some intense tug o war!

This was quite the match up! They went on like this for at least 5 minutes. And the part where Sawyer topples over at the end, he is still holding on! No body runs off with his tennis ball!

I will get some more photos up soon as I can!

In the Better Late Than Never category...

Angel Jacqui of Morgan River, aka "Shae", earned her AKC Canine Good Citizen title today. I guess it is never too late. Shae is from the KanexJazzee litter of 1999. She lives here with Rowyn.

Now I understand...

Why I wanted a red dog. He matches my dirt.

This works out pretty well, except for the part where I don't notice how dirty he is before he comes into the house.

Rowyn and the Rattlesnakes

In some places, April showers bring May flowers. Around here, it means the snakes are waking up. So I knew it was only a matter of time before Rowyn had his first snake encounter. Luckily, his self-preservation instincts over-rode his curiosity. This is what Rowyn thinks about snakes;

He met one of these snakes the evening before this video, but the snake slithered under the bridge before I got there.  Yes, there are 2 snakes there.
Why is the snake hiding it's head under the rock?
I just couldn't tell until I flipped that rock over.
Oh, thats why!
And saw this. Two Crotalus ruber, and judging by their behavior, the lighter colored one on top is a male and the darker one underneath a female. Maybe even the same pair I found in the yard last year. I dubbed them Romeo and Juliet. Yes, ill fated lovers. For after I finished with the pictures, I rather rudely interrupted their tryst and banished them from my yard, hopefully never to return. If you like snake pictures, I have more here.

The snakes were not harmed, and neither was Rowyn. Now he knows what they smell like and that its best to avoid them. If he barks his fool head off when he finds one, then I know where to find it. Better than finding them by accident.

A Visit to the Ranch

This past Monday, Stella, my mother and I went to Dusty's for a visit. Stella & Sybil actually played this time as opposed to last time where none of that happened.  I caught some funny pictures...

(I apologize for reposting this. When I was doing the Alligator Twins this blog post got deleted. I have no idea how.. )

The Alligators Twins

This past week of sun has been lovely, and the dogs loved it. We took all 4 pups into the back field for some play time, and this is what ensued between Stella and Riley.

We call this face by Stella "The exorcist"


Rye-guy's face here makes me crack up.

Another Alligator shot

Gnawing on Riley is one of Stella's favorite past times.
