Barking Dogs & Lu’s First Trip To The Top
Since we were visiting Carole & Harry after the climb we brought Lucy with us. She would want to see Moxie & actually kind of refused to be left at the apartment.
No worries – she can stay in the car parked in the shade with the windows down, a bowl of water at the ready. We’ve done this before.
Almost to the top of the hill, I turned back to see the view. All I could hear was barking. Not Lucy! Nope, it was the little, yappy mutt from the house on the corner who had 2 puppies about 6 weeks old & her companion, a hound, probably a Redbone Hound mix, gorgeous dog with the deep hound “bay.”
They were not barking at Lucy, per se, but at the car, however I knew this would upset Lu…not as much as it upset me!
So I headed back down the hill to fetch my 13.5 year-old pup.
Because the property has not been bush hogged, the grasses are up to my knees. Well, Lu is a short little Terrier which meant I was going to have to carry her to whole long way uphill stopping periodically to let her walk & sniff.
We made it up top. My arms were a bit tired. Lu was happy.
