Orchid Thief

The Orchid Thief

Jam doesn't actually steal the orchids; he just knocks them over on his way from here to there. I noticed today, however, that he seemed more curious about them, and maybe just a little more gentle than in the past.

We've had the orchids on the porch for years, and we never really expected much from them, but this year they've bloomed all at once (all except two plants), mostly white blooms with splotches.

It has been difficult to teach Jam about the orchids. Fortunately, dogs don't require wordy explanations (and I really don't have any). They eventually just want to be good, if only for a while, like today.

  1. Hi Y'all,

    Stoppin' to say "hello" and see how y'all are doing.

    I love to smell the flowers, but don't have anything around as delicate as those pretty orchids.

    Hope you're having a fantastic week!

    Y'all come by now,
