This is Sparta, trying to drink the paddling pool dry by gobbling up the water as it’s poured in!!!
WoW !!! a photo of me at home! Not that you can see my home. But rest assured this is me, drinking from a water bowl in the Gazebo in my front garden.
Its nearly Christmas …. so I’m going to try and get Mama to get some Christmassy photos of me and Fabi, being thirsty in a Christmassy spirit. Keep your paws crossed!
Oh My! This is Me! I’m only about 8 months old here. But hey ….. I’m still handsome, don’t you think. This photo is taken on the River Derwent as it flows through the grounds of Chatsworth House, a regular place we visit and full of history.
Oh No! Is those adorable babies again. It gets every Scottie Mom feeling broody! This is a photo of my older Sister “Kelpie” when she had her first and only litter of beautiful scottie pups. There were 2 brindles as you can see and 2 black pups. The daddy of these pups was a scottie owned by Gail Dixon of the Chatterdale kennel. One of these pups went to live with Mama’s good friend Maggie Crisfield Walters – she called her baby “Poppy”, and those of you who’ve been following us for years will have seen plenty of posts of us meeting up with our niece “Poppy”. Again, this one could also be placed in the “Flash Back Friday”Cagtegory ….. but as it’s my bloggie, I’m choosing to keep it in the Thirsty Thursday section. I hope you enjoy ….
Well now …. for those of you of years past, you will know that Gus alway had a problem getting across the local stream’s stepping stone. So on this occasion as you can see, rather than him getting thoroughly wet, he was carried over. Not something that Gus (God Rest His Soul) would have overly worried about – it was a means to an end – and if he needed carrying … then so be it. He just shrugged it off and carried on as he he’d skipped across those pesky stones! God Love him ….. we still do!
Well …. this was some years back and could possibly be a contender in our “Flash Back Friday” series of photos. But as it does contain an element of liquid it really does sit more comfortably within the “Thirsty Thursday” category.
One bad and frightening thing from this photo that you don’t see, is that some parts of the beach are so “mushy” that your feet sink up to your ankles, or in the case of Mama, she sank much further! She was not happy. She was also sooooo very worried that we’d sink ourselves.
So if you are ever on the beach at Formby, looking at the architecture of Anthony Gormley figures, do be very careful, the sand is like quicksand!
