A pair of ducks lay claim to my little pond and I’m not sure if they’re nesting, so I’ve been keeping the dogs out of the pasture just in case. The two Mallards must have gone exploring because I caught them paddling up and down the ditch in front of our house and snapped a picture as they took off.
Heat is another reason we haven’t been training. We did our annual air conditioner installation and brought the portable swamp cooler out of mothballs. Doc quickly learned the benefits of the swamp cooler (other than eating ice cubes that we load it with) and has camped out in front of it for maximum cooling.
