We loved sharing our favorite duckies with you and we think one of the reason there are so many here at the moment is because it is duck hunting season and our duckies KNOW they are safe at MY park. Here is Mom's favorite duck - Mr Tuffy.
Charlie asked if we have ever seen the beavers - the answer is YES. If we go to MY park right at sunrise we see them doing their lap of the lake - we usually see two of them and by the way they play together makes us think they are a pair. We have been able to get a couple of pictures of them but none of them very good as they very fast and quite shy. This is the best one we have and earlier this year we counted 5 of them in their little cove and three were much smaller so we are guessing they were babies.
We were also asked about my boots. YES I wear boots when ever I go for a walk - I have arthritis in my front paws that has caused my toes to become a deformed and the pads to spread. The boots help support my toes and also stops stones and pebbles from hurting the soft inside of the pads. They are special orthopedic boots with gel liners inside and I love them. I don't wear them around home but we never go out without them and Mom even keeps a spare pair in the car for me.
As a side note - Mom just finished making two 11" x 8.5" - 2015 calendars on Shutterfly and Vistaprint - using full sized photos on each. Shutterfly were charging $21.99 that included a 50% off coupon and postage and Vistaprint cost $10.99 including a 50% off coupon and shipping, Vistaprint also had a much nicer collections of backgrounds to work with. We went with the Vistaprint one so if you are looking to make your own calendar for next year you might want to do checking of your own to find the best deals.
