I'm As Corny As Kansas In August......I'm In Love With A Wonderful Guy

Yes, it's true, I'm in love, and he is truly a wonderful guy. Though a bit of a mutt, he is a very handsome, friendly and full of life one year old.  He told the people at the shelter that his name is Dodger, so I guess, we'll stick with that. He has had a pretty sketchy life for his first year, but seems to have retained a positive spirit through it all and is ready to share all he has to offer in a forever home.

As I was driving home from the shelter after meeting and falling in love with Dodger, the old song from South Pacific, "I'm In Love With A Wonderful Guy", came on the radio.

I'm as corny as Kansas in August
High as a flag on the 4th of July
If you'll excuse the expression I use
I'm in love with a wonderful guy

I am in a conventional dither
with a conventional star in my eye
And you will note there's a lump in my throat
When I speak of that wonderful guy

Corny, I know, but it was exactly how I felt after meeting Dodger.

Dodger has to spend one more night at the shelter so he can have his little boy parts tampered with first thing tomorrow. Doc will pick him up before I come home from work. Needless to say, I can't wait. I'm sure there will be surprises, both good and bad, as with any new member of a family, especially a canine member. But for now, I'm in love with a wonderful guy, and I can't wait to get him home.


  1. He does look like a wonderful guy! Congratulations to you ~ and tell Dodger he's a lucky mutt for sure.

  2. Congratulations on the newest member of your family. He looks like a winner! My mother used to sing that song all the time around the farm growing up. Dodger is lucky to have you.

    Have a wonderfully blessed day and as I'm trying to get that song out of my head !!!

    God bless.....

  3. I´m so happy for you! It´s great to have someone greet you at the door, and I´m sure he will be a great friend!

    CONGRATULATIONS on sweet Dodger! How wonderful that you went to the shelter and found him! You'll probably find out soon that he found you too. I do so love the little pooches! Enjoy him. He looks like a darling little rascal!

  5. Glad you found a wonderful dog.

  6. He's a love! We found our Tootsie the same way. I wish you all lots of love and kisses!

  7. Lucky for both of you.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope to see you again soon.

  8. I enjoyed reading your blog and reading about Dodger. It's funny because my daughter just lost her dog this past weekend and his name was Dodgie! She has been checking the kennels around here for another dog. We will surely miss Dodgie though. Good luck with Dodger.
