MISS SKYE B

The Terminator of plants in our yard. Of course it's not her fault, it's those darn lizards who live in our yard. When she spots one nothing will stop her! She has knocked over my things in her path when she is going after a lizard or a bird. We have some really nice metal path lights that she has banged into many times and actually has flattened some if they were in her path of running. We are thankful that she hasn't actually hurt herself. (or that she hasn't broken one of the lights) She that face, that is what happens when you ask her firmly "what did you do?" Then she will run into the bedroom and hide under the bed.

(click to enlarge)

This one is a beautiful section of ground cover. (flowers not open when I took this, it was cloudy) Skye will spend all day circling this sections waiting to pounce on a lizard! This plant doesn't handle her pouncing very well! She has made several paths in this one.

Now here she is doing one of her favorite things ~ catching a ball!


Good thing plants grow back!

You gotta love her, although her daddy doesn't always agree with me on that one.

New post over at Debby' Tree.

That last picture is so darn cute!! I think I would frame it and put it up in the house :-D

Have a wonderful Friday Debby!

Katherine said...

Is that ground cover the type that attracts bumble bees?

How can you stay mad at her with a face like that! She's SO cute.

Joyce said...

Well, she is just keeping you safe from those big, bad lizards! :)
Finn is just beginning to notice all the squirrels in our yard. But, he's still a little skittish of them! He'll take off toward them, but stop quickly before he gets too close!
Our fur babies are such fun, aren't they?

Colleen - the AmAzINg Mrs. B said...

How could ANYONE not love (and forgive!) that face??!! Love her!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Daddy's are always the hardest to please :).

Skye needs one of those lighted paths like an airplane that has a free run for her to get there and nothing in her way ... lol

xinex said...

Awww, Skye is so cute, but your garden looks so pretty even after Skye's pouncing....Christine

nancygrayce said...

Both of my boys go after the lizards and we have obviously got a new crop of babies and they just go crazy when they see them. I'm not sure what they would do if they actually caught one!

:)

Together We Save said...

Great shot... so glad everything is growing back!!

That corgi :) said...

she is so cute and you got to love their exuberance going for things that are invading their back yard. We'll have to replace a screen door here before we move because of Koda bouncing on it in anticipation of going out to "attack" a lizard or bird.

have a good weekend :)

betty

blueviolet said...

You can't even get mad at that cute little stinker!

Amy said...

She is so sweet and cute. I wish I had a nice fenced in yard for my Belle. We have no fences. Have a great weekend!

Xmas Dolly said...

Awww He's so cute & playful. He does look like Dorothy's Dog ~hehe~ You should've called him Toto. I'm your latest follower. Love the pics.

CRY said...

I've read that if you don t want animals in your plants to make a spray bottle of water and some eucalyptus drops in it and spray it not the foliage you don't want animals to bother. You might try that if you don't want her there. She's so cute and I know it must be so fun for her to play with the little critters.

She is soooo cute! Reminds me of my dog Pele' when we begin to ask him a question and say, "Do Youuuu?" He cocks his head to the side- it is hilarious!

Laura said...

Whooops- accidently left that comment from my 'school' blog- (which is why I am Mrs. Doran there)
HA HA HA!
Sorry 'bout that!

Sandra said...

Very cute dog! Those lizards would come in really handy in my backyard. My dog is always bored. This would keep her busy for hours!

Trennia said...

Lol...my hubby tells me the same thing bout our Maggie!
I can look at Maggie when she does something bad and say,Hey look at what you did!"..you better bet she goes hide...lol!
Your puppy is so adorable....

Mara said...

As long as she doesn't choose your head as part of her running track (as my cats have done in the past. I can tell you: it hurts).

Deborah Ann said...

Skye's curiosity is precious! Love that last picture. She's a cutie alright.

Hey, I forgot to mention on one of your last posts, about quitting smoking. I smoked for 20 yrs. I finally did quit, but...when the craving strikes, I smoke a mini-cigar. Not inhaling, so nothing to get addicted to. Just love the smell sometimes...

Unknown Mami said...

I think I could forgive that face a few trampled lights and plants.

Sharon Kirby said...

What would we do without our adorable dogs to love? I had quite a chuckle over this post - especially her "paths!" TOO CUTE!

I have a grand-dog named Marty - he makes my life happier, and he brings me closer to God. I've written several posts about him - got another one next week, too. He just seems to teach me so many things.

Tell Miss Skye she is a scamp - and I think she is adorable!

GOD BLESS!

Midwest Mommy said...

Oh I bet my dogs would go nuts for lizards too.

Holli Taylor said...

Adoption of Jane said...

Too Cute!

Technodoll said...

ah, the joys of owning a... terrier!! she's programmed to do what she does, it's not her fault... she even shows remorse poor thing!

maybe get her a ball that looks like a lizard, LOL!

ModernMom said...

Hee hee and she looked so guilty in that first shot! My black lab broke a patio light chasing a chipmunk this week. Sigh. Good thing they are cute!

secret agent woman said...

Is the second one Mexican heather? One of the reasons I use vinca (periwinkle) so much as a ground cover is that it can tolerate a fair amount of foot traffic.

THE OLD GEEZER said...

What a guilty look :-)

Kerri said...

YaYa's Funhouse said...

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

Oh my gosh...our little Pearl would just go crazy if there were lizards to chase around the yard. She misses the squirrels from our last home....

Silver said...

Sure makes anyone smile!

Brandy@YDK said...

jayayceeblog said...

She's the cutest thing ever and looks like a real pistol, even with her guilty face on!
