THIS IS COMPETITION NUMBER 4

    Description: This is one of my 2 Jack Russels, Spike. He and his chum Boogie try and turn  my garden into a bomb site by digging for moles.

They don't seem to realise that anything in there has long gone by the time they have spent 30 minutes chucking soil everywhere.

    After they have finished they sit in the conservatory waiting for the mud to dry, before racing into the house and leaving it on the carpet! :roll:

Sorry, my server kinda frowns on direct linking of images so I can only post a link to a page that shows it ( if that's not ok, feel free to remove the link ) ....


... so, on with my entry .....

it's not "exactly" a pet bee, but I can pretend it was if that allows me to enter? .... and it did stay still for ages ... and I may have accidently watered it at some point .... *angelic look*

Title : Beeutiful

Description : I actually thought it was dead it stayed still so long! .... didn't half run a mile when it woke up :tongue2:

The simple rules have confused me :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  or at least number 2 has:

"It can be your pet or someone elses, on an allotment or a home garden - just so long as it's a pet (even Babe who has a pet carrot). "

Does this mean they NEED to be outside, or just that they can be?

If they need to be, dare I point out that Rob's kitty (although very cute!) is indoors - unless he's hoping we'll be confused by the floral upholstery?! Or is it an outdoor sofa?!?! Not that I'm trying to get the opposition qualified at all (I don't need to - my kitty will win by miles!   :D )

Organic...so far!
