See Sasha Perform!

23 Aug

One of Chicki’s  most talented friends is Sasha, the Frisbee-catching dog.

Frisbees have been a part of Sasha’s life for many, many years. She’s ten, now, but showing few signs of slowing down.

Here’s an action shot of her mid air!

Chicki Sees The Sea!

10 Sep

Ron, Chicki and I live close to the river, and spend most of our recreational time near it shores.

But sometimes a change is in order, and a few weeks ago we chose to drive further, and took Chicki to the seaside.

Dogs aren’t allowed on this beach, but nevertheless they’re quite welcome on the promenade. Chicki came nose-to-nose with many friendly canines.

She saw the waves as they came crashing in. She heard their roar.

And best of all, she smelled the salty sea!

Let’s Take a Walk….

Chicki going out…

I’ve lived with many canines during my life, but none surpasses Chicki in the excitement stakes!

And what makes her most excited?

That’s easy:  it’s the daily drive to the park, followed by –you guessed it– a walk.

Not just any old walk, though: it’s got to be where the most enticing smells can be found. Luckily for me, this goes hand in hand with beautiful bush and water views.

Doesn’t she look a picture of happiness? I wonder what’s on her mind…..

Patience is a Virtue…

13 Aug

Patience is a virtue…

I’ve heard it said since childhood.

Sometimes it’s hard for us humans to be patient, but modern canines seem to have mastered the art.

Waiting to be taken out, waiting for their owner to come home, waiting for a game, a treat….the list is endless.

Our Chicki is a model pet as she waits for me to take photographs: of the surroundings, of people, of other animals, and of her.

What a sweetheart!
