My goodness, I almost forgot that I have a picture of my 'new' dog truck online!
(actually, it's not new - just all refitted and repainted!!! But it looks NOTHING like it
did before!). Our sincerest thanks to our good friend, Roger Morey - he put a lot of time
and heart into making them look so good!!
Not much new here. I've been having sleepless nights thanks to a coyote that is hanging
around the edge of the dog yard. This is the first time in 10 years that we have had an
ongoing problem like this! I'm not really worried about the Siberians, in fact, they don't
even seemed bothered much by the visitor, but my 15 year old, half blind, mostly deaf
Sheltie X house dog is a worry. He is only allowed supervised time outside right now. I
got Mark up at 4am when the coyote was out at the entrance to the yard. He fired a few
shots into the air, but it only scared our visitor away for an hour or so. I'm worried
that if they keep getting braver, they might start bothering the Sibes. Mr. Coyote is
going to have to take the hint that he is not welcome here - or we are going to be forced
into looking at getting rid of him :(
Well, yesterday was too warm to run the dogs, but today is a little cooler, so I'm
heading out to run right away! Talk to you all again soon!
