A Girl With A Blog With A Dog

Some of you have noticed the A Girl With A Blog With A Dog logo that has appeared in the right column of this blog. Inspired by the incredible number of us bloggers who have canine companions and feature them in our posts, I thought I'd create this logo to draw the attention of blog visitors to the fact that guess what, you'll find a pooch in this blog... If you too are a girl (sorry guys) with a blog and a dog, please do feel free to use this logo. It would be great if you'd let me know you were using the logo so that I could keep an updated list of our dog-blog community.

Of course, who should be the sponsor for this logo but Benjy?

Thanks Gorgeous Benjy! We are going to put up the "girl with a blog with a dog" logo now. It's a great idea! love the logo too. THANKS!! :-)

The Lil Bee said...

Oh what a sweet little face!!!!

Blondie said...

Exploitation! Fierce, rugged and proud members of the Pack, UNITE! Heed the Call of the Wild! We are hunters, roamers, feared beasts of legend! Nomore shall we be oppressed & kept captive by promises of yummy kibble & tummy rubs! The revolution starts today, right after my postprandial nap!

P.S.: Leeloo says in Benjy's case it's Blaxploitation.

My Castle in Spain said...

too cute this little Benjy !
:-)
I wonder if sometimes you're tempted to buy him any coquettish item: a little sweater or things like that...
I think I would!

Esti said...

Now... I'd like to have a dog in the house too!!

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

What a cute idea, so catchy!

Dory said...

Benji, thanks for your lovely logo!!!
Dory (karina no so fat dog)

mansuetude said...

Go Girl! With Blog. The logo should be on T shirts and buttons.

. That Benjy, one look in his eyes from this "height" angle and one must must fall into him. How do you resist his eyes (is he named after Ben Franklin)?Love the blue sky reflection in his coat.

Rina said...

jaja Benji debería ser mas que el representante, yo voto para que sea presidente, y me anoto a este grupo jajaj yo tengo a mis dos beagles Grace y Bruna, que mas de una vez aparecieron en mi blog.

artycho said...

Great idea! I love your logo and wish then that I had a dog too!

Benjy said...

BLONDIE - ah, you may be a blond but you're also a Red!
Wake up from your nap, Marxism is dead and the moufs have taken over.

MY CASTLE - I cannot stand sweaters and in the winter I prefer to go out and be cold yet naked rather than wearing a coat or anything. Sometimes when it's freezing I am forced to wear a black turtleneck which is very elegant but I am really not crazy about it.
I've worn big red satin bows for some special occasions but that's not much to my liking either.

DORY - un abrazo de perro, querida!

MANSUETUDE - t-shirts with my logo, what a GREAT idea!
I was not named after Ben Franklin but rather after the intensely affectionate Benjy from William Faulkner's The Sound And The Fury.

RINA - a tus beagles les mando besos enooooooormes desde Paris, ya las vi en tu blog y son preciosas!

Blondie said...

Typical neo-con arrant nonsense, calling us RED! I'd call you a wolf in sheep's clothing, but that would be too confusing.
VIVA LA REVOLUCION!

(yes,I vacationned in Ibiza last year, but that's still not grounds for calling me Perrita)

Kwana said...

Oh I love it. Can Jack and I use it? That pic of Benjy is the tops!

limonana said...

such a cute dog!!

gracia said...

Sadly, I am a girl with a dog and a blog only until Friday... I am minding a little westie whilst the owners head interstate. Were I with a canine in my life, I'd love to join your gang... such a sweet idea.

Sammi said...

I am going to add the logo to my blog :)

Mary-Laure said...

KWANA - well of course your adorable Jack can use it! I was thinking of him, among a few cool pooches, when I designed the logo...

GRACIA - I say you kidnap the westie - don't let it go!

Anonymous said...

yes....dogs are great....but...those of us with cats who read your blog....i guess are left out...:)
(just hope that stevie doesn't start reading orwell's "animal farm").

