Just point your trunk to where you threw my ball… Charming pictures of orphaned elephant playing catch with a labrador.

Everybody should have a friend. And it doesn’t matter how different they are.
My dog, who looks very much like this one, says she would like me to get her an elephant. Barring the elephant, a tennis ball and (non-frozen) river would prove that I didn’t hate her. (At least I think that’s what she snuffled in my ear as I read this in bed).

Why I’m glad I use a leash on the dog at night
Dog: *bouncing up and down*
Me: Calm down.
Dog: *bouncing* /human, do you not see?! There is an intruder!!/
Me: Ah, is there a little bunny in the back yard?
Dog: /foolish human/ *bouncing*
Large skunk: *saunters slowly across the yard behind the house*
Me: *apparently channeling someone from the US south* Aww, Hellll no!
Moral: Trust your dog. When your dog, who’s a good mouser, insists that there’s a a mouse in your shoe, believe her.
I shook my shoe upside down several times and nothing fell out, but she said there was a mouse, right there, in the shoe. So as one last gesture to her to prove that she was wrong, I squeezed the toe of the shoe and of course the mouse ran up to the heel. Because my dog was right.
I might have jumped, just a little, because I was startled. My (foolish) instinct was to shake the mouse out of the shoe. Luckily for the mouse, it landed in an otherwise empty grocery bag next to the recycling. I scooped the bag up and took it out to the garden before the dog figured out what was going on.
After telling my dog how good she was and giving her a special treat for finding the mouse, I went back out to retrieve the grocery bag. The mouse hadn’t left yet. So I took some pictures of it, made it leave the bag and took some more pictures.
