Posts Tagged ‘Dog Walk’

It’s time to be back and chat about this great animal “farm” of mine. The sounds were particularly beautiful this morning at 7:15 am or so. The crows were cawing, Ollie cat was sounding his familiar cry (I’m joining you), the air had a slight chill and the skies were lovely. It was a perfect way to start the day. On this day I didn’t listen to my audio book…simply listened to the sounds of nature.

Oh…..where was Stan cat? Apparently he stayed home to guard the house.

Glad to be back on the blogging trail…sharing the walks and stuff of Stan, Ollie and Lucy!

Thanks to Jan for suggesting we take a walk at Pt Isabel yesterday afternoon…..as it turned out Jan decided not to go…..but what a great time was had by Lucy. She was leash free and romping through the wet field….including the puddles. She had a great exercise day….a 30-min walk in the morning and 30 minutes at the dog park. It was a restful night for all!

Lucy dog and I headed out for our morning walk…..she on her leash beside me while I am listening to “The Paris Wife”….have the iPhone in my pocket…no ear buds as I want to hear things around me. Lucy and I walked two blocks before Ollie cat joined us….he had much to say along the way. We only walked two more blocks before I felt like we had entered twilight zone with a flashback to Alfred Hitchcock’s movie “The Birds”. There were a few blackbirds sitting on the telephone wires. One of them took a particular interest in Ollie….that darn blackbird kept swooping down and moving from block to block. At one point I picked up the cat. After about 3 more blocks the blackbird stopped trailing us. It’s soon time to turn the corner heading back home…..Lucy digs in her heels and we have to have a moment of chat. Onward…..and then there was the squirrel….more rigid moments in Lucy’s body. Stan cat greets us (now it’s just Lucy and me….Ollie left us a couple blocks before home). Stan is stretching and rolling over on his back as we walk up the driveway. Then he jumps up to kiss Lucy. Stan likes to stay home and “guard” the house.

It’s been a “jungle” kind of morning!

When the down pour of rain eased from “buckets” to strong rain I thought the girl and I better brave it! I bundled up my with long rain coat under biking yellow rain poncho topped off with my Australian outback hat and hands covered in blue fleece mittens. What a sight to see! We walked for 30 mins or so….my jeans were soaked in many spots and so were my running shoes (like I run anymore but I do walk). My hat, poncho and mittens worked….the only parts of me that weren’t soaked through. But the joy now is that my jeans are in the dryer and Lucy is happy to be napping.
