This morning, dull gray skies and a whirling wind met us on our walk. K stood on a boulder cliff and gazed at the elk herd grazing in the meadow below us. You can see her boot in the photo, protecting the paw pads with hyperkeratosis (overgrowth of tough pad material). We had to abandon the Ruffwear boot because K hated it. This boot is a Muttluk, which she likes much better. It is tiding us over until a custom Therapaw boot arrives in the mail.
In honor of that great news, I wanted a happy photo with a clear blue sky behind K. This one is from yesterday.
For today, I left K at home and took R for a mountain bike ride. The boy was over-the-moon happy, and took flight ever so briefly!
Mogley, as he crazily sprinted to me. More than one person sent me the link to Mogley's Meth Lab post, saying that it looked like R was a Meth Lab!
When I headed out solo on my mountain bike after both dogs were tucked in at home, I felt happy, happy, and happy! I found that a gorgeous buck has passed one of my remote wildlife cameras. For new readers, I post these cameras in the forest, and motion triggers them to take a rapid-fire series of photos. My favorite trail camera company, trailcampro.com, has great explanations of how they work.
As I rode along through wild weather, including wind and snow flurries, I spotted a mountain in the distance that glowed beneath the looming clouds, as if the sun had singled it out for the spotlight.
