It's darker in the mornings now. Autumn waiting in the wings. Our saunter through the cherry orchard down to the stream delayed until seven thirty. Today there's an almost Hebridean light. Clear and bright .
Bob and Sophie love running water. They drink long and lavishly pausing only briefly to chase the butterflies. Bob stands on the edge of the small waterfall, his paw tentatively testing the water on the other side to see how deep it is. A look of deep concentration on his face. Sophie is less prudent. She barges past him, tumbles and finds herself chin deep in the stream. Big brother pauses as if to say " that'll teach you ". Sophie's not bothered, she's already in pursuit of a small trout.
There was a time when this innocence would have passed me by. Now I find myself laughing out loud at these carefree creatures. Dog owners have the gift of being able to see the world through a pair of untamed eyes. And what a world it is when you're seven months old.
So right. It's fantastic to have the time to observe the dogs.
We're walking earlier now...spring is nearly here.
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
What lovely photos of those two puppies. They are certainly having a good time!
Sophie is really an all-rounder......trout fishing now added to her list of endeavours.
You made me laugh today at the antics of the angels today....we dog owners(lovers) have special hearts and eyes that enable us to live through every moment of our canine friends (family) lives with lots of love and humour.
Enjoy the weekend.
Your post today reminds me of that famous Roger Caras quote, "Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole."
What a world indeed. Bertie was reckless like Sophie at her age, but thankfully has acquired a modicum of prudence now.
so true!! It has been my experience that the females are always a bit more adventuresome......xoxo
Well said, Angus. One of the many things I've enjoyed while watching the pup grow is seeing her observe things and learn. She looks up to watch airplanes fly by, is fascinated by cabbage moths, beetles, the cat. She can't figure out why it is okay for alpha to dig in the dirt with that metal thing but not okay for her to help dig holes with her paws. Bath water-bad..any other water is good!
and what a world it is.
and thank you for sharing yours.
and the new header? PERFECT !!!!!
Their personalities really do complement one another.
Spirit and grace.
Laughter and love.
Many of Sophie's pictures are just like the one on your new header (very nice, by the way.) She just looks straight at you, gives you her best look and wishes you would hurry just a little. She is so adorable!
Jo and Stella
I agree - a world full of wonders! What a lucky pair of Pons.
I'm enjoying some of those same moments with our new pup! :)
