Friends

20 Nov

Just as humans benefit from friendship,

Chicki and Kelvin: friends

so do our canine companions.

Take for example our young Maltese, Chicki. As an ‘only’ dog, at home she misses out on contact with other four-legged friends.

Out and about, though, it’s a different story. Although she’s choosy, she has several furry comrades.

Meet Kelvin! He’s a strong, ruggedly handsome Kelpie: his manners are impeccable. Exuding charm, his calm demeanour  makes him an ideal pal for our young lady.

They often rendezvous by the river, and watch, enthralled, the goings-on of everyone: human and animal.

And there’s more to their bond that meets the eye. Both Kelvin and Chicki are ex RSPCA dogs: they’ve known another life.

Is it any wonder they’re so chummy together?

Down By The River….Chicki and Me

5 Sep

Just like Margaret, Chicki likes the scenery

I love ducks

A great place to swim

Sharks live here

Here we are, Chicki and me, down by the river.

It’s a beautiful day: the cockatoos are rejoicing, the swallows are swooping, the ducks are swimming (and waddling here and there).  As if from nowhere, a  lone stilt suddenly appears.

Green after rain,  shrubs and trees are blossoming. Clear water laps onto the yellow sands: the muddy depths are undisturbed. Little fish swarm near the surface.

Along the promenade, a small stream of walkers: many accompanied by their four-legged friends: passes by. Here and there, visitors pause to rest, and take in the view.

Don’t we  live in a wonderful part of this incredible world?
