Many thanks for the compliments on my new hairdo! It is very kind. The beauty of it is I can take care of it myself, and not wish I had someone to blow it dry for me!
Taking off for walkies, I had buddies. We went down the hill, Cinnamon ran with me. Then he heard Nutmeg and (pretended?) to be scared and hoofed it up a tree. You can see him smack dab in the middle in the 2nd photo! They are a fun pair.
This was a bit of fun. I heard a helicopter. Can you see it? Nah, me either. But it was there behind the tree branches as I watched it fly out of sight.
I ran indoors to check it out. It began far to the west of us, did a circle, headed south of us, and then east. It's the Coast Guard! In Ontario!
We donate monthly to our local animal wildlife shelter (RVWS). We've had them visit and release 3 skunks and 8 raccoons. Skunk and Raccoon Release Videos | Skunk and Raccoon Release Photos, Sept., 2017. Also: Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary Release a couple more raccoons, Oct., 2019.
They rehabbed a porcupine and, upon its release elsewhere, had an explanation of its behaviour! They posted this for us all.
