We then proceeded on walking further to the area we normally go to where it's nice and grassy. On our way there, I opted to go on a different side of a ditch than I normally do, to stay away from a horse trailer that smelled strongly of horses, and also to keep an eye for these said horses. Ronix has often sassed my parents horses through the fence, so I don't trust him around them. We are walking along, Ronix and Vienna are playing with their tennis balls, when all of a sudden I realize Ronix is rolling. Rolling in something...dead...and bloody. Ugh. I tell him to leave it, and try to keep walking to get him to follow me. Meanwhile Ronix is just staring at me with a gleam in his eye that hints strongly of naughtiness, starts wagging his tail at super speed, and snaps up the something dead and awfully bloody and EATS IT!!! The whole time while just looking at me with that naughty "HAHA" look in his eyes. Now, I can say this is funny today, but Tuesday I just wanted to puke...I can't say I wanted to throw his tennis ball after that, no thank you. Not with grimy pieces of who knows what he just ate. Blah.
So we went home, and Ronix had a very thorough bath to get the patches of bloodiness, not to mention the smell. Wow! He listened very well though, he stepped in the bath all by himself while the water was running, and even stayed in there while I shut him in the room and went to get a cup to pour water on him. He knows when I'm serious I guess haha!
Today the weather is glorious, so I packed up a bag with a blanket, snack and water to go to the field to do some reading, except I forgot a book, so I focused on taking some pictures of the rascals instead. Of course, the first thing Ronix does, since he's clean and all, is find a giant mud puddle and soak for a while. Oye, I tell you these guys keep me on my toes! It was so nice to sit and relax in the sunshine. Vienna even sat in my lap and soaked up some rays with me. And yes, I do mean literally sitting in my lap. :) I tried to get a good picture, but my arms just weren't long enough.
I hope everyone is doing well and soaking up the sunshine when you can! Here's to sunny spring weather!
