The Computer and Cowdogs

Sammy here. Thanks to me, you almost didn't get this post. I decided to jump off of the sofa and take the laptop computer with me. Mom doesn't get really mad at me very often but I think this was one of those times. Fortunately, after a reboot, the computer works just fine. I think facing that snake was less scary then facing Mom when I've done something really bad.

We went to the vet last Friday for a check up and to let them take blood to test. Well the exam was okay but the vet called Mom today and the blood clotted so they couldn't test it for a platelet count. That means they need more blood so Roxie and I have to go back tomorrow. I would rather be here to protect the house and nap on my bed.

Now, on to the original reason we were posting. Those pesky cowdogs have been getting bolder. We think they feel brave because there is a fence between them and us.

First Roxie told them they were too close to the yard.



They didn't seem to be listening to her so I added my comments.



Andy is just a kid so when he came over to talk to them, we didn't expect him to have much luck chasing them away.



A little later, there were some other cowdogs who dared to get too close to the yard.



It took all three of us to chase them off.



After all of that work, we decided to settle down for a nap on the sofa. You already know what happened after that.

Oh no! I can understand why Mum got mad ... TBU would go through the roof if I did that to his laptop!

I think you might have barked at the cowdogs too much and effected your balance.

Cheers

I don't know how she could get mad at you with that cute face.

Those cowdogs have some nerve to just hang around there like they own the place.

Good job on the cowdogs.

We have a new enemy...a gray squirrel keeps getting into Mom's purple petunias on the planter on the deck. We stand at the sliding door and bark at him/her and he/she ignores us. We tried to talk Mom into opening the door and letting us take care of business but she said something crazy like the squirrel could be rabid...it doesn't have a rabbit suit on and doesn't look like a rabbit...we think Mom needs a vacation...

Dachsie hugs,

Sammy!

I've done the same thing... Taking the laptop with me, that is... I've done it a few times, really. But luckily it didn't break yet! I hope your human mom forgave you!

Why, the nerve of those fat cows! How dare they get close to YOUR yard?! You all had better teach them a lesson.

Laptops go in laps which is where dachsies belong so they deserve to get broken.

I don't know why my Mom smiles so big when she sees pictures of you three fending off evil cowdogs that are obviously intent on taking over your property, but she does. She wants to know if you ever have to bark at horsedogs? Boy would I love to join you in some of that barking .....

More blood?? Sure it does not sound fun! I hope everything will be ok!
What were thinking those cows?? Good job letting them know about your feelings!
Kisses and hugs

Love ya...Mona & the Mommy too!!

Be careful around the computer! If it breaks, how would we know what you're up to? Those cowdogs aren't too bright. you guys should dig a tunner under the fence and when they come next time one of you can distract them by yelling at them and the other 2 can go through the tunnel and chase them. I bet that would show them that you're tuff!
Good luck!

Hello There.
I have fun reading your blog.
Let me just share something.
My friend told me about this mini course in training a Miniature Pinscher, and it was great!

I highly recommend this mini course training.
