Monday Update.

It's a bit blurry, but here is part of the pile of puppies taken a few moments ago. They are all getting bigger and bigger, and yesterday they began to play a bit. One of them tried to bite another on the back, and did the head shake, but it was all in slow motion, so quite amusing to watch. It's hard to believe they are 2 1/2 weeks old already.
Mom found this frog while she was out in the rose garden doing some weeding. It so closely matches the wood chips in color, it's really incredible. I think we'll have lots of frogs this year as we've had almost 20 inches of rain so far, well above our yearly average.
The bird is a green heron, according to Brian. He's perched on the edge of the pool out back which is now a Koi pond. It's actually the third type of heron we've had out back. First to appear last year was a night heron (we think he was a young one) and we have a great blue heron who routinely visits. So far they have left the Koi and gold fish alone, preferring to focus on the mosquito fish (and there are hundreds of those).
