Moses, Part Two

Well, he went down to dinner in his Sunday best
Excitable boy, they all said
And he rubbed the pot roast all over his chest
Excitable boy, they all said
--Warren Zevon, "Excitable Boy"

Moses (aka, "Beta Boy," due to his happy, willing submission to his Alpha Girl sister Meadow) is going home Friday! He'll have a new, much smaller but equally bossy sister to submit to.

I wanted to post some pics here before he left. But Moses is a two-year-old Lab mix, which means he hardly ever stays put. Most of the photos either feature him on the way in...

...or the way out...

...or, well....

But finally--MWAHAHAH!--I caught him with his guard down...

Any moment National Geographic or Audubon magazine will be calling me to join their ranks of photographers skilled at tracking and capturing images of elusive wild beasts and fowl.

Today, Moses the Beta Boy; tomorrow, the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker!!

A-Z Update: "Buffalo Soldier" by Bob Marley and the Wailers (yes, it's taking me forever to get through the B's--because I am B for Busy)



Careful about those promises, lest you be inundated by retirees and other people awash in spare time and spotter scopes. I'll tell my parents to ignore the Google hit on your post so it'll be two fewer. More fewer than that, probably, as they will activate their bird club phone/email network. And if you think I am joking, please go right ahead.

Almost forgot - that is an adorable dog!

Good luck Moses, and belatedly to Foots also.
