Icky walk with Sunny

As I walked down the lane with Sunny, I remembered why I don’t care to walk the lane with him in the spring.

There may be muddy spots, but that’s not what bothers me.

It’s the goose poop that is scattered all over. Sunny considers these blobs yummy treats. Ugh!

The wind was picking up as we headed back to the house. Sunny never seemed to get enough of his goose treats. As we neared the road the number of ‘treats’ diminished.

It always turns my stomach when he goes after these bits. Our next walk will be on the road where Sunny only gets dog treats that come out of my pocket.

To the rescue

I wrote about taking a walk along my road and picking up garbage left by inconsiderate motorists. Today was different.

This time I walked after a rain, and yes, there was garbage (ugh) but there was something else. Traveling out of the grass ditch were worms.

Too bad for these worms they ventured out of their natural area and onto the shoulder and blacktop. There they would die except for my rescue.

I only walked about a mile in total and saved twenty worms and two nightcrawlers. In the grand picture, that wasn’t many but at least those few were happy not to die.

If I had been thinking about fishing, these guys might have met a different fate, that being used as bait. But fishing is far from my adventures right now so they were safe.

I felt good that I could help out a few worms today. They benefit the soil.
