LOL - Thanks for the giggle this early morning.... This is really great and very, very funny, Patricia!
I agree - with Joy and Colette!!!!
I like your link too.... :-) #411768

Julie Turner March 06, 2004

This is too funny! You captured it perfectly. Maybe you should send Martha a copy for her "records." #411828

Darren K. Fisher level-classic March 07, 2004

I have to agree with Julie I am sure Martha would love a copy. This is such an awesome capture. I know we will see this one again. #412228

Susie Peek-Swint March 07, 2004

Great shot Patricia -- love the thread that followed also!! #413004

Patricia Marroquin March 07, 2004

Cathy, Kristen, Carolyn, Joy, Bill, Jason, Susan, Murry, Colette, Carol, Evy, Julie, Darren and Susan, thank you all so very much!

I'm not so sure this will be among the finalists, and if not, that's OK with me. Your comments mean a lot!

Don't think Martha would appreciate a copy of this for her records. LOL! :-)

Someone told me that one of the tabloids had the funniest lead on this story: "It's curtains for Martha!" LOL! #413078

Peggy Wolff March 22, 2004

This is GREAT! So funny! I just looked at your gallery for the first time and you have so many beautiful images. I hope to be seeing this one again! #440375

Patricia Marroquin March 22, 2004

Oh, thank you so much, Margaret! That's very kind of you. This image combines two favorite things for me: dogs (especially Goldens) and newspapers (my profession). :-) #440832

Jessica Hughes March 22, 2004

This photo is great! I needed that laugh this afternoon!
Jessica #440923

Patricia Marroquin March 28, 2004

Thank you, Nancy! :-) #451392

Jean Papo April 01, 2004

Great shot, Patricia! Very funny, and most appealing too!!! PS I miss Martha's tv show, no matter her guilt/innocence...! (It was funny too) #458555

Patricia Marroquin April 02, 2004

Thanks, Jean. I've gotta admit that I miss her show too. It's humorous because it's so hard to believe one person can be that talented. I'm in awe. I love to watch people create things that I could never do myself. That's the appeal of her show. :-) #459128

Jean Papo April 02, 2004

Well, maybe she'll be back, a humbler -is that a word?, gentler Martha, haha! #459131

Jean Papo April 12, 2004

Congratulations, Patricia!!! Well done!! #474425

Peggy Wolff April 12, 2004

So glad to see this here! I hope you win first place with it, it is a photo with great color, a great idea, very funny, great DOF, and a great angle. And of course shows the times, which I love to see in photos. I am routing for you! #476731

Claudia Kuhn level-classic April 12, 2004

Good one! Congrats!! #476905

Susan T. Parady April 12, 2004

I'm glad to see this in the finals, Patricia, it is very clever and well shot! Congratulations! #476957

Patricia Marroquin April 12, 2004

Hi, Jean, Kasia, Kath, K, Margaret, Claudia and Susan. Thank you!

Although I set this shot up, Bixby really does retrieve the newspaper each day. The Star is easy for him to bring in; but the Los Angeles Times can sometimes be a challenge, and he definitely can't get the whole Sunday Times in his mouth! LOL!

Margaret, that is such a compliment, thank you very much! #477462

Carol Brill April 12, 2004

Congratulations, Patricia, hope you gave Bixby a big tip for this winning combination!! Best of luck! #477715

Colette M. Metcalf April 12, 2004

Congrats again, Patricia!! #478391

Stephen Zacker April 12, 2004

Well Done. Congratulations! #478552

Congrats on your win and this fun (maybe not for Martha) image Patricia!! #478998

William C. Raco level-addict April 12, 2004

Still makes me laugh.
Great job, Patricia.
Excellent sense of humor

Dale Ann Cubbage April 12, 2004

Congrats Patricia! This is hilarious! #479514

Patricia Marroquin April 12, 2004

Thank you, Carol, Colette, Stephen, Murry, Bill and Dale!

Carol, I'm an enabler -- I give tubby Bixby more treats than I should, much to my husband's dismay. So he gets rewarded every day. :-) #479715

Darren K. Fisher level-classic April 13, 2004

Thanks to Martha you and Bixby came up with one great image. I still love it. Congrats to you both. #480512
