Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. – Unknown
I’d be the last one to try to deny the fact that I might be a little crazy! Case in point: Almost every year before Memorial Day and/or the 4th of July, I try to get Luke to carry a flag around so I can get some photos for social media or a blog post. I have – or had – a collection of those inexpensive flags you can use for decorating – small flags on a stick.
Giving a dog who likes to chew things a flag on a stick to carry around is not a good idea, and yet I keep doing it year after year – with, you guessed it – the same results!
But hey, they made for some perfect photos for this month’s Pet Photo Fails blog hop, and just before the 4th of July.
We do usually end up with a couple of keepers anyway, I was able to share a couple of the shots on social media around Memorial Day, and may even have one more decent one for the 4th.
The good news – for me – in all this? That was the last of those flags, he has now chewed every stick. Now I don’t have to pretend to myself over the next year that I’m going to train Luke to “hold” things, at least not things on a stick. We can stick to our flag bandanas and have Luke sit looking handsome, and call that good. 🙂
Oh, and just so you know? Luke did respect the flag itself – he never tried to chew on that!
