So a few days ago Sadie wouldn’t stop barking in our bedroom, which has a window that overlooks our next door neighbor’s house. When I looked out to investigate, I could see someone from the cable company working on a ladder directly across from our window. I let Sadie watch the excitement from the window until the workman had finished. Later that afternoon I took Sadie outside to do her business and we had a surprise waiting for us on our lawn – a neon orange traffic cone, presumably left there by the cable man. After barking at this strange item, then sniffing it from a distance, Sadie decided it was safe enough to approach the cone. Once she had the brightly colored object under her control, Sadie requested I take a few selfies so she could show off her new toy to everyone.
The theme this week in the Pet Photography Challenge Facebook group is thirsty. Sadie was being stubborn during our photo session and refused to drink while the camera was pointed at her. The only way I could get her interested enough in drinking water was to interrupt Sadie playing with her squeaky ball. I placed her ball near her water dish to try to convince her to drink while I took photos. Instead of drinking, Sadie grabbed the ball and put it into her water dish. She thought it was a great new game, drinking water around the ball and then trying to grab the ball back out of the water.
