Curly Competition

22 Jan

Curly dry grassI thought I was safe this time of year.

No wildflowers are blooming, so my person isn’t getting her camera out every few minutes and making me wait while she takes pictures.

So I couldn’t understand why she pulled her camera out.

I mean, it’s the middle of winter – well, I think it is. The calendar says it is.

So what is there to take pictures of?

Except me, of course.

And I wasn’t doing anything spectacular at the time.

Nothing to take pictures of anyway.

And then my person gets up close and personal – with a weed.

I guess she’s pretty desperate.

She wants to take pictures so bad that she’s even willing to take pictures of weeds.

Maybe she should get another hobby.

I think I ought to help her along.

No, not with another hobby.

I don’t want her doing anything else that would take her attention from me.

No, I’m going to help her along by doing away with her subject matter.

      Patrecia, at least my person won’t take any more pictures of it.

    Perfect solution, B. All the way around.

    Love and licks.

      I agree Cupcake. By the way, my person found out where the geese hang out here but she wouldn’t take me. She says it’s too far away. I’m so bummed. I really wanted to try goose poop since you recommend it so highly.

    Yes, this is the solution! And you can reach such a high level of perfection in it:

      Thanks for sharing Kolytyi. That dog really knows what to do. I wonder if the wildflowers around here taste good.

    That’s a cool-looking weed, though!

      That weed might have been safe from me if it wasn’t so cool looking – no, never mind. I eat plain weeds all the time too.

    You do have to admit that weed is pretty cool

      Lily, that weed tasted good too.

    I like the way you always think outside the box!

      Thanks Dalton. I guess that’s what puts me way ahead of my person sometimes.

    That weed is cute!!! You always have it around this time of year?

      Kevin, I haven’t really noticed that curly weed before – there aren’t many of them on my trails.

    I am with you on that one Bongo… my human finds the weirdest things to take photos of, so I do my best to either get in the shot so it’s better, or plow it over… eat it… lay down on it… ~Cooper from

      Cooper, a dog’s got to do what a dog’s got to do. Otherwise all we’d be doing is waiting around while our people play with those camera things.

      Thanks Little Binky. Anything to keep my person from stopping constantly to take pictures.

    I can see that you have to help your person with direction and focus Bongo. It’s a good thing she has you around or who knows what she’d be taking pictures of next!

      Lola, it’s an ongoing job – keeping my person focused on the right things.

    Oh, No!!!!! Don’t , Bongo! I don’t think they’d do you any good. I also fear they might grow inside you and then you really won’t be able to escape them!!!

      Marina, I guess I’d better stop eating them. They might tickle my innards if they grew inside me.
