A GOOD REMINDER

A bird of prey sat outside the kitchen window this morning. I snapped this picture from inside the house.

Zoe weighs just under five pounds. Flirt, Dawn's dog who visits us frequently weighs in between 3 and 4 pounds.

Hawks and eagles have been known to carry off small dogs like ours.

This morning's discovery serves as a good reminder that we live on the edge of what is home to creatures like this.

Our resident coyotes howled up a storm last night. The pack would love to dig under the fence in search of small four legged creatures. We always check the fence for holes and breaks. It's been a while that we have felt that he had to safeguard our dogs against hawks or eagles by not letting them roam the backyard unattended.

Looks like it's that time again.

You have to admit though that he/she is gorgeous. There certainly is nothing like mother nature.
