Humanity

Owners of bulldogs always say that their dogs have true humanity in their personality
This evening is a case in point.
I looked up from my paperwork around nine
and carefully watched Winnie sitting comfortably in her armchair  gazing into the middle distance 
She was obviously thinking about something important

  1. Scotch eggs, she was thinking of Scotch eggs... Oh wait, that was you.
    Miss Winnie was solving the world's problems.

    I love Trelawnyd" she begs.

  15. With her soulful eyes a glow,
    Her belly wobbling too and fro,
    "Even though I didn't win first prize,
    I'm still the star of the flower show".

  17. Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
    Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
    While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
    As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
    `'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
    Only this, and nothing more.'

    1. It was Winnie ! She was pondering on the best way to get to you - without having to resort to SatNav !

  18. Can't top any of those comments! They're wonderful. Perhaps she was having a "trump" moment. Miss Winnie is a beautiful girl. X

  24. Love the arm up on the chair arm rest . . .

  25. WINNIE'S THOUGHT BUBBLE "You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory. Victory at all costs—Victory in spite of all terror—Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."

  26. she looks like winston churchill.

  27. God Bless dogs. What would we do without them?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love this photo!

  29. That darling dog...I just love the way she sits like a human!

    Jo in Auckland, NZ

  30. Possibly she's considering whether she should run for Mayor in the next election, or whether it would eat up too much of the time she'd rather spend cozying up to tradesmen ...

    That is such a wonderful photo :)

  31. "If the prof gets one more breakfast in bed I'm going on strike!"

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love that pic. And then I read the comments and love them too!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Are you sure there wasn't a whiff of roasting chicken in the air?

    ReplyDelete
  34. "Cycling her mind," as my dad would have said...

    ReplyDelete
  35. My daughter's staffy Barney looks like that sometimes, but it only means he is going to fart. Staffies are not a bright as bulldogs, well Barney definitely isn't bright.

    ReplyDelete
  36. She looks like she is smelling her own fart ....and rating it

    ReplyDelete
  37. What a wonderful picture.x

    ReplyDelete
  38. If only she could talk! But thank goodness she can't, for then it would be just BORING.

    ReplyDelete
  39. She was thinking how much more of your attention she would get if you weren't hugely involved with the flower show. Then she thought ' How could I help? I know they could have a Best home made dog biscuits section, and of course, I would judge it!'

    She's such a deep thinker!

    ReplyDelete
  40. She's obviously spotted you and the Prof sitting like this and thought I'll give it a go and see if it makes me look as clever and thoughtful 😊

    ReplyDelete
  41. Lovely pic & great comments ( I too thought they are tipsy ! ) Have you got a clock on the wall ? I think Winnie is hoping it's not bedtime yet x

    ReplyDelete
  42. There's only one thing on Winnie's mind ......
    'Whatever happened to the slippers of sex ' ?!!!!!! XXXX

    ReplyDelete
  43. I reckon she's thinking "Stop watching me, just come here and ADORE me". x

  46. I believe that animals, dogs and cats, and smaller children have a portal into worlds we
    cannot see or comprehend or appreciate. They try to tell us about them, but we either choose not to believe or we don't know how to listen to them.

    ReplyDelete
  47. She is a very thoughtful girl ..

    I saw this today and had to donate. I cannot imagine the pain for that poor pup

  51. No, she's just wondering when her favourite dog food is due.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would love a cuddle with Winnie.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Do not kid yourself John - she was in deep reverie, thinking about how darn lucky she is.
