My malaise was eradicated by a stunning sunset romp. The Labraduo was in fine form.
Any hint of lingering malaise was put to rest when I visited my most long standing (18 months) and productive wildlife camera. A coyote couple had marked the scent post two days ago. I loved capturing the instant that the dirt was flying backward from the coyote kicking with his hind paws like we've seen our dogs do.
