a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Rooster Cogburn

Enjoys a tomato
His right eye is blinded
but manages with one eye just fine.

Rooster Cogburn sings his epitaph
I can endure much but not that
Since a quarter to three
He's crowed constantly
Water boils in the chicken vat!

Seriously RC is still improving.  The dogs take turns protecting him. My sister brings him treats and I keep him well fed.  He is only brave enough to crow after dark when the ruffians can't find him.

Today I heard Lizzy's sharp bark.  
This is what I found.
Lizzy was politely telling RC that was her food.
I got the "Gee, Mom, this is my bowl!"
 Lizzy finally gave up.
I wonder if she will protect him tonight?

I had to read this as i too had a rooster called cogburn
He was a lovely red rooster and huge
He was also blind and as gentle as a lamb....he lived in his own run and would walk alongside me following my voice

He is a handsome fellow!
Poor Lizzy, there is not many dogs who would put up with that.

Poor Lizzy! Dogs are usually forgiving as long as the Rooster didn't eat all her food:)

Thanks so much for sharing RC and Lizzy as part of the Tale Weaver's prompt.
I enjoyed the story and pictures. Lizzy reminds me of a dog friend I once had.
