|Toquima, a/k/a "Mr. Cool"|
We had seven dogs in the bedroom last night: Gigi, Maya, Trooper, Vince, Theo, Daphne, and Toquima. The floor of the bedroom is pretty much covered in dog beds; there's no way to walk around them, you just walk on them. We are grateful that Max was content to the stay in the office, and that Summer, Sparky, and Jasso were happy in the crates in the kitchen.
|Broken headlight, but minimal|
|The collision literally scared|
the shit out of the deer.
|Toquima and Theo|
We never saw the deer after that, he might have bounced off on gone on his way, although he would have had at least a sore leg and probably some very bruised ribs I would guess based on the indentation his body made in the windshield. Safety glass is a modern miracle. The windshield shattered but didn't break or we would have had a deer in the front seat of the car. We stopped immediately, of course and pulled off to assess the situation. All things considered, it could have been much, much worse.
|Toquima's thick coat is perfect for frosty|
mornings like today.

Summer stare down at a ball they are
waiting for me to kick or throw.
|Max with a basketball I picked up at a thrift|
store this past week. The dogs love them.
|Theo with the same ball.|
|That's Max and Summer in the center, vying for the orange basketball.|
Theo is on the right, Toquima is off the left pissing on the fence. It's his day back here for a while
so he needs to leave his mark.
|Max and Summer with the ball, Toquima coming from the rear|
|It's a toss up as to whether Theo or Summer is more obsessed with the ball.|
She hasn't had a chance to play since her surgery but she's making up for it now.
|Toquima loves to run and play but he doesn't care a thing about the balls. That's just as well.|
