Excited About Brown Beetle Season

Brown beetles are coming out in droves and the dogs are excited about it.  According to them (as I have no personal knowledge in this area), brown beetles are the best tasting bugs on this planet.  They are a true delicacy.

I enjoy watching the boys as they run around the yard, trying to catch the beetles.  It’s kind of like watching a bumper car race.  They will push against each other and run into each other, all in an attempt to eat a brown beetle.  I’ve even seen Blue stick his head underwater to fetch brown beetles that landed in the puppy pool.

No other bug is treated this way.  In fact, a black beetle can walk in front of the dogs and it will not illicit any reaction.  If my dogs could talk, they would say brown beetles are delicious and they are excited about brown beetle season.

Rescuing a Bee

Various flying insects land in the puppy pool and since they can’t get out, they drown.  If I find one that is still alive, I will rescue the poor soul.

The other day, I found a bee in the pool.  It was desperately trying to get out of the water.  I put my hand in the pool, slowly moved under the bee, and lifted it out of the water.  Then I took the bee to a safe place for it to dry off and rest, while it recovered from the ordeal.

This wasn’t my first bee rescue and if you are wondering do I ever get stung.  The answer is yes.  However, I don’t blame the bee and I continue to rescue them.

I am the Bee Rescuer.  🙂
