Sparrow's Random Big Five with Dogs. KNP Apr. '13

Unread postby Sparrow » Mon Apr 29, 2013 1:31 pm

I was sitting here :think: that wouldn`t be nice to have All us Mites post some of our best Big Five photies along with some Doggies and captions if you wish and see what we come up with.

Hope you will participate.

Just a few to get the ball rolling.

And its no laughing matter.

Good detective work Trrp :thumbs_up:

I spent an amazing time watching the herd play in the water.

Two headed monster.

Image

I think he went this way :hmz:

Image

I said, I've joined the latest wild cat strike.

Image

cat, did you say cat?

Image

that needs urgent attention. Definitely need to set up a commission of inquiry here.

Image

I've got a strange feeling that I am being spied on.

Image

Wild cat strike, what wild cat strike? This is my best position in life, slow and chilled or hot on your tail.
