Animal Critters

-
Browsing through the Island Rambles on Vancouver Island´s blog I´ve found another cute meme - Camera Critters. As I wrote to the Island Rambles (come on, there´re never enough chances to quote yourself:-) : "There are so many wonderful memes, and so little time".
To this one I will not contribute so often because I am not very good at taking pictures of animals. They cannot stand still. Moments they are in some fun or fine position are fleeting. They are like kids.

My first Camera Critter is my sister´s dog. Golden spaniel called Elizabeth. I took this picture being on holiday this July. We stayed in a very nice cottage with very big, green and full-of-wonderful-trees yard (posts about that are here and here).
Exploring the yard with Smallone we found some snails. Smallone was excited when they hid to their shells, we told them the rhyme ("little snail, little snail, put your horns out, I will give you a penny to buy a cheese" - it Czech it is a very nice children rhyme, in English..well, it could be worse:-), and they put their horns out. We repeated that for hundred times. It was fun.





This snail is wet not because of rain, but because Smallone watered him. She thought it would grow bigger...:-)

Elizabeth is a beauty! And those snails .. well, I am not sure I would want them any bigger! They look large enough already! There goes half the garden!

If you would like to visit my Camera Critters, they are here and here.

Hello !

Does The dog eat the snails ?

Namnet said...

Thank you everyone for nice comments:-)

To webradio: We didn´t allow her to do so:-) She wanted to try (she tries everything), but I don´t think she would like them:-)

I LOVE snails :)

Namnet said...

Namnet said...

To Tezz: Yes, snails are cute:-)

My jsme vždycky říkali: dám ti
krejcar na tvarůžky:-)
Schválně jsem si kvůli tomu pustila znovu Jak krtek ke kalhotkám přišel a moc to nepomohlo. Tam říká: "šnečku, šnečku, vystrč růžky, dám ti... a nic ti nedám!"
Takže se to asi nedozvíme....
