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

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Things that go bump in the night ...NO BULL!!!

Last night all was quiet and very dark, when suddenly every dog within hearing distance sounds the alarm. Including Stumpy. Now Stumpy is not much of a barker, so I figure something must be up. I look out the window and see three shady characters out by the road, just beyond the visibility provided by the crime light.

Calling 911 out here in dirtville doesn't do a lot of good. The closest station is 50 miles away. I want to go out there and yell at them, tell them to get the @#$%^&* outta here! I'm about to pick up the phone. I know inside, with the doors locked, is the safest place. They start walking up the driveway.

Into the circle of light.

There were three of the biggest bulls, I've ever seen. I snapped a quick picture and went back inside. I didn't want them joining me on the deck.

Stumpy wanted to go all cattle-dog on them!

Wow. I wonder where they came from. Glad you aren't in a house painted red! That's pretty exciting though. I hope they find their way back home.

Good for Stumpy to bark only when there is real danger and to be ready to fight the forces of evil (or pot roast).

Oh, Stumpy. If only your mom had let you out there, you coulda rounded them up and had steak for dinner tonight. I tell ya, sometimes humans are Most Unreasonable.

Wow, that must have been exciting. We just don't understand why you didn't want to go out for a ride:)

Helen, We live on open range. The cattle and horses go where ever they want.

Tula, No sign of any BS in the yard.

Heartbeats, Holy cow?

Jan, I think she wanted to go play cattle-dog.

Mayzie, I should have thought of that!

OP Pack, I've watched to much bull-riding.

Well, I'm glad it was bulls and not some kind of creeps out there ready to break into your abode!! Although bulls are probably just as scary. I can't believe Stumpy doesn't bark much...Riley is always quick to sound the alarm at anything and everything. Good for Stumpy for trying to take care of you and her house!

My Mom would have been furry, furry scared but not me, I am the guard dog like Stumpy is!

Holy cow! Wowzer
Stumpy I can't believe mom didn't let woo at them. That's a bunch of bull.

PS- I'm glad mom decided not to take them in like she did Alfie. Whew

Pat Wahler said...

What an experience! I love the picture with the night-time glowing eyes. Spooky!


Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Tucker, It almost did, me!

Elyse, I was glad it was just the bulls, too!

Stella, Thank DOG for guard dogs!

Khyra, it's a great khoncept, I didn't want to test it, though!

Norwood, I figure it was about 5000 pounds of bull, at least!

Pat, I wish I could have gotten a better picture.

GOOD JOB, STUMPY!! It's very important to do the job you're bred to do - even in the middle of the night ;)

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Stumpy we are sure you could have rounded them up.. We know you are a cattle dog. Next time we will be right over to help...

Sounds like a very scary episode!
I am sure Stumpy was ready to make them go away!
Take care
Happy Saturday!
Kisses and hugs

Deborah said...

WOW, that was cool, at first I thought you had robbers~I'm glad your safe Stumpy because 50 miles is pretty far away!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Yepper Mom is home.. All kinds of wiggle waggles when she walked in the door...

Hello GSP & Stumpy! I've been off my blog awhile and the first thing I see when I'm makin' the rounds are those glowing green eyes and wicked horns.

Glad Stumpy's got the drive she was bred for and glad she didn't have to prove herself!

bbes tribe said...

Those are some big horns on them bulls!!! What glowing eyes Stumpy -- that start could have scared them!

debs daze said...

Glad we only have the occasional deer (and coyote, possibly) in our yard... Not sure what Molly & Moe would do with giant free roaming bulls in their yard.

Wow good thing they were only Bulls, but they could still cause a ruckus I suppose!
