We had a very nice break, only a week, but it was great to have a mental break. (That’s what mom said anyway) We have just been enjoying the desert and the sunshine. We have gone for lots of walks, sat in the sun, and mom has got lots of beading done. (more on that another day)
Christmas morning we all went for a great long hike, wandering down some washes, over the hills, stuff like that. My back has been very painful lately, so I mostly rode in the backpack. I walked when it was flat and sandy though, and that was very nice. The sky here is so blue, and beautiful. Can you see the barrel cactus growing out of the rock? Amazing huh?!
Then that evening my human bro came to visit me. Well Ok, probably not me as he drove from LA to get here. But I chose to think he came to see me too.
We came across this very interesting boulder.
And of course, the sagauro cactus are always cool to see.
Mom and Torrey have been hiking/running 3 mornings a week. Mom hasn’t been able to run for a few years, and is thrilled she feels good enough to do it again. Torrey was running off leash with her, but some people told dad the other day that the coyotes around here will attack dogs. A friend of theirs was hiking in a wash with their dog, I don’t know what kind, and a coyote showed up. The off leash dog went after the coyote and 2 of his friends were waiting in the bushes. All 3 coyotes attacked the dog. They said the dog was in critical condition. So no more off leash for either of us. Scary!!!!
I have been taking it easy, and soaking up the warm sun. Working on my tan you know. Hee hee.
Mom found a big heart shaped rock yesterday, she loves heart shaped rocks. She made us a little yard art with it and some other pretty cool stuff.
So, that’s what we have been doing around here. I am glad to be back in the blogging world again. Did you miss me? LOL
Everyone have a safe and happy New Year tonight!!
