The Morning News

Oliver on road to recovery; Coyote keeps close watch

Sir Oliver is recovering well from his surgery, after a restless evening but a sound sleep towards morning. The tooth fairy, however, did not leave any coins or paper money under his pillow; this writer suspects she left it under the vet’s pillow to help pay for the surgery.

Or perhaps she couldn’t figure out how to leave it under a head that is wedged against the door jamb like this:

Oliver enjoyed his usual morning walk in the pasture. We only went part way today as Brazen Coyote was watching closely, licking his lips in anticipation of one scrawny sheltie and one sheltie recuperating from surgery. If you look closely at the first two photos (or click to enlarge) you’ll see Brazen Coyote checking us out. (Sorry for the poor quality of the photo!)

Dear Oliver,

I have been worrying about you and am so glad to hear you're feeling better today.

You're a very sweet and dapper little old gentleman, even yesterday when obviously you were still feeling so unwell, makes me love you more.

Oliver,Oliver, Oliver, if you want money from the tooth fairy, first you must have a pillow, and second don't jam your head agaisnt the door frame so she can't find it.

That is quiet a brave coyote to come so close. Maybe he wants to come in and have a warm bed for the winter.LOL
