I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

How rude. Walking in your yard and drinking your water. Who do they think they are? I say let Stumpy out to do her cattle dog skills on them. Get along little doggie.

Slobbers,
Mango

All kinds of interesting things happen to you when you reside in the country! My Mom used to and one day walked into her room only to see a huge horse face looking back at her! Be ready for anything out there in the boonies!

Kisses,
Stella

OMD, that is just hilarious.

Just passing through, eh? Hope they brought their own poop bags.

Mango, I'd love to let Stumpy play with the cattle. but I have this vision of her hanging from one of their horns.

Jan, there was a couple pretty big doggies!

Gizmo, Bart and Ruby, We live on what's called "open-range." Ranchers lease grazing rights from the government. If you don't want them in your yard, you have t fence them out.

Stella, Now that would have been a $1000.00 Funniest video!

OP Pack, At least it was daylight, this time...and no bulls!

Elyse and Riley, I KNOW how badly Stumpy would PO one of those mamas. the end result would not have been pretty!

Terrorzinhos, Stumpy was doing her best! She was NOT happy I didn't allow her outside!

They look a little lost. Maybe Stumpy should have rounded them all up and help them find their way home!! BOL!

Roo said...

Yeehaw! Bet you could lasso one of those heifers in one throw Stumpie! That was quite the parade of beef! I'm still droolin ;P

Waggin at ya,
Roo

You don't have to go online looking for interesting things. Just look out your window!

debs daze said...

Happy that they just kind of mosied along and didn't come too close- that might have put Stumpy over the edge!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

So much better than stoooopid khats!

Talk about free range cattle! Good grief. This is a good example of why mama finds conservatives so irritating; they're real big on the sanctity of THEIR property and have zero respect for anyone else's property - or rights. Does your house sit on land owned by the government? Who's liable if the free range cows damage your property - trample your vegetable garden or something?

Now you have a front row seat at the OK Carrel so hitch your wagon and git going. Love the sound of the doggie baking! Cheers!

mayziegal said...

Oh, Stumpy, I don't blame you for barking. They're stomping all over your yard! Cows are kinda rude, aren't they?

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

♥ Sallie said...

Look at the Moo cows!

And here I am stuck with a bunch of skeletons! LOL!

Kari, How would Baily and Mesa like theirs cooked?

Lorenza, I'm not sure she will ever forgive me!

24 Paws, They are one of the many small herds that make a circuit from well to well. I don't usually see them on my street, they might have been lost! (Not really, there's a well just up the road)

Roo,I don't think Stumpy was thinking dinner, she's more interested in action.


Dogsmom, I do, for hours I look out the window and about once every six months, something moves out there.

Debs daze, Oh! They were close... right below my window at one point, but i couldn't get a piture!

Khyra, well, we have khats, too. BIG ones! I just can't get a picture of one!

Jed and Abby, the property owner is liable. If you hit a cow crossing the street, you're liable and must pay the rancher for loss of income. My landlord owns her property, but we are surrounded by open range.

Sophie,That's Stumpy expressing her displeasure at not being allowed to go all cattledog on those trespassers!

Mayzie,Stumpy's great with the threats, isn't she?

Sallie! BOL! You and Alien come by anytime, we'll go find some cows and you and Stumpy can play cattle dog together!

Wizz, I love Arlo and remember seeing that video when my son was young ( MANY years ago) Thanks for the trip to wn memory lane!

Booker, it's just another piece of living in EBF dirtville. Mmostly, it's someting different that breaks up the day!

Wow - I know my girls would stare first, then catch a whiff...."is that dinner?!" BAH!!!
