This morning when Chance and I got up there was lake fog, it was cold out. It was 27 degrees, the water at the lake is warmer than the air and a misty fog rises out of the lake. We went for a quick ride..me in my jammies..Chance in his coat.
There was frost on the hay bales. It is a fine reminder that cooler weather is on it’s way.. perhaps it is here. We have had two hard frosts this week.
Stories and Rumors.. there are two wolves hanging around together..a neighbor three miles from us got a photo. I also heard that several wolves attacked a dog right in town in Detroit Lakes. My cousins dog who was tied up in his yard was taken by something and dismembered and partially buried in mud. They think it was a Mountain Lion. They heard a rumor that someone had a pair of Mountain Lions that were rescued as cubs, they became to large to handle and too expensive to feed ..so they released them into the wild. I am not sure what would possess people to have wild animals..other than they are cute when they are little.
There is another lost dog(Australian Shepherd) poster and reward up at the local convenience store..the little dog that was lost last spring has never been found.
We try to go out with Chance after dark..he likes the company and we feel better knowing that he has not left the yard. Some evenings..like last night all the dogs in the neighborhood take up howling..at deer or whatever else is out there:)
