When the temperatures dropped, Dewey parked himself indoors by the fire and spent less time playing with Trick the Outdoor Cat.
And Trick is bored.
The young chicks have grown weary of his antics and no longer ruffle their feathers when he walks by.
And the lambs would rather hang with the older ewes now, instead of playing the Follow-the-Trick-Game.
But Trick still has Niki, the Border Collie pup.
I thought he would tire of her when she outweighed him.
But he takes great joy in stalking her until she engages in play.
I worry sometimes that she plays too rough with him.
He yowls and makes the most pitiful sounds.
And then he comes back for more.
While they're having a grand time entertaining themselves, I'm noticing that walks are taking longer and longer.
And the temperatures keep dropping.
