Evening walk with Milo

Milo and I had a great walk this evening.  For about a year now I have had to keep him on a leash as we walked.  His mother (Shilo) has moved into our rental house.  Her owner does not leash her.  If both dogs are loose they bolt and run loose in the neighborhood for a couple of hours.  With all of the wildlife in the area, loose dogs are not a welcome sight.  This evening Shilo was gone.  I let Milo run loose.  He was such a good boy...he stayed with me.  I just wish he would help me fold the flag.
Speaking of the wildlife.... it is abundant.  As an example there is a mother deer and two fawns (still spotted), a mother bear and two cubs, many foxes, rabbits, chipmunks and squirrels.  The male deer have grown their full racks of antlers and are loosing their felt.  Our bird feeders are full.  The parents are still feeding their young but it won't be long until the young birds will start eating on their own.

One of our neighbors and a very, very close friend is in need of prayers.  Lori was diagnosed with cancer.  The good news is that it is treatable.  She starts her treatments tomorrow.  Although not an AOL member, please visit her:

I love to hear of all the wild life around you. We recently bought a bird feeder and it's great to watch the different wild birds come by for a snack.
Prayers to your friend.
God Bless

Roaming dogs are certainly not good news, David. Will pop over to Lori's, thanks for posting.

I loved seeing the wildlife in Colorado.  I got photos of many different kinds while we lived there.  I even saw a bear, but didn't have time to run in and get my camera.  I was too mesmerized watching it.  It was HUGE.  They would come around at night outside our townhome in Palmer Lake.  We even had a neighbor who had one break through her glass front door.  She kept a shotgun at the base of the stairs and shot it before it got to her.  Another neighbor came home to find two bear cubs inside her house.  She had to call for help to get them out, lol.  I was a little afraid of the bears, but I loved watching all of the wildlife there.  You are blessed to live in such a beautiful place.

Take care!~


P.S.  Would appreciate prayers for myself, as my doc thinks I could have multiple sclerosis.  I lost my job with insurance back in December, so I have not been able to have the MRI he wants to order to rule out MS,  Personally, I think it is going to be a debilitating kind of arthritis, not MS.  Time will tell, I guess.  Will hold Lori up in prayer.
