I just said out loud to whoever may have been listening(Mike, pups, no one??...who knows!), "I wonder if I have any pictures to blog about." So I grabbed the computer and started reviewing recent pictures and came across these. Mike actually took these while he was working in a nearby area called Camel Tracks. Mike said the rattle snake was about 3 1/2 feet long and was "sunning" to stay warm(in the first picture) but then coiled up...he/she never started rattling. Whew! I thought it was a very New Mexico'ish post for the blog.
Update on Boulevard - I took him to the vet on Monday and he was diagnosed with kennel cough and the flu. He's on an antibiotic & a cough suppressant...hopefully he'll be feeling better soon. So far it doesn't appear Ranger or Stuart are getting sick ~ thank goodness!
