Yard Patrol

I've been patrolling at my new house.   It's a really Big job and  I may have to call in reinforcements.

Mr. Swan swims by about 5 times a day.   His girl is  nesting on da little island on da lake and he is pacing on our canal.   We don't talk.... he just gives me a dirty look and I just watch and den ignore him.  

Mom says that we should give him a name.  

What do you think we should call him?  
Mr. (No-name yet) Swan

Now.... Mr. Heron is another story.  

He come by and creeps along the canal bank and goes fishin'.   

I'm havin' none of him creepin in my back yard so I bark him right off his stilts and send him flyin'.

I think he is learning.  Lately, he only creeps on the other side of the bank to go fishin'.

Oh.... maybe we should name Mr. Heron too.

Dar are also duck that swim by but I just let them go, they are not being best.   BUT..... bunnies are another story.   I see dem running around on da other side of da canal and I scream at dem.    Stay tuned for more bunnies stories.

Maybe I should put on my Top Cop uniform and flash my badge so dey all know dat the Blogville Law Enforcement has come to town.

Gotta get back to my patrolling now.  



  1. You've got quite the new yard there Ranger.

  2. Ranger you should have a contest to NAME the Swan... That would be FUN...
    OMD Ranger you have a very much EXCITING new Yard... We are glad that you are getting thingys under control... it must be Exhausting... YES you should Flash your Blogville Credentials at those ... trespassers.

  3. Ranger! Your new place is chock full of interesting creatures and delights!!!!! You is sooooo arrrooooo lucky, hoot-man!! We is so jealous dat you have such a great place! We wants to sign up to be your reinforcements! We wants to investigate and snoopervise too! We thinks Mr. Swan should be called PapaSwan since he seems to be expecting babies. Mum told us she thinks she read sumwheres dat Swans mate for life, but she's not sure. Anyhoo, maybe Poppa or PapaSwan would be a good name since he may be a daddy every Spring for awhiles!
    Mum asked us to ask you what state you live in with that all dat wonderful nature and lake in your back yard--is it Florida? She things it is beautiful! We loves Mr blue Heron,too! You has it ALL, Ranger!
    Thank you for da great pictures and update! Don't work to hard Chief Ranger!

  5. You live in a very beautiful spot. I would love to see those birds swimming by everyday. We think the swan should be called Trumpeter.

  6. So many cool things to see at your pond

  7. Yes, you have to let them know who is in town!! We like the name Sven Swan.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  8. I think you should name him "Kismet's boyfriend".

  9. What a great yard. I agree with Frankie you should have a contest.

  10. We definitely think the critters in the area should know there is a Blogville Cop in command!!

  11. I think his name should be Taste Like Chicken. BOL

    Aroo to you,

  12. Crikey Ranger ..... you've sure got your paws full there, aye?? You must never get any sleep!! We've got a heron like that at our house. We call him Billy Heron. We have swans too but they are black and we have pelicans ...... BUT ..... you've got bunnies????????? Fair dinkum???????????? Oh my ..... I wish I lived at your house. I'd be over that fence so fast you wouldn't see me for dust.

  13. We think the swan is Mr Wilson and the heron is Dennis the Menace.

  14. Great Guard Duty there Ranger

  16. Maybe you can train Mr. Heron... maybe you can call him maybe Heron-ymous? ... that he brings you some fishies efurry day? I have a good name for the swan too... how about Swan-k?

  17. that is so pretty - we have an irrigation canal that runs along our property but it is not pretty like that. We do get ducks in it, mom loves to see the baby ducks.

  18. Isn't nature wonderful? Enjoy the view.

  19. Wow! Our yard is soooo boring compared to yours! I would name the swan Larry.

  20. I think the swan should be called Suwannee. Here Suwannee come here now.

  21. It is such a beautiful yard. Mom and Dad are getting a fence that looks very much like yours so I can safely go out in the yard and bark at the squirrels that live in the big Spruce trees that line the driveway. I can't wait! Have a happy weekend.
