Sometimes when I’m here at The Aerie, Penny will run in from the backyard with quivering whimpering excitement. We will look at one another expectantly. A little wheeze will escape (her, not me) and I will relent saying, “Show me…”
Before I can finish, she’s off to the yard — waiting impatiently.
Usually, all I get is this. I mean, I’m sure there was something in the bushes, but typically it’s long gone.
But today I stopped and caught a little glimpse on the rock. See it?
How about now?
Sadly for Penny, the fence kept her schnoz just out of reach and so we endured a bit of a pointer-lizard stand-off. Eventually, I had to encroach on the lizard’s space or I might have never gotten Penny back in the house.
