I’m going to tell you now not to fret if I post very sporadically for the rest of the month. It’s just all kinds of League crazy-busy between now and then, so please know I’m fine… just swamped.
We did have a too close for comfort nature experience yesterday. Well… *I* did; my big hunters were looking the other way thankfully, because we got within about 20 feet of an adult skunk, just strolling along the entrance to our walking trail! Thankfully, both girls do well with directional commands – the Knight has long made fun of me for teaching the dogs left, right, forward – and they are used to being told we aren’t going down our wooded path. As we rounded the curve continuing up the road, I looked back to see the skunk trotting on in the direction we just came from.
I couldn’t find an image that matched the skunk I saw. It was totally black, with just a shot of white at the top of its neck. Given that the boy-dogs had a run-in with a skunk at the front porch one spring, I was ever so grateful that the girls were highly obedient and the skunk wasn’t startled by our mere presence.
Was your weekend eventful?
