Heidi Barely Gets Outside

Even with some wind to cool the temps down outside and it was just after her lunch, Heidi thought about it long enough to know she wanted back inside with air conditioned rooms as soon as possible. She looked at me as if to say “do you really expect ME to stay outside in this heat”?

Heidi’s Exercise

Heidi was highly motivated yesterday right after lunch. Her normal path of behind the Yews, up the 3 steps to the porch, jumps off into the yard and did a few rolls on the fresh-cut grass. She actually ran from the middle of the yard to the driveway before walking as slow as possible back to the house.

Heidi Makes Rare Appearance

She does go outside a few times per day and once at night. Unless it is perfect weather she will not stay outside long. Compared to last year at this time she looks 13 pounds heavier, regaining the weight she lost in 2015. Spring allergies have not attacked her skin. She has hair that grew back on her paws and legs, where one vet told me in 2015 it would never grow back.

When I glanced over the fence and I could see nothing that would pique the interest of the bloodhounds.


Highlights Of The Last Three Days

I didn’t realize I had not posted here since Saturday. Something interesting things have gone on during that time. My almost 7 year old iMac crashed and burned, but the MacBook Air was to the rescue being my main HD now and plugged into the large Apple monitor.

One morning 5 deer jumped out of the gulley, one at a time, and both bloodhounds never raised their heads from the ground. In the past, both of them would have taken off sprinting after them. Only Sadie did this time after the 5th one was almost out of view.

Great weather but more rain on the way.

Has It Stopped Raining?

After almost two straight days and nights of raining, it stopped late Friday morning and the sunshine came out. When Heidi woke up Saturday morning, it was raining lightly with signs it had rained all night.
