Starts with waking the hu’parents, having snuggles and going for walkies. It was a beautiful sunny morning and we didnt see another human. The acequia was running today so I went for a paddle.
We got to the Ermita and hu’mum wanted to take a Christmas day photo of me and Tapa but Tapa wouldnt stay still so its just me.
On our way down look who came out to see us on Christmas day, we hadnt seen them for a few days.
This small group of Ibex come down from the mountains every winter to live where its a little warmer. For years I used to get so excited when I saw them and was a little uncontrollable but now im better behaved. Although I did have a mishap recently where I did get a little over excited (first time of seeing them this year) hu’mum had to let me go as I was pulling her over, but I was good and stayed on the path and didnt go up or down the mountain to chase them.
There is a big male in this group and hu’mum thinks he is gorgeous, but she hasnt managed to get a photo of him yet. He just stays lying down when we come past. In the photo below you can just see his horns.
Once we got home and had cooled off after our walkies we were given a real treat of bones! The butcher had given the hu’parents a bag of meat and bones for us. Nom nom nom, as our furpal angel Benson would say.
So as you can see it was a pretty good day. We hope you all had a great Christmas too.
Hu’mum managed to this pic of the big male Ibex this morning, still not his body but at least you can see his head.
And I got this for breakfast today!
Its been a sad year for us with Bruno leaving for the Rainbow Bridge, other furpals going to, but our pal Benson, @bensonthehusky was such a shock. We will miss his tweets, run free Benson and big hugs to his, in Bensons words, ape.
On a happy note, a new edition to our pack is arriving soon. Here is a sneak preview of her.
