first trip to the field with alex was a success. we camped,
just alex and i. if she weren't such an outstanding watch
dog i'm not sure i would have had the courage for solo
camping so close to the AZ/MX border.
as it were, i didn't worry at all. we slept in
the back of the truck (camper shell) and alex woke every
couple hours. very quietly she would sit up and
look out the windows for about 10 minutes, then settle
back to sleep. never a false growl or bark, she was
confident and brave. she knew exactly how to do her job.

first in field

alex went to Las Cienegas National Conservation
Area with me to monitor the recently transplanted
black-tailed prairie dogs. her first trip to the field,
she's a natural and a stellar guard dog.

rock hound

alex loves to play with rocks. at first I thought it was limited
 to one particular rock I discovered her playing with, but 
then she brought in another, then another, and another. 
or maybe she's slowly working to bring the 
backyard inside; which would explain all the sticks 
and bark she's always bringing in.
