Loons make dog loonie
The dog went nuts at home this morning when he heard the loons calling. Usually he ignores the noisy birds and waterfowl–ducks, geese, swans, the occasional heron, and lots of gulls. But when he heard the loons on his early morning walk, his head snapped up and then he ran up and down the shore looking out into Lake Ontario for them. Perhaps he thought that if he could only find them he’d be at the cottage.
It’s not unusual for us to hear the occasional loon at this time of year as they pass through our lakeside neighbourhood on their way north. Maybe next time our hound hears them, he really will be at the cottage.
