Black & White Sunday: What the Ellie??

This is Ellie carrying around an empty water bowl. It’s empty because SHE has emptied it! She knocks it over until all the water comes out and then carries it in circles around the garden. She’s like our thermometer, as soon as there’s the first hint of summer this is her favourite activity.
We’ve tried getting heavier, bigger and harder bowls but nothing phases her! It even makes Millie curious, or annoyed the water has gone (yeah probably that!)… but a girls’ gotta do, what a girls’ gotta do!

Does your dog/cat/pig/rhino have any strange habits that you just can’t explain?… come on, Poor Ellie can’t be the only one!

THIS IS A BLOG HOP! Black and White Sunday is lovingly hosted by Sugar and Nola … Thank You! ❤

  1. Sounds like a good way to keep cool, Ellie! Charley likes laying in damp grass, on stone (especially granite), and walking into a nearby store with a cool tile floor 🙂

  2. Hehehe! Ellie you are a silly girl! Oskar the Samoyed used to bring “his” water toys over to the pool and drop them in, then bark non-stop until someone got in and fished them out so he could drop them in all over again 🙂 Anne digs up worms and rolls on them….. I don’t know, I have always had silly kids!
    Marty’s Mom

    • Haha Marty’s Mum! Well at least it’s not just me!… the rolling on dug up worms sounds just looovely! Ahem. Thanks for sharing with me, I guess there are worse things she could be doing 😀
      Hugs, Carrie (Myfie, Ellie and Millie) x

    • oh well… she definitely does. They all do and tell us when they want some fresh. But even when it first goes down, as soon as you turn your back she’s upended the bowl and is doing a runner with it! 😀
      Hugs, Carrie and pups x

  3. I just love that “what the Ellie” look that Millie is giving her. 🙂 For the longest time after our terrier mix Lexi died, Harper Lee would not drink from the inside water bowl, which had been next to Lexi’s food bowl. She would only drink from the outside bowl. Then a couple of weeks ago, she walked over to the inside bowl and started drinking. I guess after 18 months Harper Lee decided that Lexi isn’t coming back so it’s safe to approach her territory. Odd!

    • Haha… she really is doing that, just stared after her all bemused!
      Aww it’s things like that that really make you wonder what is going on in their little heads isn’t it? I can’t even think of a theory for that one Sweet, sweet, little odd balls we have!
      Hugs, Carrie and Pups x

  4. ROFWL!!! Ellie is adorable Carrie!
    Nylablue loves to ‘paw feed’ herself her tuna-tuna & also her kibble. Her kibble is in a bowl on coffeetable with her water cup & saucer. She gets on coffeetable & pulls kibble out a piece at a time to select the piece she wants. So every day I find kibble peices on the coffeetable….it is very funny I can tell you.
    Your friends, sherri-Ellen & Nylablue too ❤ ❤

    • Thanks you both, ladies!
      Haha… that’s also so sweet! I do love to see cats paw feeding themselves it’s something very special to them isn’t it? And rightly so she’s a choosy girl!
      Hugs, Carrie and Pups x

  6. LOL Carrie so you have seen ‘paw feeding’ before?? None of my other cats have ever done this so I am fascinated with Nylablue’s activities…
    Nylablue is definitely a ‘choosy girl’ 😉
