Mabel spent the morning like this, guarding her ball. Maybe she thinks it’s an egg? She didn’t even join Maddie when I brought breakfast out. She finally moved on, but she was there a good two hours.
It’s sleeting/snowing here right now. Not the best weather for the Rockies home opener.
I made a lemon/coconut cake over the weekend, I want to share that since I made some changes to the original recipe I use. And today is Scout’s 5 month birthday, so definitely want to get some photos up of her and Bixby. She’s getting so big, she’s almost out of her (Bixby’s old) 20 inch collar.
The ducks made it clear when they arrived that when the dogs eat, they eat.
They also prefer dog food, no matter how many duck crumbles I add to it, I usually end up dumping most of them out every few days.
In the video, I’m shaking their bowl, but only to get them to look at the camera. All I need to do is step outside and say “breakfast” or “dinner” and they are front and center.
I feed them away from the dogs because they have no problems going up to the dog bowls and pushing their way in. Both dogs back off, unhappily, but I don’t want to risk there being any snapping at the intrusion.
Funny thing, when I was uploading this video, this video of Bixby popped up and I noticed it had 6.6K views. Whaaaattt???
