The Good - Saturday was good. Juan and I went on a beautiful hike at Castle Rock Park. We had never been there before so it was new for both of us. The park is in the Santa Cruz Mountains off of Highway 9. I took some amazing pictures of rock formations, water falls, views from the ridge. The best photo, however, was of a hawk, full wing span as he flew over our heads. I was so happy when I saw the photo! I don't have it loaded on this computer, but I can post a link of it here from my Facebook page. Check it out, gorgeous right?

"WHAT?" Where is Nico? Sure enough, he was gone. He must have gotten out while Alex was mowing the lawn. When Alex finished his shower I told him what Vincent said and asked him to go get the dog.
About 10 minutes later Alex calls me and asks me to come down the street. "What happened?" I asked automatically thinking the worst. "Did he get hit by a car?"
"No," Alex said. "Just please come down here."
