John is outside giving the goats their last treats before the lights go out with our dog Roxi by his side. She is a working dog and will protect the rabbits, excite the goats, clear any hiking trail of mice or snakes, and do just about anything for approval. Yes, she is a lab mix. We have 2 Catahoula leopard dogs, Roxi is more lab than anything else and Dori is more greyhound. Dori sleeps 23.5 hours per day and cares nothing about pleasing her caretakers. She’s like a 75 pound cat. Tonight after eating dinner and before meeting with the Mansfield Agriculture Committee, we snuggled and cut toenails and checked hotspots. We tried to get Dori off her bed while simultaneously trying to get Roxi to calm down and show kitty for the 14th time that she does, in fact, have food in her bowl (she’s starting to get a little confused in her advanced age). They are a funny mix, these two dogs and their dominant 19 year old cat. Goodnight and be well!
