Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: Day One — Dog and Cow Standoff

Dog and Cow Standoff

Welcome to my first post for the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. I was invited by Author SB Mazing to take part in this blogging event.

Dog and Cow Standoff

The Sacramento River Delta is home to a variety of recreational and leisure opportunities. In particular, Sherman Island is home to world-class windsurfing and kite-boarding. Some more details about windsurfing are HERE.

Much of the delta is prime pasture and agricultural land. In addition to a variety of crops grown, wine grapes have been a newer crop popular in the delta. Sherman Island is home to acres of pasture lands.

The Rio Vista Windsurf Association, a volunteer organization dedicated to windsurfing and kite-boarding, leases two acres on Sherman Island for six months each year. This area is surrounded by cattle pastures adjacent to direct levee access to the river.

On this day, as we were preparing to move in to the area, our dog Aero ran over to see something on the other side of the fence — cows! The cows were drawn to my little, brown, Cocker-Terrier mix. Aero appeared to stand his ground when faced with several cows staring him down. He seemed so brave and the cows were very docile and mesmerized by his presence!

Aero is a small dog with a big heart and a big bark! If you have a dog, give him or her a big hug today!

The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you. Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.

Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. And actually everyone can join in. So feel free to if you like the idea.
I would like to invite Doug Warren to join the party. As I said, it is totally up to each individual to accept this challenge.

  1. One very brave dog. I wonder if he would have run had they walked towards him? My dog, Toby, often has stand offs with cows, sheep, chickens and cats, but as soon as they come towards him he’s off in a flash.

  2. I had a cocker spaniel puppy run up to a horse and bark at the horse. The horse kicked her and it killed her instantly. It broke my heart. Just thought I would let you know that in case there are any horses and I’m sure cattle will do that too.
