Here Doggie, Come here boy....

My daughter and I finished this puzzle yesterday afternoon. She loves dogs and I plan to have this one framed for her room. We'd been working on it for a few weeks, with a lot of the work being done by me when I was sick. We need to stop doing 1000 piece puzzles for they stick off the edge of the coffee table (or get a larger coffee table, but I happen to like this copper top one). I think there are 62 dogs in this puzzle, from all around the world. I also need to find a better way to photograph the puzzle--if you want to see it more closely, click on the picture.

In the comments of my last post, Murf asked what I would have turned out like if I had listened to "good music." (For her, I think good music means Country Music from the 80s). I'm sure that if I listened to what Murf considers "good music," instead of doing a dog puzzle, I'd be putting together puzzles like the one above!


  1. Great dog puzzle! And I admire you and your daughter's 1000 piece ambitions.

    I'd stick with the music from your past, and stay away from any country music from the 80's - yikes!

  2. Not so much country as British Pop and there is something British Pop-like about that second puzzle. I could hear one listening to Queen while putting it together.

  3. I tried to do a puzzle last year (Washington, DC from the air) and my cats tore it up everytime I got it going. I can only do them on my dining room table, and there's no way to keep the cats out of there, so I am off puzzles until they die - I guess.

  4. Diane, the only way I like country music is live--but I'll mostly stick to Rock, blues or jazz

    Murf: Queen, I did have their album, Night at the Opera, but that came out in the mid-70s.

    Kenju, the DC puzzle sounds neat

    Ed, Good suggestion, wonder what Murf thinks about that song and was it really titled the way it was as a code for LSD?

  5. And here I thought this was your 500th post and you were posting a pic of a 500-pc. puzzle.

    1000 is a lot of pieces. I've only completed one to date, Thomas Kinkade's St. Nicholas' Circle. It took about a month.

    BTW, what do you have against princesses and unicorns? ;)

  6. all about the blues and jazz

    love puzzles, it builds patience.

  7. i do love puzzles, and dogs. I think we would get along.
