Desert friends

When I took my greyhounds out running the other day, my neighbors came along.  They are three chihuahuas and their Mom.  Those dogs ran around also, but they came back a lot sooner than my greyhounds did!

This is "Bootie" resting in my front seat.

This is "Tootie", a Chiweenie with lots of energy!

This is Mom, keeping an eye on her babies!
This woodpecker was  enjoying hummingbird nectar
The hummers fought for their liquid energy at the feeder
Notice the rusty color on the hummer at the left...she's a Rufous Hummingbird.

The hummer and woodpecker photos were taken at Ajo, AZ by Patti who is not even a birder!

Desert friends are great friends!

Today I said goodbye to my Dingbat friends, and set "sail" for New Mexico.  I drove as far as Dateland AZ and stopped at a truck stop for a rest.  My dogs were so very nervous as we drove down the road, and panted their fool heads off.  The cat took charge and told them to shape up!  She is a great cat, but could not really make the greyhounds obey the "no panting" orders.  She tried to cozy up to them on the sofa but they began to drip their noses on her so she moved.

Power could not stay on the sofa and ended up standing beside the ship's pilot the whole trip.  At lease he didn't drip his nose on the arm of the pilot!  Power has picked up this nervy habit since we adopted Hera.  He was a relaxed traveller prior to that.

So long Dingbats!


  1. Hey.... I think I recognize those three little speed demon chi's!
    Our collie used to like to stand next to Steve and watch him drive, and sometimes would jump on the couch behind him and pant into his ear while catching the breeze from the open window alongside of him.
    Safe travels today and hope to see you roll in soon!

  2. Try some DAP spray to calm the pups when you are driving.

    Lovely photos. Glad Hera and Power had some friends to run with.

  3. What did the greyhounds think of the chihuahuas and vice-versa?
    I laughed when the dogs dripped their noses on the cat so she had to move :) Love the hummingbird photos. Hope the Dingbats have a good time in New Mexico.

    1. The greyhound like the chihuahuas really well!
