Daisy

Ok, Zachary, now look at the flowers...

Daisy
Zachary: (sniff sniff sniff)

Good… almost done…

Daisy
Zachary: "Trade?"

Yes, Honey Pup.

You earned your Cookies.

Next!

Daisy
Henry: "What's my line?"

No lines today, Henry.

You just need to hold still while I take the pictures.


Daisy
Henry: "Oh."

Nice… now look up...

Daisy
Henry: "Ho Hum. Wanting Cookies in my tum."

Perhaps a little more enthusiasm?

"Patience is the companion of wisdom."

-- Saint Augustine

The boys know that if they are patient, and do what I ask with the Modest little Daisies, they will be handsomely rewarded.

Theatrical

Shakespearean Actor
Zachary: "To be, or not to be: that is the question."

Very nice, Zachary.

Now let Henry have his turn.

Shakespearean Actor
Zachary: "Et tu, Henry?"

Really, Zachary?

There are plenty of Cookies to go around.

No reason to be greedy.

Shakespearean Actor
Henry: "Can one desire too much of a good thing?"

Yes, you can. You'll get Cookie Belly.

Now look up at the Cookie ramekin and give me a nice smile.

Shakespearean Actor
Henry: "Tempt not a desperate dog."

The boys, looking rather Theatrical today, with their red cloak giving a A Pop of Color.

Two of my favorite props made an appearance today - the plumed hat and the skull.


Shakespearean Actor
Zachary: "Good Night, Good Night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow."

Chinese Checkers

Chinese Checkers
Henry: "Momma, come play with us!"
Zachary: "Come lose to me is more like it."

I would sweeties, but I think you're missing too many pieces.


Chinese Checkers
(silence)


Chinese Checkers
Zachary: "Make more?"


Dog Blog Post #1485


Trivia: According to Wikipedia, the game is neither a variation of checkers nor did it originate in China.

It was invented in 1892 as a German simplification of the American game Halma.

The center of the board, that is. Probably more visible on the box than the game set itself.

Daily Dog Challenge 993. "Not In July"

Pretty sure the boys haven't played Chinese Checkers yet this month :)

Editor's Note


I had a shot of both boys with their heads on their paws, but they just looked so sad I couldn't bring myself to upload it.

The "happy" shot of both smiling didn't turn out.

Therefore, you'll just have to use your imagination to decide how today's short story ends.

(For the record, they are missing one each for Yellow and Black, and two for Green - although I tried to obscure the fact by leaving the center holes of each triangle empty plus the far edge for green.)
