Catching Some Rays

Today, on my lunch hour, I made a mad dash out to the ranch. 

Yes, we live in the country, and yet it’s only about a six and half minute drive from town.

Actually, it depends on who is behind the wheel.

All I’m saying is, I can make it in six and a half minutes. 

Anyways, here’s the deal.

I have always wondered what our Australian Shepherds did while everyone is away for the day.

Our snow just finished melting yesterday, and the dogs found a good sunny spot to nap and catch some rays.

This is Max and Callie.  As you can see, I woke Callie up from a little nap.

Callie has always been The Head Of Ranch Security, and seemed to be quite proud of her position.

But now???  It seems pretty clear to me that Max is the one on high alert and keeping watch, while Callie is sleeping on the job.

Either way…what a life!

    Yes. I have 2 yellow labs. They are super good watch dogs at night. They bark at cows and birds and who even knows what else. They just hold down the porch during the day. Maybe they just bark while we're home (trying to sleep)so we think they are staying busy and doing a good job so we don't "fire" them!!

    What cute pups!! I bet they are two bundles of energy.
    (I know what you mean about how long it takes you to get home. If we're in a hurry to get somewhere, I ask hubby if he'd like me to drive….)

    These photos are deceptive – it looks so much warmer than just below freezing. The dogs make it look like they're having a balmy time in the sun. Hard to imagine that by tomorrow, the whole lawn could again be covered in snow.

    Oh my gosh, I lost track of your blog and just spent the last hour catching up on all your posts! Glad your daughter is doing well. Your nephew is so big! The missing pan in the cupboard your Wrangler was searching for had me laughing. It's a male thing. My theory, is if it isn't moving, they can't see it, hence the standing infront of refrigerators, cupboards, etc. Think it goes back to the hunter vs gatherer thing.
