The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter Two, Friday, August 5, 2022

“Boo Berry Betty,” Mom called.

“Come now.  The hens need to get out and go scratch around.

Come On.  Leave them alone.”

What?!?! Stop?  I haven’t even started.

I’m just standing here in front of the chicken house, not doing anything.

“Boo Berry,” Mom swooped down and picked me up.

“No herding chickens until I tell you.”

Off we went to the sidewalk.

Then Mom put me down.

“Here you go.  Stay around here and play.”

Then Mom went to mow the lawn and I



“IN MOM!  IN!”

Whew, Thank Heavens.

In.  Mom can do her thing WITHOUT ME!!!

Chapter One

“Okay, Dog.  I guess you are here to stay.” TLC sorta kinda growled at Boo Berry. “If you are going to stay you gots to learn some things.”

Boo Berry cocked her head, “Okay.  Like what?”

“Well, for one thing–-HOW TO BE A DOG!” TLC shouted.

“I know how to be a dog.” Boo Berry replied.  “But my world has been rather limited, you know.  From birth actually.  I have always lived in a kennel. From the very beginning.
Then when I left Mom, I went to the kennel at my new home. I only heard other dogs unless a boy dog was put into my kennel with me.  After that I had puppies and then the whole process was repeated.  I was a very good dog and did everything a dog in a kennel does.”

“Well, now you are here. With Mom, Dad, and ME—-it’s time to learn a few other things.

Like ‘doing your business’ outside and not in the house.

It’s okay to RUN fast and turn circles in the air.

And the grass is ever so soft and nice and green.

But most of the all—you need to learn about mice.”


“Mice?  Why?”

“They are yummy to eat.”

“Ummm, I don’t think so.  I only like soft food that comes out of a hard thing.  I don’t like that dry cereal stuff I had to eat in the kennel.”

“Well, your choice.  I like canned food also, and cereal for a treat, but MICE!  Why MICE are the best!”

“And while we are at it—there are birds. SHHHH don’t let Mom know I told you that…she gets very upset if I chase and eat a bird.  But…BIRDS ARE YUMMMMMMMMMMMY!”

“What about those birds that live in that little house Mom goes out to off and on?  You know the one with those BIG BIRDS!  Birds bigger than the both of us.”

“Oh, well…hummm, well, I did try to tackle that white one, but she pecks very hard, and her toenails can dig in DEEP!  My advice is not to eat any of those birds.”  TLC advised.

“Okay.  They don’t look soft and yummy anyway,” replied Boo Berry.  “But I can tell you this.”  Boo Berry paused for effect.

“THEY ARE FUN TO CHASE!!!”  (But only if Mom says I can, which is when she wants to put them up for the night and they won’t go.)

“You have a job!” TLC puzzled.  “WOW! Already.  Well, I have a job eating mice and you have a job rounding up CHICKENS!”

“Hey, Boo Berry!  You do know how to be a dog!” TLC exclaimed

Farm Dog and Farm Cat—buddies.

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty on Friday—-Getting Use to My New Life, July 8, 2022

First off—everything was very scary!  Very!  But gradually I am getting used to everything.

I’ve been here 9 days now.

Nine very eventful days.\

I’ve met Black Beauty, TLC Cai-Cai, all my human sisters and my humans’ brothers-in-law,  and Mom’s granddaughter Tallin.  It’s been a lot!

I have also gone on several four-wheeler rides, the first time in Mom’s arms then I got my own four-wheeler seat.

Once I get off the four-wheeler I get to help Mom and Dad change the water

While they are doing that I sniff up and down the ditch bank.

(All the fast running water scares me so I stay away from it.)

On my last trip up to the new Alfalfa field I found something I didn’t know existed—

COYOTE POOP!  Oh! The! Joy! I sniffed all over it then laid down and squiggled my body all over it.  I was in Heaven.

It was at that point Mom yelled at me!


Shish. My dirty nose and face are just fine, Mom!

Back home I got WASHED!


Anyway…I’m home. It’s nice. Mom says I’m becoming a FARM DOG!

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-You and Me and a Dog Named Boo, July 1, 2022

Mom said I needed a dog.

Mom said she needed a dog.

Mom said Dad needed a dog.

Who would have thought?

I don’t mind dogs.  Actually, I like dogs.  All dogs any dogs.

So, guess what?!

I have a dog! Of which I am bigger.

Who would have thought?

Anyway, this is Boo Betty.  She came to Mom from a friend of hers and Dad.  Boo needed a new home.

Mom said we were dog-less.

Therefore, I now have my own dog friend (of which I am the boss) and the family has a dog and Boo Betty has US!!

(Oh, by the way, Boo Betty has chosen Dad.  I have Mom, Boo has Dad, and we all have each other!)
