AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Not gonna happen. I'm in Arizona and you're in Greyscale Territory...where ever that is!

Ooh, that don't-you-see-what-I-want stare! I've seen that look before. As the old saying goes, dogs have owners, cats have staff.

Our human loves this kind of haughty obnoxious look! :)

Beautiful shot of Shadow, I love that stare and look on Shadow's face. Just what is he thinking?

Shadow is gorgeous! Looks intense! You better get home on time. My cats pace while waiting for me to get home only because it's their supper time.

Stopping by from Pet Pride. Here's a link to my post if you get a chance to come by:

You can bet if we saw this look in your eyes when we were there, we'd be paying attention to you, Shadow! We'd be opening the door for you -- or whatever else you wanted opened!! You do have a commanding presence!! We've been practicing ours!! Have a great week!!
