Quick Bites from Pender

Tuesday Dooze – The Lookout

Koda (aka Douglas Doozley) had a bit of a fixation with the woodpile in the shed this past winter.  More specifically, his focus was on the nest of mice under that pile.  Now that winter is over and the wood is gone, so are the mice, and so is the Dooze`s fascination with the shed.

Only to be replaced by cargo ship chasing — no more slow ambles along the shore for this family.

Once the ship has been spotted, his our course is set.  The shoreline birds are saved from the chase and the sea life in the tidal pools are safe from dexterous paws and a nosy snout.

Instead, he is intent on the path of a freighter half a mile off shore.  He runs a few paces, then stands, watching, as the ship catches up. His excitement is palpable.  The air is ELECTRIC.

Ok, that’s a bit over the top — but, to be honest, if it weren’t for my red-neck-four-finger whistle, I don’t think we’d be able to stop him.
