Hiya! It is I, Chance the most handsome blogging Border Collie in Minnesota!
I am free, free at last. It snowed and all the skunks S.H.O.U.L.D. be in hibernation for the winter. There are only deer, rabbit and fox tracks out there…along with mine of course!
Getting skunked was the worst. Far Side can’t get over it and reminds me almost daily to “Leave all the skunks alone.” She doesn’t care if they are looking for bird seed or wandering through the yard..I am to leave them alone. Do you know how hard it is for a Border Collie not to herd something?
I am allowed outside by myself now. I am very good about staying in my yard. Far Guy and I go for several walks everyday, out of the yard..together. We keep the wood fires burning down at the shop. Far Guy takes his phone just in case he falls and breaks a hip or something..and IF I come back by myself like I did yesterday Far Side will take me in her car to go see what the problem is. ( There was no problem..just a bunch of guys loading up an old tractor and Far Guy was helping.) For awhile it was me and Far Side to the rescue! I love it when she says “Chance get in the car!”
The deer are now running through my yard. There must be a whole herd of them. I bark at them..but I do not chase them. Far Side calls them “Tick Carriers” and wishes that more of them would have met their demise during hunting season.
I went to see Odda last Sunday..she musta been missing me because she was real happy to see me!
Odda has her own furball…I didn’t chase her either. We had a good visit. Yesterday I heard that Odda was off to the Doctor for a little surgery..so she cannot have puppies. Far Side said “No Puppies..that is sad.” Oh well..I cannot have puppies either… and she wasn’t real heart broken when she drug me to the Vet for my “little surgery.” So she should just get over it!
That cats name is either Sophie or Sophia Furball, Odda has two cats and it is hard to remember which one is which:)
