As you know, we've had a nest on our front porch wall next to the door. We try to avoid using the door as much as possible and are being very careful not to disturb mom and hatchlings. There is still one more egg to hatch; I imagine it will hatch tomorrow. They are not too pretty right now but by next week will look more like a wren. I know that the parents will be back next spring but I wish they'd find a place other than near the door. I guess they look for a safe haven and we seem to provide it for them.
We went to the park, walked down a road looking for baby goslings and had a great morning. Today is Miss S's last day of testing so I imagine we will be at the park again. Our little Hunter goes in for grooming today as well; he won't be getting a traditional Bichon cut but more of the puppy/teddy bear look. We don't mind him scruffy as long as he doesn't get mats. He has had a few and I brush him every night but find they are really hard to get out. Our Hunter still seems to enjoy the evenings and goes wild; I wish you could see him. He'll do circles around the yard again and again, yet going on a walk seems to tire him out. Of course, going for a walk is really more learning how to behave out in public; so many new sights and sounds. My girlfriend, Kam and her Lexie, didn't join us today and it was such a surprise to me that Hunter was much more timid without her. I know each day will get easier for him; he is such a love!
I hope you are able to get out and enjoy your day, even if it is just for a few minutes.
Joy to you, Noreen & Hunter
