A Morning Bird Walk, Another Sick Dog and Other Fun Stuff

I was up at 2 a.m. with Bravo - he suddenly became sick and was throwing up every half hour until 5 a.m. - and then proceeded to throw up during the rest of the day. Since we've spent so much money at the vet lately, the last thing I wanted to do was rush off to the vet- but I did call and we're keeping an eye on him- he won't eat anything but is drinking. One really peculiar thing he's been doing that I've never seen before is that he'll dig a hole and then throw up in the hole. REALLY weird behavior. Luckily Solo seems to have bounced back (he's still on painkillers) so I don't have two dogs to worry about...it is endless around here lately! If Bravo doesn't improve or if he gets worse tonight we'll take him in to the emergency vet. Aside from that drama, Snap and I went on our bird walk today and saw some wonderful birds (not that we really know our birds)...egrets, blue herons and more...it was too far away to get sharp photos, but I took quite a few as you'll see!

I call this the barbed wire bird.
