Camera Critters #91, Pet Pride Control those ears!


Gus: Look, Jenna, I can keep up with you now. Please may I carry the ball for a bit?
Jenna: You need to control your ears first. You don't look like a proper retriever with them flying around like that.


Gus: Is this better?
Jenna: H'mm, a little - but you still look more like a bird than a Labrador.


Gus: Any improvement?
Jenna: Getting there.

Gus: Now can I have the ball? Please?
Jenna: When you've got full control of your ears all the time, you can retrieve with me - and Tia and Foxy when they come to play.
Gus: (mumbling) Foxy doesn't retrieve much any way, not unless it's biscuits . . .


Jenna: (gently chiding) Now that's not nice, Gus dear.
Gus: Sorry, Jenna - didn't mean to be unkind 'coz I like Foxy.
Jenna: So do we all. Time for home and supper now, I think.

Thank you to the hard-working creators and hosts of these memes which we all enjoy so much. To see more Camera Critters or Pet Prideful photos please click on the titles.

  3. I love the ears, one of the best bits of a dog, and humans too.

    Thanks for these wonderful and heartwarming photos and their captions. Nothing beats anthropomorphizing, though we do know our animals well.

    I can certainly speak for our dog. He'd love to have a companion with whom to compete like Gus and Jenna.

  5. Elisabeth - human ears (and noses) carry on growing throughout our lives, or is that an urban myth? I don't think dogs' noses do . . . :-)

  6. I love how Molly's ears flap when she runs and plays ... especially with other labs! She's more willing to share HER ball with others ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. storyteller - Jenna shares with the other adult Labs; she's just waiting for Gus to grow up a bit (I hope . . . )

  8. Dianne, Janie - I have to confess that the ears on all our dogs fly out when they gallop - and I love it! Inside out ears are a feature of puppies, too.
