20160224 Early February: RIP Buddy, local scenes including Grouse

The most significant event that happened to me in February was the loss of Buddy on the night of Feb 18th.  He had a long and interesting life, being born to cosmopolitan parents in 1998 (as near as we can tell).  Many masters, always engaged and affectionate.  Here he is in the truck:

January went out in a warm fog

With many  creeks and ditches flowing: P1750465-1

But things got back to normal with a cold snap in Mid February:

We saw this lone Ruffed Grouse on the side of Hwy 529 ….

And, yesterday, we came across a flock of immature and female Spruce Grouse on Riverside Drive.

We haven’t been keeping this blog up to date recently as I had some medical issues that needed to be resolved.  I was very well cared for and am up and about, rarin’ to go!   Big snowstorm forecast for this afternoon and tomorrow so maybe we’ll get some more snow pix.

 

Who knows what we’ll see.

  1. So sorry to hear about Buddy, he’ll be with you in your heart. I lost my Callie in the past August, I am waiting until another senior Aussie needs me, but it’s taking a long time. The Pics are lovely as usual,and am glad to hear you are back on the road again. Cheers, Jan

  2. So sorry to hear about your pal Buddy Tom. I’m sure you made some wonderful memories together. Love the picture of him….and the grouse pics are wonderful.
