The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter 9, Friday, September 23, 2022


“Who?” TLC Cai- Cai asked as he lazily walked toward me.


Black Beauty,

and Kia!”

“Oh, I like Black Beauty”

TLC Cai Cai exclaimed!

“I don’t think I like ANYONE!

If Mom stays,

I will be okay— I can handle the company.

“Gosh, Boo Berry Betty.  Mom and Dad have been B.U.S.Y!”

“I see that.  They are going here and there and everywhere on the farm, in the yard, just everywhere.”

“Yes, and you have to FAST if you want to get inside and eat something.”

“Or just get inside, it’s HOT out here.”

“Aren’t you glad we are NOT people?  Their work seems so HARD, Boo Berry Betty, we just get to do fun things all the time.”

“Yeh, but—we can’t go in when we want to.”

Why do you worry, you only come outside when you are with Mom?”

“Well, outside is so BIG!  I just like inside better.” Boo Berry Betty replied.

“What are Mom and Dad doing now, TLC Cai-Cai?”

“Gosh, Boo Berry Betty, they SCATTERED!”

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter Six, Friday, September 2, 2022

Okay, dokay, Mom and I were at the Upper End where Mom was busy taking photographs of ever so much,

and I was sniffing the air

from the safety of my little blue seat.

Blue for me. Boo Berry Betty.  Boo Berry cereal is blue, so therefore Mom buys me lots of BLUE stuff.  Besides, Mom told me blue is her first favorite color with lavender her second. So, my name being Boo Berry Betty told Mom she and I were perfect for each other.

Anyway, I got sidetracked.

Mom and I were out on the farm taking photos and smelling all the cool smells on the farm.

Mom saw the little chipmunk, who lives somewhere in the thicket behind the equipment. This little animal likes to run around on the header for the grain combine.  Mom likes to hoover close by to see if she can get any photos of critters who want to run around on the grain header.

Yep, she got a good one! (after Mom put out a small handful of treats 😊)  Chippy has a fun smell too.

Then Mom and I drove to the pond between the Upper End and the Back Forty where Mom SAW A BUTTERFLY!

(I smelled a Giant wild, HUGE wild, Doglike thing; I wonder if that is what Mom calls a coyote?  I just smelled it; the scent was very faint.)

Mom very carefully tried to get a photo of the BIG white butterfly with black trim on its wings.  Mom was hoping to get a really good photo because she thought it might be a Snow Apollos or Rocky Mountain Parnassian, or something like that.

Just as Mom snapped another bazillion shots of the butterfly it lifted up and flew away.

Mom reached out to give me a pat when


Every which, where, and even Up!


Is just what Mom and I did (after a few more photos)

and I was getting nervous.

Mom started the four-wheeler, flipped it into gear and we were GONE!

I know, I know!  You think Boo Berry Betty and I, Yours Truly, TLC Cai-Cai are the only ones who can make the hens scatter!

Well, I’m here to tell you—Mom can too.  (Sometimes, not often, but, yes, sometimes.)

And the big, loud, HUGE machines can make the hens squawk and run.


Those hens have a few tricks in their feathers, let me tell you.

For one thing—NEVER! EVER! Chase Skitter Bug.  EVER!!  She has a very pointy, sharp beak.  Just say’n.

And—Skitter is very much in charge of her flock and her BIRD SEED!

See Mom scatters bird seed out by the hen run so the birds will stay out of the hen house; the birds like to eat the chicken feed.

So Mom puts bird seed or hen scratch outside the run for the birds.

Now, if Skitter Bug sees the birds pecking around on the food on the ground—

Well, just let me say—

Skitter knows how to make those little birds

“BOO Berry Betty”, Mom yelled,

“Come help me put the chickens away,”


Teeee heee, chuckle, snort!

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter Three, Friday, August 12, 2022

I get this “Scatter” thing, Boo Berry Betty.  I always scatter when there is a HUGE BIG MOTOR somewhere close.

I mean like RUUUUUUUUUUUUN!  Is the word.

And RUN to the house is the answer.

Hiding in the house is the only way to go.


Sometimes in the house—

MOM does the unthinkable!!!


When that happens you and I have to

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!
