Dogs and Cats

Growl! My big old dog just escaped from the house, so I spent the last half an hour chasing him around the neighborhood. It was actually kind of funny. There I was, jogging after him, calling out his name, and he just keep moving forward, sniffing a branch, sniffing a tree, doing his best to ignore me. Or when he'd deign to acknowledge my presence, it would be a swift cock of his head to one side. Then he'd keep moving forward.

He was just enjoying the day. It's springtime in New England, and I can hear that the birds are back in town. And there are actually buds on the trees! I just didn't have the heart to put him back in the house.

In the meantime, our tiger cat, Ricky, just snagged a baby rabbit. Hurt his leg something fierce. We've placed the bunny in a box and filled it with some grass and a shallow pool of water. I'll have to return it back to nature soon. The kids are having a great old time, right now, protecting him against our other cat, Coco.

I grabbed Ricky to bring him into the house (he was enjoying nature a bit TOO much), and he scratched at my right hand and bit it. Since I'm right-handed, I'm in a wee amount of pain as I'm typing this.

Okay, back to work.
