An animal sort of day…

4:30 a.m. Lucy had to go out.

Next time I check the yard first.

We had a very close call with a certain black and white critter. Good thing the critter was young and dumb and it surprised Lucy and she was not looking for it.

Although she did give me a start when she was all ‘oh hey! Let’s play!’

So very glad young and dumb decided to run for the back and not stand his ground. We might have had a smelly time on our hands/paws.

I am glad I always take the dogs out on a leash. I hauled her butt in the door as fast as I could.

skunksAnd that began our day.

Later, around noon, I had to run The Curmudgeon to have his stitches checked.

To get to the doctor’s office, I drive past a local lake and always look for the swan. Got to see him!

Then just a bit further down the road I glanced up a tall embankment and got a real thrill. A red fox ran along the upper part of the bank. I haven’t seen a fox since we lived in Colorado back in the late 60s.
