I am enjoying a lovely visit in the country with relatives. For a city dog such as myself, all this freedom is intoxicating! I'm a bit afraid of the automatic garden sprinklers, but I think I will adjust to that. There are wild turkeys, foxes, deer, stray dogs, and a huge hawk guarding the back pasture.
My mother has been intoduced to fire ants...yikes. We are all hoping to not get poison ivy, fleas, and ticks (the downside to country living).
