The Other Herd in Our Field

Cheese and Frankie

While we were all suffering through being housebound with Isaac’s rains . . .


That other Herd was making itself comfortable in our field.

Other Herd 2

We will have to do something about them, after the belly and ear scratches stop.

    Wow…my Huskies would be all over that!!!

    Evil! Pure evil!

    Me’n Ice would NEVER allow a herd like that to take up residence in OUR back yard!

    We’d just bark a lot. Because any actual chasing would require us to remove ourselves from the Hands That Give Scratchies. And sometimes it’s just not worth it to give up those scratchies and belly rubs! 😉

    That would not be tolerated in our yard, either!

    Hope you get rid of those squatters soon!

    Are those turkeys? I bet they are fun to watch. Do they chase after the dogs?
