The girls

I wanted a picture of the 3 girls together & this was the best I could get it is hard posing 3 dogs at the same time.

They all know the sit command quite well and in this picture, they were waiting for a treat looking like little soldiers. I did not pose them in size order they did that.

The second picture I like the way they posed themselves but Crickets ear is inside out lol but Daisy and Zoee are grinning.

Seeing the dog’s faces when a Chewy Order comes in is priceless. I think they smell the snacks. Daisy always wants to open the box. Last week I had a chewy order for $65.00 and it was just treats and toys.

Dogs make our lives better and the more you have the better you’ll feel.

An opossum in a tree

The opossum are often called nature’s garbage disposal.

They eat fruit, bugs, spiders, rats, mice, snakes, compost, dead plants, and animals.

Jack has a compost pile I am sure they are enjoying. Since we have no chickens all the vegetable and fruits scraps go in there along with the eggshells, tea bags, and coffee grinds.

They can be scary looking when they show their teeth and hiss at you but they are scared of humans and will leave when they see you.

This youngster climbed this dead tree near the back fence and she stayed there a good while I think she realized she was pretty high up.

Notice how long her tail is going down the left side of the tree.

In the last week, we have seen squirrels, rabbits, and opossums. Last month it was water snakes and armadillos.

Maybe I should put out the game camera and see what else is lurking around at night.

August sunrise

The sunrise was pretty with the clouds highlighted by the sun’s colors.

I take pics of a lot of sunrises but sometimes they look like they have been hand-painted.

Longhorn country

Longhorns are quite unique looking.

They are a medium-sized cow that is not real beefy looking but those horns and the speckles will let you know it’s them.

Country living in Texas would not be the same without the longhorns.

Tiny Lizard

I was watering plants on Friday when I saw this tiny anole lizard.

At one point he jumped on my hand this baby had no fear. He seemed in no hurry to leave as he posed for my camera.

It’s very hard for me to show the size of this tiny baby so my guess would be he was about 1 1/2″ – 2″ from head to toe. The steel rod he is on is only 1/4″ round.

I love taking pictures of the little critters in the great outdoors.

Nature allows her beauty to surround us each and every day we just have to take the time and notice what is right in front of us.
