THE APPRENTICE  ~ more pics on blog....  Lol.

....I know I'm supposed to do something with this watering can, but that doesn't look quite right...

...Truffle, my Smooth Fox Terrier puppy, working out how to water pretty pansies ~ kindly sent to us by GoY member, Janette.

It would be good to report...
"no flowers were harmed in the making of this photo"
..... but Truffle did eat one of the pansy buds.... sorry, Janette. :o)

Beautiful rich colour TTand Janette and great photo of truffles :)made me smile

11 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Scotkat.
Janette sent some lovely pansies.
Glad you are smiling :o)

11 Apr, 2009

 

Lovely photo! Hope Truffle doesn't enjoy eating too many of those pansy buds!

11 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Bernieh ~
Truffle seems to have a taste for salads.. Lol.

11 Apr, 2009

 

At least, unlike our Lucky, he isn't trying to eat it! Isn't he growing fast. too? :-)

11 Apr, 2009

 

If you read above, David, I had to confess to Janette about Truffle eating one pansy bud. Lol.

Yes, he's all legs like Bambi right now. :o)

11 Apr, 2009

 

Awww....bless him. He's getting big isn't he? Lovely pansies TT and Janette. No wonder Truffle had to have a taste. They do look good enough to eat!!

11 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Gilli ~
Truffle is getting bigger, which means he can reach higher, higher, higher, which means everything has to be moved up, up, up, out of reach...... Lol.

11 Apr, 2009

 

Cute photo TT :)

11 Apr, 2009

 

Truffle is a real Star! you can see he's trying to work out what you want him to do and it doesnt take him long judging by the picture on your Blog, he's a real smart doggie, love him and the pansies too!

11 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Tasteyg :o)

Hello PP ~
Truffle is quick to learn. It's different from teaching a Sheltie, and I like the challenge of a Terrier...
...You know what I mean, having darling Polly. Lol.

11 Apr, 2009

 

I love that "what is this" puppy look TT, Truffle is Gorgeous..

11 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Dee ~
Truffle also uses that " What is this ? " look on a lot of items he is NOT allowed to have. Lol. :o)

11 Apr, 2009

 

He...he....hasn't he grown TT! He has such long legs now......soon be chasing those nosey neighbours away from the fence...LOL !

11 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Janey ~
I'm not surprised Truffle has grown because he's had a HUGE appetite right from the outset. He would be a chubby boy if he didn't run it all off playing games with Conker.. Lol.
... he could spray the neighbours with his water can. Lol.

11 Apr, 2009

 

He's getting very big TT, he looks lovely. :-)

11 Apr, 2009

 

Great photo - I love the enquiring look he is giving the watering can! He has certainly got long legs.

11 Apr, 2009

 

Thank you, Dawn and Gee :o)
Truffle is still rather wobbly on those "Bambi" legs .Lol.

11 Apr, 2009

 

Cute photo of Truffle TT:-)

12 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Panther.
He is learning fast :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

It looks like Truffle is saying .... and what am i suppose to do with that ...

12 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Daff ~
Yes, Truffle does look puzzled. Lol.
You can see on my blog that he worked it out ! :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

Lovely Truffle!!!
:o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Aleyna ~
Truffle says Happy Easter to you :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

Thank you Truffle,
My wishes of a Happy Easter to you and Conker....
maybe some chocolate pansies would be good for easter huh???
:o))))

12 Apr, 2009

 

Oooooo, no chocolate for dogs..
The theobromine in chocolate is a killer to dogs :o(

Truffle will get boiled egg today. Lol.

Truffle has such long legs for a terrier, is this usual for a fox terrier?
My brother had a brown long legged long tailed jack russell, in fact it did not look much like a j.r.

12 Apr, 2009

 

Smooth Fox Terriers have longer legs than Jack Russell Terriers.
Smooths are closely related to Wire Fox Terriers which are of a similar size and shape to the Smooths. The Wires don't look so long in the leg because they have the thick wiry coat on their legs, tummy and moustache.

Truffle is still growing, and he will deepen in chest as he matures, so won't look so 'leggy'.

Jack Russell Terriers are not recognised by the Kennel Club, and you do see a variety of colours, height, head-shape.

There is also the Parson Russell Terrier, which has been recognised by the Kennel Club in recent years. These are longer in the leg than a Jack Russell.

Oh, Ams, ask me anything about Terriers and you get a l-o-n-g answer. LOL.

Happy Easter ! :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

oh dear Truffle you are in a predicament no doubt Conker will come to the rescue..Pansy buds are not good for you.Iam amazed you didn't get the hiccups..be good,love to you mum Conker and Crocus..wuffs Percy

12 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Percy,
Pleased to say I'm now getting the idea of this watering can challenge.
See on my blog. I got it right in the end !

