ive not come close to finishing everything that needs to be done on a saturday, but…

the kiddos did get a nice little adventure:


and cody bear found a whiptail!


cb was so cute: he just froze, nose about 12 inches from the whiptail, and lifted his paw like a pointer.  i said “leave it” and he popped back over to me.  so glad it wasn’t a rattler.  pickles and cody bear take rattlesnake avoidance class this spring!  it’s supposed to be very intense.

after our trek i went to the hospital.  and after the hospital, i returned home, curled up on pickles’ outdoor doggie bed and stared up at a tree.   something sad is happening.

The lizard is cool.

What is happening?

Sad isn’t good. 😦

Tucker and Trixie have been through rattlesnake avoidance twice. The second time, they definitely remembered that rattlers are Things To Be Avoided. I don’t think we’ll take Dennis to the training as he is probably too soft for it.

thanks for letting us know about rattlesnake avoidance classes, aunt goodbear. i encountered a rattler on the trail last year. i went up to say hello and scared it pretty badly. dad yanked me back before anything happened, so it looks like we’re headed to class.

and {{{hugs}}} from principesa and me
