If bulldogs were cattle....

this is what the would look like.
Not sure what a wee heeland coo (a small highland cow) is doing in Southern Ontario. They usually don't migrate from Scotland.
Small wings I guess.

Heavy water

Had severe weather Tuesday, very strong winds and lots of rain.
It came out of the east resulting in 7-8 foot waves pounding into the beach in front of the cottage.
A lot of sand was stirred up by the waves making them look thick, almost sludge like.
If you look at it in large you will see what I mean.

I decided not to go swimming.

You mallards are all quack

and no waddle.

Lots of ducks on Rondeau Bay.
It is hunting season so they are a little sjittish.

This pintail doesn't seem to hold the sleeping mallard in very high esteem.

Around and around you go....

Crash has taken a liking to the dryer. He hops in when it stops and likes to curl up in the warm clothes.

If they aren't quite dry and it gets turned on again..... around and around we go.

What has three legs, one eye and attitude?
This dog.
Still patroling his yard and challenging strangers.

I assume he was a rescue dog, he lives near Port Aranasas Texas.

Texas--- yah that explains a lot.
