It's that time of year...
Ki-Anne was barking her head off!
The discovery was almost more excitement
than fifteen-year-old Andrew could handle.
Can you see the enthusiasm?
Jake was a little more interested.
The dogs were extremely interested.
Ki invited others to join her in the great spider hunt.
Without thinking and with much regret,
I became an accomplice to tarantula homicide.
Ki and Lil went into action. Note poor spider in lower right.
The gang joined in.
There were many firsts tonight...
I've never seen a tarantula on a power pole.
I've never purposely caused one's death.
I've never seen a dog attack one,
but Ki, unfortunately, is a very unique dog.
she waded in.
The smell of one usually repels a dog,
but not my Ki.
Now, I am feeling totally guilty.
I have asked the spider's forgiveness.
I'm not sure I can forgive myself.
