Tippy is my mighty mole hunter, which is great for keeping the little critters out of my lawn, but it does mean a few holes have to be dug in order to accomplish this goal. Yesterday, on our walk in our neighbor’s field, she heard one running through it’s tunnel.
She stood on point for about a minute, contemplating her next move. At just the right moment, she pounced and started digging. It was a Happy New Year for the mole, as he escaped unscathed…..this time. And, it was a Happy New Year for Tippy because she got to dig and then head off to experience other smells, sites, and sounds of the day.
Tippy and I wish you all a vey happy, healthy, and adventurous 2016.
“Let this coming year be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you have always wanted to do but could not find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you do not think you can keep. Walk tall, and smile more. You will look 10 years younger. Do not be afraid to say, I love you. Say it again. They are the sweetest words in the world.” – Ann Landers
