Have you had trouble commenting on my blog lately? One blogger suggested this work-around: If you use the back arrow after the error message appears, fill in your email address and name again. Then your comment should go through, and WordPress will recognize you in the future. Thank you! (An Oops! You may need to sign out of WordPress first.)
Ha ha! A little of both. The second dog looks too cool for school though.
Also, Marian, I had trouble commenting at first again. I had to log out and log back in, then it worked. Weird, huh?
I think they would probably rather be at home and lying somewhere in a cool living room or den.
Thanks for sharing.
PAT, if only dogs could talk, we’d know for sure. I hope you didn’t have to use a work-around to comment here. Thanks! 😀
ARLENE, first of all, thanks for persisting with commenting. I discovered the blockage with WordPress comments last week and contacted a support person at Jetpack, dubbed the “Mad Hatter,” but the problem obviously has not been solved. Other bloggers with self-hosted websites, like mine, are experiencing the same problem.
Hope you have a cool Wednesday, my friend. 😀
Looks like a very boring doggy amusement ride.
Yes, Jean, the dogs look bored, but I think the pet shop owner was busy looking for potential owners. 😀
What a fun and funny photo, Marian. Based on the comments, it was taken in front of a pet shop?
My comment showed up without issues, Marian. So, once someone has used the back arrow after the error message and put in their email address and name again, the comment goes through and WordPress will recognize them in the future.
We bloggers are persistent, aren’t we. Thanks for telling me what’s happening on your end, a “silver lining,” I’d say.
About the photo: A pet shop owner at the mall gives his dogs an airing as he advertises his pets for sale: Caring for his dogs and looking for good pet owners at the same time, smart man. ;-D
Hardy and I are both Covid positive and had to cut our much anticipated holiday with our Ontario family short by a couple of days! We are not sick as triple vaccinated, so just cold symptoms and boredom setting in like that first dog on your photo! A nephew came all the way from B.C. To visit our whole family and we have to sit distanced in our back yard with our masks on. It just sucks!
Elfrieda, I feel your pain as we had this experience in January, triple vaccinated too. I’m glad you have a silver lining along with the disappointment: Getting to see your Ontario family a short while and also visiting a nephew. Even at a distance, you have a connection with him.
Sending good wishes for a quick recovery–both you and Hardy. 😀
Hi Marian, this is a delightful picture. The first dog looks how I sometimes feel after lunch on a work day.
Well, Robbie, you get so much done, I guess you pick up speed after your lunch break. I think the pet shop owner found a great way to advertise his business and give his doggies an airing every day. Thank YOU! 😀
I took this photo when I was at a Chic Fil-A several months ago. The dogs looked so self-assured and relaxed. I hope the owner of the pet shop bought some waffle fries for his friends.
Like Robbie, the St. Bernard looked very tired or asleep. That’s how I felt today cooking about 4 pounds of thick smoked cured bacon for lunch…and then eating a couple of BLTs.
Thanks for adding detail, dear. The dogs appreciate a caring owner, and your wife appreciates you fixing lunch today with lots of leftovers for future meals. 😀
ha ha. I’m glad we find out the photographer! Priceless and …. yes, mostly wordless. The photo fits me very much today after a couple of days of tidying for some wonderful and welcome guests … and then enjoying hosting. Not complaining!! But tired.
I’m sure you and Stuart put your hearts into hosting. It’s wonderful to welcome friends into our homes. But then there is the laundry and other clean-up after they leave. You are kind to comment, especially since you are so tired. Some rest will perk you right up. Thanks so much, Melodie!
Fatima, according to Facebook, you’ve had a nice family vacation, so I hope your comment refers to the doggies, not your life. Have a great Thursday! 😀
This reminds me of the childrens’ books “Big Dog, Little Dog” or “Go, Dog, Go!” which was a personal favorite growing-up. This owner has a creative mind and a joie de vivre. I’m a big dog fan, so thanks for sharing. 🙂 P.S. I have not had a problem with comments, although I missed last week.
