They call it a vacation. But do I get to take a breather? Nooooo, there are donkeys and cattle to control, and of course I step up to the plate. Get this, my human sister feeds treats to the donkeys and ignores my "starvation" looks! And the cattle, no fences so they are just wandering everywhere, mooing and doing all that cow stuff (and bull stuff, yeah there was one that woke up on the wrong side of the barn, for sure.)
PLUS stairs up to the bedrooms. Ugh. I might have made a misstep once so my strategy is to look pitiful and someone might carry me. Also, found a good trick about stickers in the grass! If you think you might be in an area where there are stickers, immediately hold your paw up and some human will feel sorry for you and if you are lucky, will pick you up so you don't have to watch out for the dumb stickers.
Also, we had a long conversation with a bunch of guy turkeys. We'd say something and they would gobble gobble and this went on for several minutes. Mom said something about them looking for some hens. How hard is that? I saw chickens everywhere.
I heard coyotes at night and also saw bats flying at dusk. Pretty cool. I wanna go back and this time I'm gonna practice my techniques on stairs and stickers from the get-go. If I'm gonna have to do animal control, I deserve some PERKS!
Wow! You get to go to a real ranch, not just a chipmunk ranch! Lucky Maddi!
