Callie, Michael and I headed to the beach to hang out in the RV for a couple of days so that I could have a checkup on my eye after surgery; scar tissue has developed and I see double when I look to the left. The doctor wasn’t happy with the way it is healing and another surgery is scheduled for November 19th. I am bummed about it, but what can you do?
So we stayed for three days in the RV that is parked in Encinitas and then came back to the desert in separate cars. Callie came with me, and she is not accustomed to traveling in the BMW, so she was a little nervous and I suspect she thought she was heading to the Holiday Pet Hotel to be boarded. When we pulled into our neighborhood and she recognized where she was, she let out a yelp and howl of joy and relief and stood up in the seat and looked around with renewed excitement.
She loves it here and still can’t get enough of bat and coyote patrol. As soon as I feed her dinner, she races back to the bedroom to watch real-life Animal Planet. This morning, the coyotes came right into the backyard and were less than 5ft from the door. Callie didn’t see them, but I sure did. At least 3 handsome and quite large coyotes raced around the pond and then checked out the backyard thoroughly before scampering away in search of breakfast. They are very healthy and in their prime and Callie wouldn’t have a chance if they spotted her. They are also lightning fast and very bold, so I am just going to have to be really careful when walking her. I won’t go out until the sun is high in the sky, and will no longer walk her down by the pond.
