November is almost over. I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Ours was very nice and the weather has been great. Lucy enjoyed a long run in the park and a couple of shorter trips to the back yard to play in the leaves.
She has a basket of toys. She used to forage in there and bring out a long-neglected toy but rarely does that now. She's less interested in the tennis balls Ellie was so fond of, and she ignores most of her toys altogether. The exception is a blue tug. It's quite old and the center connecting piece is long gone. She and Ellie had hours and hours of fun with it. Our daughter bought an identical red one so they would have a replacement when the blue one finally broke. The red one gets ignored. Perhaps there are some good smells associated with the old blue one. [Note to self: take those other toys to the local shelter.]
Most often the toy is a toss and retrieve but occasionally my husband will let her win a tug-of-war.
I love to hear her low growling as she pulls for the tug
She obviously needs no toys when we are in the yard. She runs and sniffs the air and the ground. She especially loves it when there are leaves on the ground. The back yard is natural woods, so we do not clear any leaves. They are deep and fun. Lucy loves to run through them although she hates it when they get caught in her rear feathering.
Something has caught her attention. We have a variety of wildlife passing across the back near the creek.
Who knows what she might be smelling?
Last night they did not look like they were even in the same book with pass after pass falling either to the ground or into the arms of the bears.
Today's quote come from English essayist George Colman:
Praise the bridge that carried you over.
So let us all be thankful for all those who came before us and built the bridges that allow us to cross.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
