A Good Match – Weekly Photo Challenge

I see this as the perfect match, MY DOG’S EARS. I often watch her, even when she is at rest, with her ears twitching on her head like the Radar on R2-D2’s lid.

OK, it’s not a great picture for a photo challenge, but as you can imagine, she doesn’t stay still for long! In fact, I would go as far as to say, she knows how a camera works, and moves as the the shutter clicks.

Going back to her ears, they never seem to relax, and are permanently ON. One ear will hear a noise, and fix dead still on her head, while the other will scan around under complete control trying to verify any threat. This happens constantly.

Thinking about it now, I’ve always had dogs with this type of ear, and very wolf-like heads, “Oh, Grandmother, what big ears you have” I hear you cry, but it’s someimes good to have the wolf on your side.

Though, remember ladies,  there are various kinds of wolves. There are also those who are charming, quiet, polite, unassuming, complacent, and sweet, who pursue young women at home and in the streets. And unfortunately, it is these gentle wolves [that get voted for] who are the most dangerous ones of all.

    • Her name is Lily. When I put her picture on, I hadn’t planned on including the others, so she didn’t need to be named. She is a big scary dog, but she is also scared of everything, and that doesn’t match her looks.
      Is ‘thinking outside the box’ another way of saying ‘you’ve gone off topic’?

      • No, not at all. I just meant it as in I would never have thought to take a pic of my dogs ears. 🐶
        My last dog was like that. 80lbs and a scared of everything – balloons, thunder, flagpoles, washing machine, signposts amongst others.
