  1. This is so much fun! I love the sequence of the pictures…the great adventure.

  2. Loretta Tweed says:

    I loved it!…:)

  3. So Bella is having a lot of fun, but if the CLAP (Crab Lovers And Protectors) gets a hold of you, Al, you’re gonna get pretty darned uncomfortable.

  4. These are adorable! And the crab is amazing.

    Patty got great shots and you got to show off your square-dance calling abilities. Bella sure is growing! Great crab captures, too.

    I can’t believe Bella didn’t get her nose pinched by the crab, especially while posing for the penultimate photo! Brilliant photography again Patty, this blog is becoming a bit of a Hood duet πŸ™‚

  7. I’d read of lobsters performing quadrilles – in some great work of fiction, I forget. (Alice in Wonderland, was it?)
    Now crabs with spaniels – well!

    Great Patty, I loved this. x

  9. pegoleg says:

    Ha ha ha! Those are fabulous. Were any noses pinched in the making of this dance video?

  10. Excellent photographs. I’ve danced with some real klutzes, but feel sorry for the crab. Dianne

  11. Cindy B says:

    The photos are wonderful. That Bella sure knows how to have fun, and so do you two!

      Those two dogs at the beach are enough laughs for a lifetime. I’m already bemoaning when the cold weather will cut down on our walks.

  12. Bernice says:

    Oh so funny! And very impressive that you remembered all that vocabulary from 6th grade when we had square dancing in gym class!

    ah as I see from comment above…, her name is Bella….what a beauty she is and so clever t be able to dance with a crab. I expect the crab’s mom thinks it is beutiful too and I am sure it is but give me a cutie doggy anytime…..Loved it I sang it to the music

  14. Coming East says:

    Way to go, Patty! Those are fabulous pictures! It is so difficult to capture photos of crabs because they move so fast. And Bella is precious!

Your turn to write, but please don't be wittier than me. My ego is quite fragile.
