Dog in a Manger


A Person called Baby Jesus was born Two Thousand and Sixteen Years Ago. 

In a Manger.

I was Born nearly Twelve Years Ago.

In Rescue Kennels.

Person calls me Lazy Boy.


Pickle has a Blue Ball.

Zara has a Blue Ball.

Milly has Two Blue Balls. 




I'm a Sight Hound. 

I can Tell the Difference Between a Ball and a Rabbit. 

I can Tell the Difference between a Ball and a Pigeon. And a CAT.

I'm Not a Lazy Boy when I See a Pigeon.

Anyway, Pickle Says Why are you Pointing That Thing at me?


When are we Going Out? 

Milly Tries to Pick Up All Three Balls. 

Person says Milly is a Dog in the Manger.

Marmite had Mange when she was A Puppy.

Marmite was our Chocolate Labrador. Marmite Died Five Years Ago.

Balls. Lots of Balls.

Person brought home a Bag Of Balls.

LOTS of Balls.

Pickle Digs in the Water with the Balls in it.



Pickle Scatters the Balls All Over the Garden.

Milly Puts the Balls Back into the Water.

Zara is Scared of Water. Zara was Very Brave. Zara Stepped in the Water and got out a Yellow Ball.



There aren't many Balls in the Water anymore.

Pickle brings Balls into the house. Pickle Chews Balls. Pickle Chews Bits off them.





I keep Well Away from the Water. I keep Well Away from the Balls. I try to keep Well Away from Pickle.

Anyway, Milly is In Season.

AGAIN!

Milly is In Autumn this time.

Person is Keeping me Well Away from Milly.

She says Keeping me Well Away from Milly protects my Joints.

(Keeping me Well Away from Pickle would protect my Brain).

I would rather Hump Milly than Play with Balls.


(Zara is hijacking MY photo).

When the Sun Goes Down

Person says to me You Are Getting Old. 

Person doesn't like someone to say You Are Getting Old to her.

I won't play Ball with Person. 

I Lie Around a lot.

Son-Person has come to Live With Us for a while.

I will Play Ball with Son-Person though. He takes me out By Myself. 

I Like being taken out By Myself.


It is HOT.

Why does Little Pickle DIG and Dig and Dig in the Paddling Pool Water?

He's Wet.



Me, I keep away from Water.

Milly Likes a Small Den where it'e Cool. Under Person's Desk.



Pickle and Zara like a Small Den where it's Cool.



Anyway, Person went to a Dog Show and was Kissed by a HUGE Dog called a BoerBoel.

A Boerboel comes from South Africa. It's Hot in South Africa too.



I hope Son-Person will take me into the Field By Myself. 

I hope Son-Person will Play Ball with me again when the Sun Goes Down.

A LEAP Year

A Year? A NEW Year? 

What happened to the OLD Year?


Did the Old Year Run Away?

Did Someone Take the Old Year?

Did Pickle Bury the Old one?

Did Person Forget where she Put It? 

Anyway, a NEW Year is a Much More Interesting Thing.

It is a LEAP Year.

I will be Eleven Soon but I can Still LEAP.


I expect it will mean Even More Leaping from Little Pickle. Oh Dear.

Anyway, A Happy New Leap from ME too.
