I love this photo Kathy B – Oregon Kathy – sent of Rose!
Sorry I have not updated you for a while on Ms. Rose. She’s just settled in
so well that I forget sometimes that she’s not always been here.
Rose continues to battle allergies off and on — lost her whiskers to
scratching again, but they’re back and almost 3″ long now. But she
alternates the whisker scratching with rubbing off her eyelashes!!! Silly
dog! Trying a new ointment for the lids so hope they improve soon. Maybe she
can have eyelashes and whiskers at the same time again.
Rose spent a lot of time this spring, summer and fall exploring the “far
reaches” of our backyard — before this, she’d stay close to my side or on
the deck if we were in the back. I’m sending a picture taken just after she
was plowing through maple leaves, searching for squirrels and/or the nuts
they’ve buried. Nila has taught her to come running when Nila finds a
squirrel on the fence or up a tree. It’s very comical to see Nila leaping
back and forth over Rose, as they try to “get” the squirrel!
Hope this finds you and yours well.
Autumn Rose would be honored to appear on your blog! Too bad I didn’t also get a picture of her with her European Hornbeam leaf skirt! Last week she was leaping over and over through about a foot of the yellow and brown 2 inch hornbeam leaves (Nosy Rosy trying to see what our neighbors were doing)– she came out with her legs, chest, tummy and skirts full of leaves! Her
bottom half was 2-4 inches wider than the top half. I started to pull the leaves out, but decided to wait until they dried a bit. Turned her loose inside, and when she started to leave leaf-trails through the house, rolled her over and quickly combed the rest out.
Rose — always good for a laugh or a smile.
