doggie update

We came home from lunch for a nap, then Dad went out to do some more tree trimming.  I went over to see what he was up to and to see if our doggie had spent the night.  She was there, watching him work, and she ran gaily up to greet me.  So much more energy and life than yesterday!  I brought her a loaf of bread and some milk.. it seemed like a good bland supper for a dog with an empty stomach.  She approved heartily.  I hauled branches to the burn pile and she followed me every time, waiting for me to scratch her head after every trip.

I have decided to name her Scout.  She is always looking around, keeping an eye on things.  Dad says that she will follow him for about 100 yards out on the road, then she trots back to the gate, like she is keeping watch over things for us.

I hope she is smart enough to get under one of the tractors or the trailer for shelter from the rain.  It started this afternoon for a while and we are supposed to get more tonight.

She comes when you whistle or smack your lips with that smooching sound.  

I am not attached to this dog.  She will probably be gone soon.  Like all the rest.  But until she is strong enough for the trip, I will feed her and scratch her head and call her Scout.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
