I have at least six or seven crocus buds in the front yard. I’ll try to get a picture of them when they open.
On an unrelated note, Riggy is doing very well with his obedience lessons. I took him for a walk this afternoon while dinner was in the oven. We went about six blocks. A miniature dachshund came running out to bark at us when we were a block from home. I made Riggy sit and stay while the doxie sniffed him over and yapped at him. He was pretty good about holding still. He still breaks his stay when I try to walk behind him, but I think he’ll get the hang of it soon.
He certainly attracts a lot of attention. Those Doberman-style markings and that saucy, self-assured gait draw all kinds of looks and comments from the people we pass. He’s a good-looking dog. I need to teach him some Stupid Pet Tricks so he can put on a show for the people he meets.
