friend you are! Hugs!

  8. Ummm…of course I love that you have a Golden named Emma Lou. I especially love that she’s your little “Destroyer.” So true, so true.
    Emma is a lovely name be it for a Goldie or a nice new bloggy friend… Hugs!

  9. Oh gosh! LOL I didn’t realize the dog’s name was EmmaLou. Beautiful dog and a witty mom with the pics. ;-)
    On behalf of EmmaLou and myself, thank you!

  10. She’s a cutie. Tell her to share the Jack, tho….
    She’ll share the Jack but you touch the bone or the Rolling Rock and you’ll be pulling back a bloody stump. LOL

  11. hi! i see how cute your dog is, but im so sad i gotta name as your dog. i got insulted at some point too. but don’t worry i have nothing against you and your dog. :)
    Hi! You have nothing to be sad about or insulted – many times people give their pets “human” names – and EmmaLou is a beautiful name for a lovely person such as yourself!! My husband actually named her Emma and I added on the Lou because it sounded happy to my ears. Hope that’s helpful. Thanks for visiting me!

  12. Such a beautiful girl! I can tell how much you love her. I adore Goldens.. our last two dogs were Goldens; both fabulous dogs. The first one, especially, was one of those once-in-a-lifetime amazing dogs. Miss him terribly. Our current dog is half Golden and half Yellow Lab, very sweet but kinda dumb. We love her anyway, lol.
    yes, we love our EmmaLou! She’s a handful, but she’s brought so much love to us and she always makes us smile! Thanks for your comment.

  13. I see a LOT of EmmaLou Love here… she is so sweet. The art work your friend did is cool!
    thanks, looking through this page I see it’s been awhile since I added anything, so there’s another project on my list in the new year! Thanks for visiting!

  14. LOLOL! Yoo rock, Emma Lou! Keep your chew on, datz my advize. Wuv en nubby tail wag, Wookie
    Hi! Thanks for your visit. EmmaLou says, *smoochie* to you!

  15. We would love to take this dog off your hands, we have a 15 year old golden and we just lost her 14 yr old sister 4 weeks ago. How do we get in touch with you? Please e-mail us at info@beadbus.com if you are still interested in giving your dog away. Thanks, Sue & Steve
    ARE YOU SERIOUS? There is NO WAY I would EVER get rid of my EmmaLou!!! She’s my trusty canine pal! Don’t know where you got the idea I would give her away. Obviously you haven’t read my blog. Sheesh. NEVAH!!! :)
