having or showing a lack of common sense or judgement;
absurd and foolish.


Two silly young pups.

Two silly not so young pups.






a way in which a thing is done or happens.


I have more than once stated that 

Maggie’s GGreat Grandmother and

Taji’s GGGreat Grandfather were litter mates.

The manner in which Taji goes about

everyday life is so similar to Maggie…

…that it has to be hereditary and not just coincidence.

Well we like to think it is  🙂




facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education;
the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.

Taji had had the run of her breeder’s house

for the first few weeks of her life.

She thought the same rules applied in her new home.

And although it was hard to see her

looking in the window…



…she soon discovered a comfortable spot

where she could demonstrate

all the sadness a Labrador can muster.



A few months later they were allowed to

put their front feet on the mat inside the door.

And considering their treats are stashed just

inside another door they are happy

with this arrangement.

Both of them happily put themselves to bed

in their kennels at least twice a day

even when they are not tied up.

And like all youngsters of a similar age

they still push the boundaries.

For example, Candi has lost some of

her Monday free time because she was caught

pushing over a neighbour’s rubbish bin.

They quickly learn that actions

have consequences.



Word of the Day Challenge:  Knowledge







complying or willing to comply with an order or request;
submissive to another’s authority.

Taji is obedient

(like a teenager is)

and when told,

she will return to her kennel…

…and adopt this pose.  She always hass to have the last word.
