You can definitely see it in her body language, that girl is ready to go!

Those Hares are certainly plotting together! I wonder next time if they will fan out and see which one she follows. 

This is why I don't see Elly ever being off leash unless we are in a fenced area.  She would take off after cats, birds, squirrels, and anything else that dared to cross her path.  Except the turkeys, she doesn't seem interested in tangling with them.  They are much bigger than her (in height anyway) and are usually 15 to 20 strong when we see them on our walks. 

Elsie Pie- the things you have to put up with!

Turkeys!!! Oh my goodness! We don't have wild turkeys here. I've never seen a wild turkey. But I've seen them on farms and they are BIG, much bigger and heavier than Elly, I would have thought. Sensible girl. She knows when to call on her inner wolf and when to leave well alone.

The girls do chase pheasants and there are loads of those. They come in the garden and peck the young plants. Elsie, in particular, loves to chase pheasants (she also once chased a peacock through the gardens of a stately home, but that's another story). I think she finds it a great pay off, that massive squawking and flapping as they take off.... 

There are sometimes wild swans on the marshes where we walk, and I keep Meg well away from those. And geese too. With the MegaStar  somehow you always feel at any moment you are seconds away from disaster. 

You know what I've just realised, though? Today is a year since the Megsta came home after her amputation. After more than six months of being constantly in and out of hospital, she has now gone a whole year without being admitted once. I think she was celebrating her freedom, and I can't say I blame her either. So all is forgiven in MegaStar land. Again.

Sudden explosive right elbow fracture 06/12 (caused by IOHC), diagnosed with End Stage Arthritis 03/15, Total Elbow Replacement 08/15, problems with healing leading to skin graft & skin flap surgery, Chronic Infection leading to implant breakdown. Became a Tripawd 9th March 2016.

Ssadly, Clare, Ruby Roo has ALSO watched the video 164 plus times. I've counseled her on the giggling part but have just received a BunnyButt response. Sigh...Meg, some Babbits do not giggle. And The Pie, seriously, when will you ever get a break...

We actually have a peahen (I think that is what you call the ones without the pretty tail feathers) in our neighborhood. Jasper actually almost got up close and personal with Penelope (yes, the neighbors named her). That bird was having none of that with JL (who might actually be smaller than the bird). But yeah... same reason here we have the strictest of strict leash policies ... even at the park if it is not fenced in. Aside from a high prey drive - we have a high fear drive (loud noises) and she would book it and she is FAST!!!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

I came home the other day with Elly in the truck and the turkeys were on our street.  There were about 10 in our neighbors front yard downhill from us and 5 or 6 in our front yard.

Oh, yeah, Gator can catch mice too.   Just learned that.   And fortunately, the Canadian geese do not stop in my backyard. . .

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.

Guess who we saw this morning on our walk? Penelope the Peahen (the neighbors named her). 

It was a standoff for sure but Penelope quickly jogged off ... I've seen her fly off before but today she was out for a casual jog. Now I would never let Jasper close to Penelope but we did have a grand time crossing the streets on our morning stroll before work. 

Notice the fog ... beach living isn't always sunshine and blue skies! 🙂 But we love where we live and we do have "nature" all around us. I do hope she (Penelope) flies up if one of the neighborhood coyotes (not named) comes at her. But I have heard she sleeps on the roof at a couple different homes! She's been in the hood for about 2 years now.

Hehe that's a fabulous picture! I love Jasper's alert and focused stance and the way Penelope is jogging down the middle of the road. The fogginess only makes it all the more atmospheric. Fabulous. ❤️

Funny how no one names the coyotes.
