Sweetie loves turnout time. She especially loves morning turnout and searching in the morning glories and smelling the flowers. Enjoy the pictures from this morning about 8 AM.
I'd like to think she's *taking time to smell the flowers*, but I think I actually know what she's really doing. She's hunting for bumble bees and other flying critters. She really can't stand any flying insects! She will snap them out of the air if they get anywhere near her ... and she's usually successful. We've witnessed several flies meet their fate with Sweetie's speed and accuracy. She's too fast to stop her from doing it! However, we have been successful at keeping her from having any bumble bee snacks thus far.
This awesome, little girl is an excellent flying insect patrol dog! She will diligently search amongst the morning glories as long as we let her. We think her dislike of flying insects may be the only obvious baggage the little girl has left from her previous neglect situation. We feel she was probably tormented by flies, fleas and insects when she was starving and entangled in that cable with her horribly wounded leg. So now, she's making all flying insects pay! Or, maybe they are just very tasty! : )
She continues to do wonderfully well in every area. We've even found a dry dog food kibble that she actually enjoys (yes, yet another miracle). Her bandage change is scheduled at our group's vet tomorrow at 1:15 PM (not a second too soon ... this bandage is STINKY). I'll be sure to have pictures of wound healing progress to post.
I'll also try to get some video for later today if we can get something before the promised rain arrives.
Have a wonderful day, everyone! Hug your pups today and I hope Sweetie's pictures bring a smile to your face and remind you to slow down and take time to smell the flowers.
