KC and Rajah in Early July 2014

KC developed a hot spot on her ankle that she proceeded to lick too much, and so the vet had to bandage the spot to keep her off it.

It’s healing.

This week’s bandage wrapper color is pink.

Today KC also decided to liven the household up by jumping on the bed that Rajah (our cat) was dozing on. Rajah proceeded to roll over to get farther away from her … and rolled right off the bed onto the carpet.

Rajah is fine. Only his dignity was injured.KC in the sunlight

The desert heat is getting intense during the middle of the day, but KC still has a good time outside in the early mornings and evenings. She loves to roll in the dead grass spots to get a good dirt bath.

It’s good to be reminded that the simple things in life can be the most fun.

Until next week… Cheers, Lynn

KC Watching For Pigeons

Picture of KC the dog in grass.KC considers it her mission to keep the doves and pigeons out of the back yard. Here’s a picture of her looking around to see what needs to be done.

I’ve noticed that she leaves the robins and chickadees alone, though.

We live in a city, so pigeons are a major problem in our neighborhood. She almost never catches a pigeon … except for one time, when a pigeon got too lazy and careless to fly away, and she caught it.

And yes, she ate half of the dead pigeon, but then she brought the other half to us to share with us.

Our cat Rajah loves to sit in a windowsill when KC is outside so that he can watch her rummaging through the grass. I think he finds her amusing to watch. He seems to be smirking at her about her escapades.

KC found a dead wood dove during a walk a week ago, and proudly carried it home in her mouth to show off to all of us. My husband said that all the drivers slowed down their cars to gape at KC parading down the sidewalk with the dead dove sticking out of her mouth.

She’s a good dog, and dropped the dead wood dove on the front porch, then ran on into the house. That made it easier for us to grab rubber gloves and get rid of the carcass before she decided to eat it.

It’s nice to know she likes to provide for the family.

Until next week… Cheers, Lynn
