“Dogs are great. Bad dogs, if you can really call them that, are perhaps the greatest of them all.” 

Today I am taking the day off. Don’t worry, my finger is getting better. The pain is less acute as long as I use my hand not so much. When typing, I have to take breaks to put my hand up. I don’t see the surgeon for another couple of weeks.

Today is a beautiful day. My friends are bringing lunch. We’ll sit on the deck and enjoy the day.

I will give you a Nala story. Last night around 1 am, Henry and Nala went out but only Henry came back inside the house. I knew something was going on so I went out on the deck. I saw Nala run across the yard below the deck with something grey in her mouth so I knew she had a critter of sorts, and I knew she’d be outside for a while.

She tried to bring her animal inside about a half hour later, but I shooed her back outside. In a while, she came in without the creature, took a biscuit and ran right back outside. I looked later and saw the creature on the deck outside the door. It was a small possum. Nala ran and grabbed it before I could toss it outside the yard. I went back to my reading.

Around 3 am Nala came inside and jumped on the couch. She was done. I went to bed.

    Hi Kat,

    Glad to hear your finger is improving. Did Nala eat the possum? Maybe you don’t want to know. 🙂 Another clear and warming day, 88° for the high temperature. Some rain is forecasted for the middle of next week. You don’t have to reply, give your finger a long break. 🙂

      Hi Bob,
      Nala never eats what she catches. She plays with them and runs the yard with the creatures in her mouth. After a while she loses interest then I toss them over the fence.

      We had lunch on the deck but then it started to get colder so we cleaned up and went back inside.
