It’s like a wrestling match with the coot as the... referee? I don’t know, I’m not a wrestling guy, but hopefully you get the joke.

Darn - that would have been a much better tag line (and I did think that when I took the photo originally).

Those Mallards, always some weird behaviour going on.

Better take a closer look.

COME AND TAKE IT!

Texan bravado infects even the smallest of critters.       

Come and Take It!

 

  At the minor skirmish known as the Battle of Gonzales—the first land battle of the Texas Revolution against Mexico—a small group of Texans successfully resisted the Mexican forces who had orders from Colonel Domingo de Ugartechea to seize their cannon. As a symbol of defiance, the Texans had fashioned a flag containing the phrase "come and take it" along with a black star and an image of the cannon that they had received four years earlier from Mexican officials. This was the same message that was sent to the Mexican government when they told the Texans to return the cannon; lack of compliance with the initial demands led to the failed attempt by the Mexican military to forcefully take back the cannon.

Picky eater.

Not sure what was going on with this gull the other day. Nicely found a snack through a hole in the ice, walked around with it for a while, looked really puzzled for a couple of minutes, then threw it down and eventually flew away leaving it behind. Fresh water so not enough seasoning?

Don't tell me about tongue!

“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.” – Will Rogers

If Lola were an athlete in the NFL she would be a tight end rather than a wide receiver.  She can block, guard, tackle, and catch but with 81 lbs of lean muscle she does not change direction with the facility of a Jack Russel or a Border Collie.  She powers through obstacles.  She is fearless.  In barn hunt competition she is known to move hay bales to get to the prize.  In agility competition she will leap over any barrier with ease and negotiate the the seesaw with aplomb.   Lola is an exemplar of the Bouvier des Flandres breed.  She has no concept of personal space.  Social distancing is beyond her powers of comprehension.  I was snoozing in my recliner when she started licking my ear.  :P   I love my three bouviers.  They are a comfort in these times of stress and isolation.  However, I take exception to certain intrusions of the Canis overfamiliaris species.  So I took up a tennis ball and led her out to the backyard with the following result.  ;D

Born to Run!
