Penne 4 Your Thoughts

Penne Cole's thoughts on food, travel and more



Leo the boxer

As we sit down to dinner – more often than not at the coffee table in preparation for whichever Netflix series we are hooked on at the moment – Leo the boxer is sure to be underfoot. He waits patiently in anticipation, somehow managing (for once) not to drool as we set down our dinner – a salad topped with steak, apple, pine nuts, bocconcini and a honey mustard dressing.

Eventually, he will get tired of waiting and go back to his couch, where he will lie despondently until we call him for dinner. If he’s lucky, he will get some scraps from our meal, and if he’s been a really good boy, he might even get some meat!

This post was inspired by the weekly photo challenge: Anticipation. Some highlights from this theme include:

  • DeeTravelsSite because her anticipation of her trip to Italy is palpable
  • Nomadic Adventurer for the wonderfully romantic story
  • Three P’s and Q for the beautiful thanksgiving cactus, and the reassurance that succulents are very hard to kill (I’m trying to grow some succulents from leaves at the moment)
  • Sixty, single and surviving for sharing her fearful anticipation of the Trump presidency
  • Life lessons for the wonderful story of Angel the dog who loved to have a game of fetch the stick

    Leo is gorgeous. We used to have a boxer called Angus!

      Aww thanks Rainee! Boxers are a lovely breed, aren’t they?
