Word-of-Day-Challenge-Mesmerising

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

mesmerising

capturing one’s complete attention as if by magic.
~~~~~

Even as a youngster Taji found

food mesmerising…


 Food in toys…

 


…and she ignored all around her until

there was no more food in the Kong.

~~~~~

make (someone) feel completely baffled.
~~~~~

She could smell food.

She could hear food.

She found it perplexing the first few times

she encountered her kong.

 

That only lasted a few feeds though,

after which she was extracting her food

from the Kong nearly as quickly as if

it was in her bowl.

~~~~~

guile

sly or cunning intelligence.

You would think that butter wouldn’t

melt in Candi’s mouth.

Right??

Wrong!

The number of times we have watched her start barking

in her own daybed, charge along the house still barking.

By this stage Taji, now awake is trying frantically

to catch up and be in on the kill;

only to see Candi stop suddenly,

Taji continues and Candi trots back

and settles down in Taji’s bed as in the above photo.

Many times we have also seen the same happen

when there is a bone which Taji has been

chewing and Candi wants.

And Labradors are supposed to be intelligent.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Astound

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

shock or greatly surprise.
~~~~~

To say we were astounded when Maggie returned…

to her bed at the back door in this state

would be an understatement.

 

 

To top off the day she looked as guilty as sin.

We never did find a place in  the garden

that had been freshly turned and

Maggie never returned to bed in that state

ever again. 🙂

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Share

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

have a portion of (something) with another or others.
~~~~~

Two pups leaning life’s lesson the hard way...

There is no sharing when it comes to food.

Also note the bone near young Taji.

But she wants the bone already taken.

 

 

We used to have a chuckle at the

companionship in this scene.

That was, however, until we noticed Taji

sitting out in inclement weather while

Candi was nice and warm in Taji’s kennel.

I don’t know why Kelpie’s think they

can bully Labradors or for that matter

why Labradors allow it to happen  🙂
