Silly Every Day

By LynneJoyce  
Posted on Sunday 13 examples of Ansel's every day encounters with sticks that he finds in the woods and two of him rolling in the dead leaves, just for fun. He doesn't like small sticks as you can see, much preferring to drag around ones like these. I call them Leg Thwackers and I have the bruises to justify the name.

He gets immense joy out of finding and dragging these monsters around so who am I to spoil his fun? He can only be dragged away from these prizes if he finds another dog to play chasing games with. In doing both he gives me great joy too.

As ever the exif applies only to the first shot. Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these images.

Wonderful character and personality (and yes all animals have that if you allow them to demonstrate).

I don't know who gets the most fun out of your outings, you or Ansel! 😁 He certainly looks to be enjoying himself. Another great collection, Lynne 👍

Now that is a dog with great ambition. Good you find some play that lets him pretend to be working.
