Hey! You There!

DSC_9889

 

You weren’t, perchance, digging up my garden now?

Don’t blame it on the big guy.

DSC_9888

You both learned this naughty trick from that old bitch, Chorale.DSC_9884

That’s it … chew each other and forget about my garden.DSC_9890

The Gascon Stud

DSC_9703

OH the boys have been bad.

They had the nerve they have the balls, across the river called Laspeyreres.  Off they went to the lakes that surround, two Gascon studs called Lumi and Jiggy.

… They were bad outlaws.

DSC_9698

Off they went, but they came back.  On puppy probation ’til we fixed the fence.  The color of limstone, the eyes of brown, those charming, little puppies of Grasspunk farm.

Now they’re out flapping ears in the wind.  Those two Gascon studs called Lumi and Jiggy.

DSC_9701

They sniff the ground, they look for figs.  They run around and they have a ball.

DSC_9702

Perty little puppies run on the farm again.  Eyes of brown and on the packs of dogfood.  They love their space and they love to run, those two silly studs of Gascony.

Oh, The Puppy Charge

DSC_7764

 

The heartwarming puppy charge.  ” Jiggy!! Come on!!”  And he comes running, flapping his ears.  The ear flapping helps get you closer to food.

DSC_7755

 

what’s not to love about a puppy charge?

He stands still occasionally.

DSC_7750

 

Then, like a three-year-old human, he runs.  Just because he can.  Why walk?

The girls chilled with my sis and  a tractor tube.  Many an hour can be spent with a great day and a large tractor tube.

DSC_7743

 

Exchanged some gossip.

DSC_7747

 

Bounced the other off.

Lulu, Princess of Gascony, enjoyed her day with family.

Pimp My Lumi

DSC_7435

 

Lumi is off to show his machismo today.  Last night, Minty took photos of his doggy primp before the big day.  It was all going swimmingly.  Lumi biting Jiggy.  Jiggy doing his piranha move.  Then, the hose went on.

DSC_7465

 

He got all sudsy.  Then rinsed.

DSC_7476

 

Then blow dried, puppy style with a shake and a shake.

DSC_7506

 

Chorale didn’t get a bath.  Lumi wasn’t impressed.

DSC_7504

 

After, Lumi did his mud treatment.  Ten years younger, they say.

DSC_7509

 

Then more blow drying by running around like an idiot.

DSC_7503

 

Oh but wait, you too Jiggy.  Sorry stinker, you need a refresh.

DSC_7526

Jiggy

DSC_7328

This is Jiggy. Short for ” Just A Gigolo. ” He’s been here for a few days getting to know the farm and the cats and the cows and the chickens and the kids. And the Lumi. Oh the Lumi.  We’ve not seen Jiggy without a wet, slobbery head. Poor dear. Lumi LOVES chewing Jiggy. Saves him from chasing his tail and chewing his foot ( a pastime Lumi picked up after Tosca died ). Lumi spends most of his time chewing or snoozing with Jiggy.

Underneath all that slobber is a lovely pup.  He’s a sweetie.  He likes to greet you in the morning and chew on your robe while you make coffee.  Okay, while Brent makes coffee for me.

DSC_7340

 

He enjoys his play with Lumi.

 

DSC_7349

 

He has the snarl of Cujo or the 1978 classic Piranha.

In this photo, if you look cross-eyed, a Golden Retriever will pop out.

Chorale, our resident dog boss, keeps them in line.

DSC_7344

 

Though, as I make breakfast or lunch or just walk through the house, it feels like the “Girl Scout fight” in Airplane the movie.

 

Chopped Liver

DSC_7295

 

First night with our new friends.  Resident teen chops some grass-fed liver for a late night snack.

 

Lumi is quite pleased getting to know other canine beings.  Je t’aime, the perky little calf, has been his BFF since Tosca died.

DSC_7282

 

Jiggy and Lumi roll with it.  Each snooze with their own, individual style.
