Angel is one of my old ladies — 19 this year. I bribed her to come on a walk with me yesterday and almost had her to the pond. I’m pretty sure she would be fascinated by the dragonflies and ducks, if I could just get her through the tall grasses and mosquitoes! I was trying to coax her and in the picture you see below, she was telling me about how it already hurt her delicate feet to walk on the gravel driveway, so there is no way she wants to attempt the tall grasses, especially with a baby on the loose!
I picked her up and showed her that the dogs were already at the pond. Doesn’t that look tempting?
When I put her down, she “accidentally” ended up in the tall grass. Oops! Since she was already in the grass, she decided we may as well head to the pond and investigate.
Angel didn’t stay down there long, but anytime I can entice them to put some variety in their days, I feel good. I want my old ladies to live full and happy lives.
