Big Dog Friday

Does everyone see who we see?

Kodiak sure sees our neighbors.

Yep, our big dog neighbors were out in force.

We love seeing the equine gang.

They are all so majestic.

Nothing like an outdoor snack on a beautiful spring day.

The big dogs are such magnificient animals.

    In NC we had a neighbor with horses and we owned a mini-schnauzer who used to chase them, barking, and they ran from her. We had some serious chats with her about this and had to keep her from the pasture, but it was fun while she could! She was sure they were big dogs.

    Cheers,

    This post makes me miss the big dogs that I grew up with! I’m content with the smaller dogs now, but those big dogs are a whole different sort of adventure.

    Kodiak, you weren’t distracting the Hu-Dad from driving to take your picture, were you?

    Those big dogs are just beautiful and they all look like they are very well cared for. Bet The Herd would love to have a chance to run with them.

    THOSE big dogs are beautiful and nice. We saw some cow dogs last weeekend that made gross noises and tried to lick me! Ick! AND the humans would not even let us roll in the pasture!

    Check out Friday’s post…we are fast approaching Herd status…or at least platoon.

    Wow and we thought we were big dogs!

    Those ARE some big dog neighbors! How cool to get to see them, though. My high school backed up to a horse stable (the two were not affiliated) and sometimes the coaches would have to round up some horses that got out on the baseball field! It seemed like it happened 3 or 4 times each school year!

      Wow – that puts new meaning to “sliding” to base if you step in the wrong thing.

    Looks good with all the green starting to come out! Daisy would like to meet the big dogs too.

    Oooh. Grass and big dogs. Does it get any better? 🙂

    I wonder why those guys are allowed to eat grass! I always get told “nononoDavyno”! Do they get tummy aches?

    Wonderful photos – those horses are gorgeous!

  14. Sam on April 22, 2011 at 11:19 am

    Oh, how pretty! That is my dream – to one day be able to turn my horses out on pasture. How content they all look!

    I would love to find a field of horses like that, they’re beautiful.

    How beautiful. We love the white and brown spotted big dog!

    Drools and licks,

The Red Balloon (Except Silver)

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
