"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Dogged Resistance

From well-disciplined patience

To potential mayhem.

A passing dog-handler with her charges inadvertently risks canine chaos.

  1. My dog, Jubilee, is very sick now.

    So difficult, I am so attached to her that I feel her every distress.

    I wonder at how much that we cannot control.

    • I truly sympathise. With their love, affection, trust and loyalty, dogs have a very special hold on us.

  2. That one dog seems very focused on ice cream … perhaps he’s been there before!

    • It’s very interesting that you spotted that. Could his focus possibly coincide with anyone else’s…?!
