Here in Harper, Texas, Connie’s Pyrenees guard dogs holler back cuss-words and threats back at the coyotes.
The male & female Pyrenees tag-team ‘em.
The female sleeps on the porch all day long for alll the world like a piece o shit useless fry-pan of a dog.
Turns out she works nights.
When Ben needs it she backs him up. She patrols all night. She came home the other morning jaws covered in blood.
I asked Connie.
It wasn’t hers.
Tomorrow they tag all the lambs and hope the coyotes & the cats don’t make a waste of their work.
Back in June that last lamb we docked his tail. He stayed in the field w his momma. Cats got him that night.
