Freya descends from her ivory tower 10 minutes before Joey’s dinner is due…
Yay! Yay! Yay!
Freya’s here!
That means dinner will be served immediately!
Yay! Yay! Yay!
Uh, Freya, why is the kitchen door still closed?
Oh no! She’s got that black box thing that flashes in my eyes. Why? It’s dinner time!!!!

What do you mean it’s not time for dinner?
But when you float downstairs at this time of day it’s always dinner time.
It’s not fair.
You don’t love me any more…
Freya!
I’m HUNGRY!
Ow! Stop the lightning from flashing in my eyes!
I’m starting to feel really pissed off now.

Will you STOP taking photographs of me!
I’m NOT a film star.
And you’re not paparazzi.
Last time I checked, Freya, you were claiming to be an Author!
No! I won’t stand still!
I need sustenance – now!

I’m so hungry, I could eat a hamster!
Though they’re so scrawny, one wouldn’t be enough.
Maybe two or three, or maybe even four might stave off the hunger pangs.
I’m as hungry as a wolf!
And I’ve heard that wolves eat humans…
Although Freya’s a bit skinny, she’s starting to look quite appetising!
She is, after all, human, for all her prancing around with her pointy ears.
Hmmmm!

I’m bored.
I want my dinner.
I will faint if I don’t get fed soon.
Where are you going, Freya?
Is that the kitchen door opening?

Yay! Yay! Yay!
Freya’s in the kitchen!
Dinner! Dinner! Dinner!
Of course I’d never eat you, Freya!
You’re too wonderful for words!
Yay! Yay! Yay!
Biscuity-meaty smell! Heaven!
Excuse me, busy now. Have to eat…

Dragonscale Portraits – Photograph 20170228

28 February, 2017

I’m trying out something a bit different today, just to see if people like it or not.
I don’t really do an awful lot of photography at the moment, for one reason or another but I wanted to share this photograph with you. I took it a month or so ago when we had snow and Joey, the greyhound I babysit for 2-3 days a week, felt the cold!
Greyhounds are very sensitive to the cold, so, instead of letting him lie on his quilt on his bed, I draped the quilt over him. He loved it!
I’ve shared another photo taken at this time with my Patreon supporters. And there’s another one that appeared in my guest post over at Sue Vincent’s blog in January. Joey also appears briefly in my video Insides.
