Now as everyone knows, it’s been hot here!
Hot and dry!
Dry and Hot!
Did I tell you it has been very hot and dry here?
Well, it has.
Still the work has to go on.
We are still changing water every eight hours.
Boomer and I LOVE to change water.
We were out with Mom and Dad changing water last evening when Boomer hollered that Pete and Polly were over at the old apricot tree!
I didn’t go see them; the bubbles in the water were more fun.
Boomer said he just barked “Hello” and went on his way…there were lots of things to smell out in the equipment yard:
- The bunnies have had more babies
- Two more ground squirrels have set up home next to the leveler
- The badger has two little badgers hanging in the badger hole
- Nope, still no coyotes…..yet (we hope they don’t come back…they can live in the draw or the canyon, but not here, please!)
- Hummmm, the raccoons and the fox were fighting over the fallen apricots
- The big buck deer is sleeping in the middle of the corn field
- There are two new fawns
You know lots and lots of news.
A whole bunch of storm clouds blew in around the two o’clock setting that afternoon.
It cooled down real nice.
Then suddenly the heavens broke loose…thunder, lightning (shudder, shiver, pant, panic) and big wind. Boomer and I headed indoors to be with Mom. Thunder doesn’t bother Boomer at all. Nothing really bothers Boom, outside of some men and some boys in caps and the garage other than that…he is always happy!
While we were inside it rained!!
Yippee! Mom and Dad were so happy they sat outside and watched it rain. Lots of rain, really nice rain! (Oh and when they went outside I (and Boomer) had to go outside with them (shudder) because I am NOT leaving Mom when there is thunder in the sky!!!!
Then Mom saw it……
A RAINBOW! Just as the sun was starting to set!
“A perfect ending to a perfect day”, Mom said.
Just then the phone rang….it was Mom-mom, seems that Hank Puff met Pete and Polly.

Which reminds me, we did hear Hank sort of barking and yipping down at his house, but since there was so much thunder I didn’t really listen to him.
I keep telling that boy, he can’t chase everything, nor can he bite at everything.

Boomer asked me later, just as we were going to sleep…
“Do you think Hank Puff has learned his lesson about trying to catch everything that walks close to him?”
“I don’t know, Boomer. I really don’t know”
