I could hardly believe my eyes Sunday morning when in my pond I saw my dog, Derby, swimming round and round trying to catch two frisky OTTERS! I live near a creek but have never seen otters on the creek and didn't in my wildest dreams expect them in my own pond. They frolicked and taunted my dog all day. This morning I've not seen any sign of them so I think they made their way back to the creek. Two weeks ago we got several doses of heavy rain which makes all the little streams connect and my guess is that they made their way up the snaking water and ended up visiting me. What a treat. They are such playful creatures!
