This year the hobby farm has corn planted around it and across the road and harvest is in full swing with both of the farmers that own the fields combining the corn and hauling it away in big trucks. It is cold out and predicted to get colder so I am warming up a bit before I head out to dig up my Brussels sprouts. I am sitting at my computer and glance out the window and see an animal in the front yard where the lawn meets the road ditch. It is a bit of a distance away but I grabbed my phone hoping to catch a picture of it. Sadie my one big dog is napping in the house. Codie my other big dog is standing up by the house watching but not barking. I only had a chance to get one picture and it was pretty blurry and far away.
This was yesterday and I have not seen him again. Manny goes to the door and meows to go out. Then he comes to where I am sitting at the computer and stretches up and looks at me with those soulful eyes and begs to go out. He seems to understand when I tell him about the scary animal outside and finds a place to nap. Poor Manny. He'll get used to staying indoors again.
