The Newest Member of the WildWoods Staff

My wife and I made a trip over to Rosebud, Texas to bring home a new pup that will hopefully be a hand on the place as well as a buddy to us and our Border Collie.  He met the sheep and cattle yesterday and went for a ride in our Teryx two seat buggy today.  It is so much fun to watch this little guy take in all the sights and smells.  We named him Jacob and will call him Jake so we can yell the one syllable name when he needs to hear from a distance.  He is an Australian Cattle Dog or Blue Heeler as they are commonly called around here.  Jacob's color will get darker as the blue merle color comes in more as he ages.  Dogs are good for the soul and pups bring out the good in people.  If you don't have one you should.  Wild Ed

PS:  Jake is howling like a Banshee from his crate as I write this demanding that I finish this blog and come pay attention to him.

Ed, we missd ya! It has been a while since you last posted; I'll bet I was not the only one worried that you had worked yourself sick.

Glad to see you back! Looking forward to watching the new addition grow into his job.

Just been real busy with the livestock with all this ice and cold weather. Hope to get back to doing a few things for fun in the near future. I should be cranking out a couple of gun reviews soon. Ed

Yeah, I to have missed your post, and was kinda worried about you.
Love your new helper. I am a dog lover for sure. Bill
