FYI

I'm sure you've all noticed that blogs that never had word verification suddenly have it. I was a bit surprised when almost all of the blogs I read put up word verification. I was even more surprised to find out that I had it enabled on my blog.
Now I don't know why it happened but it's there BUT you don't have to use it. I've tried it on other blogs and it works. Just ignore the captcha and submit your comment. It will go through. I think that maybe it only has to by typed by anonymous commenters?

Today's picture is blurry as can be but it makes me laugh

Gibbs apparently thinks he can fly. He does one heck of a takeoff from the couch and he completely avoids the bottom two steps when he comes downstairs. I've also discovered that he has magical powers. He'll run off ahead of me and when I call him he's standing behind me.

Too cute! I would love to see him and give him a cuddle. He must go a mile a minute as fast as his little legs can carry him. I think it's all these terrible comments that have been going around Blogland. They are awful and I got one and so did some others. I think they have tried filters and things, and there is no other way. I don't mind it if it keeps these people away. Besides, it is much easier to read then the old kind.

Thanks for clarifying about the word verification. I will try leaving this comment without verifying. Hope it works!

You wouldn't believe how many running shots I take to get a good one. I have had someone stand away and call the dogs back and forth shooting each time.

Bundle of energy! I'm going to try ignoring the captcha

Puppies are just so much fun - he is so adorable, just want to snorgle him to pieces.

The folks with embedded comments don't have the word verification issue. Thanks for the update on ignoring the word verification. I'll give that a go.

Gibbs is so cute and he's fast too. I can tell by all the photographs you take of him.

Have a terrific day. My best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

Of course puppies can fly! He's such a cutie!

There seemed to have been a big spam attack and Blogger put those word verification on blogs. Since you don't have to type in the numbers, none of it makes sense.

Thanks for the tip on the comments. I will try it.

I'm not knocking Google after they helped to remove the scraped work from my blog. I'm sure there is a reason for what they did. I honestly don't think they are effin' with us for the fun of it.

Yep, I've been reading about the issue with word verification too Ann. I changed my comments to 'embedded' and the captcha image is now gone. It does work to just ignore it though and publish your comment so don't really understand why Google would be adding it to all our blogs? Gibbs is flying! Think you should have called him The Flash LOL!

I wondered about all the word verification.

The blur actually helps the picture. It gives a good sense of motion.

Hmmm....a frisky pup with magical powers. Sounds like life could get interesting for you!! :)
