A Few Thursday Barks


Hi Y’all!




Yesterday Earl Lover wanted to know…

Have you discovered the new blog layout you want to keep with now pal?    sumskersandearlskers13.blogspot.com”

I didn’t like the one we had…so far I like this one, but I still like the one with the squares. 

What do y’all think?




Talent Hounds wanted to know“Going to smell or eat that flower Hawk? lol”

and  easyweimaraner“OMG that flowers are a big as your head… and they are beautiful.. is that a kind of hibiscus?”

To the Talent Hounds, I just like to smell them.  And Easy, my friend, yes, it is hibiscus. 



Remember the visitor?  I asked what y’all think happened next…

easyweimaraner said…“you had a visitor? pawsome!… maybe the visitor makes a sniff test too? or maybe he will run away”

The Daily Pip thinks…“I bet you two are going to be friends and have lots of fun adventures”

Flea thinks… “Hey! That looks like Slim Doggy Jack!”

MyBrownNewfies says…“I think you both get up and run around the yard!”

Oh My Shih Tzu (@OhMyShihTzu)…“We think you guys are going to be great buddies!!”

Groovy Goldendoodles thinks…“You played all day long…”.

DZ Dogs says…“I bet you guys did zoomies next!”

Emmadog thinks…“Love the way the intruder is looking at you like what the heck are you doing!”

Jan K wants to know…“Does that dog have some kind of treat or toy he doesn’t want to share? It’s only polite since he invaded your yard, right?”

Pooch Smooches agrees…“I agree with Jan – I was going to say it looks like the “intruder” has a cookie he doesn’t want to share! I don’t like to share my treats either…. :)”

Tenacious Little Terrier remarks…“You start playing chase?”

Penny’s pawtend human, Gary“Some serious sniffing going on, y’all. Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar is jealous! 🙂 Nice photos!”

Talent Hounds says…“Maybe some serious play time? Hope he liked to share.”

lapaylor says…“well in Cole’s world there would be a fracas unless they were friends. LeeAnna and Cole”






And now I’ll leave y’all with this…




Y’all come on back!

  1. I like the page view of this theme but I see no way to get to your home page. Or maybe this theme doesn’t have one? I would also like to see the name of your blog somewhere on this page. 🙂 Thanks so much for joining the hop!

    1. Hi Y’all!

      I just should have linked the home page instead of the specific post. However, navigation is still proving a problem, so I think it’s back to the drawing board.

      Y’all come on by,

  2. Hi there,
    I love your clean layout here and your photos are always so good, but I agree with 2 Brown Dogs – I can’t see a navigation bar, side bar or branding or a way to see other posts I would like etc. Thanks for answering my questions and have a great day. We’ll be back. X Susie


    1. Hi Y’all,

      I’ll get the Human to see if she can get the menu back. It was there when she finished with it yesterday, but she must have done something that unsaved it. (Blame it all on the Human).

      We’ll keep playing with it for a wee bit before we move on.

      Thanks for the update,
      Hawk aka BrownDog


  3. Well, even though someone gave me their back end, I will say, what happened to your theme? It was looking good, but now it is just a post, I feel like it is lost or something. You need a header, blog name, sidebar…perhaps you are working on it, but wanted to mention that.


    1. Hi Emma,

      There was a sidebar menu when I finished with it, but when I pull it up in another browser I don’t see it.
      As for getting from one post to the other, at the bottom of the page there is an arrow that lets you go back to the older post and then forward again if you want.

      As for header and blog name, it showed up on the main page but cut the photos so you couldn’t really see them. It didn’t show up on the post page. Thus, I dropped it off.

      Thanks for the help.

      Y’all come on back,
      Hawk aka BrownDog


  4. We agree with the above – you’re working hard on your new blog, but it’s hard to navigate with your current theme. The previous one wasn’t bad at all! This is just a post on it’s own, and I can’t see a way to get back to your blog without opening up a new page. But keep working on it Hawk – it can’t be too easy! 🙂



    1. Hi Earl,

      Unfortunately, I see navigation is going to be a major problem because you have to scroll to the bottom, below the comment box to find the little navigation arrow. Much too difficult, especially when the post is long, like today, or there are lots of comments.

      Thanks for the heads up!
      Hawk aka BrownDog


  5. Your blog title is missing, so it’s difficult to click to the home page. All this will come with it so maybe it’s just a matter of checking your settings 🙂 This one is better than the last one because there is more space for the blog content to be displayed 🙂

    Honestly, I haven’t found the perfect wordpress theme either. Just making do with the existing one I have 😛


    1. Hi Y’all!

      Thanks for the help. I dropped the header because it cut the pics on the main page so you couldn’t really see them or the titles of the post.

      I had a menu, but for some reason it isn’t showing properly. It was supposed to be one of those you click on and it drops down or slides out.

      Y’all come on back,
      Hawk aka BrownDog


  6. So you had a visitor and just left her. BOL Oh Hawk!!

    What can I say that the wise blogvillites haven’t already said? I hope you get the tweaks worked out, it can be so frustrating.

    Thank you for joining the blog hop.


  7. You’re so nice Hawk to not bother that intruder to share whatever he’s munching on!

    Hope you get your navigation issues worked out. As the others said, I liked the last theme you had. It looked similar (nice and clean) but seemed easier to get around.


  8. So you’ve been playing around with your blog. We’re so busy “playing” with our email, we haven’t even had time to update our header. Thanks for the comment on Live Writer. We don’t use it but Google has had it in for the MS online to computer program, as well as Thunderbird. Our problem is with the updated to make Google happy Thunderbird, so we can really empathize with the Live Writer users. You’re right. They are “similar”.


  9. Uh-oh….another intruder?? I hope this one didn’t bring a treat that he or she won’t share with you!
    I like today’s theme (Friday) as far as the home page but the post page seems too plain.
    I have to say though, it’s fun seeing all the different ones you’re trying (probably not as much fun for you though). 🙂
