Two Tails

Some times two tails, and two noses are better than one.
The smell of the freshly landed langoustines was just too much to resist.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home with my husband, my son and a collection of cats and dogs. I am forever snapping shots of things which catch my eye. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist, and run the Maggies Highlands Cancer Centre, in Inverness, Scotland.

    Intense interest in whatever it is they are seeing and sniffing!
    Fun shot!

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Seonaid … I can imagine those tails whisking wildly side to side with delight !

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Gorgeous capture, Seonaid! โค

  4. Hahaha. This such a cute image, Seonaid. ๐Ÿ™‚

    They don’t get to eat them though?

    How charming! Sweet and succulent seafood makes besties out of even the most unlikely siblings. My elderly cat and bouncing fox terrier learned to bond through food and their shared affinity in begging for treats.

    Nothing brings people (and creatures!) together like a good meal. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • That’s so true Sharon, sharing a meal will bring out the best in most of us, especially if it’s delicious seafood. I love the idea of your cat and your terrier bonding over food ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m chuckling at this shot of your “extras,” as I see you snuck up behind them for a change. You caught them unawares as they were checking out the sea-life and they might get to scrounge up. What a delightful picture.

    • You know that’s a great point Gwynn, I did sneak up behind them for once……they were so engrossed in the delightful seafood smells I was a non event at that moment!
      I thought they looked so cute, and that lovely silky light on the ocean behind….

  9. By ‘langoustines,’ do you mean Atlantic Lobster? I assume this is a sea-side-shot? And, would they like to eat these … or just play with them? D

    • No, not lobsters although they catch these here too….but Scottish Langoustines, Scottish Prawns or Norwegian Lobster…..all the same thing. Most get exported to France and Spain, but fresh from the creel they are sweet and juicy!
      Some of the fishers remove the heads from smaller ones for packing and the dogs will happily hoover these scraps up!

      • Oh … ok … I was thinking the following (from the same site you provided) … http://www.seafoodscotland.org/en/responsible-sourcing/top-species/lobster.html.

        Marine … right? I ask, because your Langoustine look to me what I know as freshwater ‘crayfish’ here in the States. D

      • They are longer in the body and in the claws than crayfish….and get much bigger. By the end of summer they can be lobster sized, and yes an ocean shot from the old stone pier in Plockton.
        Our fresh water crayfish are currently endangered, under attack from a larger fiercer invader from Europe!

      • Wow … I’ve never run up against these critters … and I claim to be a zoologist! Yikes. I guess it’s true that you learn something each, and every, day. D

      • Well all I know is that they taste delicious! Hot or cold…..
        They call them Plockton prawns on the seafood menus up here….landed as they are on the Plockton piers, and I make a point of feasting on them as they are at their freshest and cheapest…..even down in Edinburgh the price rises dramatically….by the time they reach London and Paris they are pricey delicacies ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Colline says:

    They look like good friends ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Well they can be but Maisie the black and white one is getting on a bit now at 13, and she sometimes gets grumpy with energetic 2 year old ๐Ÿ™‚
      Food is a great bonder though…..as long as there’s plenty to go around!

  11. a great shot of happy behinds with curious noses implied

  12. Sweet! My two cats are like that as well. Always together, following adventures and smells.

  13. Rachael Charmley says:

    The power of the doggy nose ! Lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It’s a powerful gift indeed…..so funny to see them catch a sniff of something in a passing breeze, and all the noses move together following it. Like watching the ball at Wimbledon ๐Ÿ™‚
