Where's the song ~~ "Don't let your daughters grow up to marry a Cowboy" ?

​​​​​​​Life is tough! Requires hard physical work, long, long days of pain, dirt, and broken fingernails.​
​Days of frigid cold & scorching heat; through the dust & mud; daybreak into the darkness of nite~~​
​the heart & body becomes toughened & weathered replicating leather!​
​A forever constant factor for a real Cowboy's Wife is tons of sweat, oceans of tears and a constant 'drought' in the wallet!​
​​​​​​​​​IF​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ she wants to spend anytime at all with her Cowboy, she must do as he does, you become partners!​
​​​​​​Kick off your boots, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and envision yourself in my life!​
​... It really isn't that bad! There are many rewards to be had to make it a great lifestyle! ...​ ​​​​​​​

A Midnight Rendezvous...

...gone sour!
Hangin' his head low, scuffing his feet & kicking pebbles with each step he took...
a young feller saunters up our drive at dawn....
Trouble weighed heavy on his shoulders...
He's working harvest, driving combine for a neighboring farmer.
Since harvest starts with the rising of the sun & ends a day~ long after sunset,
this young man has been camped out down by the creek in a tent with a BBQ & cooler. It's saving him a bundle of money from having to commute 45 miles each way, each day.
Scared~is written across his brow.
His hands were wringing themselves into knots.
A whisper~is all his vocal cords allowed.
"Morn'n Cowboy" he begins...
"I am so sorry.."
"I was on my cell phone late last night, walking the distance to find the "can you hear me now" spot.."
"Brindle was ahead of me, nose to the ground.."
"And then he was GONE!!"
"I hung the phone up & chased after him with my flashlight a waving."
"No lights were glowing in your windows, all looked tucked in."
"I knew you kenneled your dogs at night, and there was not a howl to be heard."
"A feeling came over me telling me that I'd better have a look about anyway, so I dodged the lilacs & a sprinkler still watering your lands; stumbled over a stump & landed in the briars."
"I called to Brindle as loud as I dared"
"There was still not a growl! and I hated to prowl...."
"As I unwound myself from a roll of wire behind your garage..."
"I recognised the sound that chain link makes when bumped..."
"Seems as Brindle scaled the 6 ft. in a flash.."
"I am so sorry Cowboy!"
"I was too late!"
"The glow from my flashlight found Brindle~who had found Millie!"
"Racing around to find the gate, I rushed in & tried my best to stop them!"
"I am so sorry, Cowboy!"
"I was too late!"

~~~FREE PUPPIES! ~~~coming soon!

~~~WRONG! ~~~
We called our Vet Tech friend, Rae, who works at WSU Vet hospital...
"Have they come up with a "day after pill" for canines yet??
.....Please, please say Yes!"
Sadly she says "Sorry but No..."

Cowboy's Gotta Make a Decision!
~~~Danged Dogs ~~

"Mr. Hustler Brindle" & "Miss Hussy Millie"
WILL NOT BE havin' puppies...ever!
Imagine this....
Registered Border Collie
crossed with:
are ya ready?
Pit Bull
What's that give you...a good hard biting stock dog?
A Border Bull?
A Collie Pit?
Nope...what it gives you is one spayed Border Collie
which now matters not that she's papered!!
What it also gives you is another huge gouge in the already thin Cowboy wallet!
**All for a Midnight Trist!**

Good morning Barb :)

So... no puppies, huh?? LOL I don't blame you one bit!

Oh.. the agapanthus isn't mine. I stole those picture of the web. I miss having them. Funny thing is, I didn't pay them any mind until they weren't there. Kinda like the ocean.

OMG- I cannot stop laughing... oh damn. I'm sorry, I know it's not funny... but! You poor thing... (And I feel a tiny bit sorry for the young feller who had to break the news to Cowboy- my mental images... oh my...!)

LL said...


Been there... well... not with a pitbull, but a dalliance none the less...

Oh just keep the pups. Just think of all the money you'll make off of 'em. :P

Alex said...

Awwwww.... =/


TOCCO said...

Guess what .... you won.... You have $50 to spend at The Original Coffee Company!!!! Send me an email with your list!!!!

PS... sorry about your dog :(

Caffienated Cowgirl said...

the morning after pill for dogs...LOL!

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

well that little hussy !! LOL

Renie Burghardt said...

Oh, my goodness! What a calamity, Barb! But the puppies will probably be cute. All puppies are cute. lol.



"JEANNELLE" said...

You know, it could be really interesting to see what the puppies would look like......something new and different. Different is good!

Pony Girl said...

Oh goodness, I'm still chuckling....well told story....but you're right, those pups will be quite interesting, I'd almost pay to see how they turn out! Hey, they might be good workin' dogs, and as long as they mostly look like border collies (since people tend to have a fear or anything resembling a pitt bull. Or, maybe I should just speak for myself) they should be able to place in homes fairly well! ;)

Sage said...

Oh dear... the trysts of the young at heart.. well meant but none the less unwelcome. Hope Millie has no after affects...

Razor Family Farms said...

Did they end up butt-to-butt? If not, then you are probably in the clear. Seriously.

Cross your fingers!

Dear Barb,
Shit happens ... and more often then we wish. I couldn't help laughing though as the way you tell this story is so realistic and tragically comic. I could see the whole thing before me as you described it. I remember two summers ago Kato jumped out of a window on the first floor to go and see the neighbors dog ... it's the kind of stuff that keeps you busy on the country and helps you to find original ways of spending money.

Oh my hell! I know just how you feel! My little dogs had the same thing on their mind too! I kept them apart at the first sign! That dang JRT I have was in heat for 5 weeks! So I too wanted to know if there was a "day after pill" for dogs! So now we just wait, and hope that it doesn't happen!! Ours would be "Jack Heelers?" Queensland Russells? "JRTACD?"
Yea... I feel your pain sista!
