Seagull's Flight

I love capturing these seagulls when they are flying! There were so many of these in Ocean City and I couldn't get to much of them. I just keep taking photos when I am around them!  They are a joy to watch even when they are just walking along the shore or trying to find food.  
I will post more photos.  They are fun to feed too.  They will literally fly and get the food out of your hand lol.

Equipment For The Park

Park service equipment can be purchased online if there is a new park being built or if the equipment at a park needs to be replaced. When equipment is used on a regular basis, it can become dirty. This gives the park an unpleasant appearance. Workers can either take the time to clean the equipment, or replace it with updated items that will make the park beautiful. When you order equipment online, it's best to purchase in bulk to save money on the items.


Bike racks are an addition that will benefit those who like to ride to the park and then play. They can be placed in various locations around the park, and you can install several racks together to make one long rack. Many people like to grill when they go to the park. This could be for a birthday party or another special event. Charcoals can be provided and replaced as they are used, or you can inform those who want to use the cookers that they need to keep the grills clean after using them. Other pieces of equipment that can be used include picnic tables, benches and water fountains. Many of these items are made of materials that can be easily cleaned when they get dirty.

Chipmunk

My father-in-law  doesn't drive anymore as he  is almost completely blind.   I feel bad for him as he gets bored at his  own home when no one is visiting him.  He spends his day by watching the birds at his porch and  the chipmunk that always visit   his porch.  I had fun taking photos of the chipmunk when we visited Dad last Sunday.  Please enjoy what I have captured for you!
This last shot was taken  by my daughter.
I love watching  chipmunks.  We have one that lives in our backyard and he  always  runs around  when the dogs are not outside.

A Newbie's Guide To Getting A Dog

They say that a dog is a man’s best friend. Having had many dogs throughout my life, I can confirm that is true. Dogs offer companionship and can bring a lot of joy and happiness into your life. Puppies are cute and adorable, and as they grow into adult dogs, they become loyal and affectionate friends.

Are you thinking of getting a canine companion in your life soon? If you have never owned a dog before, there are a few things that you should know before you get one. This handy guide will help you to prepare for having a dog in your life.



Breed

One of the questions you will need to ask yourself is what breed of dog should you buy. There are thousands of breeds in the world, each with certain qualities or traits. Because getting a dog is a lifestyle choice, you need to choose a dog that will fit in with your lifestyle.

If you enjoy going out for long walks each day, an active dog like a Border Collie might be for you. Greyhounds have a sedentary lifestyle, believe it or not. They spend most of their time sleeping and have little stamina. That is despite the fact they can run up to 45 mph!

Some people prefer small dogs. Examples include the Bichon Frisé, Yorkshire Terrier and the French Bulldog. Others might prefer something more unusual, such as a Dachshund or Pharaoh Hound.

Rescue dogs

It’s no secret that there are millions of homeless hounds in the world that would love to be in a forever home.

Rescue dogs were often neglected by their previous owners. Some might even be “retired,” such as greyhounds. You should bear in mind that rescue dogs might have behavioural problems. That means you will need to be willing to help rehabilitate them.

There is no magic five-minute cure for dogs that have such problems. But if you are willing to put the time and effort in, your efforts will not go in vain. Organisations such as the RSPCA may ask you for a donation if you adopt a rescue dog.

Suitability


When you get a new dog, you have to be sure that both you and the dog will get on fine with each other. If a dog isn’t used to being in a home full of people or children, for example, it can get anxious.

Food

It is important that you buy the right food for your dog. There are many products available for all breeds and ages of dog on the WuffitMix website. If you adopt a greyhound, for example, you need to make sure their food doesn’t contain more than 21% protein.

As far as treats go, all dogs like having the occasional treat now and then! Owners can give their dogs treats as a reward for good behavior or during training.

Bones are a great treat for dogs, because it occupies their mind, and the bones help to keep their teeth clean.

Thanks for reading, and good luck with your new dog! You won’t regret your decision to get one!

Groundhog

My husband saw this groundhog crossing the road when we were  driving going to Maryland so we slowed down so wen't hit him because he was  crossing very slow.  I feel bad for those wild animals that get  killed on the road by motorists.
