We were fortunate to be able to spend last weekend at our favorite vacation spot, Seven Oaks Ranch. Cabana and I went there last month, but this time, our whole family went--my husband, both daughters, Cabana and me. My best friend and her husband also joined us, which made the experience even more fun.
But later, we saw the same brash male turkey, followed by 3 females, coming back toward the house. I could see him through the sliding glass door, parading proudly, again with his tail feathers displayed. He came right up to the sliding glass door, gobbling loudly. Cabana came over to see what the commotion was. She saw the turkey through the glass door and growled low. I had NEVER heard her growl for real before, only play growl when playing tug-of-war. She growled again and then let out a big bark. That silly turkey put down all his proud feathers and "hightailed" away up the hill, retreating even faster than his 3 girlfriends. I was amazed and so proud to know Cabana can be a guard dog when we need one.
Garth Riley, who is a therapy and reading dog, like Cabana. He is a handsome guy and recently placed in the Mango Minster competition. We voted for him, as did many others, in the Adventure Animals category. Congrats, Garth Riley, and thank you for the award! I hope someday Cabana will be as accomplished as you!
