I enjoy playing with Raphe (are there two animals any closer?). I look forward to our trips to the Catskills and Cape Cod when we go out and explore. But, these explorations have moments. Out one late afternoon on Cape Cod, I encountered a coyote, but escped. I spent the night and much of the next day on the top of a pine tree. My caretaker, so persistent, called that afternoon and I weakly answered. She grabbed the longest ladder she could find, not long enough. But she climbed the tree and placed me on her shoulder as she descended slowly through the maze of tight branches. It took a while to get all that sap out of my fur.
