This is Moose, a special dog. Shortly after this photo was taken we gave him to a family in town who promised to love him and care for him. A year and a half later we saw a sick abandoned dog foraging through a trash bin for food. The good people in the bus garage let him sleep in a storage area and they even got a vet to try to treat his terrible skin problems but he was not approachable. I was shocked when my wife told me she thought he was Moose. He was our puppy, abandoned and so thin his bones protruded along his curved spine. We had a vet inject him with a strong tranquilizer and when he went down, I carried him in our car back to our villa. He was placed in a large fenc d area with a warm dry shelter. I expected to be greeted by a mean dangerous dog the next morning, is a very large dog with the characteristics of a big pit bull and very intimidating even in his sorry state.
Instead Moose was happy and bouncing. Clearly he recognized us and especially his mother, who btw completely rejects him even today. I'll skip the next chapter of Moose's story and say that he is now a wonderful happy animal with a home and family who love him dearly. I do not understand people who treat animals so badly. I hope I don't meet those people in town who abandoned Moose instead of just returning him to us.

Black Squirrel. After the first heavy frost the frozen crabapples, about the size of a thumbnail, thaw out and begin to ferment. The animals and birds love them and often get drunk. As is the case with this handsome fellow.
