the assertive dog

Flynn is an assertive dog. Here he is saying, “I know you want to go. But I’d prefer to stay a bit.”
We discussed our differences, and then we decided that we’d stay for a bit more. He raised some good points about the importance of cooperation in the relationship, and the validity of the canine perspective.

Yesterday’s Phenology: Another perfect Minnesota day. We’ve had several in a row, which is unusual for us. 70s, a few clouds, dry, a light breeze. A nice cool evening. We’ve had a lot of rain this summer. Almost 3.5 inches above normal for the month, and about 4 inches above normal for the year. What does that mean? Two things: mushrooms and mosquitoes. Both are proliferating. I’ve seen more and bigger mushrooms this year than ever before (that I can recall.) The mosquitoes are doing well also. Difficult to get a picture of a mosquito in flight. I suppose it’s been done, but I haven’t seen it, nor really care to.
