This is one hard working dog. We named this area Porky Flats, for the porcupines we've been finding up here. It was warm today, and when I found this puddle near an old roundup pen, I called Ace over for a siesta. The boots were necessary for the sand spurs and cactus around the area.
Ace, Daisy (the mama), and Bandit (the son) have the poor single Blue Quail mostly surrounded.
Here we are taking a break in the cast for the day.
