the sun warmly shining and a happy crippled crew.
a dozen wild ducks, floating around in the absolute stillness of the pond.
ellie once again sunbathing.
cuddles (the poodle) and his green and orange sweater was the absolute hit of the entire day.
first he was bounding around and chasing the big guys while they played...every time he rushed them, they scattered cuz he was just a little too bright and perky for the more serious playing big ones.
then he caught carl's attention. and carl has a thing about animals in bright colored sweaters. they draw him hesitantly forward like a moth to a light. he kept trying to sneak up on cuddles to have a closer look but cuddles was too busy checking things out to stay still long enough for a proper inspection. carl is pretty good at sneaking up on you, cuddles didn't have a clue he was being stalked from behind.
finally, the circus turned farm poodle caught sight of a much closer in size to him...edith. and he discovered a new side, the herding dog hidden deeply within. so off he charged at full speed to chase our fearsome demon mini-goat...luckily two things happened...edith didn't see him and like all well trained herding dogs...cuddles has instant recall and returned to me instantly.
it was a GREAT day at the barn today, all of us had a good time.
