This morning, LD made waffles using her waffle iron and the mixer I got her for Christmas. She put cheese and bacon in the waffle batter and we tried to fry eggs in the waffle iron on top of the waffled, which was perhaps a mixed success.
We went for a walk to small city park with fountains and a small lake, taking along Dog and Dumb Dog. The later barked his high-pitched, hysterical bark at the ducks and geese, and even ran at the heron, who lazily flapped across the lake when he approached. At last, he jumped into the very cold water to chase the ducks, but since he was on a leash, he didn't get very far.
On the way back, we saw a coyote wandering past some houses, right there in broad open daylight. DD barked and pulled at the coyote, who was very chill for a feral beast. He padded around, looking for an exit, and then just curled up in somebody's flower bed right by the driveway. He looked at us languidly, with no apparent concern, as four humans and two dogs (one yelping and straining) passed on the other side of the street.
When we got home, Crab and I washed both dogs in the tub. Wet dog doesn't smell very good but once they dried it was a real improvement. Which is better be, because washing two large dogs is a laborious, wet ordeal, and not at all the comic craziness of movies and TV ads.
