Alternate Realities

cabana sitting in a fork in the road, which way to go, hmmmmIf you've been watching the current season of the TV show "Lost", you know all about alternate realities. Whereby, at a critical junction, something causes you to go down one path and not another, changing the trajectory of your life so you end up giving birth to a baby named Aaron in Los Angeles, rather than on a mysterious island in the South Seas. But either way, your baby is delivered by Kate and Jack.

an extremely large jackrabbit with ears up in mid-bound, crossing the path; in the distance you can see a man walking with two fluffy white samoyeds approaching our wayWe experienced the alternate realities phenomenon ourselves this morning. You may recall a couple posts back, that Cabana and I journeyed to Australia where Cabana was reprimanded for chasing a rabbit into a hole in Ayers Rock. Then today, will wonders never cease, we crossed paths with this sizable jackrabbit. It almost looks like a kangaroo--but this is our Californian reality, not our alternative Australian reality. (I know it looks like I photoshopped this rabbit into the picture--but it's really real.)

another shot of the jackrabbit running along the path(See, here's another shot of the rabbit so you'll believe me. Why are these photos blurry? I don't know.)

cabana gets to sniff one of the two samoyeds' face; they are beautiful, pure white, extremely fluffy creatures Cabana can always see these two white balls of fluff coming a mile away. How can you miss them? When Cabana was a puppy in training, these two samoyeds were the bane of our leash etiquette existence because Cabana would throw a conniption if she wasn't allowed to meet and greet them. Now, we're happy to exchange a few pleasantries and butt sniffs.

She doesn't pay too much attention to any of them--but she's not above snacking on their droppings. We've been walking around this lake since Cabana was 4 months old. Many of the regular walkers here know her by name and for the past year, have followed her growth and progress...or lack thereof. ;)

Mine love wild turkey droppings - shudder.

You asked on our blog about whether our snow was gone. Nope. Today's pictures were taken in Asheville, about 2500' feet lower than our house. We still have plenty of snow on the ground at home.

Though he isn't allowed to have any:)

I love that photo with Cabana in front of the fork, very nice!

Hi ya Cabana!!
Looks like a nice parkie! Bunnies?? :)
Yes, Sammie has been visiting... I LOVE having her here, but I think she really misses her parents and home, and I tend to bug her as I really want to play all the time! Hope we all can get together again soon!!!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose
