chewie and ziggy again helped me at barn bedtime. ziggy has gotten the whole routine down pat...follow me around to and fro, stay out from under my feet as much as you can and share a cuddle or two or twenty while doing the work.
chewie however is starting to improvise....trot along side of me...quickly dart right in front so i almost trip, try to see and taste what is in every single bowl as it floats by just out of reach and if that doesn't work..run back to the feed shed, climb up on the freezer and stand up there taste testing the bowls that are still there.
i have to say this...old animals can be a lot of fun...and they can get into a lot of trouble..AND they know exactly what they are doing at all times....that is what makes them fun.
but the young ones have an innocence about them..an almost irresistible enthusiasm to experience as much as they can...no thought of right or wrong, just impulsively doing whatever occurs to them and that is what makes them fun to be with too.
for an old animal freak,i sure am enjoying the exuberant youth around here too.
