Let sleeping dogs lie!


I found a link to a Blog challenge, Michelle’s Weekly Pet challenge on a blog I follow A DAY IN THE LIFE.

The challenge is to include a photo of your pet , so here is a favourite one of mine. This is Sheldon. He is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel x Cocker Spaniel .IMG_2020Its a favourite because he wrapped himself up this way . We used the old suitcase as his bed. He was about 4 months old. I was the only one home and was madly trying to write school reports. He didn’t like being alone and kept whining so I would play with him. After playing with him and his tug a what toy (in photo) feeling guilty I left him and went back to writing. After a while his whining stopped but  the unnerving quiet bothered me. I sneaked out to look at him hoping he was asleep. He was! He had got my son’s -shirt from the dirty clothes pile in bathroom and had dragged it to his bed (dragged it over himself) along with his toy. Unfortunately photographing him woke him up. That is when I learnt the true meaning of “Let sleeping dogs Lie!”

A mum to 2 grown up children who always make me proud, a wife and a full time school teacher. I love eating great food but am not motivated to cook. Love traveling around this great country in which I live. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)

  1. What a great story and memory to have. I love it!

  2. How clever! Tiggy always waited (and expected!) to be wrapped up by someone. That’s the difference between cats and dogs I guess! 🙂

  3. He looks like such a sweetie, and so cute all cuddled up like that. Thank you for the lovely entry 🙂

  4. Aw, so cute! Love your header photo.

    • The header photo is from Hamilton Island. They have a rotunda on the peak of a hill where you can watch the magic of the sunrise or sunset (depending on the time of day of course lol) . That was taken at sunset . I always feel peaceful at that spot.

  5. Hi again, Travelling Macs. I really enjoyed this short blog entry. It made me laugh. Our dog is constantly doing things to make me laugh as well, they are truly a blessing to us.

  6. He’s so cute! 🙂
    What a lovely picture, made me smile.
    Lots of love
