The boys regularly stop at their scraggly patch of cat-nip. The other day they camped out there and munched. They were munching on the mint, dry flowers, grass, etc. Tanji's eyes were watering by the end and I had to pull them both out of there.

Mmmmm, nip,...

Uschi takes a lick,...

Tanji pulls a branch to his mouth,

and later the Spotted Bengal Goat,

chomps down on several leaves.

I feel kind of strange,...

I feel a bit woosy too,

Uschi is bugged out,...

"Look at the leaves,... they're prettyyyy,...."

The ground is moving,...

These shadows are soooo coool,...

Giant Black Snake

Uschi spots a strange black snake.

We have a 10ft piece of plastic drain pipe/tile laying on one of the trails to be buried under/across the trail to help keep the water level down during our winter rains. Well the boys came across the pipe the other day and were not sure about it.

He gives it a sniff,

but keeps a close eye on it,...

Tanji bravely approaches the pipe.

Uschi moves in to investigate again,

and gives it another sniff.

I had to mess with him a bit,...

and made a humming noise
into one end of the pipe.

Uschi's ears went back,
and Tanj took off.

Tree'd Tanji

Tanji spots a little tree,

leaps up its trunk,

then climbs past the lower branches,

he balances on the little branches
and looks around,

but isn't sure he is comfortable,

so he looks for a way down,

to the ground.

Hardwood Chips

When I had the boyz litter delivered, I also had 3 yards of hardwood chips delivered so I could put down a new layer of sidewalk. At first the boyz were totally scared of the chips and my actions speading them out, but after a bit, they got use to them and investigated.

Tanji isn't sure,...

and side-steps the new sidewalk.

Eventually the boys

made it out to the main pile.

Uschi wants to see where they are going,

and jumps onto the full wheel barrow,

then explores the elevated pile.

Litter By The Yard

Uschi discovers the big pile of "litter"

After digging out the kennel, I had 3 yards of coarse "concrete" sand delivered. I figured this coarse sand would be good digging media for the boys in their kennel. With the added benefit to me that it should remain relatively uncompacted, i.e. easier digging when it is time for refreshing. I only put three wheel barrow loads into the kennel so there is a good sized tarped pile remaining.

Uschi gives the new pile a quick survey, then

went right up it,

and seemed to really enjoy having
his feet sink deep into the loose dirt.

Tanj gave the pile a sniff,

decided he was a bit scared of it
and ran off into the conifers in search of his snake.

Uschi continued to play in the dirt,

while Tanji was retrieved with a leash.

It's all right T,... that's your dirt,...

Tanj is coaxed onto the pile,

and makes it to the top,

then enjoys sinking into the loose dirt also.

Uschi was pumped up,

running up the pile,

posing, then

jumping/sliding down the pile.

Tanj sees Uschi on top,

and joins the fun.

I guess we now get the boyz outside litter
delivered by the truck load.
While at the same time provides
another fun place to play.