Happy Easter to you and Deida,
love from Truffle,
TT, C & C xxx

12 Apr, 2009

 

I wonder what pansy flavour tastes like. lol.
If truffle enjoyed it you may soon have a pansyless garden TT :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Hywel ~
Some people add pansy petals to salads...
Not sure I would want to do that !
Happy Easter to you. xxx

12 Apr, 2009

 

I didn't know you could eat them. Can you ask Truffle what they tasted like ? lol
Happy Easter TT :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

Do you think Truffle's opinion on pansy-tasting would be reliable ?
After all, he also likes to snack on JR's tassels... Lol :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

Happy easter Terratoonie. Tref (rosygarden).

12 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Tref :
Easter Greetings to you :o)

12 Apr, 2009

 

lol. He's experimenting.
I hope you don't have anything poisonous.

12 Apr, 2009

 

Truffle will be chewing the Ceanothus next...
It is just budding and spreading now...
... I might trim it so he can't reach it....
I've just looked on the internet and it says that Ceanothus is not poisonous, but all parts can be made into a SOAP ..

Something at last to clean Truffle's muddy paws. Lol.

12 Apr, 2009

 

What a cute apprentice you have there TT ...

12 Apr, 2009

 

Janette ~
Truffle says sorry for eating one of your pansy buds. Lol.

12 Apr, 2009

 

truffle looks so cute here TT, anyway he has conker to do the watering, why have a dog and bark yourself he thinks :)

13 Apr, 2009

 

Lol Sanbaz ~
But Conker thinks ~
I can delegate these simpler duties to Truffle, and then I can concentrate on the more complicated gardening tasks....

13 Apr, 2009

 

ha ha ha , or maybe have a rest...

13 Apr, 2009

 

What a little charmer. Looks like he's trying to move the watering can by some mysterious power by staring at it.

13 Apr, 2009

 

Were you being serious when you said that people add pansy petals to their salads ? I've made tasty dandelion salads before now - but pansies ??!! I suppose it would a jest of colour and we could ask Truffle what they taste like!!

Incidentally, do animals have an innate ability to know which plants and flowers are poisonous or harmful?

14 Apr, 2009

 

I'm sure Truffle will redeem himself in the garden by the end of summer.
Great pic. The pansies are lovely and Truffle is too cute.

14 Apr, 2009

 

Sorry for the delay in getting back to everyone. My neighbours lowered their fencing, which has resulted in my having to do lots of extra carpentry work... ongoing... :o(

Hello Linda ~ I reckon you're right.... Truffle seems to get his own way with lots of things by just having a cute expression on his face. Lol.

Hi Terry60 ~ Yes, pansy petals are used in salads ! I looked it up on Google. :o)

NN ~ Truffle knows how to fetch the watering can now, so there is hope. Lol.

Truffles is growing fast .. look at those long legs !
I love the way he is looking at that can , did he work it out in the end ?
The pansys are a beautiful dark colour like velvet :o) I,m wondering if Truffle would like chocolate cosmos in season ..LOL ...

16 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Amy ~
Yes, Truffle is getting more like Bambi every minute. Lol.
Lovely velvet-like pansies Janette sent to me ~
they've been in flower for months... :o)
Truffle did work out how to use his watering can. You can see some more pics. of him on my blog with the same title THE APPRENTICE. Lol.

16 Apr, 2009

16 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks Eileen :o)
I hope your slow internet connections get sorted.
Must be soooooooo frustrating !

16 Apr, 2009

 

Sorry late to this...still trying to catch up ourselves.Amazing how much you miss after 4 days off line.Good pic.

16 Apr, 2009

 

Not a problem.
I've been trying to catch up today ~
Got totally disorganised in the process ~
Don't know what I've seen and what I've not...
I'll get there eventually. Lol.

16 Apr, 2009

 

Know the feeling ! Lol

Wow,lovely photo of Truffles and the Pansies TT,It was worth having to scroll right down to the bottom of the page to write this message Lol...

Sorry I haven't been on much this week but this Tendonitis problem has been getting me down a bit and I am having to do things more slowly and not type too many words lol..

17 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Tina2 ~
Sorry your tendonitis is giving you pain again :o(
You did well to scroll down. Lol.
I've missed some days on GoY due to the stress of my fencing problems.
I'm starting a blog about the fencing saga today !

17 Apr, 2009

 

I think you should ask Tt for another of those cans Truffle, then you could dance as you water. Yes.... you guessed it........ Th e Can Can!

17 Apr, 2009

 

Lol. Paul.
Conker would go one step further ....
a rain dance...
and then there would be no need to water... :o)

17 Apr, 2009

 

lol :P

17 Apr, 2009

 

:o)

17 Apr, 2009

 

Truffle is a very smart breed of dog and should be watering all your plants in no time...Oops! I just read some of the other comments and it seems he already has...

20 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Skippy ~
Yes, Truffle is getting the idea of the watering can now...
I hope all your pets are happy and healthy too. :o)
