Nature Walks – Pups on the Loose

All of our spring babies are already beginning to grow up.  Soon, they will be out of their nests and on their own.  Ah!  They grow up so fast.  So I thought I would share some more our prairie pups before they are all grown up.  Typical of kids, they are in every direction at once, running wild, and creating chaos and confusion for Mom and Dad.

Making plans.


They’re on the run.



Mom, desperately trying to round them up.


Counting heads.  I think we got them all.


Dad is double checking, just to make sure.


Planning their next escape.


Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.

  1. I love ya doggies Jeanne! You did capture their essence of mischievous curiosity and tight family! One question, does this make for a difficult time walking out in your backyard at night or you just don’t go out there after sunset? 🤣😜😉 👍 🇺🇸 🙏 🙏 I think I have a bit of doggie in me, lol.

    1. Thank you. We love them too. Usually we do not go out after sunset, but it certainly is not a problem if we do. Our dogs are bigger than any of the predators out there, at least in our little neck of the woods. If we lived in Boulder, or in the high country, that would be a different story, but here, the largest predators we have are the coyotes, and they are small potatoes compared to both Lucie and Vinnie. 🙂

      1. Hey you’re welcome! I bet you do love them; and I really do too! The squirrels too, which I’ve rescued a few that got hurt. I hear that about going out in the dark that could be narly dude! Heck a girlfriend of my years ago stepped off a curb the wrong way as we were out walking one evening and coming down on that one ankle in such a way that she ended up in a cast and with crutches for months until all the joint damage was healed along with the torn ligament making for a sad time we had to deal with! Out hiking near my home at about dawn with my dog we had a coyote the size of a wolf or almost like a German Shepard; went bolting straight out in front of us about a couple of hundred feet! A one year old puppy lab mix I rescued late one night by a fluke and good for him I did because in that same spot pets went missing due to a pack of coyotes that were snatching what they could late at night. I brought the dog to a shelter the next day but after a week nobody was looking for him so I adopted the cutie he was a great dog loved me to death, when I was hurt with chemical lung damage he was licking me and getting up on the couch with me all he time I was there wanting his buddy to get well and nobody can tell me they don’t get it and love totally; appreciating any good we do for them! Your Lucie and Vinnie sound awesome! I know what you mean I lived in the Ft. Collins area for a while years back and on some hikes into the high foothills ran into a few surprises just good I maybe didn’t smell good or whatever! 🤣😉 But once in a while them coyotes can be bigger than normal I suppose maybe some genetic thing or eating real good they bulk up a bit!🤣😉🙏
