Hiya! It is me Chance the most handsome Border Collie in all of Minnesota.
The mail goes everyday. They told me it is not there on Sunday but a little creative whinning and a bark here or there convinces them that a walk to the mailbox is well worth it EVERY day of the week. We walk way beyond the mail box now. (They are making progress!)
Most of the time Far Side goes along. Far Guy and I are allowed to go by ourselves…but mostly she goes along to supervise. She has Yak Tracks now…courtesy of her baby brother who wants to keep her butt off the ice and out of the snowbanks.
She makes funny tracks now.
Wednesday morning over on the snowmobile trail. The snow is getting a crust on it so I can walk where ever I want.
Most of the time I wear my red harness, but I have been known to run up the stairs without it on. I do not come downstairs without it on and someone guiding me down the stairs…again…I whine if I want to come down when they leave me on the landing all alone and lonely.
The warm weather has brought the skunks out and Far Side is certain that they can walk on top of the snow too…so she is extra careful at night…she goes out first and barks to scare everything away before I am allowed outside. She doesn’t care if that is weird.
I am feeling pretty good for an old guy and as long as I am not allowed to scarf up bird seed outside or anything but “Far Side approved” food I don’t vomit or have diarrhea. Yeah me! I suppose I could fill you in on my anal fistula/tumor too…but maybe that is TMI. Leave it to be said that Far Side keeps my nether regions impeccabbly clean. She must love me alot!
