Sunday Feb 11 #


QOC - Seneca Creek - Clopper Lake area

Chest still congested, and with a rainy, yucky day, I only planned to deliver the maps, stay while Amy went out on a course, and then come home.

Pepper would have wanted more, so she had to stay home. Luckily, a substitute beagle was on hand...Barney got a little chilly, so I warmed him up on my lap, and vice versa.

In the meantime, Inara was running around in the rain, sliding through the leaves, sitting in the mud, and just having a great time. So, much fun to see. Then she picked up the Clear control and started carrying it around.

Did you Clear?

Then it was on to the epunch lesson for the day - always Check!

Dog park with Pepper this morning, before it rained, but this afternoon I didn't relish going back there in the rain. Did that last weekend...It really is quite sad/pathetic to be at the dog park, in the rain, coaxing your dog along, with almost no chance of another dog being there, or, if there, actually engaging. Case in point, when Roger and drove by on the way to the store later, there was a lone soul sitting on the ground under a tree, while his dog looked forlornly on.

So, despite being newly showered, after first looking like this after the second nap of the day,

[My daughter wanted to know what went on just before that. I told her that I sent her the picture so if I went missing, they would have something current to go from.]

I took Pepper out to explore her woods...sicker than I want to admit with my lungs not being very happy, so I planned to just sort of be a presence out there, so I could claim I was looking for an escaped pet, the one I let loose on purpose. (OK, yes, I worry too much!!)

I suited up into the rain gear

and put the tracker on Pepper and off we went.

I hoped that she would come in eventually, like before dark, but she actually kept close by, and we were home within the half hour.

Peppering 20:00 [1] 1.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Self diagnosis is bronchitis - not a reach with the cold coupled with my asthma. Deep breath hurts. :(

Wednesday Feb 7 #

Peppering 20:00 [1] 1.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Bonus time on my feet last night because my casualness of having Pepper off leash finally came back to bite me. It happened about 6:15pm, and it was a dark and rainy night. I took Pepper out twice, very close together, but the second time she wasn’t really interested in #2, as I speculated. Instead she ran off into Beagle Woods, and despite me trying to corral her over the 2.5 hours, she only returned after I stayed inside for an extended amount of time. I think me being out there was her permission to keep sniffing, howling, and getting as dirty as possible. She must have ventured quite a bit into the small, black bog (Barney Bog?) below the house. Of course, all of the rain didn’t help matters. She was black from head to toe. A bath and then bedtime. Another fine Pepper day in the books, though hopefully not repeated anytime soon. What a fretter I am!

Tuesday Feb 6 #

Peppering 20:00 [1] 1.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Feel worn out, but this is when committing to a pet (especially one who is backyard adverse) overrides crawling back into bed. Have to go to work tomorrow, since I have a 10 am appointment with someone who I failed to get the name for. Ooops. That's OK. Sucking it up is good.

Monday Feb 5 #

Peppering 20:00 [1] 1.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Still very sore. Also liquids gushing out of my nose and eyes. Ugh!!
