I know most of us dog folk dread the time change at this time of year, because we have less daylight in evening hours to do whatever it is we do with our dogs once we escape from work. But this year, I have been counting down the days, because with the extended Savings Time, it has been pitch dark for our morning walk at 6:30. I have to be at work by 8, so 6:30 is the only time in my morning schedule for morning walkies. And the bayou, while surrounded by suburban sprawl, does have a lot of wild life. Birds, toads and turtles are a pleasure. Raccoons, nutria, opossums and specifically skunks, are not creatures that I want to meet at o' dark of the morning with my dogs in tow. This last week has been kind of pretty because of the waning full moon, but still, I'm glad the time shift has finally arrived.
