Would you believe how brazen this little guy is? He didn't seem the least bit fazed when I tried to get his picture. In fact, he kept turning for me until I got the shot I wanted. Guess he feels pretty safe around here. In spite of all the apples I am using, there are an awful lot of drops that I am leaving for the critters in the area to enjoy. This has been working out just fine. The deer come graze, the chipmunks, the squirrels, even some birds are partaking of the bounty. We had one tiny glitch with the guest list - SKUNKS! Imagine my surprise when letting the dogs out one night to come face to face with a huge black and white bandit. Before I could grab her, off ran Chloe to try and intimidate this giant 'cat' off her deck and preferably out of her yard. Do I have to tell you the outcome? Whewwwww! This was not a pleasant night. Even Buster couldn't stand being by Chloe and under the bed he went,
and here I thought he was hopeless! Bathing a dog at 2AM is just not a whole lot of fun, especially when they smell like skunk. Have to give a tout for Nature's Miracle Skunk Odor Remover. It did a pretty good job, with that and a rinse with some essential oils mixed in Chloe was at least tolerable. I sure hope she has learned something from this little escapade.
At Patricia Rose, still working hard to get some more donations for the JDRF (http://walk.jdrf.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=extranet.personalpage&confirmid=87421573). I will be Walking For The Cure on October 18. Thank you so much for all the donations so far! The Pink Slipper Project (http://www.pinkslipperproject.org) is growing by leaps and bounds. Lots of slippers have been sent to headquarters to send some warmth to women and children recovering from abuse and living in shelters. Please help in any way you can.
Patricia Rose is also participating in the Pink October Shop Hop, October 5th-11th. Don't miss out! Register and find those shopping bags. Wonderful prizes (as always) and no purchase necessary.
Have a wonderful week,
