Definitely a mistake for a stranger

to set foot in our patch of the world.

I have yet to see anyone harmed…



by the bluster and noise 🙂

In this case I think both Maggie and stranger

were happy to see the fence.


Word of the Day Challenge: Mistake











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 the Day Challenge: Sacrifice



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,


the size of the fight in the dog

which equalises them…usually.




Word of the Day Challenge: Equal



Reminiscent definition

If you say that one thing is reminiscent of another,

you mean that it reminds you of it.

Masaggie showed Taji at a very early age…

the best places for resting...


sleeping and….

how to sssstretch.

So when we see all these Maggie(isms)

we reminisce about Maggie.

Or do all Labradors behave like this.

We probably don’t want an answer to that question. 🙂

We see Taji doing things which Maggie did

and wonder did Maggie ‘teach’ Taji?

Or is it because Maggie and Taji were/are related?

We believe in the last option.

Maggie’s GGG and Taji’s GGGG were litter mates.

Small world?

One thing is for sure.

Maggie and Taji bonded almost immediately.

Maggie did not want to know

the little kelpie when she arrived.
