In this post, we get a history lesson… from a couple of farming pooches from the USA, called Fuzzy & Boomer… Uncle Spike’s special Guest Writer for this week is Linda, from a blog I love to follow, Life on a Colorado Farm.

“The Adventures of Fuzzy and Boomer –
A Story from A Long Time Ago”

Boomer?

Hummmm! Yes!

Do ya think you are up for a little story?

Hey! Yeah, sure, Fuzzy! I’m always up for a STORY!

I’m thinking that you will be interested in learning a little bit about where we live.

Aaaa, okay. But Fuzzy, I know LOTS about the farm.

Oh, no not the farm. A little bit about this area called Delta.

You see a long, long time ago. Way before there were pioneers in this area we were a settling spot for nomadic tribes of Stone Age food-gatherers.

They came here to get away from meaner people.

Did they bring their dogs with them Fuzzy?

I’m sure they did, Boomer. I can’t imagine any group of people not having dogs with them. Why dogs are the workers of all types of people.

Oh, that’s true Fuzzy, I guess I sort of forgot.

Any these people are like Mom and Dad in that they settled on the mesa’s and plateaus and in the canyons all around what is now called Delta and Delta County.

Gosh, Fuzzy. I’ve never seen any of these people and their dogs.

No, Boom, you won’t — their whole tribe left our area in a HUGE mass exodus sometime around the end of the thirteenth century.

WOW! The Thirteenth Century. That IS a long time ago, Fuzzy.

Yes it is Boomer.

But we know they were here…we have lots of signs left by them — people nowadays call it Rock Art.

See this rock says—“Bring your dog and go this way…if you do you can find supper, which is a Big Horned Sheep.”

How about this rock, Fuzzy?

Hummmm — “Deer running away! Stop them! Call the dogs to help or we won’t get supper!”

Sometime after those people left, a new group of people filtered in and they brought with them horses.

See now they are putting horses in the news pictures —

Oh, look Fuzz, this one says:

“Grab a horse and ride. Your dog will lead the way.”

By golly, I think it does, Boomer.

Oh! Fuzzy…this one says “STOP!! LOOK OUT!
Poisonous bugs and scorpions live here!”

How about this one, Boomer –“Deer and antelope play here. Your dog will bring one in for dinner!”

There are chipped pictures of dogs everywhere aren’t there Fuzz?

That really does mean that dogs have been around since the beginning of people, doesn’t it?

I think dogs have been around for a long, long, long time, Boomer. A long time. I think dogs are everywhere and in every place all over the world.

That is a stupendous thought, Fuzzy! We have been here and there and all over the world.

And we still are Boomer.

Sigh! Double Sigh! That is such a nice thought, Fuzzy. I think the world is a much nicer place because there are DOGS in it!

Me too, Boom, Me Too!

FUZZY & BOOMER ON A LAZY AFTERNOON

written by: LINDA

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Screenshot_1_blogMy name is Linda Brown. I live on a farm in America, on the western slope of Colorado, in the high mountain desert. I’ve lived here all my life, hailing back four generations on my father’s side. Today I blog about our farm, the everyday activities that keep the farm going. I also write about my thoughts and dreams and goals, and about our two farm dogs (Fuzzy and Boomer) and their take of their life on our farm. I invite all of you to stop by and visit.
