Out walking this morning, Lexie and I picked up the scent of something new and fabulous. We marched off with our noses to the ground, which Lexie usually does, but I usually don't. I'm always prancing with my head in the clouds. But this was so exciting. I suggested antelope. Mom shot that one down (not literally). Then I figured buffalo, or maybe eland? Caribou? Moose? There was no scat (Mom says that's a polite word), but there was lots of pee on one of our favorite trees (any of 50-some that border our block) and we had to remark the entire circuit, just in case some elephant or something got the idea that this could be his stomping grounds - no way!
