What a lot of adventures we had this morning. Maybe because we were out just after dawn. Auntie Denise had her phone with her so she took these pics for me.
First we smelt skunk. When that happens you don’t hang around you get out of the area as quickly as possible. That smells stick around and follows for a mile.
Next up came the bunnies but they move too fast when pursued by a Pitty to get a pic.
Deer are different. Around here they are almost tame. When we rounded the corner in the park a Mom and her baby where munching in the meadow. We think it may be Memorial but can’t be sure. Her fawn spots are almost gone.
They just looked at us. Straight in the eye.
As we approached they didn’t even move.
This is how close we got.
Would you believe me if you didn’t see this with your own eyes?
Next up came the ducks. We have about twenty of them who hang out together. They too let us get up close and personal until Jaws takes a lunge at them.
Finally for today we got to see the Heron whose so handsome.
These critter may not be lions, elephants and wilder beasts but they sure do give you the goose bumps when they head to their watering hole of a morning.
You will not believe it but I got run over by a bicycle this morning.
Ma and Auntie Denise were on one side of the street with me and Nala. Ma was recounting some tale about bears as we said our goodbyes to Auntie Liz, PJ and Eddie who were on the other side of the street.
All of a sudden a cyclist going like a rocket came in between us. I lunged at the flying object and in a split second it ran right over me. Like totally over me. It was like something out of a cartoon.
I walked home with my tail between my legs and went to my safe place under the coffee table.
I came out and played a bit with Nala and had a few treats but it was clear I was limping. Nala played nurse for a while, kept an eye on me and was alarmingly quiet.
The bro and Ma examined my abdomen per auntie Liz instructions as she’s a medic and that’s when the bro discovered a nasty open wound on my back leg. It had been hidden by my coat.
So within seconds we were in the bros car on the way to MEDVET the animal hospital.
I was taken within minutes and you will be glad to hear I’m not in imminent danger.
I got three staples in and I’m on the way home with a collar or is it a hat!
First the big moon woke us up at 4:00. We thought it was dawn but when we checked the time we just said a few prayers for the King, rolled over and went to sleep again.
Next thing we knew it was 7:20 and we were meant to meet PJ and Eddie at 7:25.
Add to that the bro had gone to work and Jaws was trying to break their bedroom door down.
So we released her ran out barefoot for jobs hollered at Auntie Liz that we were late and to go on, came back in, made coffee, got my breakfast, gave what I didn’t eat to the vacuum cleaner, put Dads meds in the wrong time buckets, resorted them and by then the coffee was ready and we switched on the TV.
Perfect timing to see the Public proclamation of the King.
Now I’m watching you know who work out her jaws and waiting as Ma catches up on the parliament swearing allegiance.
Thank goodness for those Nylas to keep her quiet they’re as valuable to me as the Crown Jewels.
