Was It something I Said?

Was it something I said? Or, more likely, did?

T has gone away again. She packed a suitcase on Tuesday night and left on Wednesday with her sister­. I wouldn’t normally think it was my doing but I’ve been a little distracted lately, by the gophers that seem to everywhere around the farm, and the coyotes that have been coming close. And, when I’m distracted, I don’t always listen very well. Okay. When I’m distracted, I don’t listen at all. It’s like my ears just stop working.06-Chico-Sa-us-1One day recently, during a walk in the hay field, I ran off after a coyote. Apparently, T heard sounds that she thought were me calling for help and she came running. By the time I found my way back to her she dropped to the ground and burst into tears. I’m not sure if she was happy or sad or just out of breath but I sure got a big hug.

My ears work much better in a dog park.

So anyway, she left on Wednesday and then yesterday was her birthday, and I didn’t even get to tell her Happy Birthday. I hope she knew I was thinking about her … and missing her. And, because I was missing her, I got looking through some photos. So this Foto Fur-iday, the theme is “Me and T”.

She loves to do selfies with me.

After a bath, she gives me extra towelling because she knows how much I like it.

She’s always there with a hug, even when we’re not posing for a photo.

And sometimes we just hang out in the same space.

She takes me places, like to the Strathmore UFA in this picture…

And horseback riding in this one.

Even though I know I’m too big, she lets me sit on her lap…

No matter the weather.

And even at times when she prefers her solitude, she still lets me be close.

I hope she comes home soon. I promise to be good. Well … as good as I can with these faulty ears.

Foto Fur-iday – One Month Home

We’ve been home from our winter travels a full month now, and T is regularly asked if we (Logan and I) seem happy to be home. Well, I’ll let the following photos answer that question …

If not, I have more photos.

Foto Fur-iday – Winter Fun

There’s a chill in the air and the first of the white stuff has hit the ground (although it’s all gone again now). With the weather forecast looking quite friendly for the next nine days, it looks like we’re going to give the snow a miss this year, so we thought we’d share a few of our favourite winter adventures from last year.

There wasn’t a lot of snow last year which made for easy winter walks

I love the snow. Maybe we can convince T and Nollind to spend some mountain time in northern Arizona
