On today's walk, I bumped into my good buddy Garth and met a new one, Gigi!
Garth is a PBGV (Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, pronounced "puh-TEE ba-SAY gree-FO(N) von-day-ON")...aren't ya glad they go by their initials?! That name's almost as long as my breed's name! He is a rescue dog and very, very sweet. He's also sweet on me, but I have to gently repel his advances 'cuz Sir Bentley is the jealous type.
PBGVs are part of the hound group, and there's no doubt when you hear Garth baying! He protects his property from scary delivery trucks and dangerous joggers.
After we left Garth's driveway, we noticed how many acorns have filled the sides of our road:
They were everywhere! No wonder the squirrels and chipmunks are getting so fat.
I was also on the lookout for our neighborhood wild turkey flock. There are three of them who taunt me by leaving their droppings and feathers for me to find, knowing I'll go into a frenzy. It's torture!!!
No sighting today, tho'...sigh.
I didn't find any turkeys, but I did find a new furiend! Her name is Gigi and she's a 4-month old American Eskimo Dog that recently moved into the neighborhood. My human was really taken by her. Gigi wanted to wrestle with me and I would've played chase with her in her nice big front lawn, but her owner didn't invite me to so I stayed in my harness. She looked very lonely and so happy to have a visitor. She even tried to follow us home. I hope I run into her again soon.
