ABC Wednesday: "J" is for "Just snoozing?"

Kind of a weak "J" this week... This photo was taken not long ago in Vranje, a city not far from the Bulgarian border about 3-4 hours' drive from Belgrade. (5+ hours if you take the intercity bus as I had...never again.) The sign says "Beware of the dog," but this guy hardly raised his eyelids when I snapped the shutter. However, maybe he is interested in tasting fingers through the gate if given a chance, since he's chained, rather than running loose. It's a dog's life.

Bibi,
That's a great one, not a stretch at all. Why bother snarling when you can't get any meat! HA

Hope each day gets a little easier my friend.

I've got a cat who is an expert at "just snoozing"...   Looks like that dog is pretty good at it also...

Hey
Old Tom Wigley thought exactly what I was thinking.
So I guess you could say about me "That you can't teach an old dog, new tricks."

Or maybe his owners just don't understand him. Maybe he's chained because they think he's a vicious dog, when really, he just needs love. I sure hope they unchain him occasionally and take him for a romp in the park. Dogs that sit like this day and night all their lives make me sad. I sure hope he's not one of them.

Love the choice! Just snoozing sounds just great to me, Bibi. It's something we old dogs do well. :)

I'm sure he is just having a snooze before he is let off that chain and runs his owners ragged. Oh to be a dog!

I always believe those 'beware of the dog' signs.

He does look kind of fierce, I think.
