A few weeks ago I was kindly asked if I wanted to be a featured guest at Pibbles & Me, a wonderfully humorous and uplifting blog I’ve been following for…gosh, a year or two now at least. My post What Can Dogs Teach Us About Life is ready for your viewing pleasure, so get clicking and spend some time reading my wordy goodness! It was a rather strange post as I wasn’t entirely sure what to write about, but hey, it all worked out in the end!
I’ll cut this post short, no long rants today, dear blog reader. I’m all smiles about my guest post on Pibbles & Me and that’ll do me just fine!
I was intrigued by the Weekly Photo Challenge this week because whilst I have recently snapped a few photos that show movement, those that really caught my eye showed little or none at all! As you can see, our dog Ben (Benji, BenTen, BenBen, Benjamina…aaand so on) has the knack for staying very still. This doesn’t reflect his true nature where he usually lives life at a hundred miles an hour. Buy hey, that’s a lot of energy and he deserves a rest!
Doesn’t he look so comfy cosy right there? I took about 30 photos of him dozing and slumbering, something of a rarity considering he spends most of his waking hours sniffing, licking and chasing stuff, not to mention begging me to throw his beloved tennis ball.
This last photo I took in our back garden a few days ago. Given that a lot of the UK has been subjected to torrential rain this week, it seemed appropriate to show how our neck of the woods has survived the drenching for the most part. I loved how the clouds seemed to be smeared across the sky by the movement of the wind around them, as if they somehow had mass like sand and were slowly eroding.
