Last night we walked to the local pond and took two of our little shih tzus with us. Shakes is in the foreground and Emma coming behind him. They weren't sure about the gravel road so very gingerly made their way. Also, it was quite warm and humid, but when they got to the pond they quickly lapped up some cool water --- and nearly fell in! It was their first time at the pond and they were quite curious about the little Missouri Peepers (tiny little frogs that make big noises). When I looked at the photos I took during our hike I noticed this one was pretty much monochromatic, even though it is in full color.
For the rest of the story, here are two photos that contain the Missouri Peepers, and a photo of the pretty little pond just down the hill from us.
Gotta love the country!
