Happy pups and a Red Tailed visitor

     It’s been nice to have a couple of days where I didn’t have to shuffle dogs.   I could tell Gavin and Patty were happy with it too.  They sure did miss being in direct contact with each other the last two weeks.  How could I tell?  They spent a great deal of time snuggled together on the couch today. 

     During one trip outside Gavin and I were visited by the neighborhood Red Tailed hawk.  The hawk chased a small bird into the next door neighbor’s maple tree and missed catching it.  Then he looked over, spotted us, ruffled his feathers, and settled down on the branch as if to say, “I meant to do that.”   It’s something I’ve seen cats do, but never a bird.    We watched him and he watched us.  I was wishing I had my camera.  

     The hawk looks well fed.   I hope that means  he’s taken advantage of our huge population of rabbits and squirrels.  We won’t miss them around here since our gardens are often overrun with the critters .  Mr. Red Tail wasn’t in any hurry to leave.  When I took Gavin in and brought Patty out, he was still on his perch.
