We all need someone to watch over us!

They look like wood ducks, Christine ! – do they have brown heads ? I’ve never seen a group of wood ducks like that – only the one one or two. Lucky youse ! 🙂
Yeah, they are wood ducks, M-R. Most mornings since it got really wet, there have been up to a dozen of them strutting around. They are eating stuff on both sides of the road, but I haven’t seen a squashed one yet. The other day we had three groups of birds out front – galahs, cockatoos and wood ducks. They were all too far apart to get them in the one photo from the lounge window.
How thoughtless of them! Tsk !

My little furbaby would be dragging me all over the place to get to those ducks… He has no self-control. Oh. Did I mention: He’s part Beagle. 🙂
Angela, I don’t think I’ve caught on your furbaby is part Beagle. They are a hunting dog, right? A while ago now, when Vika saw these ducks for the first time, she took off and the knot in the extension decided to unravel. She dashed out on to the side gravel road but the ducks flew away, and she lost interest. She never woke up she was free and I was able to stand on the blue lead! I put about twenty knots in the extension now so it doesn’t unravel again. 😀
You are correct: Beagles are hunting dogs – bred specifically for that purpose (his other ‘part’ is Boxer). Good idea about knotting the extension! I might have to ‘borrow’ the idea. 😀
Yes, your dog looks fairly restrained, considering… Lovely to see the ducks!
Vika is a very smart dog, leans quickly. She knows they will fly away, so she no longer bothers to think of chasing, just looks with great interest. 😀
Don’t think she would appreciate a mouthful of feathers.
No fear of that, Sue. Though she didn’t mind mouthfuls of lizard!
So uhm, why did the ducks cross the road again…? 😉
My pooch and your pooch would have a grand time chasing them, I think! 🙂
You’re pooch looks very cute. I love the picture. 🙂
