The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— Shhhh I Have a Secret to Tell You

“Hey, Romeo!  Come quickly!”  Lady brayed!

“Okay…what’s up?”  Romeo put himself in to ‘trot’ gear and headed toward Lady the mule.

“OH, Mom, Dad, and the Beagle are coming up with treats for us!”  Romeo replied. “You stay there, Lady and I’ll go meet them.”

“Yumm apples!”  Lady woofed hers down.

“Yuck!” Romeo replied.  “I only like carrots”

“Hey, Boomer….whisper, whisper, whisper…the next time you come up with the folks, tell you Mom to bring CARROTS!”

“Okay, Romeo…but if you will just go over to where Mom is standing you will see she does have carrots…Just for you”.

“OH!  I guess she does!”

Silly horse!






The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— I Had Company

My first cousin, Butter Doyle, a Cocker Spaniel—came for a short visit with me.

This was the first time we have had a ‘spend the night’.

It went really well.

Although, Mom had to keep close tabs on Butter so I wouldn’t teach him new tricks…Like eating COW POOP! Or rolling in a really nice warm gushy cow pie.

Mom keeps a close eye on me for the very same reasons.

Anyway we had great walks…Butter and I went with mom THREE TIMES during the night—the moon was bright, the air brisk and Mom couldn’t sleep.  Worked out great for Butter and me.

Butter was rather lonely without his folks, but I think I helped him — I shared my snacks, my water bowl, and my dog dish.

Then Butter’s Mom and Dad were here and swoosh they were gone.

Butter’s Mom and Dad are my Mom’s brother and sister-in-law.


Mindy was glad when Butter left—she hid the whole time.  The second Butter drove down the long lane to the road she was in the house.

That night she claimed her spot on Dad, while they watched TV.



Rocky Chaco Man is back to work.  Chaco the Service Dog is back doing Service work at the Mesa County Library in Grand Junction, Colorado.

The Library just started up the reading program and asked Chaco to come read with the little kids.  Chaco has been a Reading Service Dog for a long, long time. He started his work in Castle Rock, Colorado and is continuing it here.

YAY! ROCKY CHACO MAN! You are a Hero!

Oh…one more thing

It’s a whopping 9* fahrenheit here this morning! That’s -12.7778 celsius, if you don’t live here.

A bit cold!




The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— Wrap Up

Here it is the end of 2017…I’ve had a very good year…many adventures—

The UnMystery,  where I made it home safe and sound from those wild crazy coyotes and

The Mystery of Nothing, where I got caught in a flood.

I’ve helped Mom and Dad in everything they did on the farm:  Irrigate, sniff at poop…oh, wait, Mom and Dad didn’t sniff at poop.  Worked the land, they worked the land I looked for yummy dead stuff to roll in, you know all the important stuff.

I did get sick this summer.  Scared Mom and I.  But Mom sat with me and held my paw, took me to the Vet for special shots for pneumonia, and rubbed ice cubes on my ears and arm pits.  Sure felt good.

Sammy, My Kitty Buddy, stayed by my side the whole time.


It’s lonely without Sam…he joined my Bested Friend ForEVER this month of December.  It’s rather strange to not having Sammy sleeping close to me.  Mindy Cat is too independent to hang around me much.

Still Mindy and I always go with Mom, or Mom and Dad, when they go for a walk.  Mindy and I touch noses so Mom knows we are ‘good’ friends also.

This past week two of the grandkids have been here.  I didn’t go with Dad and Blade, but I did go with Mom and Tally wherever they went.  Mindy hid from everyone.

 This Christmas I thought I was going to have to get the White Elephant Present…

But Thankfully someone else got it for THEIR dog!!


Now we have cows here…lots of cows here.  Lots.

So this morning a cow did what cows really like to do….she got out!

She was really easy to put back in…Mom made me stay inside…I know I could have helped very nicely, but Mom wouldn’t let me.

