Hay Dad, Your Neck’s All Red

Three legged German Shepherd Wyatt Ray runs the ranch in Lake City, Colorado.

Rolling….rolling….rolling…keep them dawgies movin!

There I was, chilling after my big surgery and milkin’ it for all it was worth, when Mom and Dad start packing up the doghouse on wheels and away we go to Cowboy Country.

They tried bringin’ me here when I was a punk kid, but I went CRAAAAAAZY so we left after just a week or so.

Now that I’m older and wiser….ok, older, they thought they could try it again. So Dad’s talkin’ like he’s gonna go play farmer or something and I’m LMAO going “Uh huh, sure Dad, you’re going to trade in that laptop for a tractor eh? Riiiiiiight.”

But look, he wasn’t joking! Yep, that’s him on the left, working on the big hay machine, instead of banging away on that keyboard.

He’s all beat up and his neck is sun burned. I think they call that a RED neck, don’t they? Hah! But that’s why you ain’t seeing him much around lately.

Me, I’m diggin’ it here being a ranch dawg and chillin with my peeps, a pack of wild Shelties and lots of freaky critters like fish and deer and I hear there’s elk too but I ain’t never seen them.

Mom is also working hard but since she’s taking pictures she’s never in them. Trust me though, she’s kickin’ butt doing a lot of gardening stuff here.

I heard them talking about coming back for like all summer next year. I like this ranching thing. A few more weeks of this and I’m going to be running that tractor myself!

  1. Oh, that looks like so much fun, Wyatt! I would love to run in some grass that is full of critters and tall enough to tickle my tummy.

    You are a lucky dog!!

  2. Thanks for having this website. My colorado German Shepherd is facing amputation of one front leg after getting hit by a semi truck last week. It’s encouraging that they can live a good life on 3 legs. We live on a farm so she runs around alot and I guess she will still be able to. Thanks!

  3. beautiful scenery for bailing hay. i remember this from my youth – hard work, and very itchy. hopefully you are soothing your sunburn and sore muscles with adult beverages!!! impressive!

  4. (weird… I posted a comment earlier but it disappeared…)

    Anyway, Abby says she is jealous of Wyatt getting to chase critters in grass tall enough to tickle the tummy.

    Have fun!

  5. The theme from ‘Rawhide’. I love it, but where’s the beef dad? All I see is hay! Somehow, I just don’t see Clint Eastwood bailing no stinkin’ hay. Wyatt, tell your dad to let the cows out. Then you can have some real fun 😉

    Glad to see you guys are having a good time. You deserve it. Do I have this straight, Jim’s a RED-neck?
