Chance: A Cousin named Mable

Hiya!  It is me Chance the wonder blogging Border Collie.  My turn finally!

I got a new cousin.  That is what Aubrey said “Chancy you got a new cousin!”

Alrighty then!  I have never had a cousin before, but if Aubrey says I have one then I guess I do!

Mable and Chance

Mable is little, she is a German Shorthaired Pointer and she is eight weeks old and she just arrived to live next door with Jordan, Gavin and Aubrey.  She has floppy ears.  Far Side looked in them and checked out her mouth…she has teeth.

Mable

Mable doesn’t know about playing ball yet, she doesn’t know very much at all…Far Side says all puppies need a period of adjustment.  She has a little whiny voice but I bet that will change.  I am not sure why she is called a pointer, maybe she just points at balls instead of chasing them…it will be fun to see what she does with a ball when she gets older.

We now have three dogs in the neighborhood. Mable and Bailey the Beagle and me.  We don’t see Bailey much she has a special collar that keeps her in her own yard, she visits about every four months when her batteries get low. She barks sometimes, I bark sometimes …not often..and now with Mable we can have quite a chorus!

It was a great day yesterday, I got to go for two long walks and played ball several times.

  2. Your new cousin is quite a cutie. And you are so nice to try to play with her. Hopefully she likes to play ball when she gets older.

  7. No doubt, Mable will be chasing balls before the snow melts, so be patient and keep trying.

    Love that Bailey visits when the collar batteries are low! Do you visit her very often?

  11. I'm glad you got out and about! And had some nifty company too - you will have to train the little one on how to chase balls (mostly the one's you don't want to chase!)

  15. Mable is a cutie ~ actually I love her she reminds me of our belated Rudy who was a "wirehaired" pointer ~ she has that perfect marking on her face ~ a great family dog and oh yes great hunters if somebody in the family wants her to be :) Welcome to the neighborhood Mable!

  19. Your cousin is beautiful - - a definite bookend worthy of you! When you talked about having the barking chorus, it reminded me of "1,001 Dalmatians".

  23. Fuzzy and I love to bark...we sing songs with the neighbor dogs and with Hank our cousin and with the coyotes!!! We get to singing so much Dad doesn't like it. In the winter we don't sing as we are sleeping by MOM!
