Dancing with Donkeys

It has been one slow week my friends! So slow that Mom has not taken any pictures of me for a couple of days....that's when ya know it's bad. :) Apparently, she has this evaluation coming up at work where her principal comes to watch her teach. This makes her very nervous even though once it happens she wonders why she was nervous in the first place. Needless to say she has been spending lots of time at school. So, these pictures were taken last week. Up above is me and Ozzie (the Golden Retriever) dancing at the park. But we weren't dancing alone.....

NOPE, do you see who's dancing with us?

That's right, those silly donkeys decided to dance too! Mom thought it was very funny because we were all four dancing at the same time.
Before the happy dancing though there was a bit of a scary situation I must tell you about. We were over saying hello to the donkeys when Ozzie decides to go under the fence for a more intimate greeting. Of course, the donkeys ran away and Ozzie came back. However, a bit later he decided to go in for another try and this time the donkeys did not run away. The next thing I know is I am looking up to see Ozzie running away from the donkey and the donkey had its front legs reared up and was hot on Ozzie's trail! Talk about scary....Ozzie's back could have been broken! Luckily, he made a beeline for the fence and escaped unscathed! I hope he learned his lesson and doesn't try this again but probably not. He's a friendly boy in that way! :) Unfortunately, it all happened too fast for Mom to get a picture plus she was too worried about Ozzie to think of it. :)

So, the moral of the story is: Stay away from donkeys! Especially ones that dance...they are dangerous!

Scary with your friend Ozzie... but hopefully he learned a valuable lesson... or not. :) Boys will always be boys, I guess.

Woo! That's scary about the donkey almost hurting your friend! I've made a note: stay away from donkeys.
My question is, what song was playing that made all of you get up and dance?

Nala, I love to dance too! You guys are a good height to be dancing! :) What music was on?? BOL

That is a pretty scary story about Ozzie! I am glad he is OK and obviously you had enough common sense to stay away from those scary donkeys!

Those donkeys are not nice, are they? We have mini-donkeys about a quarter mile from our house and we stop by their fence to check them out when we walk in nice weather. But Mom never lets us get too close.

Tell your Mom that our Mom said to just teach something she knows well and enjoys talking about and she will do just fine.

Tell your mom good luck with her evaluation. Maybe you should go so you can charm the principal.
