This is how Henry drinks. I wonder if it will work for me.
Our winner is Germaine S! Congrats! I will get you the packet of beautiful wildflower seeds this week.
It was a hoot reading the entries, thanks to everyone who entered. Below are a couple more pictures of Desert Boy slurping from puddles. I think he really was trying to be like Henry. Or maybe he's just a little strange. Just a little.
I don't think he could have gotten closer if he wanted to. I'm just glad it was a semi-warm day and he could dry out quickly.
One of Desert Boy's chores (yep, have to start them early!) is to feed Henry. Often he doesn't quite get the dog food to Henry's bowl. This isn't much of a surprise, because Desert Boy has a hidden agenda for enjoying his chore.
He 'helps' Henry by picking up the dog food to try to get it back into the container. And it just so happens that he slips a piece of dog food into his mouth in between photos.
