Happy Birthday, Turk

Turk, our wonder dog, celebrated his 7th birthday recently, which makes him officially an old man. He got a cookie

which he didn't gobble. Apparently he's learning some manners.

He also got a cow. A couple years ago, he was affectionately named Turk the City Dog by our friend Ellen at Glory Farm. She seemed to think that he was at a loss on the farm, but clearly he was paying attention while he was there.

He immediately decided that any good Holstein should be de-horned.

He worked on one side and then the other.

Within 30 minutes, the cow was de-horned.

Maybe he didn't learn everything he should have. Instead of tagging the cow's ear, he just chewed them off, too. I'm not expecting the cow to last too much longer!


  1. Good boy Turk! We don't like cows with horns! Happy Birthday!
