Thanks, sounds like a good apple to look forward to. Is it considered an early season apple?
Aww, nice story about your dog. Our dog is about 12 years old, he’s quite old now, and his snout is almost all white. When he was a pup, it was almost all black. He appears to be a chow, Shepherd mix. My wife picked him up in a local pound before we even met. So, he’s been on this farm all that time. He gets around well still, will chase an occasional rabbit, but leaves the deer alone. He’s like, “been there, done that”.
He’s an outside dog and has plenty of land to run around on and explore. He’s got a twitchy back leg, it doesn’t happen all the time, and I don’t think he’s in any pain. It doesn’t seem to affect his running. Maybe it’s just some muscle or nerve issues.
He has his little habits, too. When we come home at night after being gone all day, instead of coming to greet us, he’ll jump off the porch, run around the house to the back yard, up the hill, then down the creek bed, and then trot back up the driveway to greet us. It’s funny, it’s almost like he’s doing a sweep of the property to make sure no varmits are in the area for us.
