Yard Work

First an update on my dogs on sick call. As you can see from this picture, Noah's incision has healed and his hair is growing in to cover the scar. He was an excellent patient, no complaints and he left the incision alone. We're hoping this was a one time event.

Morgan is still getting eye drops three times a day. At first when she saw me with the bottle, she would close her eyes tightly and I would have to pry them open to put the drops in. Now she just sits there and lets me do it. She's such a good girl.

Fudge's ear is back to normal. We clean it and put drops in it and he sits quietly because he knows there is a cookie coming when I'm done.

Rob and I have been trying to get the yard ready for winter, trimming and moving things. We're planning where to plant in the spring and just general clean up work. Of course, we have lots of canine help.

What's so fascinating in this spot? There are a couple rabbits that visit us every evening and leave their calling card in the yard for the dogs to find.

While the others are cleaning up after the rabbits, my Zen dog, Tsar sits on the hill and contemplates space. He spends a lot of time staring off into space or watching the treetops. He's always been a bit strange.

Morgan is a hunter. She specializes in squirrels and lizards. She'll spend hours watching the rocks in case a lizard sticks it's head out.

Tsar likes to hunt for moles and bugs. Today there are a lot of grasshoppers in the yard. He catches them and rolls on them.

How many heads can fit in the water bucket at one time? The answer is four, although we try to cram one more in.

Norma Jean is doing her part by mulching sticks.

Noah looking for something to get into.

Lola watches Noah running.

Lola decides she'd rather play ball.

Tess waits for me to throw the ball.

Noah decides to play on the trampoline.

With all this help it's hard to believe we didn't get finished with all we had planned to do. Maybe next time.

Glad everyone is on the mend, but love those photos of the pups at play!
