We have the most lovable neighbors! They love to sit on our back stoop and wait for our crew to come out to play, and when they do, all heck breaks loose. It's a mad, joyful, fun time of chaos, barks, howls and dog tag; just an all around yappy fun time. You cannot be around this crew and not laugh at their antics. Let me introduce you to them:
Pop, on the left, is the old soul. He seems to be the one that is the level headed one of the two brothers. Skip, on the right, is the goofy kid brother that is always looking for a way to irritate Pop, and he is the lazier one of the two. On our afternoon walks, he usually peeks his head out of the shop to check us out, then turns around and hops back on the couch and takes a snooze with the farm equipment. Silly Pup.
They meet at the post first thing in the morning; business always comes first, then it's off to the races. It's tag, sniff, run, or chase: whatever the mood strikes.
Yes, Ace, we see you. He always makes sure that I am close by.
As the corn grows, they will continue their play in and out of the stalks. The height of the corn does not stop them from their games of chase...it just becomes much more fun!
And then we have Miss McKenzie who isn't impressed with the guys. She would rather sniff out the smells of the night. She tries to guess what animals passed by last evening...she will spend all morning in this position if we let her.
She and I are currently in a despute: she ate all my strawberries in my little strawberry patch last evening. When I caught her, she looked at me and licked her lips...what's a Basset Mom to do?
There is never a dull moment on the Farm! We count our blessings each and every day.
