Heading home from a weekend at Lake Berryessa, I stopped at the WPA Rock Garden for a short walk. The praying mantises are getting really big now as they head into the season when they’ll start laying their eggs… When I got back to the house Sergeant Margie was going crazy, barking and barking. When I sat down, he whined and whimpered and snuggled against me… It’s so nice when your dog is so happy to see you home again. **smiley face** He wouldn’t let me out of his sight for the rest of the morning. Hah!
