Found this photo this morning before I set off for work. Usually I browse around for a quick look at the news, Google News does it for me at that time in the morning. Most days I switch off my PC and drive with a sense of “ho-hum, war here, drugs there, political squabbling in the corner….sigh” but not today!
I had to smile when I saw this photo! And I thought I’d share it with you, dear blog reader, because we all need to smile a bit more. It’s photos like these that make me wonder if those much cherished human elements like love, humour, friendship and fun are experienced by all species.
Each night we put our dogs in the kitchen, they have a tasty Bonio doggy biscuit and a cosy bed each to curl up in. Tilly gets the bigger bed, Ben the smaller one. However, most mornings they are found in the same bed together, all snuggled up! And then when they’re allowed on the sofa – yeah, yeah, dogs on the sofa, very bad, blah, blah – they always seek each other out.
And if we try to take one of them out for a walk without the other…well, put it this way they don’t like it! They spend a lot of time play fighting and winding each other up but I seldom see two dogs so in tune with each other as ours.
All those human traits we take for granted and seem to take ownership of are very much alive and kicking in the animal world, our lovely dogs are a prime example! Cute or what!
