I took my pets climbing on the Grack one beautiful April morning.
Is he looking up my skirt? Bad monkey!
I don't like where his hand is going!
I let the rhino follow me so he would be well protected.
Frisky's neck brace prevents her from looking up, so she has to belay by feel. She does a lot of things by feel these days.
Rhinos are stubborn
Like all rhinos, he wanted to be on top. "Let me lead, let me lead," he said. I said it was OK if the monkey soloed along beside him for support.
Hey, Monkey, no free rides!
Don't pull off his harness!
Rhinos are great for cleaning out the munge in Spring!
Help, he's slipping! Where is that darn monkey?
Catch him, Monkey!
If only you hadn't pulled off his harness!
Frisky, you'd better move!
Oh, the Carnage!
Frisky, are you OK?
Rhino, Rhino, can you hear me?
Frisky says a prayer, while I try to stimulate - I mean, awaken - our poor fallen friend.
Oh, no, Rhino is dead!
Frisky and I are inconsolable. What is monkey thinking?
Mourning a great loss
They say everyone mourns in his or her own way. I'm not sure if I agree with Monkey's way, but...
Hey! Stop that!
What a naughty monkey!
Wait, is Rhino moving?
Monkey, did you revive him?
Thank God for shock therapy
What goes around, comes around.
Turn-about is fair play! After all, you were the one who pulled off his harness!
We celebrate Rhino's Recovery in typical DOA fashion. Turns out to be a great day after all!
