Ranch Life

We told you earlier this week that we were visiting the ranch above our house.  They obviously knew we were coming because as we entered the ranch, there was a greeting committee.

Trust us when we say that these were very big and, well, smelly dogs.  By the way, notice everyone in the sideview mirror getting a close-up view?

Kodiak thought it was so cool that he kept a look out for other visitors as we drove through.

Sadly, we think Kodiak spent way too much time studying those cows.  Look what we caught him doing later that day:

    How wonderful! I would love to have some of those cows where I live. They’re simply my favorites!

    Oh no, grass is really tasty! I regularly sample the new plants in my garden, just to be sure.

    WOW! You could be that close to livestock with the windows down and not have a dog jumping out of the car? We would have had an escapee for sure…then the next thing all the cows would be packed up against our car we wouldn’t be able to move.

    I met some guys like that at the park one day. I said, “Woo,” to them, just to be friendly and they said, “Moo.” “Moo”? What the…
    Crazy accents!

    Were the dogs going “Moo!!!!” while looking out the window? Or is that just a people thing?

    Look at those BIG DOGS – you just have to share with us, Kodiak, how the cowpie tasted.

    Woos, the OP Pack

    My goodness, huge dogs in your territory. And, Kodiak wants to join them! Great idea Kodiak, except that your tummy might not feel very good if you eat as much grass as they do.

  15. Ozzie on September 10, 2009 at 8:16 am

    Those are some BIGGGGG gods. My goodness. And they live that close to you? How did their bark sound?

    How very nice of the cowdogs to meet you at the entrance!

    Was the cow pie tasty? I’ve never tried cow pie. I wonder if it’s as good as banana pie?

January 31, 2017 |

For Siberian Huskies, snow is a very serious business (and our reactions to the lack of snow is proof). Thus, we need to share our serious snow faces.
