This morning I was going through the blogs I follow, reading new posts, and I came across a post on Suffolk Scribblings – My top 10 blogging tips on building an audience. Very helpful post. So I commented on the helpfulness of the post and mentioned my kids had advised me if I wanted to increase traffic to my blog I should post a photo of “cute ass puppies”. Dylan (of Suffolk Scribblings) replied saying my children knew what they were talking about. I responded by saying I was going off to find my camera.
I spent the next half-hour chasing my Great Dane – Mikey around the garden. Just as I was about to give up, because he kept turning his backside to me, in defiance, there was a great flurry of wings, and splashing and dogs barking.
A duck had landed in our pool! And I just happened to have the camera. How grand is that? Not only do I have a photo of a cute ass/big ass puppy but I also have a photo of the said puppy trying to catch the duck in the pool.
Here is another photo of Mikey – staring into the great unknown. Yes, he is big – he likes to stickybeak into the next door neighbor’s yard, by putting his front paws on the top of the 6 foot fence and peering over.

How often does that happen. Someone asked me if it was photo-shopped – told them I wasn’t that clever.
Lol! Me either!!
Beautiful dog! I love your kids’ advice for increasing traffic. 😀
Great timing 🙂
The ducks usually land in our pool this time of year, on their way back …from wherever, but I have never had a camera in my hand.
The right place and the right time I suppose 🙂
