Saturday’s Critters – Home and Away

First up our puppy Kodi and cat Lizzy. They love to play and seem to enjoy each others company. Kodi is getting bigger and stronger versus Lizzy getting better at wrestling. She has developed a takedown that she uses on him sometimes. It is fun watching them.

Kodi is getting bigger and stronger all the time. We start him at puppy school in a couple weeks. We all know that they should rename dog school as owner school right?

Kodi is still very small. The smallest dog we have ever had. We found out that we can just park him in a laundry basket if we need to confine him a short while and his crate is not available.

Still got my trailcam going in the backyard. I think this is a downy woodpecker.

This looks like a squirrel but cannot be a squirrel because it is feeding from a squirrelproof bird feeder.

We are getting lots of robins scratching around for food under the feeders.

And we get rabbits at night.


I captured a red shouldered hawk on our neighbors roof. They like rabbits. I’ve seen them this year land in our front yard and walk into the hedges and come out with baby rabbits and mice. Hawks have to eat to I guess.

I saw a goose in the parking lot earlier this week. It proceeded to wander on the main avenue nearby and somehow did not get run over.


I went on a hike the other day and spotted this pair of geese. I think they must be nesting or something because they didn’t move much and were giving me the stinkeye from clear across the pond.


And a fuzzy photo of a mallard paddling around the same pond.


The same hike, I came across robins. This one blended into the tree it was perched on.


This one was on the ground scratching around.

That’s a wrap this week!! I’m linking with Eileen’s Saturday’s Critters. Check it out!

    Cute video of Kodi and Lizzie playing, I am glad they are friends. Love all your birds, neat sighting of the hawk. The Robins seem plentiful this spring. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend. PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

    Kodi is very cute! My son’s family had a pomeranian and he stayed tiny and lived to be almost 18 years old! We aren’t seeing many geese this winter, I heard the bird flu has been terrible in Colorado .

    Kodi and Lizzy are so cute! Kodi is small, how much does he weigh? My dog is small too, she’s 9 lbs.

    I have a birdfeeder pole with a baffle on it so that squirrels can’t get to the food from the top or bottom.

    So many great photos, thanks for sharing all the different critters!

    That’s quite a variety of animals for the week. I love the Kodi and Lizzie videos! Lizzie doesn’t take any crap from the little guy.

    Love Kody’s playpen — and delight in how your two pets get along. Have fun at ‘owner school’! (you’re definitely right about that change!). You are becoming quite the birder with help of your trail cam and your walks — loved the pictures.