Anyway, it’s been a pretty good year all in all.  The bad part was Sammy, but he was in lots of pain.  I didn’t want him to be in so much pain.  Then one day he wasn’t in pain anymore.

Oh, I forgot.  Lady came to live with us.

Well, with my sister Shannon and Romeo really.  But she is part of all our family even if she out of the pasture by my house.

(Lady wants to know if this photo of her makes her look fat!)

Dad, Mom, Myself, Boomer the Sherlock Beaglie, and Mindy Min-Min say

Thank you (all), for being part of our everyday blogging family!

Happy New Year!


(Dad, Mom, and Min-Min)



The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— Cow Check

There are one hundred and eighty three pregnant cows on our farm.


Now THAT’S a lot of cows.

Every day we go for a Cow Check.  Dad says it’s mostly a fence check, but Mom says it’s a cow check…for me it’s a check on the manure to see if there are still little bits of corn in there………….

Of course, when that happens…me checking on the cow patties I always get


Dad thinks I’m funny.

I come back to Mom, but I take my ever so lovely time getting there.

Then when I get to mom she picks me up and hoists me onto the back of the four-wheeler and tells me to STAY.

And she says—“Your breath STINKS”!

I don’t get why she gets so wound up about it, but oh, well, whatever.

Then we ride all around the whole place checking on everything.  The cows are really good about staying in, but with 183 cows the feed starts to slim down.  When the feed slims down the cows start reaching over the fences until they stretch them and break them.

So far so good.  Only the electric fence for the equine pasture was broken.

Once they got that fence down the electricity didn’t work anymore so the whole herd could tromp into the horse pasture and have a WEED eating field day!

Which they did.

So now the equines run with the cows and the cows eat up all the weeds the equines don’t like to eat.

Pretty much a win-win.

Except Mom, Dad, and Shannon had to go roll up the electric fence and take down the stakes.

And Dad had to fix the corral gate where the cows pushed and pushed and shoved on it.

Now what about Me?

Mom made me stay on the four-wheeler the WHOLE time they worked on the gate and the electric fence.  SHISH!

Then when we get back we sometimes sit by Dad’s fireplace and just rest.  Mom says Dad has done a nice job out in the shop.

Just being with Mom and Dad where ever works for me!


The Adventures of Boomer on Friday—-Friends

After a night of checking out the farm (with Mom)


Sage came!  It the first time I ever got to meet Sage. She is a Black Lab and LOTS OF FUN!

She is also still a puppy—I got tired and had to go lay down.  When I did, Sage’s dad put her back into the pick-up and then they drove off.

I was too sleepy to even bark her good-bye.

Then I got to go see my DOG COUSINS!

Penelope Penny Puppy is also a puppy she is just now a year old!

We played and played and played.

That’s Etta—Etta and I love each other.  We romp and play and frolic and rough house for HOURS.

Then I came home and slept for hours!

(That’s an old photo, but it’s how I looked only without anything green growing close by.)

I was wore out.

I guess I’m getting old.



The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— My Monday, and Tuesday, and….

Monday Mom and I went to the Groomer’s Shabby Chic spot.  Where MOM LEFT ME!!! FOR A WHOLE HOUR!!

Then she came back…Boy was I ever glad.  (To tell you a secret I like going to the groomer’s I just don’t like Mom leaving me so I act up until she is out the door.  Once I see the door shut. POOF! I’m a different dog.)

Then Mom was back.

I jumped very readily into the car; I always jump in very readily!


Where I checked out all the corners (again) and got lots of pets, but no treats this time.

On the way home Mom had to stop at the Vet Supply place.  They have cool dogs there!  We all sniffed butts!  You can learn lots of stuff by smelling a butt, let me tell you. Try it sometime, you’ll see. Er,’ll know.

The next day Mom, Dad, and I finished up gathering ALL the syphon tubes…there were fifty million trillion more…Dad said he was glad that job was done!

