Baby Cowdogs

In our previous post, we told you we would show you pictures of baby cowdogs. But first, did anybody find the black cowdog in the picture? We thought she did a really good job of hiding!

Here are the two baby cowdogs that we saw every day. There might have been other ones but we didn't see them ... especially on the day we were taking pictures.



This little guy couldn't decide what he thought of Mom's car. Whenever the farmer comes over, he brings food. We didn't bring any food for him.



(In case you noticed the background, that is the family cemetery. It was established in 1834 and lots of Mom's and Aunt Bec's and Uncle John's and Aunt Terry's and Uncle Jim's and Aunt Sue's and Grandpa's relatives are buried there. The cemetery was a major reason why Uncle John, Aunt Bec and Mom wanted to buy the land from Grandpa's cousin if she ever decided to sell it ... which she did!)

This little one decided to face off Mom when she was driving down the road. Mom took the picture and then drove around him because he never did move out of the way. By the way, that is our land behind him and to the right.



We showed some pictures once of the food the cows get. Army of Four pointed out that they were giant shredded wheat. We found the field where they grow the giant shredded wheat!



We don't tell as good of stories as Army of Four, but we hope you liked the pictures!

We have cow dogs. I often go to the fence and do rub noses with them.

I do rub noses with donkey dogs and horse dogs too. It is nice. You might want to try it with the baby cow dogs, although you might have to stand on tippy paws.

Do you think if the mama cow squirted milk on the shredded wheat you would be able to eat it? Are there any old dogs buried in the family plot?

JustMeCopper said...

Wow, a field that grows your own cereal AND you get to bark as much as you want to? Can you tell me where you live so I move in with you now?

My Mom told me to ask how many acres is it and will you and Mom build a house out there anytime soon?

My Mom told me a funny story. One time when she was a teenager she went to visit a farm with a girl friend. It was the girlfriend's grandparent's farm and they had pigs and cows and terrible horseflies that bit my mother till she got sick. My teenage mother saw the baby pigs they had and wanted to hold them but they said "No, yoy silly city girl, you don't HOLD baby pigs!" Then, one morning she woke up in the feather bed to a cowdog scratching her head in a bush right outside her window and saying MooOOO! It was quite an experiece, the country.
