The Freckled Monster

A lovely snowy walk begins with a little ball chasing. Everyone playing so nicely together.

Bonnie is growing up

Ranger loves the ball

Beth REALLY loves the ball

Oliver loves the ball too!

Bonnie couldn't care less about the ball.

Bonnie doesn't chase the ball, she chases the other dogs. She is the self appointed "fun monitor". When the ball gets tossed, she is waiting...not for the ball, rather for the other dogs. She told me it is her job to round them all up and bring 'em back. When I asked her why she does this, she said "Ma, they is getting away!".

She takes her job seriously. She waits and watches...

When the ball is thrown, she waits until they pass, then joins the pack. It is all part of her demented plan

The Freckled Monster strikes

No one is immune to her wrath. Not even Oliver

Bonnie induced dog crash

As the benevolent leader, Ranger contemplates this problem.

Ranger told me he had plans for Bonnie. She was going to learn to stop her evil ways. The next ball toss - he was waiting for her. It was time for a little correction Ranger style.

Beth was relieved. Oliver didn't notice. Bonnie learned her lesson and said she was sorry. Ranger was pleased.

Finally Bonnie's attention was on the ball (for now).

Peace reigned for all...
