Day 7's Assignment: "Fly"

Day 7's Assignment:  "Fly"

Flyin' Ferd Man!

When I saw today's inspiration word was "fly", I knew I had to feature Ferdinand Lerch in my photo once again.  Not to be a one trick pony, but Ferdy is known for FLYING off the deck when we let him out in the mornings.  

A little bit of background on our sweet pups will help you understand a little better... Ralph and Ferdy are springer spaniels, and as their names suggest, they are supposed to "spring" birds up for hunters.  Now, we are not hunters by any means, so any chance Ferdy gets (like in the early mornings) to spring up birds (or squirrels, or frogs, or anything), he takes it!

A typical morning involves Ferdy waking up around five and crying at the foot of the bed until one of us wakes up.  Once he sees momma or daddy pop and eye open, he then runs to the door and cries there until we finally give in and meet him in the kitchen.  As we unlock the door, he wiggles and squirms, whining the entire time.  The second that door is cracked open... well the picture explains it all!

By the way... You may be wondering if Ralphie is the same way, and the answer is NO.  He will stay in bed and sleep all day.  We call him our lazy bones.

As you can now see, we have one of the world's only "flying" dogs!  



That is too funny! Adorable pups too!
