Another fun day

Monday, May 06, 2013

Huck and Meg's had fun playing ball. Even Sarge chased the ball one time. That put a smile on my face.






Sarge posed for me....twice!





My friend's roses.










After I exercised the Border Collies, I headed for Godde Hills Pass. Angus was out, so I stopped to take some pictures of him. He walked quickly to where I was standing, on the other side of the fence of course. This is the 2nd time he has acted like he wants a pat on the head, but his head is so massive, I just stepped back a bit. Angus looks like he has lost weight to me. I'm not sure how old is he, so it might be due to old age. I just hope they are taking good care of him.






I proceeded on to the Hawk nest. Mama Hawk is still missing. I haven't given up hope yet, but it it isn't looking good. I decided to drive down the road to check on the Raven nest. At first the Mama Raven was gone, and I thought "oh no, not her too"


A minute later, she showed up.


I didn't get out of the car to take the pictures. She started to feed the chicks, and I didn't want to upset her. So the pictures are not real clear. I think I saw two beaks.


Then she laid down to keep her babies warm. I never saw the male Raven, so I hope he was off looking for food.


That was my day. Let's see what tomorrow will bring. Have a good Monday.

    Sarge looks like he's doing OK, and chasing a ball sounds like it. Angus does look like he's losing weight...do Longhorns shed? Could it be he be losing his coat? We city peeps don't know about this stuff.... emoticon

    Always enjoy your dogs! Glad they are doing so good!
    We have some ravens or crows bugging the heck out of us lately. They play on our roof every morning, cawing away. Then they have been picking around our mulch, throwing it all over the carport floor. They have been hanging out at the sprinkler heads and pecking around them for water. We have a slight leak in one we have to get fixed (Bob couldn't figure it out over the vacation-so got to call the pros). We saw the crow going for a it the other day. Those beaks could have caused the problem!
    I thought of you when we saw a bald eagle on our trip over to the forested area to take a bike ride. He was on the side of the road at some road kill and our car startled him. He flew straight up and paused and looked back at us. He was flying right in front of our car. Wow-such a treat to see him!!! Wish I was quick enough to get a pic of him, but didn't.
    I see you got my fave peach rose on there! Love it!
    Thanks for sharing. I hope to have my new blog up tonight. Been sick for a couple days. Have a great day! emoticon

    Beautiful day! And I also hope Angus is getting good care. When you walk by, keep an eye on him and if you notice him getting weak, etc., you may want to report it or if you know the owners, talk to them. Maybe Angus is just old but like you, I worry. I love animals and I like Angus. emoticon
    Love, Chelsea

    We've had The Great Raven Controversy here. My husband was convinced that one of the crows that hangs out here was a raven -- I disagreed, because it just wasn't big enough. Sibley's Guide resolved the issue. Crow.

    Happy doggies, lovely roses. Love that Sarge was willing to pose! Hope the bird families are all okay. Angus does look a little "peaked" and I hope he is being fed adequately. Thanks, as always, for sharing your lovely environs with us. emoticon

    Beautiful dogs and roses. Angus is cool - love those horns. That's so sad that Mama Hawk is missing. My husband's coworkers found some mallard ducklings whose Mom is missing. They are so cute - there's six of them. One of the guys adopted the ducklings and took them home to raise them. He loves wildlife and animals and almost has a little zoo at his house so I hope he does well with the ducklings.
