Yesterday, as I was walking around the block, it hit me that there were not as many rabbits as in the spring. Why? Where do they go? How long to bunnies live? Is there a stockpile of bunny-bodies somewhere or do they “return” to nature quickly? Dunno all this stuff….
Rufus crapped on the Palace Grounds today… hehehe…. Emily has been sick, so Tom has had to work most days at the Java Spot… he didn’t seem happy today, so maybe it is wearing him down….
JD’s Custard is now closed until spring…. Rufus really enjoyed his weekly double scoop of frozen vanilla custard. The really bad thing is they are taking the picnic tables away until spring as well, so there is nowhere to sit when we eat the “canine coffee cake” muffin from the Java Spot next door.
Well we’ll soldier through this one… may have to hit the DQ more often. Nothing exciting today.. the usual sniff, pee, pee, pee, poop, sniff, sniff, sniff, pee routine…
Lady walked with us tonight… it was a bit cold and I was anxious to get back cause I had a fire going in the firepit on the deck… lots of sniffing, a bit of poop, but nothing exciting. Rufus decided he wanted to play about 100 ft from the house.. Lady didn’t want t play.. so there was growling, some barking…. Columbus tomorrow… yuk…
Well, a funny thing happened when I decided to write a blog about my walks with Rufus.. I find myself writing the blog entry in the third person as I am walking, complete with sentence deletes and re-writes… I’m not sure if it a good thing, but it is a thing.. I’ll have to keep thinking about that.
Nothing special today.. walked on the Palace side of the street to Union.. crossed there and went to Java Spot.. had a cup of decaf and Rufus had a coffee cake muffin…. walked back behind Kmart, chased a rabbit.. (didn’t catch it, but made a really good effort…)
Rufus does NOT like rain. He does not like getting his paws wet; he does not like getting his fur wet and he will sulk on rainy days. But he hates missing walks even more than he hates getting wet.
With Rita blowing weather up our back door, we had a bit of rain this morning. Rufus got wet, he got crabby, but he got walked! Nothing unusual as the bunny population is dying down a bit.
Rufus did something today that a lot of us who live in Englewood only think about: He took a big dump on the Englewood Government Palace!
I cleaned it up, but I thought about not….
