quite a bit of excitement..Yes, the turkey showed herself again..
this time she had 2
big puppies in pursuit..
she is lucky the fence is in between
Drat!!! the best picture so far and her head is behind the leaves!
she flies up on the other side of the tree and there is no way to get her picture... But, wait... the treasure she left behind is discovered around front under a pine limb that has fallen.. clean up will not include this limb! which guards over camouflaging her nest.
I am afraid she has been frightened off and won't return. I stayed away from the eggs in hopes her motherly instincts would draw her back to nest ... Standing it as long as I could..yesterday (Tuesday) I "snuck" , this time in my tennis shoes, as close as I dared and put the camera into the strongest ZOOM ...
there she was!
and there she stayed!
we will keep an eye open for eight to ten
Saturday morning the puppies and I hop
into the Gamma/Puppies van
and head over to the vets..
It was time for all of
Chloes yearly vaccines
and time for a 9 week visit
he was also micro chipped
while we were there.
there were many new smells at the vets
but, the excitement soon wore off..
Chloe, knowing what lay ahead ,
was ready to go as soon as we arrived..
on the other hand
slept right through Chloes exam
and only awoke when he was picked up
and held on the table..
He got 3 cookies while going through his exam!
Chloe..did not mind..
she has NEVER accepted "vet" cookies!
When we got back to Rye
was working in the yard..
but, took a break
to practice hitting some golf balls
with a golf bat.
he had assistance...
And for Pap-paw
a quick few pictures taken at the job
When the fencing
was put up around the yard
two of the fence post
fell on top of large granite rocks.. Michael brought home a rock drill
in order to finally set them straight.
his drilling assistant
abandoned him almost immediately..
continuing a vigilant watch over
his Daddy from the deck!
At one point he had stopped drilling
and was visited by both puppies
making sure that no harm had become him..
None had and that dastardly
"Thing" started its caterwauling ..
once again this time causing not only
the young Patou but also his
trusted mentor to vacate the yard and
again take up "watch" from the
elevated area of the deck.
yard work continued...
entry decor and the flag
I must share this adorable picture!
Zachery is 6 months old..
he will raise his head and put those hands behind it
