We picked up the scent of Mac closer to home and followed it to a fence where we couldn’t get permission to continue. Then we tried to get the scent in two more locations. One was no scent. The other location was positive for scent, but we hit private property again after a block. If it was just an open field, we would have continued. This was someone’s manicured lawn. I knocked on the door, but no answer. I gave the dog’s owner our information, saying where we thought Mac had Not been, and where he had been, so they could follow up.
While we were out searching, we saw an old boxer. He looked a little lost, so I got his picture, and we followed him for a while. Eventually, he went past a yard, and the man in the yard said it was his dog, Banner. “He’s old, and he’s an asshole. He’ll come back soon.”
On the way home, I stopped on the causeway in Purdy to check the sky. I looked around and found a nice cloud to photograph. I was just about to leave when I looked up and saw an amazing cloud, so intricate and interesting. Traffic was whizzing by, and perhaps no one was aware of the magic above them. I almost missed it, and I was actively looking for good clouds. It was huge. It wouldn’t all fit in my camera’s field of view. I took pictures of the main body of it. I’m very glad I stopped to check for good clouds.
