He can still see much better than I can. It was nice to finally get up close and personal with Red Shouldered Hawk after chasing them around my yard for the better part of a year with no real luck. Apparently he had an infection in his right eye that eventually got to the point where removal of it was necessary. Still a magnificent creature.
Oshie having a blast rolling around in the sand. He loves doing this and it looks hilarious. Unfortunately this means that there will be sand falling out of his coat for a few days, even after a long bath outside. He loves doing it though and we just can’t say no to him (even if we did he would still do it).
We decided to take Oshie to the beach on Tuesday. The recent temp cool down made it much more pleasant to spend a few hours out on the hot sand. Nancy was finding Shark teeth without even trying and Oshie just didn’t want to stay out of the water. After almost 3 hours out in the sun we could tell he was getting tired (we were too) and we called it a day.
A short car ride home and a bath for Oshie and we all settled down for a quiet evening at home. Oshie was so exhausted that he slept for the rest of the day and this morning he didn’t want to get up. He may have over done it a bit because it looks like his sore hind leg from a few months back was bothering him again. Nothing a bit of rest won’t fix and he had fun so I am sure in his mind it was worth it.
It may be the only position he knows but he performs it better than even the best Yoga Guru in the world. And now, Ladies and Gentlemen, May I present to you, the Downward Dog!
Oshie is looking all fancy with the wind blowing his hair back. He loves when a breeze comes in from the front carrying all the delicious scents of the neighborhood. He tips his head back and takes it all in. I like to think that he is smelling what everyone else is cooking for dinner and wondering if he is going to get some.
Oshie loves a good breeze in his face. With that much fur covering my body during the summer I am sure I would too. Another reason he loves the breeze is because it carries all the wonderful scents right to his nose. He can just stand there with his face tipped slightly up and inhale all smells of the world around him.
