Nature didn't stand still while I've been on vacation.
In the past two weeks, the cheatgrass has gone from green and soft to cured with spear-like seedheads that cling to socks and fur.
I just brushed dozens of cheat seeds out of my dog's fur after a training run.
The season has come to stuff cotton in a hunting dog's ear's before going afield. I could buy a yacht with the money I've spent over the years to have veterinarians extract cheatgrass seeds from deep inside my dogs' ears.
