Getting The Run Around!

The best thing about having a bath is –

Little Monkey is very fast for her size.

So much so, that I was hard pressed to photograph her in focus.

Even though I trained the camera on her and tried to match her speed as she moved, often she was just too fast for me and ran out of the frame!

She has a long body and is very supple and has always enjoyed haring round the garden, especially with a captive audience.

Little Monkey is eleven and a half years old – going on two! A dog her size and breed (ahem) is expected to live to about thirteen.

Somehow I think she’ll exceed that.

 

post script: To “Get the Runaround” means to be given unclear, misleading, incomplete, or evasive information, especially in response to a question or request.

Or, literally, as here, to get a run around – the garden!

      Yes, she had a ball! πŸ™‚
      And no, LM has Never been in the pool. None of my dogs has ever gone in voluntarily – I think something to do with their kennels being hosed down in the rescue centre? LM Still runs every time I pick up the hosepipe! (It’s been 10 years!)
      Then again, I’ve never had a pure Labrador – Try keeping them Out of the pool! πŸ˜€

      Thank you πŸ™‚ I just say she’s having a mad moment – and she doesn’t need much of an excuse! πŸ™‚
      I had one other dog who did this – Jack, who also looked like LM. The other dogs have just watched them in bemusement! πŸ˜€
