There's nothing more fun than running around outside in your short jammies, screaming at your dog to COME HERE!!! Those words are not in Cooper's vocabulary. They never have been. He's always been a runner at heart, but really never brave enough to chase a cat.
Today however, in the pitch black of darkness, he and I both spotted the shiny fox eyes at the same time. It wasn't an I'm-going-to-kill-you race, he just wanted to know WHO was in his back yard. I'm sure the neighbors appreciated all that screaming at 4:30. Oh well, it just prepares them for the wedding dance music to begin tonight.
The fox ran off and Cooper finally turned around to see where I was. That's when I say something like OH NO ... and run the other direction. Cooper follows every time. Well that was fun!! I'm awake now!
It was also a fun afternoon at the University. I don't know how this little podunk town was selected as the site of the University of California, but it was, some years ago. Every year they add more and more buildings until it's become a huge complex. Bring your bicycle. In years past, you could park in several different locations close to the buildings. Now you are relegated to a huge parking lot and a half mile walk to get anywhere.
I did take note of this beautiful grass blowing in the breeze. I was sure it would be pokey, like cactus, but it's soft as can be. Anyone know what it is? It stands about three feet tall.
