The Visitor

Yesterday this little fella showed up on the trail, just minding his own business...Until Ole caught a glimpse. And after a fair verbal warning from him with no response... he decided to take matters into his own paws.This little cat really wasn't in that big of a hurry... he really didn't even have to go very far. (Looking a little soft Ole!)All Ole really wanted was a cat free trail.

No cats were harmed in the filming of this post!!

It's probably a good thing the Guinea's didn't see him first!

Good dog Ole! Keeping the trail safe and free of interlopers.
Would the Guineas have given chase too? Are they "Guard Guineas?"

Eve said...

Ha Ha Lynne...he's a good ol' dog. They ARE guard guineas! I think that poor cat would have had to run a bit faster if those guineas had caught wind of him!!

Mary said...

Poor kitty...picked on by everyone when all he wanted was a nice sunny spot to watch for mice and creatures.

Denise said...

Maybe Ole just wanted to go over and say a friendly hello? "Woof, woof, you're welcome for a visit but this is my patch don't you know?"

Jenny said...

I agree with Denise, I think ol' Ole just wanted a little canine/feline chat. Smokey wasn't playing ball though!

Roy said...

Well I'll be "dogonned" or is it "cat-gonned".

Evie, you can tell I use to watch cowboys when I was a lad.

Shellmo said...

What a good boy! Did he get a biscuit afterwards?

Steve B said...

What a funny guy. Probably watching out for the birds!

John Theberge said...

I'm a cat person so I was rooting for the feline.

Eve said...

Denise, Jenny, I think Smokey was just blocking his view!

Roy...Yehawww!! Me too!

Shelley...does he LOOK like he needs a biscuit???!!!

Steve...probably because deep down he wants to eat the guineas and doesn't want to share!

John...I think if the cat had just sat there, they may have made friends!

Go, Ole! Good boy.
Hey, Eve...how do you pronounce his name anyway? Is it "Ole" and in "hey ol' man"? or is it "Ole'", like what the bullfighters say? Just wanting to make sure I'm saying his name correctly in my head. :-)

Eve said...

Hi Danni girl!
Ole is a Norwegian Elkhound. Ole is a Norwegian name. It is the name they use in all the jokes I guess. (my step mom has informed me of all this since she is Norwegian, from Minnesota. So Ole is pronounced Ol--eeee. with a long e. Like rollie polie Ollie...we call him "fat dog" for short.

That was a fun post - nature doing its thing - cats & dogs - gotta love it! haha

Kathryn and Ari said...

Nice restraint, Ole!

I'm always surprised that Ari distinguishes between cats: the two who live with her are good friends; the ones that wander through our yard are mortal enemies. What gives?
