Nothing will get me out of bed faster than hearing my front driveway alarm going off at 4:00 am. Coyotes rarely set it off, nor do bunnies, but two-legged critters definitely will. I never did see anything as I crept around the corner with gun in hand. That's the first time it's happened in ages ... and you never can be too careful!
My morning coffee turned out to be an inside affair with temperatures creeping into the low 30's. Much later in the morning, I decided to finally tackle the challenge of the day. Cooper has needed a bath for months. It's definitely not his favorite activity and he shivered like a champ.
The hair dryer isn't his thing either, but he stood still while I brushed and combed him, with a terribly pathetic expression on his face. At last he was good enough, although still pretty wet around the ears.
