Hey, thank you. : )
I don't like listening to that bell, and I am sure she doesn't either, but it's in her best interest. Not only does it warn big and little critters that we are coming, but it helps me keep track of where she is.
As for the bubbles, it's an old forestry road where they usually end up as stream beds. With all the fresh leaves, I'm guessing there are a lot of air pockets within them and the flowing water.
Thanks again : )
