​Life on the Double Diamond D Ranch 

Buddy's Journal Entry:   Somewhere in Time, 2017


Well, Howdy Folks!  It's been a great summer!  I can just feel it:  it's been a wet August so far, but fall is just around the corner. The folks are getting ready with lots of HAY.  My name is Buddy Driver.  I am a three year old Boxer  who has ultimate canine domain over the DDD.  Out here at the Double Diamond D Ranch, The Driver's and their kiddoes think they are in charge of things .... but actually, I’m in charge.  Yep, that’s right!  I take care of the place and am king of the hill in looking over most all the comings and goings.  It’s a fun, yet sometimes exhausting job often requiring mid-afternoon naps.

 You must  come see this place:  The Double Diamond D  is AWESOME!  We have a lot of room to run- 140 acres of it, and a lot of really nice horses.  The Driver's specialize in Registered Paint and Quarter horses.  What makes it even more awesome is that  in  2014 we had eleven new foals! Eleven, yes, count ‘em!   You have just got to come out and see them!  I am just sure you will want to take one home with you and make him your World Champion!

A Typical Day at the Ranch

My typical day includes greeting the Mr. and Mrs. along with the kiddoes as they head out the door in the morning.  My sidekick is a very cute but hyper poodle named Sweetie. Mom got Lil' Missy to keep me company.   It is my job-along with all of the exhausting ranch work to  keep an eye on her shenanigans.  We also have a couple of barn cats Sweetie and I like to play pranks on, and if you check back here often, you might hear about a few of those Cat Commotions.

After I've had my breakfast and have had my daily dose of loving from the family,  I like to greet our ranch manager, "Mr. Al" at the eastern door right after sunrise.  We take a stroll over to the bunkhouse to spot check the doors , then it's off to the feed room where we get breakfast ready for the horses.  After we get everyone fed and hayed, then I lay around and supervise as he cleans the stalls.  It's tough work being the top dog.  After we have the barn tidied up, we head out to check on the horses in the pasture.   We make sure that they are all fat and sassy.  We take a  look at them from their  eyeballs to their swooshey tails to make sure no one has been hurt or gotten into something they weren't supposed too.  We have lots of horses to choose from-  I'm sure if you'd just come visit, you'd probably find one just waiting for you to fit your needs and dreams.  I have a few favorites, but I’ll tell you more about that later.  By the time we get back, it's almost time for a nap.  By lunch time I’ll need to check out the barn again and make sure the cats are okay, and then mosey on over to the hay barn and count some bales. 


Yes, We have Lodging!

If you have driven a long way to come see our place, or if you just want to get away from the stresses of everyday life, you are more than welcome to make reservations to stay in our bunkhouse.  You need to talk to the boss lady about that!  If we have guests staying  in the bunkhouse at the barn, I generally sprawl out on the porch with my beautiful big brown eyes facing the door, waiting for someone to come  out and notice me and pet my little head.  They really have a fancy bunkhouse to stay in.  I have got to tour it a few times when I didn't have mud on my paws.  There is a beautiful queen sized fluffy bed, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a big comfy couch.  Folks that come and stay usually bring their horses and can stall them in the barn with them!  How neat is that?  You can just get up in the middle of the night or in the early morning and check on your horses with a cup of coffee in your paws--err, I mean hands!

Come out soon to visit me and Sweetie at The Double Diamond D Ranch!  I’ll try to give you a grand tour, oh, and when do you come, tell them Buddy sent you!  I’ll even think about sharing my bones and give you a free "Buddy's Bandana" like the one I wear around my neck on special occasions.

 

Love and Paw Hugs,

   Buddy    


 Sweetie’s Journal Entry: Spring 2017

Hello!  My name is Sweetie Driver!  I’m a “super hyper poodle” as my pal Buddy says.  My day usually consists of waking up the Driver family by barking and barking until I finally get someone’s attention to let me out of the house!  Mrs. Driver lets me out and I roam the fields with Buddy—that is after we have made our way down to the barn to check on “Mr. Al” and the horses.

Now, I am really sure Buddy thinks he is “King of the Hill,” but actually, I am.  I am spunky, full of energy and am the true Princess of the farm!  What I say goes, and believe you me, if I don’t get my way, I let everyone know about it!  Not that I am bossy or anything, but I do have an opinion, and it is usually spot on!

Come meet me and the horses at the Ranch.  The Driver’s have so many horses to choose from- I know there will be at least one that will just make your heart go “pitter patter.”  Speaking of horses, I just love it when the Driver’s daughter, Miss Karsen-the love of my life- takes me out to the pasture with her as she walks along the horses and visits with them.  I like to chase them, and they LOVE chasing me!  Oh, speaking of chasing, I love to chase the barn cats!  Those sneaky little boogers!  They like to act all nice and try to rub up on you, but really, they are trying to sneak attack and jump you when you least expect it!  Drives me crazy!  Miss Karsen gets on to me when I try to jump on them-no fair!!!  Oh well, such is the life of a Princess. 

Please join me and my good friend Buddy on your next trip out to the ranch!

Paws and kisses,

Sweetie
