Fur-Bearing Treasures, Or Is It Fur, Bearing Treasures? (Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure)

Standard

Good Morning:

Say hello to a treasure named Porkchop:

Porkchop is a French Bulldog, and like others of the flat-faced, squat-legged dog breeds (English Bulldogs, Pugs, et cetera), Porkchop can accelerate from zero to “Whoa! He’s really fast!” a lot faster than you might think. Porkchop also likes to play a game very popular among domestic canines, called “Let the Silly Human Get Really Close and Then Run Away Really Fast Before the Silly Human Can Attach My Enemy the Leash.”

But as you can see, his babysitter had attached his enemy the leash. For that, she had me to thank.

Here’s Porkchop ignoring that unfortunate young woman after yet another escape.

But then he saw me.

Porkchop decided that I was superbly qualified to shower him with petting and affection. And I am superbly qualified to shower a dog with petting and affection: I’m human, and I have at least one hand. So I gave him a good petting and rubbing, whilst covertly holding him until the babysitter could catch up with us.

But dogs do constitute one of the great treasures of a human’s life. Herewith I present more of them. I cropped most of the shots, but did not apply any filters.
