This little dog has been such a wonderful addition to our family. Honestly, he's just the perfect dog for us.
And he's so vocal! Not as in barking vocal, he only barks when someone other than DH or I drive up, which is exactly what we want him to do, but he talks to us. Even our girl, said, "WHAT IS THAT?" Why, it's Skeet language of course.
He and I head out the door by 6 a.m. for our daily trot 6 days a week and he lets me know if we're running late. He really is an outside dog, but he eats inside and he gets to stay in for a little then and he about wiggles out of his skin when we let him in in the mornings.
A few weeks ago he met a badger and I wished like anything that I had my camera so I started carrying it.
Skeet lets me know when something interesting pops up:
The lighting is odd in this photo but the sun was just up and this deer had walked into a mesquite bush and I had just a nano second to take the shot because I didn't want to spook her. There was just a tiny spot where I could catch a shot of her:
And then, wouldn't you know, I didn't grab my camera yesterday and I could have really used it, but we had over 60% humidity and in this dry, arid country, that's rare. And even though ya'll may think I'm tough, I'm not. Just plant me in humidity and watch me wilt. So, I was already reluctant to head out and just didn't feel like hauling my big camera along so all I got was crummy, antique cell phone shots, but I'm glad I at least have these.
We have a lot of antelope here and they are fun to watch.
Skeet is crazy about them and starts to shake when he sees them when we're making feed runs - which thankfully we were able to stop making May 1. Yesterday there were a couple on our route and Skeet sprinted after them
They made a big circle and when they came back around, the antelope was chasing Skeet.
This went on for at least 5 minutes. They were actually playing with each other and it was a hoot
This is dirt road entertainment at it's finest.
