Far Guy is better today, he is upright and ate some breakfast. His fever is gone. He slept all night long and most of yesterday. Chance was very worried about him. I was worried too. As most of you know, Far Guy has Trigeminal Neuralgia and has pain everyday. When he is ill and has a temperature the Trigeminal Neuralgia is always worse. Thankfully he was able to keep his medication down, it was touch and go there for awhile..I think the worst has passed. Thank you everyone for your kind comments!
He gets a flu shot to avoid the flu..apparently it is NOT working.
“The lonely blue hockey ball”
It snowed off and on all day yesterday. Chance and I went out and played ball many times. Far Guy usually goes in and out all day long..playing ball, and hockey and chase me. They go for walks together and do guy stuff. They fill the bird feeders and sweep the walk. They do exciting“stuff” out in the workshop/greenhouse. I play ball and then I do boring “stuff” like watching the birds..and taking photographs.
This is a Common Redpoll, the ones with the rose breasts are males. The plainer ones are either females or juveniles. A group of Redpolls is called a “gallup” I didn’t know that..I learn something new everyday!
Redpolls love Niger thistle seed..we have two feeders that we try to keep full of thistle seed and many of the birds end up on the ground eating below the feeders.
Someone asked if Chance chases the birds..no he watches them..and they watch him..they will fly if he runs through the bird feeding area. Yesterday he chased a big fat grey squirrel out of the feeder area and up a tree. Somehow I think the birds know that Chance is their friend:)
