Yesterday it rained on and off all day. Late afternoon the sun peeked through, and WHAM it was humid, it felt like somebody hit me with a wet towel! In between rains the pups enjoyed a good run in the backyard, leaving Denny limping. We could not find anything wrong with his paw, but he acted like he wanted to chew his paw right off his foot. Well, we canceled today's appointment with the BarkBuster Lady and postpone it for next week.
My son said, Denny acted like a child, which didn't want to go to school, and had a belly ache, which miraculous disappeared. Of course I'm glad Denny's fine, and we don't have to go to the Vet's with him (will do that on Friday, just for a weight in, so he can get his flea medications).
Getting back to Happy. Early this morning, I took him outside to pee, but he started to woof. He rarely barks or woofs, he mostly howls when Denny's yapping at him, so I was curious what made him do it. I could not see a thing in the direction he was woofing at, so I walked a few steps over to get a better look, and wouldn't you know it, there was the trap our neighbor has put up, because apparently the skunk family just moved over from our place to theirs, which is surprising, since he's got his backyard all torn up, while getting a pool installed. I wouldn't have thought there was a single spot to hide a skunk family.
Looks like today he caught momma skunk, because her babies are crawling all over the trap, and circling it. We saw them yesterday along the fence line. Even as small as they are, they pointed their little butts at us, for coming too close. Wanna see? Not the best shot, because my son was trembling with fear of being sprayed (just kidding).
O.K. back to Happy. He did not pee, nor poop, and ran back to the front door, smart move, I think. Little known fact about Happy: He's a real bad catcher! Today I threw a small piece of cheese at him, and he closed his eyes and let it fall to the floor. I'm trying to get him to catch things, using treats all the time, but we are not very successful so far. I also think he doesn't want to catch something in his mouth before he knows what it is. Biko did that too, just let it fall in front of her, to have a good sniff and see if it's worth eating. She was a good catcher though.
Anyway, he's a cutie and suffers greatly under the reigns of Denny, and if he's not been tormented, he goes and pokes the bear, cheeze!
What are YOU looking at?
I really don't think this can be very comfortable, and yet, he likes to squeeze into this chair.
