Well, this week's image had me chuckling and thinking up my very own daft captions.
All I can say is "Go Pooch!"
So, you know what to do my Pretty Plonkers.
Caption this image and the best caption wins a wee prize from me.

Well, our Christmas decorations and lights are up and they look great! We even have a flashing Rudolf. And by that I mean our Rudolf has flashing lights...not...nevermind.
For the entire month of December, Xmas Dolly's Monday Music Moves Me theme is Christmas Songs, of course, but as usual I'm breaking the rules, because #1, thats how I roll and #2, I want to showcase someone.
His name is Dave Cad, he's been a YouTube vlogger for a good few years and I've been following him for as long as I can remember. Way back before he was a famous and very popular YouTuber. He's an incredibly talented bloke, with many hidden talents and a brilliant sense of humour. He constantly under-estimates himself and could use another couple of thousand followers. Go check him oot, oh yeah, Dave's on Twitter too.
Some sweet sounds from the boys from Libera
Time for some Christmas Swag?
And of course some Christmassy Jack and Meg White
Going old School

It is quite a somber day in South Africa.
Nelson Mandela past away last night.
Not only is the weather overcast and gloomy, but the mood in the country is melancholy.
Madiba will be remembered as a symbol for wisdom, for the ability to change, and the power of reconciliation.
In Zuma's address to the nation today
“Although we knew this day was going to come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss. His tireless struggle for freedom earned him the respect of the world. His humility, passion and humanity earned him their love.”
Rest In Peach, Madiba.

I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.
I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.
Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets. I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.
I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller number nine and won the weekend passes. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.
I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed covert operations for the CIA.
I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.
I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four-course meals using only a Mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prizewinning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis.
But I have not yet shoved a short-shafted broom up my arse and swept the floor while I complete all these tasks.
