Weekly Photo Challenge: Object 2

Meet Rocky, my mother’s dog….

"Is it dinner time yet?" thought Rocky for the 19th time that day!

“Is it dinner time yet?” thought Rocky for the 19th time that day!

Yesterday was my mum’s 83rd birthday so we all went to celebrate with cake!!

Which brings me to the photo challenge of ‘object’.

To be precise, I will show you the object of Rocky’s desire……

"Mmmm cake!" thought Rocky hungrily!

“Mmmm cake!” thought Rocky hungrily!

"Mmmm cake!" thought Rocky again!

“Mmmm cake!” thought Rocky again!

"Mmmm cake!' thought Rocky in a single minded way!

“Mmmm cake!’ thought Rocky in a single minded way!

"Mmmm cake, it's mine!" thought Rocky as he tried to manoeuvre his head towards the cake!

Here he is relaxing next to my mum in the evening!!

"If I lie like this, " said Rocky, Son of Spike to himself, "it makes my ears stick up like alsatians ears do!"

“If I lie like this, ” said Rocky, Son of Spike to himself, “it makes my ears stick up like alsatians ears do!”

 

"Blimey. that light's bright on your camera sister of mine!!" commented Rocky, Son of Spike, to me! SISTER??? I don't think so!!

Is It Something I Said?

Whilst perusing my photographs I suddenly noticed how many of the creatures I photograph are totally ignoring me!!

Well, have a look and see if I’m right!

"Ducks...listen to me...ignore mad camera woman and she'll soon go away!" hissed Suzuki Swan!

“Ducks…listen to me…ignore mad camera woman and she’ll soon go away!” hissed Suzuki Swan!

"The only thing to do now is RUN even if it doesn't work in water....RUN Christine RUN!" screeched Corinne the moment she espied the camera!

“The only thing to do now is RUN even if it doesn’t work in water….RUN Christine RUN!” screeched Corinne the moment she espied the camera!

"Don't look now but she's back!" whispered Darren to the other two!

“Don’t look now but she’s back!” whispered Darren to the other two!

"I shall keep my beak in the air and continue with my course, thus letting her believe I haven't seen her....mwah ha ha ha!" cackled Carrie Cormorant!

“I shall keep my beak in the air and continue with my course, thus letting her believe I haven’t seen her….mwah ha ha ha!” cackled Carrie Cormorant!

"Hey Geraint," quacked Des, "Put your head under your wing like me... that'll spoil her shot!"

“Hey Geraint,” quacked Des, “Put your head under your wing like me… that’ll spoil her shot!”

And that’s only the water birds!

Look it continues…..

"Eat my shorts!" said Randy as he turned on his heels and left!

“Eat my shorts!” said Randy as he turned on his heels and left!

"I shall be glad when this snow has gone and look white once again!" sighed Perry. "Shhh! she's back again...look the other way and look casual!" neighed Pint-size!

“I shall be glad when this snow has gone and I look white once again!” sighed Perry.
“Shhh! she’s back again…look the other way and look casual!” neighed Pint-size!

"Resist the urge to stare like we usually do...Ewes, eyes forward....copy me!" baa-ed Shirley!

“Resist the urge to stare like we usually do…Ewes, eyes forward….copy me!” baa-ed Shirley!

"Tweet tweet!  Not looking at you, Tweet tweet, There's nothing you can do!" said Basil rather unkindly!

“Tweet tweet! Not looking at you, Tweet tweet, There’s nothing you can do!” said Basil rather unkindly!

Fortunately some creatures are not so unkind!

Three cheers for One-Horn!

Three cheers for One-Horn!

Henry came up to see what was going on and didn't ignore me!

"Wonder when you'll give me something to eat!" said Rocky contentedly sitting in the sun.

And That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful 5

I have 2 things that I am thankful for today!

One is being thankful for the most amazing and wonderful friend ever whose name is Adrienne. She would never allow me to put a photo of her in a blog even if I had ever managed to get a photo of her! However, I do have a photo that she sent to me of a little dog that that she met on a beach and here it is….

“It’s windy on this beach!” said Piggle Pug!
What sort of dog ARE you?

The other thing I’m thankful for is my wonderful, talented mum who is staying with me this week after a hand operation. And as an antidote to the strange little Piggle Pug above, here is my mum’s very pretty dog-Rocky!

“Wonder when I’ll have something to eat!” said Rocky contentedly sitting in the sun.

So I guess it’s friends and mums today!
