Well, we have have moved from Portland, Oregon to Boise, Idaho. Boise is the state capitol of Idaho and as the seat of state government, much of the activity and architecture revolves around that feature. At the center of downtown Boise, sits a majestic capitol building.
And just a few blocks to the east, is another delightful feature of this capitol city, a dog park with a pond that is full of ducks at this time of year.
Where else is it possible to train a retriever on the water just a few thousand feet from where politicians are hashing out the details of what it is they do?
And surrounding the pond are the usual ground critters that have to be found.
Then, back at the ranch, Tooey and Carlin confirm that yes, there are squirrels in the new back yard.
And in the neighbor’s back yard, too.
