A Peculiar Day
The dogs were barking,watching out the front windows. I saw nothing, and returned to my tasks. A higher barking frenzy began, so I returned to the windows and a little doggie with harness and lead rope was running straight up to my front door! He ran up my walk and turned to cross in front of my windows. Suddenly a livestock trailer was parked in front of my drive and a truck stopped in the field across the street in front of my yard. Three ranch hands were running through my yard. With the steer in the neighbors yard, I ran for my camera...the batteries were on the charger. That little doggie was running the back fence and I hoped to get a better shot of him when he found some camaraderie with my wonderful horse neighbors.The ranchers were able to direct him into the pasture and down to the barn where they walked him right onto the trailer. Not sure where he belonged...the local steer would not be wearing harnesses with lead ropes. I remember the heart pounding running after loose dogs and trying to direct them to safety...I so wanted to go out and get some close up shots, but my dogs would have gotten out after me and that would have caused more confusion for the poor little lost doggie. He's in the photos in front of the horses. None of the day following seemed normal and the evening ended with a Cheshire cat moon, I'll post up following!
