ALERT, ALERT from Rosie!  My humans don't seem to realize it, but we are being invaded by chipmunks.  They are everywhere here in Breckenridge.  Here I was minding my own business (and a lot of other dogs' business) when these supposedly cute little critters come running by me, playing tag and chasing one another.  Don't they know they are in the presence of the Great White Hunter.  They stay just far enough away so I can't reach them because of my leash, but they taunt me.  One of these days........  I don't think Debbie and Frank would be very happy if I caught one, but I feel it is my duty to stop this invasion.  Well, I don't know if I could actually eat one anyway, but I could at least scare them away.  I will keep you posted on my progress.

Then, to top things off, last night about one in the morning I was sleeping in my bed in the window, doing my sentry thing, when all of the sudden I hear a big crash.  OMG, I look out and see a BEAR about the size of a Volkswagen Beetle.  He was scoping out the area and found our little cooler under Diva.  He opened it right up looking for goodies and then tossed it behind him when he found it empty.  I, of course, barked, and barked, and barked and scared him away.  My humans woke up and saw the whole thing.  It is a good thing they have me, or that bear may have opened the door and emptied out our refrigerator.  I have a feeling he makes his nightly rounds at this beautiful campground to see what the humans may have left him.  He knows right where to look.  But don't worry, faithful readers, I am here to protect and defend.  Of course, I am not getting much sleep lately.  In fact, I think I'll take a little nap right now....

  1. Hang in there Rosie, sounds like you did a good job and you should get a cookie.


  2. Thanks, Buddy, but be a real pal and suggest to THEM that I should get a steak. Can you get bear steak around here?

  3. Great posting! Must be bear season in the Colorado campgrounds. One gave us a visit this past weekend in Mueller State Park near Colorado Springs. Our "guard dog" was not nearly as vocal though and slept through the whole thing!
