Our Trip - Part 2

Once we were up and running for the day, Mom and Aunt Bec fed us. Aunt Bec made coffee for herself and tea for Mom and then they sat outside to watch the sunrise and watch us chase shadows. The cowdogs were all around us so we had to be vigilant.

We spotted one trying to get to us from the front gate. We chased her off.

Because we were surrounded, we posted sentries at the corners to keep a lookout for other intruders. Jake is stretching to get a little better look around.

Roxie is on the patrol.

Later on Roxie and Maggie checked out the fence line together. They told us they would let us know if they found way to escape to the field again.

In between all of this, we had to check on Mom and Aunt Bec to make sure they had plenty of opportunities to pet us and give us treats. It was a busy day. We were ready for the sun to set so we could get some sleep.

(This is a pretty sunset from an earlier visit. The sky was so clear this time, Mom couldn't get any pictures with color so she's taking poetic license with this one.)

Tomorrow we will tell you about our last day there and the fun things we did. Aunt Bec took a video with Mom's camera but didn't turn it off soon enough. If Mom can figure out a way to edit it and cut the end off ... we will have our first video for you!

You all sure showed those cowdogs who is boss, didn't you? It must have been exhausting doing all that guard work all weekend.
Big Wags,

You guys are excellent guard dogs! Just like a military unit!

Good thing you covered all your posts and corners--excellent work. Even better that you got some pets and treats in-between. That's often a very good way to lull the cowdogs into thinking you've let down your guard.

Happy Thanksgiving Dachsies

Great job, you guys! I didn't see one single cowdog in the pictures so you must have scared them all off. Maybe we should call you the mini-army of five, ha ha ha.

That picture of all of you at the gate is cool! But the picture of Roxie on the bridge is AWESOME! You look really pretty, Rox = and like a great watch-puppy!
