Tammy and I went sniffing in the garden. It really is beautiful outside...although the weaver bird is having some domestic problems! The poor bird built a whole lot of nests (just above where Tammy & I are standing), just to have them ALL stripped by his fussy wife!....WOMEN!!!
He's called a SCORPION spider...and REALLY...quite beautiful!
But what is he REALLY?
Is he a scorpion, or a spider???
Actually, he is a SPIDER!...who pretends to be a scorpion!
He holds his front legs in such a way that it looks like the pinchers of a scorpion.
I find this really facinating! Why does he do that? Can't he just be who he is meant to be?
It's kinda similar to us dogs. Some of us are involved in all sorts of activities, but are we allowed to just be dogs? You know, parents of human childen sometimes say...
CHILDREN DON'T HAVE TIME TO BE CHILDREN ANY MORE!
Is this the case too with some of us dogs?
Anyway, while Mom gets on with her cleaning stuff, I will just have a snooze and ponder that thought!
With all my training over the years,
have I been allowed to simply be a dog?
Lots of licks
