Thick As Mince

How do you occupy a slightly thick but lovable dog for an entire afternoon?
Well, you introduce him to the home of a slightly disabled female rabbit called Mary
And you leave him to it
William stood like this for over two hours
And still had a goo-goo smile on his face when I eventually took  him inside


There are some compensations for being thick
You can be so easily pleased

  3. Was Mary pleased to have a visitor? Or do you think William was waiting to catch and eat her?

  5. awwwwwwwwww, I love William and Mary.
    I often find my older Scotty Dr. Watson sitting in the yard and looking through the fence at Cotton Tail Rabbit.
    They are about ten feet apart and they just sit there looking at each other all very zen like. Usually the rabbit gets up and hops away and Watson gets up after a few minutes and walks away too.
    Or the crazy thehamish will start barking and running around like the goofball he is and everyone leaves.

    cheers, parsnip

  8. We have a college in the U.S. called William and Mary. I once worked with someone who went to school there. She was a royal bitch. We used to take The Hurricane's dog to PetSmart so she could watch the gerbils. It made her incredibly happy. The dog, not The Hurricane.

    Love,
    Janie

  13. Looks like your William is on the same IQ level as Prince William who can easily spend two hours standing over wee George's cot.

    1. I don't think William the prince has infanticide on his mind though.....Mary looks like doggy William would like her in that saucepan.

  15. Oh my God, the sauce-pan cracked me up. He does want her for dinner. Ahhhhhhhh!

  25. Maybe they were communicating telepathically and plotting how Mary can break free!

  27. I'm with William on this.. happy in our thickness. We smile our way through the day, happy with life's little pleasures, even if by the end, we've forgotten what we were so jolly pleased with. Beats brains and so called intelligence any ole day: you just look around the world and see what a bugger's muddle, so called clever dicks have got us into.

  28. People of apparently limited intelligence can be very loyal and loving.
    It can get on your nerves after a while though......

      William is probably one of the nicest tempered dogs I have ever owned
      He is gentle, polite, sweet natured and dim
      He is. a delight

  29. Thank you, John. I deduce from your statement that, since I am easily pleased, I qualify as 'thick'. Did I mention 'the feel good factor' of your blog in my reply to your last post?

  30. my grandmother (god bless her) would say that people with simple pleasures lead simple lives and don't want for anything and are therefor happier than those of us who struggle for excitement and complexity...

    ReplyDelete
  31. and I took from this that's it's OK to be stoopid...

  32. Isn't William the one who stood in the bathtub for over an hour, waiting for you to come and dry him off?
    I love thick.

  35. I would never dare call Emma the Beautiful Calico Queen "thick" - she might bite me. But she has been known to sit staring at me for an hour or so, hoping I would get her telepathic message that she wants treats....

  36. Whenever my Jethro (male Havanese, white, not quite nine years old when he left us) would see a bunny rabbit or a kitty cat cross the yard, he would just stare for a few minutes -- who are you? why are you here? where are you going? -- then turn and go on about his business.

    That photo is priceless.

  38. Simple pleasures, simple mind. Apparently that's an old saying, which seems to ring true.
