Today is a special day in the sporting calendar for the city of Melbourne. It’s the Grand Final for the AFL National Competition (Aussie Rules). It’s played on the last Saturday in September at our world class stadium (the Melbourne Cricket Ground – MCG – affectionately known locally as ‘The G’).
In front of a crowd of 99,683 and in varying degrees of weather conditions – cold, sunny, windy and the occasional shower – the two sides, Hawthorn and Sydney Swans, played for 2 hours and with 8 minutes to go, the scores were level! The lead had changed throughout the game a few times but Sydney prevailed by 10 points in a very hard fought, close contest.
My hubby went to the game to watch it and I stayed home to watch it on TV with the doggies. It very quickly became evident, however, that they weren’t the least bit interested, despite it being an enthralling game!
None of the dogs showed any interest – I must admit it was a pretty cold day….
But, Billie is only a young girl and had had enough of laying about – she wanted to do something fun…she was given a new toy and started to play with that….
Then Rupie decided HE wanted the toy….
What do your pets like to watch on TV with you???
