what to do after lunch?

what to do after lunch?
It is hot, dry and hazy here. A slight breeze runs through the side of the home, which is also my little neglected "jungle". That is where they like to nap after lunch. In the drain, little Lambie and Julian, Bear-bear on the bricks, Tagap on front right, Burglar in front of the pot. The other five are somewhere else at home. Yes.. ten dogs I have. The other five are.. Tubby, Bubbie, Girl-girl, Snipe and Captain.

walk on the river

The might Rajang River, Tua Pek Kong wharf, Sibu.
Yes, clogged with debris so dense that you can walk on it all the way to the stern of the cargo boat. A long time ago, the water looked like black tea and teeming with various species of fish and prawns. I used to fish here! Nowadays, this river looks like tea with milk. I cannot imagine what I will catch these days. The mighty Rajang River. Photographed at the Tua Pek Kong wharf, Sibu, Sarawak.
The Rajang River is the longest river in Malaysia, located in Northwest Borneo. Read more here:-

do you want to play or not?

do you want to play or not?
do you want to play or not?

Captain wants to play, but Julian wants to sleep. They are brothers from Bubbie's (Bubba) first litter (5, but 3 survived.. Captain, Julian and Snipe.) Their dad Cookie died shortly after the pups were born, succumbed to illness. Bubbie too, was warded for 10 days and night with a 30% chance of survival (parvovirus). She fought and survived. Strong girl! We visited her every night at the ward.

Question.. how did Captain get his foxy orange, and Julian looks like a mop? (Julian is just like his dad, Cookie. I still call him Cookie sometimes.)
