Look up ... look waaaaaaaaaaaay up

Look up.  Look up there.  See.  See.  Do you see it Sooki ?

See it ?  Buffy -- I can smell it.

Mom -- can we have it ?


Oh good grief ! Dogs can be so dim.


  1. Hi Sybil,

    Yes I am excited! However, what IS IT in that tree?? Do I have to look out for big furry birds?? Will ring you soon!

  2. Lynne, that's a porcupine, a mammal that's similar in looks to a hedgehog but with quills that easily embed themselves in its predators'snouts/faces/mouths/feet.

    Sybil, you're going to have to watch it around Tamarack trees this spring when the babies are out and about. They're a lot slower at moving to safety than the adults.

  3. Nope, Sybil, the dogs don't want to eat THAT! lol... We used to have a dog or two that tried it...not fun.

  4. Oh Kathy, we've already had a couple of porcupine run-ins since moving here. Not cheap.

    Sigh ...


Thanks for stopping by. I really do love to read your comments.
