Doobie’s First Overnight Visit To The Cabin

Doobie made his first overnight visit to our cabin in Red Feathers this past weekend.

Lots of new things seen, heard and smelled these past few days. His senses were overloaded I think.

He’s not a water dog, which isn’t surprising. His personality is very much like that of our old dog Buddy. His favorite activity, running like a bat out of hell and leaping over, onto and between things.

There are no shortages of places for that in Red Feathers.

Life With Doobie, an African Hunting Dog Puppy

Doobie’s Bone Pile

Doobie gathers logs from the firewood and creates a bone-pile in our back yard. At 8 months of age, he has slowly increased the size of the simulated bones.

If he were in Africa amongst his pack, this would probably be where the carcass of a gazelle or something was laying half eaten.

Doobie Adds to the Pile

As you can see, he’s finding the good stuff in the firewood. He will carry a log as heavy as he can manage. I’ve seen him drag them from time to time.

Doobie’s Previous Pile of Bones

We try to keep Doobie’s bone-pile picked up. We don’t want him chewing on the sticks but it’s almost impossible to stop.  We hope to teach him to bring this stuff to us for the fireplace.

It’s hit and miss at the moment.

iPad Entry

Lazy day here in Denver. Snow is coming down, the fireplace is going and Doobie is passed out.

I installed the WordPress apps on the iPad so this is my first test post. Not bad, it’s doing exactly what it should. The photo of Doobie was taken with the iPad as well.
