Yes he did sleep right between us
We went to the pond and then picked
up limbs in the yard and took them to the burn pile;,
then visited mom and a neighbor to show off. Then we
went to the store to see everyone there and back home
for a long nap.
He loves to play on these boxes of
siding that we have on the porch.
He Watching Maggie catch the tennis
We have had the best time today.
I've been calling him Ben because he reminds me of a
Gentle Ben, with the nerves of steel! He is so loving
and is so interested in everything
that's going on. Ben means son of
so I would like to name him Knaus'
Cimarron Rustler's Ben. Or maybe Knaus' Cimarron
He has the most piercing eyes when he
looks at you-- just makes my heart melt!. And he loves
Terry-- just follows him every where.
The other dogs are warming to him
quickly.. Miss Pitty, my beagle (who's name was Pitful
when she came down my drive starved, no hair and mangy
bloody feet) --thinks he's the most handsome thing she's
ever seen. She adores him.
So our first day after the trip home
has been a blast. I don't think he even whimpered once.
I found my clicker that I trained Maggie and Beau to
sit, stay and shake with -- they love it, because they
think it's a game. I am going to give it a try this
afternoon when he wakes up.
It's turned hot here --in the 80's
today. Will send more pictures and let you know how
Thank you again for him--I just love
I'm calling him Ben..
He reminds me of a Gentle Ben, with
nerves of steel. So I am still
considering Knaus' Cimarron Gentlemen
Ben. I will think about that
He reminds me of Beau
the way he goes to the gate and just
sits and looks at the cows. He does
scare me because he doesn't fear of
anything--so I have to watch him like a
hawk right now, and Maggie is beginning
to keep her eye on him too. I have a
large fenced backyard, so I open the
door onto the deck and he goes in and
out while we are in the house. But he
loves to get out with the Big Dogs.
I raised two calves
the past year, and they have a little
hole they've found in the fence where
they come through and come up to the
shed for food--and now they have a
little herd of about 6 calves following
them. I feed them and after they get
through eating Maggie puts them out of
the yard. Ben got in on the chase
yesterday. He was so proud of himself.
He hesitate briefly but when he saw
Maggie behind them -- he jumped right
in. It's so much fun watching him --
everthing is just such a wonder to him
