Tuesday Photo Challenge – Contact

We used to love watching the Crufts agility Fly Ball competition on TV, but had to stop as our dog, Barney, wanted to join in.
Bless him, he would sit up and take notice of all the commotion and excitement, then realise there was a ball to be chased when it bounced out of the trap and the competing dog missed it. Barney charged the telly, dashing behind it in search of the ball. Luckily it was on a table rather than free-standing, so nothing went flying, except his tail wagging like crazy even though his efforts to find the ball proved fruitless.

The picture is a snap shot I’d taken that we had put on canvas when he died in 2005.
It was on our wardrobe door on the boat, and is now hanging in the lounge over one of the settees.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    You must miss him!

    • He was beautiful and we weren’t ready to lose him. We got Maggie six days later, so have had a dog for the past 24 years. She’s made her own way into our hearts.
