Much to Telfer's surprise and disgust Zippy took a
short-cut underneath him whilst a photo of Telfer was being taken.
"If you will block
the way past ! "
The pair still get on well and the old
cat is definitely the boss. I imagine he has "stung" Telfer once or twice in
the past just to teach him his place because Telfer now moves out of his way if
Zippy approaches too close when he is resting.
A few seconds later
Telfer moved when he received a playful tap on his foot!
On his walks Telfer like most dogs is fascinated
by sticks. He still spends the 1st half of a walk by just pottering along and
enjoying the smells around him with the occasional bark at a squirrel high in a
tree. After about half-way (only HE knows how he knows that) he turns
his attention to FUN. He grabs the nearest stick, or even long grass in
desperation, and runs off with it.
Attacking a large stick
He also loves water and makes a bee-line for
Enjoying a nice cool paddle
Swimming in deep water
His lovely soft bushy coat and tail spread out
wide when he swims giving the impression of a very fat dog, very different to
the skinny one which crawls out a few minutes later ! Telfer loves his
swims and rushes to the water's edge when we get near. However he is so
well-mannered that he will wait with his paw raised in anticipation as he
stares into my face asking for permission before he jumps in.
