My own personal critter spotter:Walking Terri is a great way to spot wildlife that you might otherwise miss. When she freezes and stares fixedly, I know that there is something out there—a lizard, a tortoise, a hyrax, a bird… Last night Terri spots a hedgehog foraging on a grassy area and sniffs it enthusiastically.
Terri also has a new friend. He’s a little “pinchy” (min-pin), an “intact” male sporting a very sissy pink colar. I let Terri off the leash and she and her new boyfriend went nuts chasing each other around on a bit of lawn. Now, every time I take her out, she looks eagerly for her friend. She also made friends this morning with a gigantic black Lab. She was already a bit tired from climbing up the rock cliff to “visit” the hyrax (no worries: they sneer at her and zip down into their burrows when she gets too close). By the time we got home, she shlurped down some water and collapsed.
