New Blog Design (!!) + My Adorable Dog



Ahem. I hope you’re all doing well! What do you think of my new blog design? I gave everyone a bit of a sneak peek at the new look when I changed up my sidebar, but now everything has been changed and completely covered in glitter. It’s very sparkly, huh? XD You’ll need to go to my blog’s homepage to see the full design. I’d absolutely love to get your feedback/opinions on it, so please leave a comment below and tell me what you think! ❤

Alright, now on the other topic of this post. 😀 As many of you already know, I have a Lab named Maude who is undoubtedly the most adorable dog to ever live. (No, of course I’m not prejudiced, why would you think that?) I’ve posted about her before, but it’s been a while, and so I decided it was about time that she got a whole post just to herself. PREPARE YOURSELVES FOR EXTREME CUTENESS, GUYS.


Maude wants to tell you all that she’s glad you’re taking the time to read this post, and that she hopes you’re having a great day. She also wants to know if you have treats, by any chance?

Maude loves sticks of all shapes and sizes. Her pen is full of them and she loves to carry them around and chew them to pieces.

HA HA look at her face! XD

Whew, all that chewing must be hard work.

AWW SHE’S SMILING. I love this picture!!

She’s even cute when she yawns, guys! JUST LOOK AT THAT FACE. *melts*

Introducing Maude’s duck toy. I discovered it in her pen and we played a game of fetch, but I may have forgotten to throw it more than once because I was too busy taking photos. XD

Now for a few photos of Maude on the front porch! I put glasses on her a little while ago, and this morning I decided to see if she would wear a hat. 😛 Surprisingly, she didn’t mind the hats that much! She just sat there and looked unimpressed. XD

Here, you can see Maude displaying her self-control by not eating the delicious treat that’s sitting right next to her. I taught her this trick a while ago, and it’s amazing how long she’ll wait even when the treat is right in front of her!

The hat fell down over her eyes while I was taking pictures, and she just laid there and didn’t even try to move it. XD

Well, I hope you enjoyed that post! 🙂 It was a lot of fun to take and edit the photos of Maude – I just can’t get over how cute she is. XD

Have a fantastic week!

What do you think of my new blog design? DO YOU AGREE THAT MAUDE IS ADORABLE?

      1. and they’re so friendly! and-
        and they take a lot of attention and they scare the cat and tear up things and bite mama and run around the neighbor hood like a mad dog and are toooooo much work.
        no, that was just Charger, not all dogs are like that.
        I can’t argue with that.
        smug smile
        but I’m still getting a dog when I’m older.
        after I have kids, so they can help.
        hmmf. ‘k fine.

  2. HAPPY STATIC ELECTRICITY DAY CLARA! pokes you and electrocutes you XD Awwww, Maude is soooo cute. ❤❤❤ Amazing photos. 😀 I LOVE the glitter in your design, however, I preferred the last font you had for “Clara and Co.” . Maybe change the font back, but add glitter to it? My opinion though, you do you. 😀

  3. I LOVE your blog design! So glittery and pretty and perfectly amazing! 😉 Also, Maude is quite adorable. I love how unimpressed she looks with the hats. XD I have a yellow lab named Brees, and she and Maude would definitely be friends if they ever met, haha.

    1. Ughhh, I really wish I knew why you can’t see my blog! ARGH. What kind of error message are you getting?
      EEP I KNOW, RIGHT? Haha, yes, Maude absolutely loves other dogs and Maggie seems so sweet. I hope they can meet someday! 😀 And thanks for telling me your favorite pictures – I’m so glad you liked them! 🙂
      Thank you for your comment, Allison!

      1. Yes, it’s sad. :/ I know why it is, though. It’s because our virus protector or computer “saferizer” (sorry, the proper term has escaped me XD XD) blocks all sorts of things in a quite unreasonable manner. :/
        But anyway, YES. XD SHE’S SO CUTE! Hee hee, of course! 🙂
