Diamond waits

Tuesday 7th June 2022, 5.40pm (day 3,939)

Diamond waits, 7/6/22

Is waiting a thing that dogs would do if we hadn’t trained them to do it over millennia? Predators learn to wait, I guess. But not for their human master to come back from the bar.

Reggie relaxes

Tuesday 3rd May 2022, 4.35pm (day 3,904)

Reggie relaxes, 3/5/22

A very limited day in terms of photographic opportunities. It was some cherry blossom again, or pub dog Reggie being mildly exploited. But he doesn’t mind this kind of thing, it’s his job.

Not Mathilda

Thursday 28th April 2022, 12.50pm (day 3,899)

Not Mathilda, 28/4/22

Mathilda the cat has appeared on this blog more often than any other animal but definitely moved away, her last appearance (of six) being on 3/3/20. This puss is a tortoiseshell as she was, and appeared today in the same location — but it is not her. I got a fairly friendly reaction however, so perhaps s/he is putting in a bid for repeated appearances, just as Mathilda did.

This is a photowhack — the only picture I took today.

“Take me with you”

Saturday 26th February 2022, 12.10pm (day 3,838)

Dog at Scalderskew, 26/2/22

“Please. You’ve gotta get me out of here. I didn’t ask to make my life here, a day’s journey from the nearest grooming salon.”

I might think the same if, like this critter, I was living at Scalderskew in the Lake District — I do not know of a more isolated dwelling in the country. If you’re interested, the most prominent peak in the background is Seatallan.

Under surveillance

Under surveillance, 11/12/21

“I don’t care what my lot are doing. You’re eating. They’re not. I’m going to stare at you for a while.”

Not-at-all-cheap cat shot

Friday 9th July 2021, 3.30pm (day 3,606)

Expensive cat shot, 9/7/21

I sometimes feature what I would call ‘cheap cat shots’ on here (see this one for instance) but I don’t think this baby would be cheap at all. This is a challenging look, don’t you think? But I’d give it a go.

Taking a walk

Thursday 8th July 2021, 4.05pm (day 3,605)

Walking the duck, 8/7/21

Just an ordinary Thursday on Main Street, Haworth. Is there still an obligation to follow a pet like this around with a pooper-scooper?

Day of rest

Sunday 27th June 2021, 3.55pm (day 3,594)

Dozing dog, 27/6/21

Could not decide between two photos which both epitomised this uneventful and almost totally energy-free day. But the other one was some knitting project of C’s (we age, we age….) that would have taken too much explanation. The flaked-out dog — and its tether to an unseen owner — these are clearer illustrations.

The watcher

Sunday 16th May 2021, 1.15pm (day 3,552)

Watching cat, 16/5/21

Not a day that will live long in the annals of photographic history, at least, not for me. But this cat was cute (despite the reflections) and in fact, this is the first cat to appear on the blog since 3rd March 2020 — which is pretty poor form for this self-declared ‘cat person’. Lots of dogs, lots of birds, even a pig or three, but no cats for a while. Let’s rectify this.

Saluki

Thursday 13th May 2021, 5.30pm (day 3,549)

Saluki, 13/5/21

I don’t mind dogs on the whole but I’m never going to make myself responsible for one, and there are plenty of people who seem to think I should find their pets as endearing as they do. But these salukis — this is one of a matched pair — were OK, attractive animals I thought. If I’ve got the breed wrong blame the info I got from the owner.

When I put the tag in, and something else came up under ‘Saluki’, it was — where, when? But now I check I see it was the name of a train in Illinois. After nearly ten years doing this, sometimes things get forgotten.
