Wet Birds, Wet Dog, Dry Eagle 3/2/2012
Ok, gang. When I start talking about birds and dogs taking baths, you know it’s been a slow week.
You know that photo of the robin behind our chain-link fence on Monday's post? Well, yesterday he and all his buddies dove into a puddle across the street and had themselves a fine old time taking mud baths.
One cardinal crashed the party, but no one seemed to mind.
Sometimes I have to bathe Bear between groomings, and usually I do it outside. This week though I tried out a new shower head with a detachable wand we bought for one of the guest bathrooms. I wanted to see if I could get him clean without getting myself soaked in the process. As you can see, I ended up halfway in the tub with him, but it was still better than when we try this outside!
Coming home this week, we turned the last curve before our house and came upon a bald eagle in the middle of the road, helping himself to some yummy roadkill. Geez, I wish I could have gotten my camera out of my purse faster! He was already in the trees by the time I focused, but this is still a pretty close encounter with America's national bird!
All of ya’ll put your heads together and hope that something newsworthy happens over the weekend I can write about (GOOD newsworthy, of course). I know we’ll in that “after New Year’s, before Spring” lull, but gracious, it’s been slow as pouring syrup around here.
See you on Monday! God bless.
