A Young Merlin, A Leaping Lass


It’s not quite a dog and pony show around here but it’s a merlin show, for sure. The young ones are racing like speed demons around the yard, usually chasing each other, and there is a ridiculous amount of shrieking. They are curious too so occasionally they sit still and let you have a look at them.

Then there’s the dog. When you step outside she jumps up from her lazy lounging on the grass and charges off to the farmyard, barking as if warning off hordes of wild animals that suddenly are too close. She’s showing off.

But there is nothing that excites her more than a walk.


Last night she went bounding through the waving grain like a leaping kangaroo. The photo above was taken a week or two ago. The crops are a lot taller now.
