Dog Days of Summer – Dog Tag

As a little something extra this month I am answering this awesome dog tag. La La in the Library and Jolene from Jo’s Book Blog are holding a Dog Days of Summer month where they focus on dogs for the month. And especially for this they created this lovely dog tag. Anyone is welcome to participate with a post. I don’t read a whole lot of dog books (none really) but I can participate with a tag like this.

So here we go! photostudio_1502265555243

1 What was the name of your first dog?

Technically that would be Sloeber. My parents already owned him when I was born. Unfortunately he was attacked by other dogs in our street and turned sickly as a result. My parents had to put him down a few weeks later so I don’t remember him very well.


The first dog we had that I named was Minoes, a Maltezer. We got her when I was 9 or 10 since I really wanted one and my parents had been dogless since Sloeber passed away. They were willing too. Minoes was actually in my name. But I was young so my parents took care of her more than I did. Still I loved her a lot. She passed away in 2010 from kidney failure.

2. Do you have a dog now?

Floortje and I May 2017

No! ._. We have one cat. My parents took another dog a few years ago, called Floortje, and I like to think of her as mine a little. She’s super crazy about me anyway, haha. Even though I don’t get to see her as much she seems to know I’m a part of the family.

3. What is your favorite breed of dog?

I don’t think I have a favorite breed. I like the look of different type of breeds. I think husky’s look gorgeous but I could never see myself owning such a large dog. Smaller dog wise I think I like Maltezers since we’ve had one of those ourselves.

4. What is your favorite canine themed book?

I’m just going to go sink in my hole and say: ‘I don’t know?’ Honestly I don’t. Maybe I read one when I was younger but I can’t recall one now. I promise I will read dog themed books with Merijn. That I solemnly swear.

5. Who is your favorite fictional dog?

Scooby-Doo! Are you even really surprised?

6. What is your top movie choice with a featured canine?

101 Dalmatians, Beethoven, any Scooby-Doo movies, The Lady and the Tramp, Up.

7. Do you consider yourself a dog or a cat person? Why?

I like to think of myself as both. I used to be a dog person as I used to be allergic to cats but as I got older and became more resistant I was able to be around cats more easily and now we have our own cat. It is easier to have a cat. Don’t have to walk it, haha.

Tell us about a personal dog related memory.

One of the things I remember very well about Minoes was when we went to visit her as a puppy before we got to take her home.  Sitting amongst all those puppies and having Minoes be the one that always demanded my attention. Then the day we picked her up we went by car and I held her in my lap on the way home and she pied on me. ._.

  1. Thanks so much for doing the tag! Scooby Doo is awesome. My friends and I growing up would play Scooby Doo because they had a dog. I always had to be Thelma because she wore glasses. I wanted to be Daphne instead lol.

  3. OMG this is such an awesome Tag post!!!

    I’m working on a dog breed tag for quite a while now – composing the pictures is a lot of work so I need to be in a specific mood to set my mind to do that you know.. – but that’s still with book related questions and answers.

    Do you mind if do this tag as well? I’d loooove to talk about dogs in a tag post on the blog hehe. Of course, I’ll link back to you ❤

  4. Poor Sloeber. đŸ˜Ļ Are you sure Merijn wasn’t cloned from you?! He is like your twin.

    I always enjoy seeing pics of Floortje on Facebook. You should have added the one of the hubs with Floortje on his lap looking so “happy”. Ha ha.

    You should read A Dog Of Flanders and then you can say you have read a dog book. 😀

    I am.glad you and another person mentioned Up because I totally would have forgotten to add that to my favorite dog movie a post. I loved and adored that movie. Squirrel!

    Thank you for doing the tag! I am having so much fun reading everyone’s answers and I think I am getting to know people better, too. 🙂 I am linking you up now.

  5. Awww I love those pictures! Such cute dogs. This is a really cute tag too! Thanks for the tag 🙂 I’ve never had a dog (I was actually afraid of all dogs until a few years ago – I’m still scared of dogs but a lot less and not of all dogs) but I should be able to answer most of these questions 🙂

    1. Ah I knew there was something when I typed your name but I could not recall what. I think you mentioned it before. I’m glad you still want to do the tag though. I think seeing your answers will also give a different perspective which is great.

  6. Dankjewel voor de tag Annemieke. Ik denk echter dat ik deze ga overslagen vermits ik zelf nooit een hond of kat heb gehad. Dankzij onze buren krijg ik wel dagelijks ÊÊn tot vier katten op bezoek in de tuin maar zelf heb ik ze dus niet als huisdier gehad. Ik heb zelfs jarenlang een panische angst voor zowel honden -als katten gehad. Ooit ben ik bijna onder een auto gesprongen (mijn vader trok me nog op tijd terug het voetpad op) toen er iemand langswandelde met een grote hond. Gelukkig heb ik die angst ondertussen overwonnen.

    1. Oh dat wist ik niet! Blijkbaar heb ik mensen getagd die angst voor honden hebben (gehad). Ik weet het wel weer uit te zoeken, haha. Sorry. Wel fijn dat je je angst hebt kunnen overwinnen. ❤
