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: http://lorislovetribe.blogspot.com
