SUMMARY: Just some photos and notes.I was going to post about Boost's training work, but instead, well, I became enchanted with the fog.
According to the newspaper's weather report, last Saturday South San Jose got .70 inches of rain and .25 more on Monday. My rain gauge says different.
In any event, everything around here is now saturated, and top that off with unseasonably warm weather this week.
As a result, on the drive up to class last night, for the last mile I encountered clouds of fog drifting across and alongside the road, surrounding me in an odd, shifting tunnel of gray. When I alit from MUTT MVR, I admired the softly glowing agility field:
Kinetic the Papillon ponders her first agility lesson and carefully checks out all the dogs. Kinetic hikes with us regularly, many long miles without having to be carried even once.
The Merle Girls would like there to be some kind of action, here.
Our instructor shows us how it's done. At least, we think that's Ace and his handler out in the fog.
Boost's full sister (but not littermate) TCam also shows us how it's done, as the fog tries to take the field.
They can both really hustle!
And here, for your enjoyment, is the current #1 Mixed Breed AKC (I never dreamed I'd ever be saying that phrase!) agility dog, Roo. Is she good-looking or WHAT?
"Can haz photo?" ---or--- "Use the Force, Luka!"
But one of the best parts of the evening was The Owl's Song: From a Great Horned Owl, high in a dark tree, and I ran my video--you can admire the drifting fog, but then just listen--the perfect sound for a night like this:
On the way home, the fog had thickened enough that I drove that first mile--which I've driven hundreds of times at 40 MPH--at around 20, and at times on that curvy foggy road, 20 was a bit much as the road vanished and it wasn't entirely obvious whether it was vanishing into the fog or over the side of the mountain. Glad the fog cleared away as I descended the hill.
