Simpatico: Who Knew Newby Could Pull Mom So Fast...


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Who Knew Newby Could Pull Mom So Fast...

As you may or may not know Master Newby is still leash bound when we go out to do our business.  Milo and Dixie are gems, roaming around our 2.5 acres and (usually) coming when called.  Newby... well.. Darling Sweet Newby is as hardheaded as any dachshund could possibly be.

Usually when we go outside, there is a bit of tugging and pulling to go faster as he really has to go, but this morning he tore as fast as he could through the backyard toward the garden.  Me, in my son's flip-flops, size 15 btw, was doing my best to stay with him... It wasn't easy.

I tried to figure out what was causing such a commotion. Dixie and Milo were barking, but doing that "I'm barking but don't know what at" look around. 

Turns out a raccoon was pulling over our corn stalk to grab some early morning breakfast and Master Newbs wasn't going to have any of that. Gotta keep the riff-raff off the property, even if we have to pull mom's arm out of the socket to do it.

Oh Newby, you're as quick as a little squirrel! Good job at protecting the corn from that pesky critter.

Newby way to protect the corn from those pesty possums they are sure to leave them alone now.

OK, if I ever brought my assistant a possum or even barked at a raccoon she might just have a heart attack! She is super scared of both of these creatures and won't let me anywhere near them!

Your pal, Pip
