Our resident pair of ravens visits regularly, but by now without this year's brood of 3. I hope the kids moved on and are healthy! Our dogs have no patients for the ravens' performance of bows and songs of clicks and clucks.

Laika, now definitely an elderly wolf dog, is still excited about our walks, but today she returned home early. Randy had stayed home and she probably just missed him.
Mecki and Bilbo tired themselves out too, racing and digging, and trying to find the cattle that is somewhere out there.
Laika was faithfully waiting for us at the gate by the garage. Even though I wasn't worried when she disappeared, I was still happy to find her there.
For the pups it's now time for a dip in the tub. That means that the will not come into the house until dry. In theory. In praxis, Mecki just stormed through the door and is now licking his feet on the carpet right behind me. Oh well. It's dark by now and the rattlers are roaming.
