Thank you for all the name suggestions!  We've named her Hazel.

When Hazel was with her litter mates, she was described as shy and would often go lay down away from her siblings.  Since she's been in our house, there have been no signs of her being shy.   She is curious about everything around her and doesn't seem to be afraid of anything.

Hazel knows her name, comes when we call her, chases the tennis ball and brings it back, goes to the back door when she needs to go "potty" and sits to get a treat.

Dottie and Hazel are getting to know each other and getting closer every day.

Spring must be coming...

...the Resurrection Lilies are coming up!  I've been hearing robins for several weeks, but I haven't actually seen them yet.

It was beautiful here on Saturday so we went for a drive.  We saw HUGE flocks of migrating birds in the sky.  I have never seen so many birds.  Even as we drove under one flock, ahead of us there would be another and another and another.  They looked like some kind of duck, but they were so high in the sky it was hard to tell for sure.  We saw one flock coming down in a distant field.  There had to have been thousands of birds landing in that field and the large white birds made the field look like it was covered in deep snow.  

Since we were driving on the interstate, we couldn't pull over to take photos.  I searched the internet when we got home and discovered that we saw migrating Snow Geese.

Here's a great video I found on Snow Geese migration.  It was awesome seeing a small part of the Snow Geese migration!

Hope your week is going well
Be Safe
