Sisters

You've already seen one of these shots in the header collage above, but thought I'd give the Catahoula sisters their own post.  Louise and Thelma enjoying a sunrise...



 (or maybe they're just admiring that fine new fence!)  :)

These are so very sweet!! I'm sure it's the fence they are admiring.

Hilary said...

What a couple of beauties. It looks like a lovely morning.

EG Wow said...

Ha! Whatever they are admiring they appear to looking at together. Sweet photos.

Lynne said...

BEAUTIFUL . . . I love the "look back" to check . . .
For sure they are singing, "I like where I am fenced in . . ."

Ellie said...

Ah, you have a couple of lovely doggies there. I love how they are looking out at the sunrise. :)

holdingmoments said...

Just chillin'!
Love it.

Judy said...

What a cute picture of these two.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Louise: What do you want to do today?
Thelma: Dunno. Same thing as yesterday?
Louise: Sounds fine with me.
Thelma: Glad we have that settled.

Buttons said...

Oh I love this. If they were sitting on a park bench with a picnic basket I would think they were of the human kind. What a great sentimental thought this has put in my head. LOVE. Thanks for that.
Merry Christmas Tex. B

Kathy said...

I think they're spotted that frost around the fence and have decided not to get their paws cold!

Roan said...

These photos make me want to sing, la la la....Oh what a beautiful mornin', oh what a beautiful day, I've got a beautiful feelin', everything's goin' my way...

Texan said...

I am thinking its the fence! :O) They looked back to tell you to come on over and sit down with them.

Sandra said...

i think they are drinking in the beauty of the sunrise and discussing the fact they live in paradise with a hoooman that loves them. the look over the shoulder is priceless. they are either saying Look Mom, do you see it? OR there she is, our Mom with the clicking box AGAIN

Arija said...

They are so sweet. Is that frost on the ground?

Rita said...

I feel just like that when I watch a glorious sunrise out across the horizon. Warms my heart to see how they actually appreciate a good sunrise. ;)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I vote for admiring the new fence ;-)

Pattie @ On Hollyhock Farm said...

They are toooo cute! I had two goats named Thelma and Louise. They have long passed. Great pictures.

Hound Girl said...

Thats cute and made me smile - thank you. what good dogs - mine would run for the hills lol

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

oh my gosh, what adorable dogs!

i just want to smooch these beauties!

Christian said...

Sunrise? Not seen one of those for a while in Lancashire!

Jan n Jer said...

Cute pics...they look quite content to welcome the new day!

C. Joy said...

It's pictures like these that make me think a dog's life is a pretty good thing. Thanks for raising pets that have time to relax, appreciate, and just flat out enjoy the sunrise. Maybe this is how dogs pray... "ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL..."

latebloomerbuds said...

Maybe a little of both. I can hear them sighing in peace right now. They are sooooo cute. Margie

Mamabug said...

What sweet girls they are! Merry Christmas Thelma and Louise! Hope Santa brings you lots of bones!

parker said...

Those girls make a fine team. Being the natural hunters they are, something across the pasture sure has their attention!

dr momi said...

They are checking over their kingdom -- cute.

Montanagirl said...

Love it! They're such good pals.

Woody said...

The simple pleasures in life - watching the girls who are just waiting to get into some trouble.

Paula said...

They are out early studying on what they can get into today.

Debbie said...

they are just too cute for words....always checking on what your doing!!

nice fence ;)

Karen said...

Such cute doggies, and a nice fence!

Dawn said...

Those are MY kind of dogs:)

Sylvia K said...

Nothing like seeing our doggies meditating as they greet the day! Such fun shots and they do seem to appreciate their world! Hope all of you have a great day! Wish you could send a bit of that wonderful sunshine up Seattle way!

Sylvia

Pricilla said...

Or maybe they are just enjoying the beautiful day...

Patrice said...

They're adorable. Have a very Merry Christmas, Texwis!BTW- Don't give Thelma and Louise any car keys- I saw the movie.:)

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Aw! Just precious. :)

IanH said...

Nice dogs! And what a fence!
Merry Christmas.
ps: Where's the snow?

polkadotpeticoat said...

Just Beautiful and the fence frames the picture perfectly....hehe!

bailey-road.com said...

They're so cute together, admiring the view.

Karen said...

Adorable... how'd you come upon two sisters needing a home?

Leenie said...

Hehe. Fun photos. Love their names. Love how they know how to enjoy a bit of sun...and the very nice fence.

Nature Rambles said...

So lovely!

grammie g said...

Hi Teresa...I hate to be the barer of this , but I have known and seen many dogs who love to eat the bird droping ( poop) lol...so perhaps that's the time the birds come to feed hahaha!!
Lets hope not ..cute just the same!

Sarah said...

My family used to breed catahoulas - not very many people around here know what they are!

We have one that looks similar to a lab (she is mostly black - no spots) - not very typical for the breed. Your two girls don't look typical either (they don't look very spotty). I guess that is the beauty of that breed - the dogs are so unique.

They are beautiful and they look so happy just staring at the fence!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Texwisgirl, Louise has great markings as well. Both are beauties! Good to have well-tempered ranch dogs. I have a friend up in OK who used to have a ranch dog of same breed as your two. Have a wonderful day today and enjoy those doggies!

Susan said...

Pretty sure it's that fine fence they are admiring! You crack me up!
Such beautiful dogs!

Κωστής Τζαγκαράκης said...

