First Dum-Dum Stupid misplaced the camera so there aren’t many pictures until we find it again. There was a lot of excitement yesterday. First, we eat breakfast at 8am (by the latest-the Kyla breakfast campaign starts at 7:30). After we finish, Kyla starts the dessert campaign which will not be given until 9:00. Yesterday (Thursday), we had our dessert of green beans. Now you understand Kyla is a vacuum cleaner (Hoover) and green beans don’t have a long life expectancy on the floor. I’ve learned this and I Hoover them up before Kyla comes for them. Kali didn’t know this. She took her leisurely time and when Kyla and I were finished, Kali still had beans to eat. Here comes Kyla-no green bean is safe. Kali tried to protect her food with a warning growl “They’re MINE” but all food is Kyla’s. There was a 2 second altercation and the 24 pound (11.4 kilo) oldster was winning until He broke it up. Kali started limping but after a couple of minutes, she was normal. 15 minutes later she was limping and holding her left front paw up and not putting weight on it. Off they went in the ScottieMobile to the vet. The vet saw a puncture wound on the knee and recommended putting Kali under and investigating. OK-we’ll do that. Still having the camera, He encountered another Scottie entering the vet’s office. A Scottie sighting is very rare. He took a picture of Tabby, a beautiful female Scot and her SUV which had a “I love my Scottie” sticker on it. Kali was ready in a couple of hours and she got bitten in the knee and the vet took out some foreign matter (Kali fur) from the joint which could have left her limping for life. After antibiotics and pain meds, Kali returned. She wasn’t too energetic that night but on Friday, despite leg wraps and a stitch in her knee, she was frapping with Kaci and there was no stopping her. Hopefully she’ll be OK for life and Stupid will find the camera.

Here’s a picture taken about 25 km (15 miles) from our house. It was taken by Lilly, the rescue greyhound next door and for those of you who don’t know, these are real cattle and working cowboys. No, it’s not a vintage photo, it was taken in 2014.

  1. Glad Kali is okay and learns to eat quickly. Bella and Roxy get into some teeth-snapping, growling fights. SHE breaks them up. But, Kali and Kaci have to know who is the boss, isn’t that right, Kyla?

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  2. Once everyone learns Kyla is boss thing will settle down to Kyla rules. Good thing your peeps had Kali looked after and is doing fine now.

  3. I’m always glad to see working cowboys. BOL – we’ve never had food issues, Sam was the hoover in our house, but he would wait for us to give him the signal to clean up.

  4. I hope all is ok with Kali’s leg and the next green bean event will be peaceful :o) My mom “aw’s” and “oh’s” for that picture, one of her greatest wishes was to be a cowgirl once… or Pocahontas… or the owner of a rollercoaster :o)

    • Once again, She’s not telling you the complete truth. She really wants to be a cowgirl who owns a diamond mine…or Pocahantas with a tribe of servants…or the owner of a roller and the 1000 square km of land that goes with it in the center of Paris.

  5. That is a whole lot of excitement for one day. Mom has learned to separate us when we eat. Sidney eats too slow and Shelby gobbles her food. Nobody eats faster than Rocky when he visits. You have to count your fingers after placing the bowl down on the floor.

  6. I’m glad Kali is okay. Poor thing. You did the right thing with a trip to the vet. Expensive, but the right thing.

    I love to watch cowboys work their cattle. Way cool and they almost always have a dog or two along.

    Have a woof woof weekend. My best to your humans. 🙂

  7. Wowsa, not a dull moment at your estate! I’m sure glads Kali is okays, and that your toothers didn’t get hurt…bol Well, she does need to learn who’s the boss, right? I thinks she knows now….
    I loves that pic! There are still a few cattle ranches here in the South Bay, butts I’ve never seen any, Ma’s too mean to let me play with the bovines. Meanie.
    Anyhu, glads everyone is okays, and I sure hopes your peep finds the camera soon….

  8. Got to keep order, am I right, Kyla. I often have to tell Alex who’s boss, but he’s a good kid and a quick learner.

  9. Hopefully, Kali learns really quickly.

  10. So glad Kali is ok. Hopefully now she knows who’s really in charge over there. Poor peeps must’ve been all stressed out with a trip to the vet so soon. Give them a lick and nuzzle.

  11. I’m sure now Kali has learnt who’s the boss in your house now, hope her leg heals up fast xx

  12. We hope you heal up well and quickly Kali!

    O…M…D!!! REAL cowboys!! That is PAWSOME!!
