The pup has me taking a long walk as soon as it is light outside which is about 6:30 these days. Surprisingly, other walkers are out even in a 55+ community which pleases my people and dog loving puppy.
Unfortunately coyotes are also out and one trotted right in front of us the other morning which got my heartrate up quite a bit. What did the pup do? Exactly what I was afraid he would do. He tried to run after it to see if it would play. They do look like stray dogs at first glance.
The great parts of these early walks though is that for days the mountains have been partially shrouded in clouds making for a misty landscape as the day gets lighter. Very pretty.
In addition, it is so quiet out that you can hear the hummingbirds buzzing past or nearby.
And amongst all the trees and flowers we are walking by this type which is in full bloom right now. It is glorious and so cheerful.
And then this morning their was a toad sitting by the driveway. That was a first!
