“It’s Summer Olympics at my Farmhouse”

The Roses and Thorns of Life

There’s a scurry of activity at my farmhouse…….rivaling the soccer match.

It’s Summer Olympics…….

As you see here……chipmunk is taking the high jump……

Rabbit is no match for the 100 yard dash……..

And groundhog is master of the shot put (a.k.a. shrubbery) Look on the lower right hand corner of the screen….he attacks his practice session with gusto, as you see   ☺

“Hunter of Wolves…..Just don’t set off a firecracker”

The Roses and Thorns of Life

Last night was rough…… there is always that one neighbor on the block that enjoys pyrotechnics.

Aura Lea, my wolfhound, has lived through several July celebration noises, without any bother.   This year, for some unknown reason, she was terrified of fireworks and firecrackers.   Not good when a 120+ lb. hound tries desperately to squeeze her entire body on to your lap.   We were totally dumbfounded and unprepared for this……no calming shirts…..do they even make them in wolfhound sizes?????

To add to the chaos, our collie picked up on Aura Lea’s anxiety and tried to squeeze along side her on to our laps.

During the 15 minute lull in the din between our neighbor’s ignitions…..we would finally get them to settle down…….then off the firecracker went………and off Aura Lea went into a panic……

There was no loud incident that might have triggered this anxiety between last July and now…….it’s a mystery…
