The Adventures of Miss Minerva and Mr. McGoogles

Our Shih Tzu has multiple personalities and our Scottish Terrier does too which makes for an interesting day around here.  Miss Minerva, aka Catie, is doing things she would never dream of doing before.  After all, my back is turned because I am giving all my attention to Mr. McGoogles, aka Guster,  the new Scottish Terrier.  Miss Minerva spent a few minutes to peruse the garbage in the pantry.  Note the guilty look on her face.

“You caught me…so embarrassing.”

 

Mr. McGoogles squeezed through the fence to get  in the chicken yard.  The girls are so startled they haven’t pecked him yet, but it was coming and they got him the next day.  He won’t be interrupting the delicate hierarchy of the chicken yard anytime soon.

“Hey kid, what do you think you’re doing?”

 

Ye Olde Chicken Chaser

It started out as a simple garden party, on a parched August day, with a few friends and lovely surroundings…

There was a whisper of mischief in the air and the ladies anticipated it with all their feathery delight.  Slowly they turn, ever alert to what’s lurking in the background…

Let the games begin…

Ye Olde Chicken Chaser…Bad to the bone – just see that it’s not chicken bone!

The Chicken Chronicles: The Tub

On a rainy morning before the sun cam up, not too long after we brought the girls home, I was thinking of what I would do with eight chickens inside the house in a box.  Plain and simple, I was feeling sorry for them especially when I peeked in the box and saw this…

In my early morning, pre-coffee haze, I thought of the bath tub …

 

Believing the best, I want to think of her as a chick sitter; but, because she has had a chick’s head in her mouth I am still unclear on Catie’s true motives…
