Java Working on Her Social Skills

Murphy is taking a load off and trying to snooze..

“This is odd,” thinks Java. “Hey! Murphy! Is something wrong with you?”

“Hey! I’m talking to you!”

“This is way too boring. Maybe if I run past Luke with this hunk of paper I can stir up some kind of game.”

“No! Luke! Hey! I’m behind you! You’re going the wrong way!”

“What do I have to do to get your attention?”

“I have secrets I can tell you. I know you never get in the house. Did you know that…”

“Sorry, I didn’t mean to upset you.”

“Oh, Lord, please don’t cry! I get enough of that from the lady of the house.”

  1. What a wonderful series of photos. They’re priceless! I really mean that. You should frame them!

    My K has convinced my friends horse to play tug with her. It was crazy to watch, back when K was a pup, how she’d take the tug toy and try to tease the horse with it. Eventually, the horse took the other end and a small game of tug ensued! Now, the two play with a stick together. So wonderful…

  2. This is so cute! I was laughing and crying! Java reminds me so much of my Bailey!! He always has to be right there in the horses legs, face, whatever, the closer the better!

  3. Mary…This post and the last post are great. Snow, yuck! But Java and the horses are so sweet. And the photos taken near the St. Louis River are spectacular. You picked out a great place to get away from it all.
    Thanks for your visits.

  4. Mary– Java is the key-ootest! Love the pics from the last post too. Sorry I missed the one before until now. Hope today is a little better.

  5. It’s been fun watching this crazy relationship develop between Java and mainly Luke because Luke just pays more attention to other living things while Murphy tends to be off in his own world. When the place does sell, I’ll miss being able to catch these daily moment, which I guess is why I try so hard to capture them now.
