Roo the Cowdog strikes again!
What does a dog do all day? Well, our dog Roo mostly sleeps all day. During the really cold weather, we bring her in the kitchen to sleep on her doggie pillow. She snoozes all day, only opening her eyes when one of my sons comes in the room and speaks to her, or when she has some desire to eat or drink. Otherwise, sleeping is the major event on her agenda.
So what does she do all night? If she is in the kitchen, she sleeps...so quietly that I sometimes forget she is even there! But if she is out in the farm yard, she spends the night barking at various critters that make noises in the dark. I used to think that she probably was protecting her family from the varmints, but now I believe she is protecting her personal stash of snacks. When she is given a bone or a choice piece of steak meat, she daintily takes it in her mouth and heads out into the pasture around the house. I think that she has a whole network of holes filled with tasty morsels that she must protect from anyone smelling around. She makes the rounds of the house, barking various pitched sounds--obviously warning the varmints that they better leave her bones alone!
Hank the Cowdog books! And, there are more stories of our Roo, the cowdog on this blog as well.

Love! She's so pretty and that's a great name for a cow-dog. We actually have a Jake the Cow-dog and he is my bestest riding pal in the fall. He helps me so much! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful dog! Beautiful. Her eyes are hypnotic.ReplyDelete
She looks like a border collie or Aussie.
SOO smart. Love how she moves her bed to where SHE wants it...not where YOU want it. LOL
My husband read "Hank The Cowdog" when he was little - still to this day when we take our cow herd (all 4 of them) over to their pasture he opens the trailer and says in his cow voice "Look at all that tall green grass - I shall try to eat it all myself!" I crack up everytime! Both our girls read the books and my 8 year old son got his collection for Christmas this year!ReplyDelete
We have a lab that has a mind of her own, similar to your Roo...and we're still trying to figure out what she's barking at during the night! Don't farm dogs have the greatest life?!ReplyDelete
Sure like that The girl know what she wants. Can never figure them outReplyDelete
I can't imagine a farm/ranch without some kind of dog...and they all have their own type of personality. It's great.ReplyDelete
I have a bed-moving dog too. Must be the cattledog blood in her...ReplyDelete
Hope you have dug yourself out of the snow.
The storm wolluped us here in Vermont.
