Word-of-Day-Challenge-Sacrifice

~~~~~

Our pets are friendly towards each other…except…

…when it comes to food.

There is no way Taji would sacrifice

even one milligram of this bone

with a feline friend.

And I am sure this play fight would turn nasty

should Smudge(Cat) be nearing Candi’s food bowl

at meal times.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Nourish

~~~~~

The three main things a Labrador requires are...

…nourishment, being nourished…

 

…usually followed by more nourishment.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Equal

~~~~~

Equal usually refers to to two things being the same,

which a Kelpie and a Labrador are not.

However, it is often

not the size of the dog in the fight,

rather

the size of the fight in the dog

which equalises them…usually.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Cute

~~~~~

During my working life I have come into contact

with many (sheep dog) pups…all of which

have a cute factor about them.

Candi did not take long to settle into

Number 2 Son’s arms.

He may have had a head start as

she was a Christmas or birthday gift

from him and daughter-in-law to me.

I have never seen an ugly Labrador

at this stage of its life.

Taji still loves to be handled and

given some rough play.

 

However……

I think my all time favourite ‘cutes’ are

the several hundred photos I have

of ‘Nosy’ and ‘Rosy’ and Mum Limpy

on our last night in Africa 2013.

At 6-8 weeks old what more would a cub do

but munch on elephant dung

while watching tourists.

FOWChallenge-Durable

~~~~~““

durable

able to withstand wear, pressure, or damage; hard-wearing.

The above definition of ‘durable’ aptly describes

what an Australian Kelpie is supposed to be.

A hardworking pooch.

However, after ten to fifteen minutes of

chasing a rope around the backyard…

 


…the only thing Candi wants to do is sleep. 

Somehow I don’t think she would have made it on the farm. 

She even strikes this pose on a sunny day in mid-winter. 

And back in the day I think I could have outlasted her in summer.

She may be following Taji’s lead though.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Acquiesce

~~~~~

~~~~

acquiesce

accept something reluctantly but without protest.

Sixteen and eight weeks since they became ours,

and even at that tender age there was…

….no way Candi would acquiesce to Taji.

Until the vet told us they would not

kill or hurt each other,

I feared that I would be digging

grave for a very small dog.
