Later we went to our creek and as if on cue... the bunnies were running. Now, I have seen Miss Mabel Lou roll her eyes at a runny babbit mere feet in front of her! Not worth the effort she put into such adventures in her younger days. But not on her birthday! Mabel took off after a rabbit 30 feet down the trail! Not once but TWICE! This is the end of one of her bunny hunts:
And if that wasn't excitement enough, we heard such a commotion down in Dirty Creek, it startled us both! Turns out, it was just some ducks coming in for a crash landing! For all we know, Mallory was just begrudgingly wishing her canine sister a Happy Birthday!
A bit later, the Rhodies met up with us and we all went on a walkabout. We all ended up at the levy where there was a tiny bit of water in our stream! All the dogs took turns in the jacuzzi:
We're hoping to fit in a hike to the ponds with Mr. Otto Rotto today... I just love seeing my old girl so happy, alert and reasonably healthy!
