Our Great Adventure
Sunday, June 21, 2009
My Daughter works at Magic Mountain. She has been working long hours, and asked if my Hubby could drive me up there, so I could drive her home, she was really tired. Off we go, with two of our dogs in the back seat. Sarge, my Germ Shep/Ridgeback mix, and Alice a Cocker Span/Black Lab mix, Daddy's girl. We got to Magic Mountain early, so we put the dogs on leashes, and walked around the outskirts of the parking lot. (right by rolling hills, that was fenced off)..First Sarge heard something, then Alice. I didn't hear a thing, so I figured it was a rabbit running around in the tall grass. We walked backed the other way, then I saw a good sized Coyote. It was a ways from us, but close enough to hear us. It was so curious when he saw Sarge. So the Coyote just sat down, and watched us for the longest time. Sarge, and Alice spotted the Coyote as well. Then I spotted a Raccoon. It wasn't shy at all, it was right next to the fence, and Sarge kept pulling on the leash. He had never seen one of those before. So the Raccoon decided he better go the other way. And while all of this was going on, two Barn Owls were flying around looking for food. We had a ball watching all of the beautiful animals. Apparently Sarge did too. When I put him back into the car, he gave me a kiss on my hand, and on my face. Telling me "thank you". I was so glad we took our dogs, and we all had a great adventure!
