UNDIVIDED ATTENTION

By Wednesday, January 20, 2016 52 Permalink

Undivided Attention: when a person is completely paying attention to one thing, and only one thing. Hence their attention is not divided.

Jax was looking for some undivided attention the other day while playing with his ball…

look

When he wasn’t getting it – he tried to appease himself by playing alone. Unfortunately that didn’t amuse him very long…

Not ready to come inside, he chose to remain in the backyard – alone…

But the ball was on the other side of the screened in porch…

WHAT’S A DOODLE TO DO? –

Get his ball himself of course…

    Playing alone is pretty boring. I totally understand, Jax.

      Oh he’ll play alone all day long Emma, but he has to have his beloved ball to do it 🙂

    He is showing initiative and ingenuity, you have to admit… LOL!

      I thought so Alessandra – Doodle Dad disagreed. But the upside is – he learned how to replace/repair a screen 🙂

      HA! That’s not quite what Doodle Dad said when he saw the screen but it was exactly what I was thinking!

      I loved it too – but I was of the minority among humans here in Doodleville LOL Although I did hear Doodle Dad bragging about how “resourceful” Jax was to one of his buddies over the telephone #busted

    Well, that was super clever, Jax. Nice work!

    Those cell phones sure do distract us from life! They are both a blessing (safety in case of emergencies) and a curse!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 21, 2016

      That’s the TRUTH – the WHOLE truth – nothing but the DOODLE truth. That’s why we’ve banned them from the backyard! LOL

  • Tiffany's Diamond Dogs
    January 21, 2016

    Ruh-roh! Jax is a creative thinker and problem solver 😉

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 21, 2016

      Well that’s one way of looking at it Tiffany LOL I did end up with a few of the old screens repaired and replaced so I was secretly thrilled. Thanks for stopping by.

      Thank you so much – please feel free to take a little virtual ownership of Harley & Jax and come back anytime.

    January 21, 2016

    JAX!!!!! you silly boy. Dash once went through a temporary fence in the back yard — to go see a friend on the other side. I swear it looked like a cartoon — you could see the outline of his body in the fence — BAM!! off he went. Oh these bad, but adorable boys…

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 21, 2016

      Now that’s a photo I would have PAID to see! Too funny these doodle boys.

  • Robin
    January 21, 2016

    Oh no! That’s a real oopsie-doodle moment! I think I would ban cell phones too. Hopefully Jax got the attention he was looking for after all of that!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 21, 2016

      Oh you can bet your sweet Doodle he did! He’s numero uno when we’re in the backyard now LOL

  • Tenacious Little Terrier

    Nice problem solving skills!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 22, 2016

      Oh Mr. N. let’s not encourage him #please

  • bailey unleashed

    i guess a doodle’s gotta do, what a doodle’s gotta do, to get his ball. i would have loved to see a video of his thought process and execution!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 22, 2016

      I need one of those pet video camera’s for Jaxson Bailey. He could entertain us for hours.

  • Faith Ellerbe
    January 21, 2016

    LOL at Jax and #MalcolmDoodle! You soon start to think if you are training them or they are training you. I’m sure the balls/toys will be put else where next time. lol

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 22, 2016

      Oh most def! All outdoor balls come into the laundry room now. Jaxson is certainly training us these days. He’s a little rascal. #fursure

  • Jen
    January 22, 2016

    Hahahaha! Jax reminds me so much of Leroy with his antics!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 23, 2016

      So you feel my pain then Jen? You know why I drink wine daily too! He certainly keeps me on my toes – that’s for sure!

  • Jan K
    January 25, 2016

    Oh….whoops! Luke likes to get undivided attention too, and I imagine any of the crew might do the same thing in determination to get a ball!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 26, 2016

      Well we certainly learned our lesson about not paying attention to him when there’s a ball around!

  • Jenny
    January 29, 2016

    Ohmygosh! Hahaha! Thankfully Storm just sleeps if I don’t pay attention to her but she has always had a hard time playing with herself. I suppose it doesn’t help that I would always play with her whenever she wanted to play with a toy. 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 29, 2016

      Yep – Jenny you fall into that same category that I was in, playing with them. Now the expectation is there – “Hey – you – human – come play with me” LOL
