Coyote Hunt

In the wee hours of the morning, the dogs suddenly went wild and I knew a Coyote must of been very close by. We've had a pair of Coyotes hanging around the area now for the past year. They never come on my property but one is so bold, it went after a neighbors old dog mid day. Fortunately he was right there and it did run off. Early morning I let the dogs out and they did their routine perimeter check though this morning they did not come back up to the house. A bit later I ventured out with camera in hand. A lot of fresh tracks in the snow in my neighbors yard and right along my fence line. Something was keeping him hanging around my neighbors yard and the dogs were all over it.

Fresh Coyote tracks.

The Coyote on the other side of the fence moves along the river heading off into the woods.
Had he not seen me and spooked, at first he seemed to have stopped and was looking at the dogs.

Kid Crazy

Nick is 9 years old and loves dogs. He came over to meet the 'big dogs' but was a little intimidated at first when he got to the gate and saw just how big and how many. We assured him it was OK and my dogs love kids. Lots of lovin going around.

Babe gives a big hug.

Hannah as always, the perfect lady. Gentle, calm and reassuring.

Shameless Zoran. Somehow he *always* manages to charm every visiter into scratching his butt! But the both of them sure do look happy.

Anatolian Song or Name That Tune!

Sunday, November 01, 2009


I have a real fondness for cattle and particularly the girls, I always like to stop and see them.
Its especially nice to still find small family run farms which are ceasing to exist. This farm is a dairy and specialized in real milk still in glass bottles and ice cream.

What could be cuter than baby cows!
