bananas, pendant, watch dog

"Come on, banana cake, " says a mother to her dawdling child.

A slim and elegant MP3 player, without benefit of earpones or connecting wire, hangs round the neck of a woman like a piece of jewellry

A black and white dog is tied to the play ground railings on the outside. Its eyes are fixed on its owner and her small child. When the the child attempts something particularly venturesome on a small climbing frame, the dog's ears prick and its nose pushes against the bars.

Yes, dogs are like that. When my cousin had a baby boy, our dog would sit gaurd in the room while the baby slept, and would go call its mother whenever it stirred... it never failed, and thus, left my cousin free to do her own stuff while the child slept on... dogs are wonderful beings!

A little sad he had to be tied up outside...

Thanks for that picture Rashmi. It was a little sad, Lucy. The leash seemed very short. Dogs are not allowed of course in the play area. Everyone seems to be too protected nowadays.
