we went for one of our most gorgeous morning walks, ever.
Last week, I took Faith for her snake vaccine. I also read about this vaccine since some vets are not sure if it works. I learned that the vaccine only works for bites by the Northern Pacific rattlesnake, which is the kind we have here. So far, the dogs I know that have been vaccinated have survived bites, albeit with some pain and swelling. Because of his immune issues, Samson can't be vaccinated. So now he's back on a leash.
You know how wonderful the air is after a good rainstorm, so fresh and cool. Something I missed terribly during the dry years up here. So once the thunder and rain stopped, I took the dogs out.
The rear of my house, with my Jeep. The old van belongs to Glenn. Hopefully, he will decide this summer if he can fix the wiring or not. If not, it will have to go. Where old vans that can't be fixed go. It's still a good vehicle, but I just can't cope with having it restored.
Photo-bombed by Samson. Again!
I have lined up some folks to help me with the weeds. Glenn is coming today. I bought a weed whacker, a lightweight one, but he'll probably use my machete. A tool I have a lot of respect for and will not use. Then the people who are helping Joyce right now will come to help, using her tractor and a mower of some kind that can be attached. So, together we should get it done. You'll probably be bored, reading about it for the entire month of May.
I threw balls to Faith before we walked, so she's tired here. She weighs 66 lbs now, but she's not fat. She just looks stronger and more like a Lab. Wish her legs were a bit longer, but she's a fierce little dog that can hold her own. And cautious too, which I love. Can you see her in the picture above? Can you see Samson's dirty paws? His paw pads are covered in fur, so you can imagine what he drags into the house.
Back home again.
