Jackson, the dog, has become predictable.
We have to tether the dogs at night to keep them from chasing deer, elk, coyotes and hundreds of other night prowlers. When we unhook Jackson from his chain, the first place he visits is the pear tree where he grabs a fallen pear in his mouth as he runs by to the pasture for his morning bathroom routine. He holds the pear gently (drooling out both sides of his mouth) as he takes care of his business, then runs and jumps into the back of the John Deere Gator to eat his delicious fruit.
The smacking noise he makes while eating makes the fruit sound absolutely heavenly. Once he is done with the pear, he is ready to start the morning chores by helping to feed the cows.
