Since Pistol is bred to be a working cow-dog, life in town is not quite ideal for her as a pup. So I try my best to take her to the lake outside of town and we make the 7-mile trip around the trails.
|Pistol as a pup. Take a good look. I can never get her to sit still this long for a picture.|
|I asked for a timid dog, and a timid dog is exactly what I got. She hates to sit in the seat of the truck, but is perfectly content to sit in the floor and move at even the slightest hint of a camera.|
|There are many geese and ducks that fly into Dalhart for the winter. Pistol is scared when they are close then loves to scare them and watch them fly off the water. Pretty cool sight up close.|
|As the 7-mile trail wore on, I must admit that my dog was out pacing me. She would whine and run back to me when I wouldn't keep up the pace. Great motivation for exercise if you ask me.|
|When we reached the final split in the road, Pistol got confused. She wanted to take the high road to the left, but we ended up on the right.|
