Look who was standing by the side of the road on our way to the vet this morning. I was shooting
through a dirty window, sorry... and I knew there had to be another one close. On the left is
Wyandotte County Park and Lake, a huge wildlife area, and though this is a paved street, four lane... there are farms and woods all around.
I stopped, but she turned back...
Isn't their camouflage wonderful?????
Yes, there were two. They did not try to cross again, but started back up the hill they had come from.
10 AM in the morning!
Jester and Lilly both visited the vet... Jester has a severe ear infection. I knew he
was shaking his head a lot, and finally realized something had to be going on.
We were afraid it was mites... it looked like it... and no, I did not get pictures...
but... after culturing, it was yeast. The doctor said he had probably been
in pain for a while, poor little doll.
He had his ears flushed, and now I will be flushing daily, and putting drops in for a week.
Lilly needs a therapeutic bed, she has worn a huge callus on her
elbow, and it is hurting her. So.. next week... we'll make a trip to
get one for her.
We had several for Ranger when he was still alive... but they were torn up
both by him and the pugs.
Here is Anthony, the hardest working young man in Wyandotte County, loading some
feed bags for me that I was taking to a friend this morning. Anthony may be small in
stature, but he is HUGE in strength.
Notice Lilly ignoring him (again).
He takes five steps to her one.
I swear to you we are going to sneak out the side door and go to the
dog park next week... we can't take Lilly, who does not get along with
other dogs very well.
They are just the best babies, and are so good when they are riding around with me.
They had sore temptation. I had a 20 pound bag of scratch (aka chicken crack) in the
back of the car, and when we got to my friend's home, I broke it open.... and was immediately swamped.
The guineas fought past the geese to get some. The beautiful rooster on the right was a
"Dumpee", as my friend calls them. People come by and dump their roosters on her.
These two beautiful cochin hens were in a hutch. They got a treat, too.
Can you see Jester peeking out?
They were actually completely interested in the poultry which was squawking, a kitty that was meowing, and three dogs that were tethered to their left. They were so good and did not try to come over the seats.
Turn up the volume!
And yesterday... was
Squirrel Appreciation Day!
I love squirrels, I admit it. I don't begrudge them a thing.
The photo of this lovely little gray guy was taken by
a friend's husband, and I was given permission to use it.
My friends are also friends of the squirrels!
What a great picture, thanks "Gre".