Beautiful sisters.
the names suit them.
Merry Christmas.

Reena Walkling said...

Love how they turn around and look at you. Looks like a great day!

Annette said...

Beautiful shots. Tell me you didn't set them there and tell them to stay. The composition is perfect.

Rohrerbot said...

Or maybe they're waiting for someone special to come home:)

barbara l. hale said...

Oh, the life of a dog! Terrific series of shots!

Gillian Olson said...

The dogs, the fence and the view are all beautiful.

Rose said...

They look like they are the best of friends...and if they are like the dogs we had as a kid...they are. Ours worked together when hunting...kind of fun to watch them.

Robin said...

T, Oh to be a dog and sit in the warm sun!
Was going to ask: forgive my geographic skills but is any of that big snow storm coming your way?

Jenny Schouten Short said...

Tee, What a beautiful frostful morning. It is a great shot of the girls overlooking your spread. I love looking at your posts. Merry Christmas. xo Jenny

Kay said...

They are beautiful.

Kay

don said...

They are great looking dogs...looking out across the fields...or at that fence. Either way, they appear very contented and enjoying themselves. Nice landscape shots too.

The Nature Jotter said...

I don't know if this dog are male and female, but this photo is so romantic! :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Somehow I don't think that the 'sisters' are watching the sunset or admiring the new fence... Maybe there's a pretty gal pooch across the way that they are admiring....?????

Hugs,
Betsy

Adam Tilt said...

Nice dogs and a nice fence!

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

a lil bita both, yep, a lil bita both! =)

Katie @Pinke Post said...

Peacefully admiring the fence I think! I am coveting the green grass I see. With no snow I'd like a little Texas warmth for our brown grass.

Sall's Country Life said...

If they're anything like my sisters they are complaining why somebody didn't put that blue bucket away "now it's in our way of a perfect sunrise,hhmmph!";)

Ms. Becky said...

wow, that's some really nice light you've captured. your girls are surround by glow. happy holidays to you Theresa.

Sandra said...

What a life! I wish I could spend a few hours with them under that tree... just to observe the new fence:))

AGATKA said...

And when you come this evening
Christmas tree decorated with candles
Let the white wafer as a poultice
Always heal the wounds of your soul
Let joy fill thy heart
With the hope proclaims what nursery
Let blissful singing carols
Thy mute concerns, worries
Let the words of thy cordial wishes
As the star will light up your neighbor.
And when it all come true
You will feel the message of Christmas Eve.

Sandy said...

Such a sweet, sweet shot ! They must bring you a lot of joy (o:

Julie G. said...

Such a sweet shot! They both look very content viewing the lovely scenery. I love this series!

Melodie said...

They look like they know all the answers....

Angela Häring-Christen said...

Perhaps, both of them! The sunrise and the new fence! Or they enjoy that you're making fotos of them.
Greetings
Angela

Candy C. said...

Beautiful girls! I'm sure it's the new fence they are admiring! :)

Staci at Life At Cobble Hill Farm said...

I just love these photos!!!

Michaele said...

Darling sisters! Wabbit watchers.
We need to get some red bows into your posts somehow. If the birds won't sit for it, maybe Thelma?
I love how they always look to see what you're doing and then carry on.

Lois Evensen said...

Looks to me that they are soaking up the afternoon sun. So nice. :)

heyBJK said...

Beautiful lighting! Once again, a dog's life.

joo said...

They are adorable!

Farm Girl said...

I have been going to tell you how much I like your new header. I am with your dogs, that fence is so pretty.
Your dogs look so content.

Cat said...

Now that is just downright adorable! There is something about shots taken from behind...children, dogs, whatever - I love them! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Giga said...

"Ranne ptaszki" z Twoich piesków - wschód słońca oglądają :-). Pozdrawiam .

Chatty Crone said...

They are so cute - hope they don't really run! sandie

mick said...

Great photos of the dogs. If that is really frost on the ground my dog wouldn't have ventured out of her kennel - and I doubt that I would have left the house either!

Farmhouse Style Living said...

What a pretty pair of sisters! I don't think me and my sister ever sat that peacefully under a tree! Oh to be a dog!

Deb said...

A sibling moment. How sweet.

It looks so lovely there! I would love to have a fence like that. :-)

~from my front porch in the mountains~ said...

They are gorgeous! What sweeties!

Love, love the new fence. Hmm...can Annie come over and play?!
Ha!
xo, misha

Carole Meisenhelter said...

looks to be one of their favourite spots judging by the 'pad' leading to where they're sitting. Looks like a great view from there; no wonder they're content to just be...

SweetMarie said...

This is one sweet photo! You know they are admiring the fence. It's even more beautiful at sunrise. :)

SquirrelQueen said...

They are a beautiful pair. I love the over the shoulder "check to see if we're missing anything" look. That is a nice fence to be admiring.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I think they're admiring the wooden fence and telling each other how glad they are that it's not a woven wire one they'd have to jump over! :D

Allison said...

:D Those two are inseparable...

BlueShell said...

LOVELY and cute...

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year full of peace, health and LOVE

bon bon said...

"Sisters, sisters,
There were never such devoted sisters,
Never had to have a chaperone, no sir,
I'm there to keep my eye on her..."

couldn't help but break into song when i read the title. ;o)

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

I think they are trying to decide which fence post they are going to cock their leg up on ;)

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

Oh wait! They are girls! HA! Dang it! I thought I had a good one there....I'll be back! Gotta go think of another good one haha
