FOWC with Fandango — Instinct

Is it training or instinct that Maggie will sense the presence of a pheasant or ptarmigan in the undergrowth and not rest until it is flushed out and flying away.
Was it instinct or curiosity that had Barney, her predecessor, ‘herd’ a New Forest pony to us, then sit down beside it as it munched on the grass as if to ask ‘What do I do now?’

Our instinct is to worry about those we love or care about when all is not well.

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.

    Instinct is a funny thing. Especially in animals. And birds too.
