Ripples the New Ranch Cat

           Ripples the cat is the coolest cat I  have ever met, he follows me around the ranch despite the fact that I have 3 to five dogs following me every where I go. He even likes to ride on the mule or gators too. DSCF1827  P1280002

Ripples Rides the John Deere Gator at Deer Lake Cabins

Storm Whistle’s and Dog’s with age related hearing loss.

Shadow wondered off and if I yell, or whistle he doesn’t hear it anymore, last year I bought this Storm Whistle   sw I am amazed on how well this works and so glad that Shadow can hear it.

Here is a video of a time Shadow wondered off he was frantically looking for me. He was heading in the opposite direction when I started blowing the Whistle (I didn’t think to record it right away).

This whistle is a God Send for dogs with hearing loss.

Found Dog: Franklin County Texas Kings Country at Deer Lake Cabins

The Dog Magnet strikes again! This young guy found me yesterday when I was working on a road  at Deer Lake Cabins Ranch Resort.


The link below will have contact info. and more info than the picture above, If you know who’s dog this is please let  me know! 

He is being loved, fed and shelter  DSCF2759 and he even has lots of new friends!  Even though he is happy to be safe, he is missing you so I hope we find the owner soon!


Bandit, the Corgi came back just a couple of days ago, so Three times now for him, and two for the St. Bernard Mix, I think they think I am their foster mom!

Unbelievable!!! Stray Dog Returns On the Anniversary of Shiner’s Death


Do Dogs have a 6 sense? 

February 3rd, I was walking with Shadow and Shylo and I noticed a Corgi stuck to Shylo like glue! I knew it had to be Bandit! P2030154 (Bandit was a stray dog we took in last winter when he showed up by our RV).   Shiner and Blue’s entryway into staying in the RV!

Did Bandit come back on this date because to pay his respects to Shiner?

  February 3rd  was the one year anniversary of Shiner’s death , the infamous Ranch Dog at Deer Lake Cabins. 5742_10201409628182751_2106262655_n 

We went over by Shiner’s grave and the dogs and I paid our respects: Shadow took it the hardest Sad smile           P2030169 

I  thought it was interesting that Bandit shows up on this date!


Last year The Corgi spent a few days with us before we found his owner. (You can read about it on my blog by putting Corgi in the search bar). Here is a photo I took of Bandit’s first reunion with his owner): Captured Videos[4]

and a funny video I posted when he was here last year. or  (click the link below):

To my surprise Bandit had a collar and a tag with a phone number! It was the greatest thing ever, to see the owners actually took the time to make sure someone could find them easier if Bandit went astray again!

 P2030144 Bandit seemed to feel right at home with the boys!  I told the owner that Bandit could just spend the day with us and he could get him after work if he wanted to. So the three dogs hung out and had a great time catching up! P2030151

Blue spent most of the day working with  Dave  DSCF1595, so he didn’t get to see Bandit for more than a few minutes before he was picked up, but at least they got to say hi!

I met the owner at the gate but before he left, Bandit whispered something in Shylo’s ear!  P2030152 I think he told him he would work on his next escape and he will see him soon!

Snowmen Texas Style

Snow in east Texas brings out the creativity in many who rarely get a chance to see the snow, let alone create master pieces! Keep reading to see how these master pieces became a part of my blog!

We had about 4 inches of perfect packing snow, the dogs were excited and couldn’t wait to get out to play! So outside we went… snow 2015 2 I took the dogs out for a walk and took some pictures of the winter wonderland at Deer Lake Cabins. snow 2015 21 We didn’t get very far and I heard a big cracking sound, seconds later a huge limb was on the ground. I knew it wasn’t safe to be outside with the dogs so we headed back to the safety of the RV.

I knew it was going to be a long day inside, so I  made snowmen and snowballs with bird seed and put them by the bird feeders. I figured it would be more entertaining than just watching them at the feeders! DSCF2462a081 When Dave came home (after he was done laughing at me), he suggested that I post my pictures snow 2015 23

When I got to their page, I started looking at other peoples photos and was amused by the snowmen, horses, dogs, turtles, bears and more! I decided to copy my favorite ones and post them on my facebook page so my family in WI could see these Texas Style snow creations!
