Sanctuary for doggies and bunnies alike.
I spent a week in the Arizona desert, near Tucson, in a little lofted casita. It had two of my favorite things, a fireplace and a spiral staircase… both lead to paradise. Outside, the desert floor provided all the dry kindling needed for a good sustained fire, a great comfort to the coyotes roaming about after dark. We heard them each night, sometimes a few howls, but other nights the blood lust cacophony of the beasts awakened primal memories of nightmares that once made our ancestors fear the dark. But wasn’t afraid in this cozy abode with fuzzy friends, and dry wine, no sir.
