Boo Makes A Bad Decision

Poor Boo spent much of his life in a kennel. And while we think he really enjoys living out on the farm with us, we know he'd be even happier if we didn't have a closed gate out at the road.

Boo sleeps very soundly. At least we think he's sleeping very soundly. So soundly that frequently you find yourself staring at him just to make sure he's still breathing. Somehow, even in that state, he's completely aware of what's happening around him. We have yet to figure out how he knows that the front gate has been opened and goes from dead to the world to trotting (now walking) down the lane in literally a matter of seconds.

Last night was one of those times. He apparently had a great time though. It was written all over his face. And doesn't he look quite proud of his garland of dried flowers....and burrs. Holy cow, Boo!!!

Even in the midst of grooming tragedy (from head to tail!), look who's still standing by his friend.

Through thick or thin.

They have some sort of inner radar that goes off when a gate is left open! We went through that with the Pyrenees when the new puppy showed up. We didn't want her to wander away and tried to keep the gate from the barnyard closed all the time. If you left it open for even a few minutes, they all made a bee-line for it! Wouldn't you love to know where Boo was last night?!!

She sure is strange! said...

Oh how sweet!! Sorry for the burrs though, that looks kinda painful for all involved.

Good ol' Comby. That's funny how they've become best buddies. Don't you love long haired dogs when they get into burrs?!?!?!

We have two tri collies and understand that it is "burr season" What a mess you had. I've been there. We also have yellow cats that follow us when we go walking.

This is just so sweet. Oh, if one loses the other one, there will be great depression in your household.
