Video compilation of one week of kayaking on the Chassahowitzka River
We rented kayaks from Kayak Karavan near Homosassa, FL for a week. Roger went a little crazy with the GoPro and cut it down to this short compilation. Enjoy!
Took Dazey and Enzo to the Brohard Paw Park today. Its like a dog park but its a beach so its friggin awesome. They had a great time and behaved themselves and were awesome. Roger shot some video and made this for your enjoyment.
We have been enjoying some mellower temperatures at Myakka State Forest the last two days. Today has been a rainy one but still nice enough to work from our ‘patio’ which consists of a folding table, folding chairs, and the trailer awning supplying protection from the rain.
We have stepped up our game with the dogs as well. Besides regularly exercizing them with the Bike Tow Leash we are also working on some different training regimens like Sit and Down. One neat thing we started doing was making snacks with their Red Kongs.
The ASPCA website was where I first learned about doing something beyond simply sticking some treats in there. They recommend putting a high value treat in first and then filling a mixture of dry and wet food and sealing it all in with some peanut butter. Needless to say Dazey and Enzo took to them like dogs and Kongs. The problem was they were getting all the food out in just a few minutes. The ASPCA recommends that if that happens then you can freeze them so it takes a little longer Today was the first day we did that and it took them a bit longer to get all the food out. Instead of 10 minutes now it takes 15 minutes…
Oh well they are happy which means we are happy.
This Sunday is the Piedmont Farm Refuge’s Day with the Turkeys and if you are in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina you should attend. From 10am to 4pm come feed special treats to their animals, get your photo taken, cut your own holiday cedar tree, and more!
Then, from 4PM – 7PM: join them for an all vegan holiday potluck. Sounds pretty damn good to me.
Be careful with directions as a search for Piedmont Farm Refuge in Google Maps currently lands you a bit off course. Search for the address instead:
7236 NC Hwy 87 North
Pittsboro, NC 27312
Kate and I spent a few hours with them yesterday and I took photos of all of their animals. It was a great time and the first time I had spent with turkeys in a long time. They are really neat animals and have so much personality.
