Other Half is out of town.  He has gone to some "starched shirt something" which doesn't include his partner, Oli.

 

Because we have so many freakin' dogs, their care is divided into "yours, mine, and ours."

HIS:

New Police Dog - Oli
Old Police Dog - Zena
Rescue Border Collie - Cowboy
Space Cadet Blue Heeler - Ranger

MY DOGs:

Precious Can Do No Wrong Border Collie - Lily
Ancient Half-Blind Bloodhound - Alice
Black Wolf Belgian - Ice
Livestock Guardian Dog - Briar

OUR DOG:

Little Red Snot Border Collie Puppy - Trace

(Even though Ranger is in Other Half's stack of dogs, he believes he is MY dog, so I attend to his physical and emotional needs. And even though Trace is OUR puppy, make no mistake - he's MINE!)

For the most part, the care of everyone except Oli and Cowboy falls on me (cuz I'm tha Mommy!).  Oli is his partner, and Cowboy is his truck dog. Since Cowboy tries to fight with Ranger (who kicks his butt every time) and he pees all over the house, he cannot run with the Big Pack. Since Oli still views Trace as if he's a high-priced meal, she is also not allowed to run with the Big Pack.  (It would not look good if Other Half had to report to his agency that I shot his $7000 dog because she ate my toddler puppy.) So Oli and Cowboy are a small pack of their own.  They putter around the yard together, they play together in the living room, but they have absolutely nothing in common.  (just cell mates!)

* Oli loves to trot endless circles, chase cats, & kill sheep.

* Cowboy likes to run in large sweeping, slinking circles around livestock. He likes to stare at stock, and cats are beneath his radar. (and he likes to pee on everything!)

 

While Other Half is out of town, I must exercise his dogs.  So today after the Big Pack got a morning walk, the Special Needs Pack got their morning walk. That's when this was caught on the surveillance camera. (or it could have been me sitting in the horse trailer with a Canon)

I took these shots for Other Half since he will not believe me without proof. 

This is my driveway.  

 

Robert! See that crater!

Look at the dog diggin' that crater! 

Does this little butt look familiar?

No, it's not "out of focus," that's sand flying at the camera!  Look again!

 Does that look like my precious, innocent Briar? 

No!  In fact, it looks a LOT like your little red heathen dog, OLI!  Doesn't it?

The State rests its case, Your Honor!

Bad dog! Bad! (It would not look good if Other Half had to report to his agency that I shot his $7000 dog because she ate my toddler puppy.) Bwwwwaahhhhaaaa! $7,000 dogs are overrated. Sic Ranger on her. He'll teach her not to eat his puppy. :) Of course, then there's the vet bills.......forget it. Just kidding, OH.

Hehehehe! Unfortunately she is so fast that the damage could be done before Ranger had a chance to respond - and . . . I'd have to shoot her. There would be lots of drama. OH would be very upset. It's just better to keep Trace away from Oli until he's big enough to be considered a DAWG!

Very entertaining post! :) What breed of dog is Oli? I have a feeling I know, but I don't want to embarrass myself if I'm wrong. :) Actually, I'm probably wrong. LOL

Thank you! (I needed pictures to PROVE that HIS dog was digging that hole because Briar is the one who gets blamed for digging most of the holes around here!) Oli is a Belgian Malinois. She was imported from Czechoslovakia. As tiny as she is, she's like a little missile in her bite work. I think she looks like a pound puppy though and every time she stares back at me in her kennel I swear I can hear Melissa Etheridge singing, "In the Arms of an Angel."

Oli is a Belgian Malinois, I think imported from the Czech Republic. Anyway not a native-born American dog. Funny but she never gets called a Belgian Shepherd though, like Kona, Ice, and Penny et al. Oli is slicker-coated than other Malinois I've seen. Sheri will correct me if I'm wrong.

Yea! I'm not embarrassed! I was right about the breed! :) I would love to see her work. I've seen some videos of these police dogs doing demos - very impressive. The focus and quick reactions were amazing! (It was in Europe somewhere.)

And Oli is just that fast! (which is why I don't trust her with baby Trace until she no longer looks at him with her eyes bobbing like apples in a water tank at the fair!