This time I stayed in the truck.  Mom didn’t want me rolling in something since I just got my white parts shiny.


Which means we go out and check on them daily…by that Mom and I go for a walk.  Sometimes Dad goes with us and we go for a ride.  It’s really, really, really cold now…6* F (-14 C) Thursday morning;

this means I have to wear a coat when we go on the four-wheeler the air is just too shivery for me.

Thursday night we (Mom, Dad and I) had to go down and get a cow out of the fenced in area where the equines live.  Mom says: “One thing about cows…they always keep things interesting.”

Works for me…if Mom is interested that means I get to go with her and do even more things than normal!

A smiling beagle,





The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— The Christmas Tree


I got to go to TRACTOR SUPPLY!  I got many pets, some treats, one man pointed out I needed to be on a diet…. 😦  I ignored him.

Sniffed all the corners…because you KNOW what is on corners!

Mom told me I could NOT lift a leg…so I didn’t!  🙂

Then we came home…I ride in the back seat in the car … I would help her drive if she let me, but she doesn’t.  So I sit on the back seat and wait until we get to the next stop.

In this case it was home.

Inside I helped Mom put up the CHRISTMAS TREE.  She did all the work and I hung out and watched.

Then when Mom turned on the lights….Mindy Cat decided this works just as good as outside…it’s now her bed.

Even the lights don’t bother her.  And she doesn’t bother anything on the tree.

It was a good day.  A very good day.

Mom says Christmas is her favorite time of the whole year…it’s sparkly you see.

Mom also told me I was to get a bath Monday and I get to go BACK to Tractor Supply afterwards as a treat!




The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— Helping Mom and Dad

It’s that time of year!!

It that time when Mom and Dad and I help put the farm to bed.

That means we load up all the two million billion trillion syphon tubes and take them back to the barn to store them for the winter.

And the dams…we can’t forget the dams, they go back to the barn also.

This year Dad decided to bring the pick-up and we would load one load at a time until we get everything done.  Usually it’s Mom and I with the trailer and the four-wheeler.  Having Dad and the pick-up goes ever so much faster!!!


Mom lets me out to run around while they slowly pick up the tubes, then when they look like they are about ready to go to the barn I head over to them and GET a ride home!

Riding home is MUCH better than trotting along behind or getting LEFT behind. (Yes that has happened, but I’m trying really hard to not let it happen again!)

Guess what I saw last night?

I had gone out to check out the yard before I settled in for the night and

There it was….

I didn’t bark, howl or anything…I just slowly, ever so slowly backed up and beat it back to the house.

Sleeping outside in this cold is not an option….or having to have a bath with a NOT VERY HAPPY MOM scrubbing on me late at night is NOT another option!

Anyway…gota run, it’s back to the pick-up and out to the field time.

See ya soon,


The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— A Walk in the Night

Mom and I went for a nice long walk one night in the Full of the November moon.

Mom and I always go for lots of walks

day and at least one at night.

Mom says her favorite night-time walk is in the full-moon, although the dark of moon allows the star-spangled sky to shine.

Mom takes her camera, although she doesn’t always get good photos.  Still…she likes to snap away.

As for me…well…I like to check out news!  But you knew that already!  🙂

So…..along the way we ran into a buck…who actually ran into us.

We scared him so bad he jumped the fence, then the canal and the next fence and ran away, away, away.

Mom took a picture of all the house lights over the mesa from us in what the old-timers used to call “No-Mans-Land” ….I guess it’s should be called ‘Any-man’s-land” now since there are houses all over down there.

On the way back Mom sat down on the gated pipe and just sat.  Suddenly a doe came out of the corn…walked right in front of Mom and guess what…MOM GOT A PHOTO!!!

Of course the deer got a scare.  She bounded off on her tip-toes in dainty leaps and bounds.

Back home the fire in the woodstove felt good…Mom and I settled in for the night…refreshed and bathed in moonlight.
