It's a compromise.

It's official. The neighbors dog and I have come to a compromise. Our neighbors got a new dog early in the summer. By the end of summer their dog was wandering over here. The dog began stealing items from the barn ( old plastic containers, hay twine, a lead rope, and one time a saddle pad). The neighbors put the lead rope and saddle pad on the fence knowing that those items belonged here. Obviously the neighbors know their dog is coming over here.

Over the months it stopped going home when I told it to and would stop and stare at me. So there we were, staring at each other time and time again. I'd pick up a small rock at toss it in his direction, tell him to go home, and nope, didn't work.

As you can see in the pictures the dog is pretty small. I worried that the donkeys or horses or Patti Cake the mini mule would hurt the dog since he would run behind them or sit next to them. He never actually chased them, but one kick or one step and that would be the end of that. There has been two animals the dog has chased. One was Inger my favorite chicken and the other was Goat one of our cats. Well, Goat I believe has cured the dog from chasing cats. Good girl Goat. And as for Inger, I cured that. Little dog got a swift kick ( no not hard) in his little rear end. Haven't seen the dog chase chickens or cats now.

This morning sure enough there is the little dog out in the back pasture with the horses, donks, goats and Patti Cake.
Okay Little Dog, it's a compromise. You can stick around so long as you behave yourself.
Until next time......................


  1. Little Dog just wants some friends!!!

  2. I agree with Razzberry, he sounds lonesome. Or, maybe he's part livestock guard dog - naaa, doesn't look right for that. I think you now have a dog. :)


Thank you for visiting. Hope to see you again soon.
