Take That!

Last Monday was Book Club/Writer's Group night. Since I was early, I decided to drive by the covered bridge to see if there were any birds lurking about. I didn't find any bird opportunities, but did find a dog. I thought he was a stray since I didn't see a collar, but he looks well cared for so he probably lives at the house up on the hill behind me. I dug out my camera to take his picture...
 ...and he promptly walked away, leaving me with yet another moon shot for my collection...
....lifted his leg, which is a 'lifer' for me...
 ...and then turned around and looked at me as if to say, "Take that!" I guess he didn't want his picture taken.
Then there is my beloved pup, Fergus. His pop bought him a new toy. He is obsessed with it. So much so that we had to hide it when he wasn't looking. We put it in the cabinet, which you see behind him. Unfortunately, the nose knows, so we had to give it back or risk having sawdust in the carpet. I think it is laced with the doggie equivelent of catnip.

The dog does look really well cared for. Fergus looks so much like the dog I had, he is a sweetie. So you think maybe Dognip?

That is a good-looking Boxer. I certainly hope he didn't get loose without his owner's knowledge.

Fergus is a real cutie! What is that toy? Stella never learned how to play. Her former owners were quite ill and elderly.

Funny! :-)

Teach you to sneak up behind a strange dog:) I keep thinking I am glad he was friendly enough to just dis you ... he could have been an unfriendly sort. As for Fergus's toy ... if you ever figure out what is on it, I want some. I would love for Izzi to be obsessed with a toy.
