Other Half has been on the working on the border and I have been spoiling someone while he's gone.

Other Half has that rancher mentality. Livestock is livestock. Dogs who are supposed to be guarding livestock are supposed to be outside WITH THE LIVESTOCK!  (yeah that's probably true.)

But I'm a softie...

....  and it's hot.

So this week I've been letting a certain someone inside. It started innocently enough. She needed to be brushed and I sure as hell wasn't standing out in that heat to brush her. So I brought Briar inside and she sprawled on the carpet while I watched Longmire and brushed her, and snipped out the matts.  She was in Heaven.  Briar LOVES air conditioning!

So this morning after I did a head count of livestock, I turned the sheep in with the horses, and let Briar in the house again. She found one of Henry's stuffed toys and decided to play keep-away with Ranger. That big dawg richocheted around the coffee table and bounced off the couch. Other Half would have stroked. I laughed and laughed and laughed and wished I had a camera.

He is coming home today and so Briar is back to being an outside dog, but she sure enjoyed getting a peek at how "the other half lives."

And since we are currently designing the barn at the ranch, Briar also put in her order for a window unit air conditioner in the barn.

I think it is too funny that a tough man, who can butcher hogs and pull calves, thinks Briar's soggy wet beard is gross!!!

If Briar ever decides that the house is preferable to the yard - you could always get one of these:
