Cutest camera critter in Russia!

I have really had bad luck today with this post. First, it posted to the wrong date, and Paula (Molokai Girl) told me how to move it. Then, somehow, I deleted it, I guess, because it is gone.
Bear with me, please. I'm trying. Very trying, as the old joke says.


Isn't this little fella cute? I know I interrupted him just to pet him and take his picture, and he was very patient for a little while, but then he continued on his way. He definitely knew where he was going and why, so I'm sure he's a resident of the island of Kizhi, there in Lake Onega in northern Russia.

Thanks, Misty! Sorry for any inconvenience.






This duck was swimming near the Viking Surkov, and other passengers were making remarks about the color of the water. I could tell, however, that although the water is brown in color, it isn't necessarily dirty water, because I could clearly see the legs of birds—ducks and gulls—swimming in it. There's her right leg, and there's her left leg. A very pretty lady of the lake.

Well, here it is, I can read every word of it and see the pictures too.

I love the little dog. Somehow I think of Russian dogs as great big hulking creatures. I wonder why?

Look so snuggly, very cute indeed Kay.

My critters, please come by when you get a chance, have a blessed Sunday!

Kay said...

Adorable doggy. I wonder if that's a mallard. Sort of looks like one.

I know what you mean about computer glitches. They drive me nuts.

Fran said...

So cute, I bet you wanted to scoop him up in to your handbag and bring him home x

Yes, he is a cute doggie! Great photos. I hope you have a happy Sunday!

I do so love coming here and seeing Lindy. Your whole blog filled with animals is always a pleasure to see. Please do not worry about "Bloggers Block" ... it just seems a state that makes sense, you know as in "a bit of rest."

Hi Kay. That little doggie looks like he grew his coat ready for the Russian winter.

Karine said...

He is adorable! Sorry it took me a while to get to your blog this week, I've been very tired and very busy!

Ebie said...

Hahaha! Showing off its acrobatic skills!

That doggy would make anybody want to bend down and rub his fur. With his overgrown coat covering his eyes, it's a good thing he knows his way well. Cute duck shot too.

Thanks for providing us with such an array of images of Russia (even critters!), it's so interesting!
God bless you!

There's a distinct difference between a lost dog and a dog that knows where it's going. Lost dogs look so desperate and those not lost look purposeful.
I like the lady of the lake:-)

Linnea said...

Very cute pup...he's got his own little walkway around the lake!

That was very nice and patient of little dog to allow you to take his photo. What a cutie!

Aw forget all your posting problems! The critters are adorable. (I always assume when I have problems it is because of Typepad -- when just about everybody else uses Blogger. Guess we all run into troubles at one time or another
