Baby elephant tantrum…

leave a comment »

If you have never seen a baby elephant having a temper tantrum,  you’re in for a rare treat with  this video.   If you have children,  or have spent much time around the toddler versions,  the progression of this tantrum will look quite familiar.

Spud thief…

leave a comment »

This elephant  in West Bengal,  India has discovered a pretty cheap way to grab a good snack,  and the firecrackers the driver of the spud-filled truck set off failed to dissuade the beast.   The fact that the thief was not even distracted by the noise makes me think it has been targeted by them before and knows they are not likely to hurt it.

Let’s play!

leave a comment »

The dog is  enjoying the  play much more than the baby elephant,  but it’s still amusing to watch.   One of the dogs from my childhood would play tag with a wild fox on cool fall mornings,  and they both seemed to take pleasure from the game.   Let’s face it — most dogs love to chase and be chased.

Big Girl likes nothing better on these frosty mornings than to chase me around the back yard,  growling and snarling as if she were going to eat me if she caught me,  but she has her mouth open in a grin and her feathery tail is curled up high and wagging gently so I can be certain it’s all pretend.   Some days she will fetch a ball for me to throw,  but mostly she won’t, preferring the game she has created for me to share.   What a joy a truly happy canine is!