Thanks for enriching our conversation with your favorite dog books, Melanie. I’m glad to know you aren’t struggling to comment. I’m sorry when some chats get blocked because of mysterious gremlins in cyberspace. 😀
I am going to try commenting although all I can say about feeling is that I am more tired than any dog ever was right now! Let’s see if I can comment. I posted on Monday and specifically heard from a couple people that they could not post and there were some other response through other social media so I assume it was the same for them.
You are right. I did have to log out!
Luanne, you should see a comment on your last post. I logged out, filled in the details, and copied my “saved” comment into the box, and posted it. I think you’ll have to moderate my reply since I’m a new commenter. You may even see a duplicate response from me. Sigh!
Such a cute photo! My husband and I share our home with three dogs that I have rescued, one at a time, off the streets over the years. Earlier this week, as I was leaving the hospital after having physical therapy on my injured right shoulder, I found yet another dog wandering around the parking lot. Thankfully, I soon found his owner. We really don’t need any more dogs!
I can’t comment or like posts, except from my WordPress Reader. I’ve done the signing out/signing back in thing in the past, but that doesn’t always work for me.
I’m glad you enjoyed the photo. You are compassionate, finding a stray (and straying) dogs. You are also smart, offering an additional “hack” for the hard-to-post comments. Thanks, heaps, Linda Lee!
I’ve never before that this sort of problem with blog comments. Now I’m finding others have come up against this brick wall too. That’s the miracle of cybers-space. Friends helping friends! 😀
Love the photos of the doggies. Thanks for the hack about how to comment. Applying it now, if need be…
However you arrived, It’s always nice to see you here, Ally! 😀
OK. Let’s see if this works!
Hi Marian, I just commented without doing anything. . .so weird. Sorry, I don’t remember what I wanted to say a few days ago. I think this is how daughter’s dogs may have looked when they finally got home after their last vacation. 🙂
Your week sounds like mine. Hectic. I hope your weekend will give you some time to WINE-nd down. Thanks for showing up in spite of it all, Merril. 😀
I have been having that problem with posting, not just here, either. Switching browsers helped, but re-inputting info is better.
You are so loyal and persistent. I think Barb Vitelli’s interview says it all. Thanks, Jacquie! 😀
My issue (this has only happens on some sites) is when I leave a comment, the sender is listed as “anonymous.” I find it rather baffling as half of the comments on someone’s post have been labeled the same way while the other half show us who sent them. This has been going on for about two weeks, and it only seems to happen on a few sites. I don’t think I’ve had a problem on your site.
On another matter, you made a comment on my blog about a recent post you wrote about getting a push from others at the time (It was partly in reference to The Swing by Stevenson.) I just went to read that piece on your site, but I don’t see it anywhere. Hmm, more WordPress mysteries.
Oh, my gosh! Too bad we can’t edit comments after we post them, Pete. I realized (too late) The Swing blog post was one I created–still in the queue–not published yet. Sorry!
Seven years ago, I did write about Stevenson’s “swing” here though: https://marianbeaman.com/2014/09/10/come-to-the-storybook-chair-the-story-book-chair/
Enjoy your time with family this weekend! 😀
Just look at those sweethearts 😁. Every picture tells a story .
It’s a win-win, for the doggies and for the pet-shop owner. You are SO very right, Cherry, every picture tells a story. Have a super week, my dear! : -D
A sign next to a dog that says “Don’t Touch.” My dogs, especially the younger one, would go nuts. “Pet me, touch me, throw me a ball, snuggle with me.” Cute photo! It’s the dog days of summer here.
I didn’t realize one of the days this week is dubbed National Dog Day. If you looked at any other comments, you know this photo refers to a pet shop owner at the mall who gives his dogs an airing as he advertises his dogs, trying to find good homes for them. I guess it’s hot in Ithaca and environs. September will bring cooler temps, and blushing foliage, my hope for you. Thank you, Elaine! 😀
