Fall is quiet......sometimes

When my yard is quiet I just watch the dog....Ben. He always
knows where the action is. I just get down on his level and
look in the direction he is staring.

When he isn't relaxing on the swing.....

or sunning on the porch

He's watching the yard .....

On this day he was watching a young squirrel trying to
crack open a walnut

He bears down and bites while holding tight

gets a firm grip and bites some more

Now he's making progress

Looks like hard work for this young'un

So hard in fact, I think he fell asleep from the stress..

Now.. on another day... Ben was staring toward the building
where we store our mowers, and so I got down and sighted
in to see what his interest was.

Mr. Groundhog was enjoying a nice apple that fell from the tree

Like the squirrel he turns it and bites into it

He doesn't know he has an audience of two... Ben and me

The shoot was interrupted by Ben running
through the yard.. ears if he could catch it
It was long gone by time he got there.

Although... at an earlier time he has cornered a young
one and had a little talk with it before I lassoed him and
drug him into the house.
Ben and me... adventures in the yard

To God be The Glory ~~ Great Things He Hath Done.
