My Master’s Feet
Why does he stand up there?
My Master’s feet so tempting
I want a bite & nibble
But I can’t get up those stairs
Why does he just stand there?
For surely he must know my plight
If I try to climb this holey metal
I might just take flight
Why does he not come help me?
Is this some kind of test?
It really does look scary
Infinity and beyond!
If I would just open my eyes wide
And make a small little whimper
Click my nails against the metal
He might just not let me linger!
We went along the River Thames the other day and discovered a small bit of London ‘beach’. I use the term loosely.
My eldest son took him down the metal steps which were open, the flat bits consisting of grooved slats of metal, even for me I found them a little daunting.
However, I thought on the way up he would have no problem.
Poor little Teddy!
Most of us went up, I stayed down and took in the scene.
Teddy rested his paws on the bottom step, my eldest went up, woohoo he moved with vigour to follow and went straight ‘through’ the open space of the step, ie under the one above, quite obviously being completely dumbfounded by the fact there was this space and ended up on the sand behind.
He turned and looked confused.
He came back around again, it was at this point I could almost hear his brain saying “there’s no way on earth I am trying THAT again”.
We did have a giggle.
Then lifted him up to safety!
Dogs do provide many moments of fun!
What’s the funniest thing your pet’s done or that you have seen an animal do, if you don’t own one?
