TUESDAY TAIL TALE: SNOW-GA

TIMBER SNOW YOGA BARLEY DARTS

 

Timber here.  Even though it’s winter, I work hard to stay in shape.  I do yoga every morning.  Downward Dog is one my favorite poses.  But now, it’s time to kick my exercise program up a notch.  I’m perfecting something I call, Snow-ga.  It’s yoga, in the snow.  Now, don’t you be stealing my idea.  I’ve got dibs on this one.  Thinkin’ of starting classes next year.  If you’re interested in participating, let me know.  I’m open to barters of pork chops, tennis balls, and long car rides.

TUESDAY TAIL TALE: BANDAGES

MAYA TAIL BANDAGE BARLEY DARTS

Ow! Stop!  You’re killing me!  Just kidding.  I’m Maya and I fooled you, didn’t I?!   Honest, my eyes are wincing from the camera flash; not pain.  And I’m not crying wolf when I say I hurt my tail the other day.  Don’t know what happened, but when I got back inside, the tip was bleeding.  And every time I wagged my happy tail, I painted the cabinets and walls red.  Anyway, the bosses tried several different bandages and I kept taking them off.  Finally, they covered the bandage with (gasp!) duct tape.  Can you believe it?!  It’s so…so… tacky!

TUESDAY TAIL TALE: FEED

TIMBER TRUCK CROPPED 2017 BARLEY DARTS

 

Timber here.  I’m on my way to pick up more pig and chicken feed.  They sure do eat a lot.  Guess, that’s to be expected.  It’s been really cold here, so they’re eating and burning more calories to keep from freezing to death.  Boy, it’s a good thing they have me around to keep an eye on ’em.  And it’s a good thing I helped put up lots of hay this year, too.  Don’t know how the cows, goats, and horses would’ve survived without it.   Anyways, I know you’re worried about me, too.  And I bet you’re wonderin’ how I handle such extreme weather.  Well, I eat a hardy breakfast that keeps me going strong, all day long.  But promise me, you won’t tell my canine cousins that I have a heated day shelter.  And I swear I’ll deny it, if you ever tell ’em I sleep inside with the bosses at night.

(Note: this photo of me was taken in the summer.  Trust me, if my tongue was hanging out the window now, it’d be a goner.)

TUESDAY TAIL TALE: MAYA’S SNOWFLAKES

MAYA SNOW 2017 BARLEY DARTS

Snow.  Snow.  Yummy, snow!  I just love catching snowflakes.  Little ones, big ones, fluffy ones, and cold ones- they’re all tasty.  And I’ve been doing it since I was a puppy.  Now that I’m older, I don’t run around trying to catch them anymore.  I just stand still and let them come to me.

 

TUESDAY TAIL TALE: TIMBER’S TRAINING

TIMBER HOCKEY 2016 BARLEY DARTS

Timber here.  Yep, it’s hockey season.  And I’m busy coaching the boss.  Good thing I can work him into my busy schedule.  I started by testing his puck handling skills.  Since ice time wasn’t available, we opted for dry land training and used a ball.  I could tell the boss has played the game before.  So, we quickly moved on to endurance conditioning.  But man, I tell you, the burpees are killing him!
