Critters Visit the PugRanch

Here we are
 joining the ever cute and darling
Miss Rosy Sassypants
for the Flower Friday blog hop!
Unfortunately even though it is April,
spring is taking its time this year
and since we have no flowers to show you
we will show you some the critters 
that visit us here at the PugRanch

Mr Robin wondering why we have snow
 in the middle of March

He does look fat and healthy though


Dad discovered a rock chuck

 peeking out from a pipe 
that is behind our metal shed

Here he is on another day
making sure the coast is clear

Before venturing out and going to the neighbors yard!

This is our resident pheasant searching for some food 
during one of our March snow storms

 The last few years he has spent the winter 
hanging out in the willow bushes 
that grow along the canal that runs through
 the lower part of the PugRanch

He is quite the colorful

and handsome fellow!

Can you see our kitty friend??

He is in the Big Yard hunting for mice

The mice really tore up our lawn this winter 
so we are happy for his help 
in getting rid of those pesky mouses

 We also get a pair of doves
 that come back every spring

I was very friendly and told this one 
Welcome Back!

We are having a few days of rain now
Hopefully that will get the grass green 
and spring springing up!!

We are the PugRanch Kids

    That was a great idea to show fur and feathers where flowers were not!!! You have lots of different company and that is a fine thing. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. We loved seeing your critter friends. Thanks for sharing them with us.

  3. Oh my huggy puggies can I come play in your yard with your friends.
    A rock chuck and a pheasant OMCs what a purtty birdie.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  4. Poor Mr Robin. I hope he doesn't have to wait for spring too much longer! The woodchucks are out of hibernation here too and mom is NOT happy about it.

  5. No sign of spring our way either. We have some robins and a few doves, too, but still no green or flowers!

  6. We are snow covered in our neck of the woods with no flowers anywhere in sight.

  7. Uh-oh...maybe don't show your pheasant friend our Momma's new HAT for her Renny-sauce faire. Pheasant feathers...everywhere!

  8. What a wonderful variety of critters you have there on your Idaho pug ranch. I enjoyed seeing them.

  9. That robin sure is a fat one:) Maybe HE is a SHE with a tummy full of eggs:) Lots of interesting critters there. We never heard of a rock chuck. And you say the mice tore up your grass??? Hmmm, maybe we should try convincing Mom that the mice did it here too:)

  12. WOW! Action city! We had snow today in New England.
    Enjoy your spring!

  13. You have quite a menagerie around your house! Ghostwriter says she hasn't seen a pheasant in many years. We enjoyed seeing your colorful one! We hope the kitty cat doesn't catch him.

  14. We love the birds but that road chuck really scared us. I hope that thing is not living there

  15. What beautiful critters you have visiting you!! We love the colors of the pheasant and OMD...did you get to bark at the Rock chuck??

  17. Awe them are some cute critters ya'll has in your yard. I don't nose if I would be able to contain my excitement if I saw them in our yard though ;) BOL

    Matt (& Matilda)

  18. Since it's not turning green fast enough, it's great to have those critters to look at, and there sure are enough!

  19. We love looking at your visitors!! Look at all of them!
    We dont have very many,,, but some swallows did come back!
    Beautiful photos of all of your visitors!

  20. That sure is a lot of critters to keep you on your toes.

  21. A rock chuck is a new critter to us and it is really cute! Does it tear up your yard? We'd welcome all of those creatures in the yard but only to chase them back out! BOL! BOL!

  22. Wow! Those are some interesting furry and feathered friends in your neighborhood! That pheasant is really cool - I've never seen one before. Hope you all get some spring weather (and spring flowers) soon!


  23. I love your critters! Rock chucks are fun - are they the same as marmots? And, I didn't know that mice could tear up a lawn. Wowzers. They are pests!

  24. We would love to bark at all those critters fur you. That would be fun!
