Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, your popular host, Mani the purebred border collie, here today to delight you with a post almost entirely about me. You may remember me from such me-related posts as “Radar Ears, Rabbit Feet”, among so many, many others.
It’s been pretty hot here lately, so much so that almost no gardening has been done. It was hot today, too, but then it cooled off a lot, and started to rain a little.
I don’t like it when it rains, because it might thunder. This is me not liking it.
It stopped sprinkling, and the guy I live with suggested we go for a walk. He said it was safe.
They mowed the field, I mean like seriously mowed, not just going over it like they did earlier, and it looks very different now. The smooth brome is flowering. This is the grass that the guy I live with really detests. It’s spread all over our garden. But it looks okay here. You can see the creek there, too. It’s dry right now.
So, anway, we were walking along the coyote path behind our house, and I suddenly smelled something in the grass. This was the second time this week that I noticed it.
I really wanted to go into the grass, but the guy I live with said no.
You may not know this, but my eyesight and hearing (not to mention smelling power) are vastly superior to the guy I live with’s similar faculties. I knew there was something out there.
So we stood by the tall grass, watching, and all of a sudden the guy I live with said “You’re right”. There was something out there, and we could both see it moving through the grass.
I tried to talk the guy I live with into wading into the grass, to see what it was, but, once again, he said no. He said we should go on the other side of the creek, and maybe we could see it.
So we did.The picture isn’t much in focus, but that’s my back yard in the distance.
Still, I looked and listened and sniffed.
There was something there.
I didn’t find out what it was, even though I was super alert.
I’ll leave you with a picture of me being super alert, and I’ll let you know if we ever find out what it was.
Until next time, then.
