Chilling out

Chilling out, originally uploaded by Mika_I.

Aah, a rare treat – a picture of my sister’s elder (of two) flatcoated retriever, Jedi, resting. Most of the time he is constantly on the move, wagging his tail. Sort of like a duracell bunny. The boy, even at 8 years old, has more energy than most cubs. It took a one-hour walk outside (in freezing temperatures, I might add) to tire him out enough to get this pose!

It is funny how pets have personalities. Jedi does like people, but he is fiercely loyal – when my sister is out, he keeps an constant eye on the door for when she gets back. He can be a little bit clumsy, but always means well. And he’s very easy to play with. When he carries something in his jaws, all you need to do is to stretch your hand out towards him and he’ll turn away. It’s like a game for him. But one he’s very happy to play.

What a character.
