Sunday bones

 After two hours at the river this morning,
and the dreaded baths,
we had bones--nice, juicy beef knuckles.

Bella found a secluded spot by the tomatoes.
 I, Daisy, found a  good spot on the grass.

SHE read outside, because lurking in the bushes,
is the notorious bone snatcher.

 Roxy hides her own bone and sneaks around behind bushes
  to pounce on an unwary sibling...
 if she can get away with it.
What are you lookin' at me for?
But we're wise to her tricks.


  1. A secluded spot by the tomatoes sounds just fine for gnawing into a beef knuckle.

  2. You are so foxy Roxy. Enjoy dem bones. Have a serene Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. AAAaaaa... the old "hide yours and then snatch someone elses trick!!" Good one Roxy - IF you can get away with it!

  5. Woof! Woof! Funny silly Roxy hiding. Happy SUNDAY. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  6. You only have it half right, Daisy. Be protective about your bone and after you finish it, go get Roxy's. She needs to be on the receiving end a few times.

  7. Oh Roxy, we all know that trick! At our house, it is even less fair since the blind girls are chewing happily and all of a sudden what they are chewing on is gone! Like SHE does, I do keep watch, just in case.

  8. Why is it you all ready look guilty Roxy, Heeheehee!

  29. ah Roxy, you are a four legged one after my own heart - it may not be very sportsmanlike but I would do the same!!!

  31. What cute photos showing Roxy's very funny habit! It sounds like a great day.

  32. Surely this isn't true. Okay, we all know that it is true. Roxy, stop stealing bones!

  33. Roxy and Pumpkin are cut from the same cloth! Pumpkin sometimes even "buries" an antler in the house -- on the upstairs landing, in a corner under a cabinet.

  34. Haha! I've never had a proper bone before. Are they good? The weather looks glorious where you are, those sun puddles looked brilliant!

  35. Oh Roxy that is just not right stealing from your sisters.
    Thanks for being a friend
