Cockeyed Homestead 

We Invite You To Visit Us At:



Herbie is a terrier mix with a very big attitude. He was my mother's dog and I didn't know what he was going to be like here in the country. It turns out he's excellent at killing mice and moles for me. The cats have a bad habit of bringing in their "catches" alive (YIKES!) and Herbie finds and kills them for me

I have to shave him once or twice a year. His coat gets full of grass and sticky weeds. He hates it and growls the whole time but he puts up with it!

Herbie has become a fixture around here. He loves to play and chase the cats. He also breaks up any cat attitude problems by jumping between the two offenders. I always think he's going to get scratched but the cats always back off from the argument. I wish I knew his secret!

Here he's watching the cat check out the new chicks I had hatched. He watches the young chicks but has been in a tussle or two with the adult roosters. The new rooster, Whitie, (one of the chicks in the pen)is pretty mellow so Herbie comes and goes now without any trouble.

Herbie grew up with Derv and will hang out with her sometimes. He'd rather play with her because she's always been gentle but will rough house with him.

Oddly enough, Herb gets cold in winter when he goes outside. He won't stay out without a jacket of some kind. When I pull one out, he's all excited and puts his feet in the armholes without any trouble.

On to Nnyus! or back to the Cockeyed Critters
