Absolutely marvelous Hugh!

One has to appreciate obedience once you've shared a house with a basset but I do get my own back at times. Right now Fred is sitting outside begging to come in and I'm going..... *ignore mode*.... :twisted:

We have 120 acres which we don't farm - most of it is set aside for conservation and consists of remnant scrub and also a large area of beautiful mature gums (some a couple of hundred years old) with native grass understory. About a third of it is not really of true conservation value and that bit is pasture for my three horses. We have an enclosed backyard so that the doggies are safely contained when we are not home but of course they need more exercise and stimulation! So I am lucky to be able to meander about on it and if the dogs get loose they are safe from cars but I have to watch out they don't get away and chase kangaroos or I may not find them again! I also have to be careful they don't follow a smell and take off into the neighbours properties.


Sounds wonderful Threedogs! You are indeed very lucky! :D

Desi is Ridgeback/Basset.

Calico, Bella and Desi under the bird feeder. The bird feeder is Bella's favourite resting place. :roll:

Image

The ridgeback side is forever saying, "lets get the hell out of here and go running.. the basset side thinks, "but just turn your back a minute, I need to check the cat's bowl".

The chewed up legs of the birdfeeder are all Desi's work.

It doesn't look like Bellatjie is concerned about the attention from Calico and Desi Meandering Mouse! How sweet! :clap: :clap:

Desi only wanted to get Bella out of there, that's why he chewed up the legs of the bird feeder! :lol: I love them all!! :thumbs_up:

Meandering Mouse, bird feeders are for Nala(dogue de boudeaux) a place to feed on birds ! So be happy with the bird feeder being chewed on not the birds.

Threedogs, you might have to change your name to fourdogs.

Keep the photos coming everyone.

On Friday, we visited friends who have a 3 month old boxer pup, which barked like mad at me when I arrived. It usually does not take me long to make friends with big (end result) dogs, but little runts I can do without, so I grabbed it and picked it up. Soon I was being licked and 'kissed'.

When I got home, our affectionate 16 month old Rottie took one sniff at me and promptly went to bed.....

Next morning at food time, all was forgiven.

Sheesh, I thought it was only human females that were...........

MM, the eyes of a cat are a window on the universe beyond the stars. Which is why we mere mortals cannot shift our eyes when a cat's locks onto them; it is as if two lasers have entrapped us. Magnificent pics there! :clap: :clap:

BB, you started the sentence, so best to finish it? Love the landmark change the pup brought upon you ... no more runts to be ignored in future, I'm sure! :lol:

The terrible (blue) two, Zina and Dudley. :evil:
They got hold of SO's (blue!!) chalk line refill. Need I say more? :slap: These pics were taken after they said hello to me and all the other dogs. No pics of me tho but I was pretty blue too... and the garden... and the stoep... and then they burst inside as the door opened so blue floors too.
