Growing Up...........

Hi,  Everybody,.........................Little Beaver here...........

Mom said I could tell  you my news.    I am growing up!!!!    I have lost at least two of the teeth that Mom calls my "pincers".     She says they pinch her arm when I give her "love bites".    What do I know?

 How do you like my "arrangement"?    It has everything that I need............ toys, a place to sleep, steps for me to climb.    Mom laughs real loud when I climb up there and dig for the toys that I want to play with.    I was digging when she got her camera, but I knew that I should pose for a really good shot.   I wanted you to see how I am growing up to be a handsome lad.   I am even bigger now because this is already eleven days ago, and I grow fast!!

Again........No Picture

On our second walk today, we had another highlight.    We were on our way back home walking on the road when a bald eagle flew over us toward the house.      At the house, he turned around and flew over us again.    Wow!!!!!    That was cool!    We have seen lots of eagles, especially by the Missisisippi, but we had not seen one around our house.   The eagle was quite low about twice the height of the utility lines.  

I hope he didn't think that Little Beaver looked like lunch.

What did you expect?????????

Well, duh!!!!   Anyone knows that if you go into the fields tooooooo soon--- all  you get is mud and water.
BUT...........I just couldn't stand walking on the road anymore.    When we got to the corner on the road, we took off into the field to return home.     It was muddy, but we have been muddy before.    We kept going until we got to the area where the berm was located to direct the water and hold the soil.    Long story short........Scooter and I both were forced to ford the ditch which looked frozen.........but wasn't.   Lucky Cardi's, they just kept going unto the high ground mostly on top of the snow/slush.    Scooter, Mr. Timid, had to continue across the ditch through the water to get to where we were.  Little Beaver even ventured out a few feet to encourage his big furry friend.    Scooter got over it.     I was up to mid-calf in quite cold water, but laughing all the way.     It was so good to get out on the land again.   

Little Beaver had his first time really off leash.    His recall is pretty good.     He follows Zippy like a little black and white shadow.     Just as we had gotten back, almost to the lawn and the baby forest, they both took off across the alfalfa field after a bunch of birds.    When the birds flew, they returned to my call.   (Thank heaven!!)

Now my shoes and pants are in the washer, and the pups are wiped off.    Why bother with getting them sanitary??.................we drag mud and sand in here all the time in the late winter

AND................there were red winged blackbirds on the wires when we were walking on the road.    Spring is almost here.

He Ain't Heavy........

He, ain't heavy, he's my brother.      When Zippy literally flopped down on the rug,  Little Beaver decided to join him.  They were tired from a wild run that they had around the house and through the furniture and the tunnel.   I guess they are getting along just fine.  LB is three months old. now.
