Meet the dynamic duo of tagalongs that love to hang out at the ranch - DoDo and Pee Wee. They actually live in Sedona and are only around the ranch during the day.

First there is DoDo, the smiling Coonhound. DoDo is also the gatekeeper of the truck. He takes his position in the drivers seat whenever I hop out. DoDo won’t let me back in until I give him a hug and a kiss on the head.

DoDo found the right home, one where he can kick back and enjoy life without fear of repercussion for his many debacles. DoDo is a powerhouse of muscle. The only problem is he hasn’t quite figured out how to harness all that power. He has knack for jumping, oftentimes miscalculating propulsion, and overshooting landings. On one such occasion, he miscalculated his leap from back to front seat and ended up doing a swan dive into the radio, thereby resetting my half-finished audio CD Vital Information and Review Questions: The Night Before Exam from questions 355 back to question number 1. Could you stay mad at a dog with that goofy mug?

Pee Wee, also known as Bridgit the Midgit, is my beautiful little Corgi. This pint size pup keeps her brother DoDo in line. Pee Wee has incredible strength and speed for such a little dog. One of my favorite things to do is call her when she is on the other end of the arena. I tell her to run like the wind and she comes sailing at full tilt, little clouds of dust popping up behind her as she blazes her way across the arena. One time, I was watching one of those low budget foreign films with some guy yelling, “Run like the wind” to his friend. The film was so bad I kept asking myself why am I watching this and then just kept watching. Anyway, I guarantee that watching Pee Wee run like the wind is a whole lot more entertaining than watching that stupid movie.
