The Strawberry-Filled Banana Donut

Anouska is on pain pills this week to see if it helps her move better. The vet suggested syringing them into her mouth mixed with mushy food, but my attempts at that failed dramatically

Now, she loves fruit, especially bananas and strawberries. So for the last few days I have been pushing the pills into a small piece of banana and medicating her by stealth - she thinks she's just getting extra treats. It was all working out well until today when I tried to mix things up and use strawberry - for some reason, "not banana" was worth some thumping and grumping.

After several unsuccessful attempts to persuade her it was something tasty, I resorted to digging the now half-dissolved tablet out of the strawberry, scooping out a piece of the banana and slotting the strawberry/medicine mix in. So she ended up with something resembling a banana donut with strawberry centre. It worked well, she scoffed it immediately, but I'm dreading tomorrow - I fully expect her to reject her morning medicated banana until I put the strawberry filling in it again.

Sound of Snacks

"Anouska, shush, stop nomming grass for a second... Did you hear the treat bag?!"

"Sooooooo...not under the chairs. Well is there a place in the house I CAN take a nap without you trying to photograph it?"

Back To The 50s

I never really got on with really shallow depth of field when I first got my 50mm lens, but I've been having so much fun with it recently at 85mm I though I'd give it another go.

The main difference between the two is you need to stand closer for a similarly framed shot with the 50mm (obviously). I get the impression MrB has some feedback he wishes to share with me over that aspect.

The awful hot weather is back, it's so frustrating, the bunnies hate it. Once again, Anouska has melted into the carpet.
