Where’s Choppy? Construction Edition

22 Jul

Previous posts today: It’s Day 83 of the Dog Walk Challenge, and we’re celebrating Ratcatcher’s Day!

I think I’ve been too easy on everyone the last couple weeks. How about something a little more difficult this week?

***

The weekly instructions and warning:

Choppy is somewhere in the photo below. We will post an answer on Monday so you can see if you are correct in your guess as to her location. In the meantime, if you don’t want to know where she is, do not go look at the comments. They are full of answers. And poor guesses. But mostly answers. The people who comment here are excellent at this game.

Today is Ratcatcher’s Day – I have no idea where this day came from or why it exists, but that doesn’t mean I won’t dress up Choppy and Schooner for it!

Day 83 – Dog Walk Challenge

22 Jul

The heat has arrived – along with the storms. Choppy’s second walk on Day 83 got cut short thanks to those storms (and the muggy heat). Thankfully, it had been a little cooler in the morning, so we already had one good walk in for the day!

Date: July 21, 2016
Location: Home
Length: 1.3 Miles
Who: Sarah & Choppy

I keep forgetting to take pictures on our walks. In lieu of that, here’s a picture of Schooner annoying Choppy by rolling up against her.

Happy Comic-Con!

Will I use any excuse to post pictures of Choppy dressed in one of her Star Wars costumes? You bet I will – and that’s why we’re celebrating a convention in San Diego today!

Day 82 – Dog Walk Challenge

21 Jul

The cranes were back yesterday evening for Walk Two – they are sneaky. Neither Paul nor I noticed them for a couple minutes after they would have been in view. I’m not sure if they are surreptitiously flying in while we aren’t looking, or if their camouflage is so good that we don’t see them until we get the right angle on them.

Walk One:

Walk Two:

A gorgeous morning for a walk. Choppy is scanning for bunnies, groundhogs, squirrels or anything else to chase. Sadly, nothing was found.

Having done yet another poor job at taking pictures on the walk, here’s an outtake from our Honey Month photo shoot.

Happy Moon Day!

20 Jul

In case you missed it earlier today: Another day, another dog walk!

Today is Moon Day! I was going to go with pictures of animal rear ends today, but saved you that particular image, so feel free to thank me for that. Of course, there is always next year, so perhaps you shouldn’t thank me just yet…

Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed
To see such a sight
And the dish ran away with the spoon

We had a beautiful day here for Day 81 of the Dog Walk Challenge – but the weather is about to get steamy. I’m guessing there may be some late and early walks later this week.

Walk Two:

Walk One: Bunny time!

The cranes were back this evening for our walk, but it was the first time Choppy had seen them. She was very interested and slowly started toward them. Then one honked at her (from across the pond) and Choppy decided to leave them alone.
