emma, the dog,

is a little deaf,
but she still knows the sound of a saucy dinner plate being placed on the floor.

Cute :-))
Interesting composition on the wall. What is this?

Irina said...

Yes, I love the dogs. But this time I was completely absorbed by this veery interesting bookcase with wheels... :-)

The piece in the background is a sample of the artwork of Ahren Ahrenholz.

Gunn said...

Very interesting ARTISTIC work!
Yes, and the dog IS cute!:-)
Enjoy your day!

Sunny said...

Cute dog and very interesting artwork.
Sunny :)

Kate said...

A good, patient dog! Another artist to research. Thanks, Brattcat.

Sharon said...

Like the others who have commented, I love the adorable dog with the beautiful face, but got completely caught up in that amazing artwork behind her.

Leif Hagen said...

What a beautiful dog, Emma! She looks like a wonderful companion.

Virginia said...

The nose knows!!

And I spotted the art piece as well. WONDERFUL

Birdman said...

Ok, my interest is piqued. Cafe? Restaurant? Someone's inviting kitchen?

brattcat said...

The inviting kitchen of the artist and his artist wife.

Rob and Mandy said...

Selective hearing? My problem as well, now and then, ask my wife.

Is that newspapers for wallpaper on the wall? I like the layout of this place. I like the dog too.

Sharon Creech said...

My sister's dog, dozing two rooms away, also perks up at the sound of a saucy dinner plate being placed on the floor. And I, like the others here, also perked up at the sight of that tactile artwork as backdrop. Wow!

JM said...

And she's looking at you!
Is that amazing piece of 'furniture'(?) merely decorative? It's fantastic!

Magpie said...

Lovely shot...great composition. Emma looks very alert here. Was she promised "a saucy dinner plate" if she posed so prettily?

Jacob said...

Delightful! It would be tragic if she couldn't hear that plate hit the floor! This is a very interesting picture...can't help but wonder where it was taken ... and you must have been up a staircase or loft ...

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Amin said...

Interesting composition.

Julie said...

Emma looks like she is waiting patiently! Her mistress looks stunning in that cranberry color!

Elenka said...

Looks sorta like a Louise Nevelson piece...the wall, not the dog.

Anya said...

Looks so cute
and is looking at you ...... LOL

Have a relaxing sunday :-)

Hi, the piece of art looks great in the background and very original, so the cute dog pose. Thanks a lot for visiting and Happy Sunday!

Clueless in Boston said...

The dog probably noticed you and was wondering what you were up to. I also noticed the "bookcase on wheels" and thought it was a collection of fabric swatches etc. and the owner a decorator. Guess I was wrong.

Cezar and Léia said...

Emma is adorable and I think she was posing for your camera!
As our friends, I also loved that interesting art wall.This place looks so charming!
Léia :)

Amin said...

Interesting composition and lovely shot.

VP said...

Love that composition and the expression of Emma!

Tulsa Gentleman said...

Our dog Smokey has selective hearing. If a plate is laid on the floor he can hear it from across the house. He does a great pre-wash. On the other hand if asked to vacate our bed he seems to be stone deaf.

Serge Cornillet said...

Nice picture, it's a good way to share your "atmosphere" with us.
Bye,
Serge

Amin said...

Where are you my friend?

Where are you my friend?

Dogs never miss that "sound."

lizziviggi said...

Emma has a sweet face... she deserves a saucy little treat! Like the previous commenters, I was also intrigued with the gigantic art piece on wheels. It's fascinating!

Julie said...

The artwork is astounding. I gather from the bare feet, that the floor is heated!

Tash said...

Emma is darling, but the wall piece is amazing. (Am I the 35th person to have said that?)

Hilda said...

She seems very interested in you too.

Emma reminds me of our dog — even when his sense of smell had weakened tremendously, he could always smell chicken (his favorite) from anywhere in the house. :)
