Lydia Finds Some Cool Mud

Today the weather changed. The morning was very pleasant but the afternoon was downright hot! I went to Shetler Park with the grass and trees for shade, but Gabe and Lydia went to Alston Park!

Lydia had the right idea. After taking care of business, she found a muddy spot near the drinking water and lay in it until it was time to go home. Gabe took a picture and sent it to me.

There is lots of space at Alston Park but most of it is out in the sun, very dry and very hot on a day like this. All the gophers are deep in their nests and who has the energy to dig anyway?

Full Moon Euphoria

Last night the moon was full and the sky was clear. It was beautiful and I slept outside letting my inner wolf run free in my dreams.

Full Moon over Napa Valley

As wonderful as my estate is, it is surrounded by bushes and fences and I did not get to enjoy the full moon until it was high in the sky. That's why I was so happy when I checked my email and found that Gabe had sent me a picture of the moon rising over Alston Park.

Gabe is SO thoughtful!

Balloons Strike Again

Our morning walks have been balloon free until a couple of days ago when one of those nasty, noisy monstrosities landed right in our path.

Get off our lawn!!

I am hoping that this is a one-time event. It seems that there was some kind of mating ritual going on. The male on the ground held up a sign so the female would know who to go to, or something like that. They both were sure happy about it.
