Latest Series of 8ight images and this weeks theme…

Dogs  – Six of 8ight

‘Banjo’

I think I could turn and live with animals ,
they are so placid and self-contained
I stand and look at them long and long .
They do not sweat and whine about their condition ,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins ,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God ,
Not one is dissatisfied ,
not one is demented with the mania of owning things ,
Not one kneels to another ,
nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago ,
Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth .

Walt Whitman. ( I couldn’t have put it better myself )

But for arguments sake lets call him ‘Bluey’

Dogs look up to you. Cats look down on you. Give me a Pig. He just looks you in the eye and treats you like an equal.

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. That is the principal difference between a dog and a man”
MARK TWAIN

The Kelpie in today’s opening image was shot on the back of a Ute in Leigh Creek, South Australia. Er? Settle down RCPCA Inspector. Snapped that’s the word I was looking for!
