Still hot and dry in these parts. No rain yet, not even a sprinkle. I haven't been on the computer that much for various different reasons. I hate not commenting on my favorite blogs as much as I'd like, but sometimes it just isn't possible. I'm sure we all have those times!
This is Shadow that lives down the road. He's really pretty. Pup loves to get close enough to lick him on the nose!! There use to be miniature ponies in this field and Pup loved them too. He always got excited and wanted to see them. I guess he has a fascination for horses (like me!), because he'll just stop and sit there and doesn't want to move on.
A few nights ago I was up at 2 a.m. and I looked out the front window. There was a young fox standing right in front of the steps. I opened the door and stepped out on the porch and it was gone in a flash! The next night it was 1 a.m. and I heard what I thought was a dog barking and it sounded like it was in our yard. I got up and went out on the porch and there it sat at the end of the driveway barking. I thought it was a dog! I went back in and got clothes on and went back out with the flashlight. I started up there and shined the light on him and off he went. That's when I saw it was a fox instead of a dog! I've never been that close to one barking before. It sounded different, kind of like a chihuahua with a sore throat! It's a pretty young red fox. No lack of the critters we have around here!
