Inquisitive dogs are never dull.

Quartet

No glacier calving terminus, no horizon – we are enveloped in fog over a matte green sea and on grey rocks. Right behind the sound of a four-stroke outboard motor, a boat materializes through the fog, cutting a delta through the thick water. It navigates as an aircraft on instrument flight might: its pilot looking intently at a small window of light through which the Global Positioning Satellites feed insight and clarity. A second boat joins. We jump in. We leave. Greenland is behind us but still around us – invisible. We race across the leaden waters, past ghostly icebergs, sending wake waves into each other’s path.
Quartet-5
The Sun pierces a luminous round hole in our grey world. The fog rises a corner. Rocky shores fly by. We look back and the dissolving fog festoons glorious peaks. Greenland is saying goodbye in style. It doesn’t matter where I point the…

See what a raccoon does to a big dog: Photo Friday

Sweet short clips of fun with pet raccoons. Be nice to your four-footed friends, and have a safe and happy weekend!

Dog Leader Mysteries

Big dogs behave and respond differently than little dogs. Big dogs can often be calm in the face of wild and odd behavior (from people and other animals). Perhaps being large of size, big dogs do not have so many barking fits at the strange antics of other creatures? What do you think?

Big dogs often indulge the infants of other species

 Raccoons Are Awesome: Compilation

A fun and funny video for your Friday, do share but…

Don’t try this at home!

Wild animals do not make great pets. The man who took these raccoons in, did it because he knew what to do to help them grow up and return to nature. Of course raccoons play, like all young mammals do, they have to learn what they can do, and can’t do. Like human children, raccoons learn by doing and are often surprised at what they should never do.

Happy Birthday, Mick Jagger!

Elisabeth ("Lisa") Rose

Handsome Mick GQNow he’s two! Roo roo roo!

Hard to believe it was only last October that we almost lost him for the second time.

It’s as if it was all just a nightmare.

But, as they say, he must have that cross on his forehead for a reason!

In the hospital. We were so scared! In the hospital, Oct. 1, 2013. We were so scared! He’d barely survived the night.

Only a few days later, it was if he’d risen from the dead!

October 5, 2013 October 5, 2013

Now he’s doing great, thanks to so many people who pulled together to help him!

World Trial!

sandcreekfarm

We are here!!!!

After getting settled on Monday, we (of course) went to the trial field and checked it out. What can we say? All if the fields are nice. Each has its own unique challenge, and all are equal.

Tuesday was check in day. We spent quite a bit of time walking our courses, then dud the formal check in and received our packets. And then went back home for a short break and long dog walk before the parade.

It is real. We are here. We are running!!!
