Well let me start off by saying I have not posted in a while but tried reading a little. There are so many new members now!
We have had a busy summer with the kids home. Started our summer on the Big Island and took a couple of pictures of what I believe to be yellow foots. I have been going to the same resort for 16 years and never really had the chance to take photos of them but this time they were out and close up.
We also lost our "Prozac" dog of 14 yrs on July 3rd. We rescued her when she was 6 months and was a little crazy but we all loved her. Putting down a dog was the hardest decision we have ever had to make. My kids were surprisingly strong after all the tears we had. I think it helped that we still have two labs.
Now we are in the middle of building a new 35'x12' pen for my two 5" red foots Roxy and Dusty. We are not done but it's a great start. I still need to buy cinder blocks for one side, plant grass, seeds, plants and put in hides and watering areas. Next spring we will add a heated house and misters. I chose this spot because the grape vines give plenty of summer shade and lots of sun in the winter. I'm in inland San Diego so we have plenty of warm days during our "winter." It also has a water faucet with a soaker house I can use for now and a hose near by to mist it a few times a day. Now that the sides are up & needs to be secure the fun begins.
Thanks for reading and looking at my photos.
