You Made Us Love You

With those big brown eyes…..the way your eyebrows go back and forth between Tom and I when you know we are talking about you….the way you hunch down and try to and sneak by when you just finish stealing the cat’s food.You could bite Spooky’s head off when she tries to ride you……

You learned not to chase the cows, you would die before you peed in the house. You did not make a peep when I accidentally shut you in the pantry……Sky, you are too much. I could go on and on, but I need to go fill up the kitty food bowl….again!

Will Pose for Food

this is going to coast you.....

Sky was very patient while I painted her sitting in front of the bay in Rockport. She finally said “Just take a picture” Well we did take about 500 with the two Canons and of-course video with the Flip camera from the minute that we left the ranch until we stopped at Dairy Queen for vanilla ice cream!!!!!

Dog Days of Winter

not sure we want to go......

Tina, Dena, BV, the princess, Macaroni and the Labs, Bear and Lil Yellow came out yesterday for a fun photo shoot. It was overcast and a little chilly, but we warmed up fast.

Lil yeller has second thoughts....

Getting through the gate where the ponies are was a little intimidating.

good bye cruel world....

It took a little while to get over the problem of sticker burrs and piles of fresh manure. Good rolling stuff!

follow me, kids

We took the long way around the field to the tank. Yeller had already had a confrontation with Mesquite Joe and we were not anxious to repeat the trama.

Carry me, Mama!

The princess, Mac had not been here since she was a baby. She is STILL a baby!

I like the view from here, Mac says.

Mac’s little legs got tired and she needed a break.

Ahhhh. This is the life!

By the time we reached the tank, Mac was ready to play

this is what you need to do

A little bossy sometimes…..

Let me tell you a little secret

Mac decided the splashing looked like too much fun!We all documented their every move.

If only I had a Canon

BV took some great macro shots that are posted on flick

We all had to protect our cameras from the splash zone.Yeller could do this all dayBear got tired of being dunked under waterAfter swallowing the brackish water and eating a little horse poop, he took a break to eat some grass

tummy not feel so good

It was all and all, a great adventure and they slept like babies all the way home. We can’t wait to do it again!

Rainy Days and Sundays

Hey people, my name is Sky. I’ve been cooped up all week because of the rain here in Tejas. When I do go outside I track in loads of sand and oak pollen. I hear it is sunny in Chicago. I am really in the mood for some good Chicago pizza and maybe a hotdog. When I’m not feeling sorry for myself, I do have quite a nice life on the ranch…..if you are bored like me, read about it HERE.

What’s That SMELL?

During the night I kept getting an unpleasant whiff of something . Tom had opened a new bottle of cologne earlier  and  I was thinking maybe it wasn’t working  for me, but when Sky came to give me a morning kiss, I finally realized what it was……

 

Hope this works.....

Hope this works.....

 

This is embarrassing!

This is embarrassing!

The ketchup bath worked great to get rid of the skunk smell on her, but the house still reeks…..
