The sky is orange! And I found a BALL!

Hi friends, Ojo here!

We had a very nice Walk today! It was a bit cloudy, so it was warm-but-not-too-hot. The grass was cool on my belly. AND I found this BALL in the grass!

Also the sun was ORANGE! This made everything extra-nice-looking! It was very pretty today!


Wait - those aren't clouds? That's SMOKE??? Wait - the sun isn't really orange, it's coloured because there's SMOKE???

Dear friends, it has been very hot and very dry. There are many trees and forests burning. Please send good wishes for all the trees and creatures and humans and Dogs that live in and around these forests. 

We are very lucky that there are no big fires near us. So far the smoke is staying very high and our air is still very good. Even I can't smell the smoke! 

I am very grateful that I can be outside playing with Found-Ball.

Stay safe, everyone!

Hi, Ojo, what an exciting adventure, leading to Found Ball. We has smoke last week, all the way across the continent from the west coast fires. The consequences are sad, just like you said. All you three, and everyone out there, stay safe! /Fay, the cardis 2 and the New(ish)Spoo

There is nothing better than finding a free ball.

Hi Ojo,
So pleased you had a nice walk and found a ball! But we're worried about the forest fires and all the folk in their path. We know what a problem these dry summers are in your part of the world, and hope you stay safe and your air continues to smell good.
Toodle pip!

How great that you found a ball on your walk. We are keeping our paws crossed for everyone and everything effected by those fires.

We had a smoky orange sun a few weeks ago. We hope the rain comes and you stay safe. That is a very nice ball you found. Cousin Lee and handsome Phod

We had some days when the sun looked like a red tennis ball, and we could almost smell the smoke, and we are way over on the other side of the continent in WNY! We sure hope those fires go out real soon.

Oh, and you're pretty lucky to find a tennis ball way out in a field! Tennis balls can be very sneaky about hiding in places you'd never expect. Have fun!

We are WAY far away from the fires but our sunrises are orange too. And the sky has been hazy for days. Mom keeps getting a headache, and the weather babblers say it is due to all that smoke floating across the skies. We hope the fires go out soon, and all the people in their line will be OK.

Finding a ball is very intoxicating.
