After a quick trip to the vet for Sissy’s regular eye pressure check-up, we hit the trails to celebrate National Trails Day. (For those who don’t click over, Sis’s pressures were on the high side of acceptable, but we’re blaming it on her stress level. We’ll see what Vision Vet thinks on Monday.) Yes, we have confirmed that we still have permission to walk the trails – and thus, to walk the road to get to them – but I fear another confrontation with the OTHER neighbor looms. Maybe just stating that I have permission from the real land owners will settle it, but …
Anyway. Given how stressed Sis was at her visit, it was a much-needed release for all of us. Gg is always wound up when she and Sis are separated, so she had energy to burn too. Burn is the key word; it was already 80 degrees when we headed out. Sis was sporting her ice-inside bandana, and I packed a full liter of water. We drank it all with a mile left to go, and we all drank and drank when we got home again!
The girls are smart though; they headed straight for the river every chance they got. Gg found herself in the river because she’s a frog hunter. There was a BIG bullfrog I wish I’d seen before she did; I would have liked to have shown you a photo of him! I didn’t get a photo of her chasing the carp either; I was too busy holding on, as THAT boat ramp has a much deeper drop.
It was GREAT to be walking the trails, even though I picked off countless ticks and spent a lot of time waving off flies. It looks as though this summer is going to making walking a challenge, but we’ll hit the trails when we can.
How goes your weekend?
