It has been quite a week
Our morning walk along the dike
is such a relief and a comfort.
So lucky to be able to walk with my two RP companions.
Whilst I was off hosting our workshop
RP Kayla was in fact fighting for her life
(it was only at the end of the week that
Handy Hubby and our vet told me how severe it had been).
RP Kayla has Lyme disease
she has just started seven weeks of antibiotics.
Amazing that she nearly died at the beginning of the week
and by the end of the week she was comfortable enough
to try a walk along the dike.
We made it short.
We used to be told our region was Lyme free
but not any more
The tick population is exploding.
We walked trying to keep away from the grass and trees
not an easy thing.
How nice to be back with the black ducks,
seagulls, Canada geese, cormorants,
loons, eagles and osprey.
The air was fresh
and the mist was rising
the start of another sunshiny day.
I hope RP Kayla enjoyed her walk.
By the way
I call them pups
but they are in fact 75 years old!
