I hate flies!!!

The cows came back today. Mousse is always the first to let us know. He runs out the door shrieking--then we charge out of the house like a thundering herd, all howling even though we have NO idea what's causing the excitement. I think we need some cattle dogs around here!! There is the TN Valley Cattle Dog Rescue nearby--my mom helps transport them sometimes. Maybe she could just keep one... Or some of our heeler friends could come visit...
It was a mama cow and 2 big babies. The baby is staring at us.


Same scene, my mom tried an ISO whatever setting. She's not very good with a camera so she's experimenting all the time.

Which brings me to my biggest PET PEEVE: FLIES. I think the cows bring them around. See here--there's a fly on the wall already.

It's moving.

It flew around the computer.

It's up there now.

Now it's down there.

Going toward the window.

Almost caught it!

It's gone. Dang!

Hey River,

You must have loads of fun with your doggie family. Love that photo of you all together at the fence near the cows.

And those flies are so annoying!

G'day River

Mate I will come and help you with the beasties of you like, though I can't guarantee I will be much help 'cause I haven't actually seen a real live beastie before!

I love flies. There are plenty over here. Just let me know if you ever change your mind about them and I will send some more over to you !

Cheers

Charlie

You be sure and tell your mom we will come anytime and help with those cows. They are a bit bigger than sheep but we can handle it...

Hey River,
I saw some cows yesterday. But they were black and white. Momma called them dalmation cow dogs. Then we saw llama dogs, horse dogs, pig dogs and elk dogs. Momma is weird.

Hi River, Looks like you'll have to keep practicing to catch the fly. Those darn things are just too quick! I've tried and tried but haven't suceeded yet...

EWWWWWWWWW flies! (but the cows are still kind of cool) ... my h-Sis used to keep bunnies on the sunporch when we lived in Chicago. They were FLY-MAGNETS. We had flies everywhere. H-Sis and h-Mom used to play "batter up" with the flyswatters. Glad we don't have them here. I hate how they buzz around my tail and sit on my butt. Can you imagine? Although, if h-Mom can't find where I dropped a poop at the dogpark, all she has to do is look for the flies!

Eeek! flies...nasty things buzz buzz buzz...and they try and eat your ice cream too!!

Mango said...

I can help with the beasties. Hope your mom gets better photos so I know what I'm dealing with.

Slobbers,
Mango

P.S. Good luck with those flies. I can't be bothered, but little pee-wee chases them around (and bees too).

Hi River

My brother Muffit likes to chase and eat flies. He doesn't like cows. I don't really know if I like cows or not I haven't seen many, but the Mum says she wants to see if I like to chase sheep around or just sniff their butts like my brother Levi does.

Oh and my Mum also talks about ISO whatever and I dunno what that means.
