Some of my favorite pictures from August.
An early morning walk at a nearby park.
In the evening, deer come right up to our fence - helps that we throw over old bread and watermelon rinds - racoons come too.
This month, deer didn't run when they saw us riding through the woods in the Mule. They just stood there and watched us go by.
This is another day - see how much smaller this one is. The bright red/orange eyes indicate that he is a male. Females have soft brown eyes.
The boys talking to Jyah who's being towel-dried. Scotty being towel-dried Joey complaining.
Another thing we saw a lot of this August was box turtles. The one above is quite old (by size) - see my hand size in comparison.
Scotty just scissored Joey just scissored All four just groomed.
What Mule rides would be like if the dogs had their way (above).
Joey and Scotty - Jyah and Sydney
At the park Jyah, Sydney, Joey, and Scotty then a visit to PetSmart

Bringing the morning newspaper On a rock at the park A hind view walking the trails
"Whatja doin' Dad?" Scotty stalking his brother There's deer on the other side of the fence
What deer see when the dogs and we are riding the Mule through the woods.
Checking for deer. We found a turkey feather on our Mule ride Scotty loved playing with it
When we went to the park this day, we saw a turkey in the field across from the entrance.
Wouldn't it be nice if Scotty really could do the mowing?! But, he'd rather watch deer and go to the park.
Scotty stalking his brother Joey on "cement mountain" Joey hugging his mom.
Jumping up through circle cut-out Going up to 8' tall tower and down
We found this lovely old graveyard to blue-screen the boys into for their upcoming Halloween movie.
First thing in the morning, we play for about an hour. Then we rest, have breakfast, and get our teeth brushed
Jumps are set up in the basement for practice. Joey sleeps with a monkey. Jyah (12) and Sydney (11)
Scotty stalking his brother Scotty chasing his brother Joey and Scotty after their bath.
"Oh, my, what big teeth you have!" The dogs don't see what I see . . . squirrel in the hole.