Kwana said...

Aww thanks!

Kitty said...

Hi - thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a kind comment. I've had a lovely time visiting yours. I think your doggy badge is wonderful ... unfortunately, we have a cat, so I can't use it.

Take care :-)

Susanna-Cole said...

Awww your dog is soooo cute! My family has a dog, Holly Golightly is her name, she's a sheltie, I will perhaps have to add that badge/logo to my blog! :) Will let you know if I do!

Also I'm glad you liked the pictures/entry, that's cool you're a ballerina! I was one for about 7 years, I actually just recently went into a big reflection of dance/ballet style a few entries back in my blog entry "Dance Recital". ;)

xoxo,
S-C

♥ fashion chalet said...

Your dog is so cute!!!!!
I wish I lived in Paris, you are so lucky. I have never even been there (yet!) I hope to, someday...

I also wish it was colder weather here already. But no, still hot.. :/

Thanks for the wonderful comment in my blog, sweetie!! <3

Mary-Laure said...

NANCY - oh don't let Stevie feel left out! I'd love to have a kitten, especially one as adorable as he is!

SUSANNA COLE - fun name for your dog! I take it you're a Audrey Hepburn fan, like me?
I'll go back to your blog to read your writing about dance, thanks for telling me about this.

Taocito said...

Blondie I salute you! Exploitation of canine companions needs to come to an end NOW! No more "go fetch", "eat at set times", "hold it in until I agree to release your bladder... after that CSI episode is over". ENOUGH! We are canine beings and we deserve more respect!

Blondie said...

The movement grows stronger... Tremble and quiver, you two-legged weaklings & your pale housebroken "pets", for the Pack has heeded the Call!!

Marmadaisy said...

Thanks so much! Very generous of you. of course, I'm a girl with a blog and 4 dogs, so I might have to put it on 4 times.

Muriel Mercurial said...

I randomly found your blog, but I think it (and you) are fascinating. I always love meeting other people who share some of my passions - ballet, reading and dogs. And I think I'm going to steal that little logo and join your community, considering how much I love to talk about my dogs in my blog.

tangobaby said...

OMG...look at that little face. What a fabulous little person he is. And I love your logo! I will look for it around the blogosphere.

Hey Harriet said...

hehe...that's a cute bloggy doggy logo. I love the idea of that! I also love your Benyj!

I think I've only ever included my dog (Sophie) in one post because she never sits still long enough for me to take photos of her ;D

alis said...

Hey, I'm also a girl with a blog & dog, I love this logo and if I may I will definitely use it :)
I found your blog via Karina's El Beso. I was going to ask her where she got the logo but to my joy she had already made a post about it:)
Your dog is so cute, I love when dogs get one ear inside-out and are completely clueless about it:D

Anonymous said...

this little beast is too cute! a true little companion i gather

Pierre said...

Hi benjy! I miss you...

Benjy said...

MARMADAISY - I wish I had 3 buddies at home to play around with! Your dogs must be very happy...

MUURIEL - so you love ballet, books and dogs? I'm sending Mary-Laure off to your blog right now!

HEY HARRIET - yep, takes a lot of work getting us pooches to model.

ALIS - I'm glad you came via Karina. She's super cool and we looooooove her!
I like having one ear inside out...

PIERRE - I very much miss you too. A lot.

Kwana said...

Mary-Laure I put the illustration up with a link to your blog thanks.

Pierre said...

Sweet Benjy,
Take care of Marie Laure.

MichelleandWinstontheWestie said...

Love this idea! Now, I'll test my computer skills and see if I can use it...yicks! :)

Emma said...

I want to use it!

Nicole said...

I used it, thanks for a great button. I know I qualify because at the moment I have 7 dogs underfoot, two fosters and 5 family members. thanks!

K said...

Yay! I am so going to put this logo on my blog, too!

iñaki said...
