Dog on a platter

Here are three iPhone shots of Ziva, two sleeping in a comfy place, looking a bit like a dog on a platter.

And here I caught her emerging from an exploration under a chair, where she had been completely hidden, but fortunately not completely inaudible.  As I write  this, Ziva is creating her own musical compositions with a chew toy, a rubber pig that emits lower pitched sounds than most of the "squeaky" toys on the market.  Ziva has figured out how to get a range of pitches, volumes, rhythms and timbres by using her feet, her muzzle, and her teeth.  At some point I'll have to do a video with sound of one of her performances.



  1. She is so cute! I hope you do post audio so I can hear one of her symphonic performances!! With her playful movements, she can perhaps market herself as a capoeira

    1. It was interesting to read about Capoeira. I think Ziva has some of the rocking and spinning movements that are employed. Perhaps I could train her to protect me that way, but the cuteness and the "music" are more important. I'll try to do some video/audio when I can. Thanks for following our exploits!
