I know, tedious, isn’t it?Â Even on ABC Wednesday, I have to set you these little puzzles!Â So. Where is the ‘O‘ in this picture?Â Don’t worry, I won’t make you wait until tomorrow to find out!Â I’ll tell you right now – the ‘O‘ is for ostrich!
Yes, that plaited thing young Sid is eating is an Ostrich Twister!Â See?
These rather expensive dog chews are made of pure ostrich sinew for maximum flossing effect on the old teeth, and Sid LOVES them!Â Â And, of course, if it keeps him off the operating table for a dental cleaning under general anaesthetic, then it’s worth every penny.Â Â It makes it easier on the olfactory senses when his mouth is clean, too!
Now if there’s one thing Sid loves more than eating, it’s Going Out.Â So this morning we did just that (as we do every day, of course), and we took a drive to a lovely little park nearby, called Cuckoo Hollow.Â Well, most of it’s lovely. As you see here -
The litter bins were full to overflowing!Â I suppose we should be pleased that people are using them, should we not?
When Sid isn’t walking or eating (or sleeping, of course!) he likes to play.Â Now Sid has a quite outrageous number of toys.Â Here are a few of them:
As you can see, they include a fluffy orange pumpkin, and …. what is that tangle of green and black?
It’s an octopus!
Both the octopus and the pumpkin were originally given to Renie and Jack, but Sid loves playing with them so much that poor Mr Octopus is feeling a little off-colour.Â Yes, Sid has bitten one of his legs right off, and another is hanging by a thread!Â No wonder if he looks a trifle offended.
Oh well.Â Time perhaps for another outing?Â Here’s Sid, with OH on the other end of the leash.
And we’re off. See you later!
