Oh Wait! This is Really It!

What comes after giddy? (Besides "up"). We returned to the "big ranch" today, after a one-year hiatus. Things are looking good there.

Let Sandia loose with Buffy and the auld warrior, Randir, and they almost immediately got into action.
Sandia can close! This hare is in peril.

And look who's joining in!! (Shh.. let him think he's helping.. he's 11 1/2 now, after all).

But Sandia apparently doesn't need any help, even though Buffy sneaks into the shot to try and steal some of the glory. This run came as quite a shock to me... I didn't expect this level of performance for a couple of months yet. He's only 8 months old! Thank you Chris! He's definitely a keeper. And to the reader who is here every day from Holland... I expect a comment! ;-)


  1. How about making sure you link to files that aren't on your local macine! :)

    Really, all I saw was the last image. That's really cool! Congratulations!

  2. Yep, works now. In the words of Cosmo Kramer, giddy-up!

  3. Jeez, I figured you'd be making this post pretty soon with him, but *one day*!

    Congrats on a great running youngster. May you and he enjoy the desert for many years to come.

    (debating Roswell in two weeks, but probably not)

  4. Cindy-
    actually, it was his second day... but who's counting?
    TCC hunt next weekend in V______. Got some NOTRAs happening up by your new property, too. Make a vacation out of it. :)

    Oke here the comment from Holland. Isn't it amazing? It make me very happy and proud to see her doing so great. Enjoy her and the old man has given the best genes he could so.
    A big hug for Sandia.

  6. Anke: Him... Sandia is a him! But don't worry, I still make the same mistake about her..uh,.. him all the time. It's those eyes and all that makeup!

    SORRY, SORRY. Who cares, as long as they are good hunters.
    Kuddle for the dogs
