As you can see, I’m quite busy right now.
This Anhinga is busy too. He just doesn’t look like he is.
Hey, Mr. Dragon Fly! You’re not thinking of breaking and entering are you?
Below is another view of the heavily shaded area where we play and train on hot summer mornings and evenings.
My Humans call this the “secret garden” because it is usually cool, shady and not readily visible from the house or rest of the yard.
While we were away it appears our magnolia drowned.
Down from the pier, in the wetland, hardwoods are biting the, ah, drowning too.
You can see it in the background of the picture below. I am wading along my path, or what used to be my path. In my lifetime the water has never stayed so high for so long a period of time.
Hardwoods don’t have much of a lifespan in this land of cypress, grass and water. They drown or just give up and fall over.
Maya and Pierson think my dokken or deadfowl training dummy was a toy.
Sorry y’all. I only get to retrieve it. Rarely. As a matter of fact my Human put it away for awhile (several years) because I got too excited about it and would ignore the bumpers to go for it. Now she gets it out once in awhile when I seem to lose my focus.
There aren’t many pictures of me with the dokken ‘cause we are usually working on my focus and she doesn’t get any good photos. Sometimes she doesn’t get any.
Now Maya and Pierson also said if they were a duck they would rather be carried by the feet. This ones for y’all!
I have to stay busy.
Y’all come back now!
