What is happiness?

coffeebear tooThis morning as I walked Boza, I saw happiness….No! Not just the coffee I was sipping…

I am positive that in doggy heaven, dogs get to chase kitties all day and all night. There is simply just not anything in the whole world that is more important, than kitty chasing….At least to Boza…

Boza is sleeping soundly right now, but before he went back to bed this morning, he got to chase a cat all over the lower fields and after about an hour of running, jumping, chasing and tracking. Boza wore out, the cat ended up on the roof of a barn and Boza was satisfied that he ran the scourge of the known world off and saved the day. For to Boza kitties are the ultimate dream. Especially cats that run. If they stand and fight, Boza decides life has better things to do. Smart dog…

I sat on my bench in the lower field and let Boza run and watched the cat stay one step ahead of him the whole time. cats are smart and this cat knows Boza, but Boza does not know he is part of the game. Boza just knows that he has to chase this cat and send it away. With that simplistic thought going, Boza is always successful and in the cats eyes, it is always successful…

That is a win win situation and makes the world happy…

I was happy, for if Boza is happy, my world is perfect. Just as if Svetochka is happy, my world is more than perfect…

A white tailed eagle….is happiness…

The Heron are scared to death of this eagle. Yes first image is of the huge Heron bird and mamma eagle is a behemoth, for a Heron is one big bird and as you can see in the slightly blurry image, she looks like a crow against a sparrow. This female eagle is one monster and 10 Heron’s had a darn heart attack as she swooped and played with their minds…

White Tailed Eagle: Steller’s sea eagle? 99% sure:

Steller’s sea eagle (Haliaeetus pelagicus)[2] is a large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae found in coastal northeastern Asia and mainly preys on fish and water birds. On average, it is the heaviest eagle in the world, at about 5 to 9 kg (11 to 20 lb), but may be below the harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja) and Philippine eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi) in some standard measurements.[3] This bird is named after the German naturalist Georg Wilhelm Steller.[4]

Simply put, this girl is a scary monster and I have been keeping an eye on it when she is out and about. Lets hope she eats lots of fish… 🙁 – For we all look small next to her… Yes it is a girl! How do I know? She is a mean Russian woman, that is how I know… 😉 And I see she has a mate and he is smaller. And he does irritate her at all. He has a white tail also…

By the way! A mean Russian woman is happiness, I know that too!

This eagle is rare this far North, but we have the lakes to feed her and I am glad. The Heron’s are not glad, but I am…

That is happiness, for Boza got to chase a kitty and I got to watch the eagles and you get to see our rose blooming…
