I discovered these irises hiding in some grass alongside the road on my walk. this evening I went for a 3 mile walk with Ole Riley Dog, my surrogate pet. I think he’s about 10 years old in human years and he’s still cute and fuzzy like a pup.
He loves to walk with me but was quite sly this evening, as if he was really too tired to walk but could not pass up the opportunity. Part of my course is walking to the end of a road and turning around. That stinker saw the direction I was heading, stopped in the road and waited for me to walk to the end of the road and turn around. He did this on 3 occasions acting tired and yet, when I told him it was time to go home, he got all sad with pouting eyes. No kidding-this dog really does pout and look sad when things don’t go his way. Talk about a dog with character! 🙂 He always makes my walk interesting.
As I came up over a hilltop I saw the tall fescue grass and tree tops bathing in the golden glow of the sunset,
and then enjoyed the sun as it dropped down below the horizon.
So what do you think…can dogs intentionally pout and look sad?
