Another little sneak peak....

In which we find raccoon prints on the trail...

I took the lead after that, as the undergrowth in the forest was quite thick and full of brambles.  Harlow followed behind me, occasionally calling for help when a bramble caught in her coat and she couldn’t pull herself free.  It wasn’t long before I spotted something that I thought Harlow would be interested in.

“What is it, da Momma?” she asked, looking at the tracks in the damp soil.  

“Raccoon tracks,” I told her.

She looked puzzled.  “What is a raccoon?” 
 
“Well, it’s an animal that has a mask and a striped tail.”  I pulled out the notebook.  “Let’s make a note of it, and you can look up raccoons when we get home.”  I carefully wrote “10:03am – found raccoon tracks.”

  2. I wanted to let you know that my daughter and son-in-law will be in the market to adopt a couple of dogs after they move and get settled in. They listed off a few breeds they were interested in, and one was a Golden. I've been encouraging them to look for a Golden Retriever rescue in their area after reading about your dogs all these years. See? You are influencing people with your dedication to the breed.
