guidance or recommendations offered
with regard to prudent future action.

In her final months with us,

we are sure Maggie gave her cousin

plenty of advice.

It may sound silly but so often we see

Taji do things that Maggie did

and which we never taught

or showed either of them.


Word of the Day Challenge:  Advice











a substance, such as mud or dust,
that soils someone or something

The dirt on Maggie’s face

…left us…

….in no doubt that…

..someone had been digging

in the garden.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Dirt






be unlike or dissimilar.

I think it would be fair to say that…

…as pups Candi and Taji differed in appearance.

And that there has not been

much of a change in three years.

They are the best of friends, however.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge:  Differ








come into or be in contact with.

Little Taji enjoyed being in contact with MGW

during the ride to her new home.

Three and a half years later she still enjoys human contact.

If I am working in the shed I only need

stop work for a minute and Taji will be

in for a pat and shake hands.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge:  Touch









determined in character, action, or ideas

The pose of a

resolute pup.

Taji had determined to free herself from her

temporary enclosure after her visit to the Vet.

Not the post and wire netting.

All there to top her digging her way out.

As her six week confinement progressed

she began to stretch up on hind legs trying to escape

And nothing would/will stop her bouncy greeting

each and every time she is

let off her chain for exercise.
