Look what I found ! *PIC*

>This morning I tied my dog in the shade of a large Apple tree, and walked up the hill to my office. A few minutes later she's barking like crazy -- like she would if another dog was approaching (that's another story) -- so I come down to see what the racket is all about, expecting to see her straining at the end of her rope trying to pick a fight with something. When I can see her, she's standing under the tree, looking up, and barking like mad at something.

Sure enough, there's a little Porcupine in the branches up above her -- a cute little fella, quite young, and probably just out of his mom's care for the first time. While I don't want it to destroy the tree, I don't want any harm to come to the little shaver, either.

Safe spinning,
