Thank you, Amy, for last week’s Photo Walk – a fun challenge with walks all over the world, that I unfortunately couldn’t follow as much as I wanted. But I will be back – soon.
Hosting this week is clever Biasini and Ma Leueen – so, I will take the opportunity to show you something of my world – a dog’s world. My name is Milo, and I live with Totti, Ann-Christine and her family in southern Sweden.
In my family we don’t do competitions anymore, but my pal, Totti, used to win many prizes in his youth. He is a Swedish and Danish Champion. In the header, he is the winner of such a competition. I can tell you that, in order to reach a top position, you have to communicate well with your handler (as they call the human running with you in the ring).
A great companion he is anyway, Totti. We both know exactly what the other one wants or wants not. Mostly we want the same thing though…and that could have meant big trouble, if we hadn’t been able to communicate wisely and read the signs. I can only urge all of you to work hard on it – Communication. If you don’t manage that well enough, your life will be much more complicated – sometimes hardly manageable.
Finally, our sincere thanks to Biasini and Ma Leueen, for guest hosting this week’s very interesting challenge. We all look forward to seeing your creative responses. Please remember to link them to their original post here, and to use the Lens-Artists tag to help us find you. We hope you’ll stay tuned next week as I, Ann-Christine/Leya will be the host for our next challenge.
Please be safe and well until next time!

Soooo sweeet!!!! Love seeing these babies!
A wonderful response to the challenge from Milo’s perspective!
♥ He is very communicatve!
Hi Leya, Your beautiful dogs told us a story my dog handler friends would enjoy. Our dog and cats are such good communicators. I recognize their voices and what they are saying even when I can’t see who’s talking. Isn’t that so amazing? Thanks for sharing the story from your life. 🙂 See you next week. 🙂
Yes, that is truly amazing. We need animals and not only humans. To grow our senses and skills in understanding.
I agree 100%, Leya. I’m looking forward to your challenge next week. 🙂
♥ Thank you, Marsha!
This is lovely Ann-Christine. I hope you are doing ok.
Thank you, Su. Beginning to.
I loved reading about Milo and Totti. Beautiful dogs and wonderful photos!
Thank you kindly, Susan!
Wonderful communication in every photo!
Thank you for a lovely comment!
We have two cats in the home, Camila and Alphie. We have learned that certain “meows” mean “Feed me now” and some mean “Play with me now”. Why do cats yell. 🤪
They are very communicative!
wonderful post, Ann-Christine. animals are great communicators. there is lots of love from Emma, Totti and Milo 🙂 🙂
I was delighted to meet you, Milo, with your friends Totti and Emma. My favorite photo the exchange of glances between you and Emma. You make a really good couple!
Thank you- we do!
VERY well said Milo. If the world is going to the dogs (and horses), it will be much better off!
Made my tail wag with glee A-C 🙂
How wonderful to see Milo and Totti are having fun! Milo is a cool communicator. They can read people’s mind. I love this post, AC!
Thank youAmy – dogs can…
A lovely post! When you have two animals living together it’s amazing to watch. Once we had a mutt and a Scottie. Together they spelled trouble. The mutt knew how to open the kitchen cabinets and the Scottie was small enough to get in. I had to put baby locks on the cabinets. Another time, our dog and cockatiel both lost their respective friends. The dog would go to the corner of the cockatiel’s cage and she would come down to him. They would go beak to nose.
Aaahhhh, a wonderful story! And true that it is a gift to see animals living together – how well they work and communicate.
Hi, AC. I was hoping you’d feature Milo and Totti–to be honest! I’m very, very happy that you did. I didn’t know that Totti was a champion. Don’t our animal friends give us so much happiness and unconditional love! I wish human relationships were as uncomplicated!! Take care and thanks for a wonderful post.
Thank you, Patti. We humans have much to learn…from animals as well.
That Totti, he’s quite the communicator! How nice to see him responding to Biasini’s challenge. Clearly he and Emma are the best of friends Ann-Christine 😊. Of course, I’m thinking he and Emma love YOU too. ❤️
♥ Thank you, Tina. Animals are the best for communication – I believe.
Oh, brilliant post, Ann Christine! Milo and Emma communicating nicely in your photos
Hello Milo! Nice to meet you I am Biasini the horse. I see you let your human go into the water first. Such a good idea because you never know what might be in that water! Sounds like your friend Totti, who is a Champion, is a nice fellow. At the barn, where I live, there is a horse that has been to the Olympics. He is a nice fellow too and not at all big on himself. 🐴
Hi Biasini – so nice to meet you too, and it’s the best thing isn’t it – having good friends to communicate with!
Thank you, Sue! They always do. And today she left for Umeå and Milo is so sad.
Your last picture is a great example of communication!
Between themselves they are very good at it, yes!
Great post, what breed of dog are you?
Me and Totti, we are Lagotto Romagnolos.
It’s a dog’s life- ha! 🙂 🙂 I can see the love between Milo and Emma. And your love for both, from behind the camera.
Thank you, Jo! Well, communication!
