Making Dreams Come True


And then . . .


We went on a walkie the other day and all of a sudden Stanley's nose dropped to the ground.


It has always been Stanley's dream to ride on a buffalo.  I always assumed he'd never get the chance so I didn't try to talk him out of it. 


 But he was determined so off we went.


We came upon an elk.  It was our first elk ever.


Since we saw an elk I thought perhaps Stanley really did smell a buffalo so I was sort of nervous.


I thought maybe getting a second opinion might have made Stanley reconsider but he was more determined than ever!  Then he came upon something and pulled dad off the trail.


Suddenly he wanted to jump the fence!  I shouted "What the dog?"


I ran over and saw what he was looking at.  I was ready to get out of there!


Then I heard Stanley ask the buffalo if he was in the movie "Dances With Wolves?"


Next thing I knew he pulled me over the fence with him!  Those buffalo are giant!


I was scared butt he was picking out one to get on!  


I had no choice butt to back up my brother cuz that's what brothers do.


That ol' buffalo never did stand up so eventually we jumped back off.  At least now Stanley's dream came true!

Hey Doods!
Wow, that's so cool! My peeps have seen elk near my territory, but I never got to go along. I don't blame you for jumping right on there...you only live once, so make it an adventure! BOL Glad he didn't buck you off or anything. Gosh, you were both so brave...bareback even.

Wow, what an adventure! And they sure do look big. I saw some buffalo a few years ago in Italy. They were all ladies and the milk they produced was used to make mozzarella. But they were very big as well!!

Wowzer we are so glad you finally got to ride a buffalo even tho it was lazy and you just got to stand around on him, it was probably much safer that way...............stella rose

So glad your dream could come true. When Lady was a kid, her family travelled West. They were in Yellowstone park and Lady's sister, Aunt C was scare of the buffalo. Maybe she didn't know you could ride them!

Wow is all we can say. We have farms around here that raise Buffalo and also there are some Yaks that live on a ranch close to us. You two are certainly brave.
Happy Friday!

Oh, awesome! We have buffalo around here, but then we're in Kansas. They're like our state animal or something. I don't know. I was born in Missouri.
That whole "Dances With Wolves" movie was a big disappointment to me. Where were the wolves? They didn't show ONE! Ha-rumph!
