Qannik Thinks Big

A stick? Why think small?

    I would have broken that log up into a bazillion shavings and traded each piece for a treat! I do that will big sticks from the yard and keep a convenient stash of twigs next to the dog door for when I want a little trade treat.

    You can have that gnawed down to a toothpick in no time.

  4. Kari on October 4, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    Those are some lofty ambitions!

    I like the way you think Qannik! You’ll have that whittled down to toothpick size in no time, is my bet!

    So very ambitious, Qannik!

    We had a dog who used a wheelchair for the last year or so of her life, and she used to carry a piece of firewood to the house at the end of every walk (while in a wheelchair). She was simply amazing.

    That would give everyone good excercise in a rousing game of fetch. It is plain to see that you are getting ready for winter, helping them lay in firewood for the cold days ahead.

A Whiff of Wildlife

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
