A rain overnight really made the fall colors pop on Sunday, and everywhere you look it's just a gorgeous rainbow of trees. Initially, in the past couple of weeks, it looked like it would be a muted autumn -- some years are just more splendid than others, depending on weather -- but suddenly the colors are really vibrant. I took that shot Sunday morning around the pond below the house. (Click on the photo for a larger image.)
Widget is doing okay ... she had two days of occasional nausea after the initial chemo treatment, but we got that cleared up and she's back to eating with gusto. (She's on anti-nausea meds as part of her chemo regimen.) Over the weekend she had some issues with the "other end," but that too is resolving thanks to our old friend metronidazole. She ate a big dinner Sunday night and then wandered around the front yard, taking in the evening airs. But no camping out -- a bit too chilly for that.
New Shelter Challenge Begins
The latest round of the Shelter Challenge is underway and runs until October 13. You can vote every day here. To search for us, type in our name, Rolling Dog Farm, and Lancaster, NH 03584.
They have redesigned the contest site and made other changes. Please note that I cannot help with technical or voting problems. I also do not have an "inside track" to anyone at the Shelter Challenge, and I don't know any more about the contest than anyone else does. So if you find yourself having issues, please consult their FAQ page here and their Rules page, which is a pop-up you can find linked on this page.
Thanks for your votes!
