The Dog (Mr. Dozer)
If you come for a visit to The Homestead, you may never see Mr Dozer but he is our mascot upstairs in our living quarters on the second and third level of our place. Mr Dozer is an English Bull Mastiff and Rodhesion Ridgeback mix and at this posting in February of 2014, he is 1.5 years old.
He has been with us since September of 2013 and is a big lovable pile of fur. He is very gentle with all of our guests and especially loves to lick the ice cream off little kid's shirts in the summertime.
His favorite thing is to lay on our front porch and watch for chipmunks. Of course he never catches them but he certainly has fun trying. The chipmunks think he is a riot and tease and torture him all day long running in and out of woodpiles and chattering at him calling him names...
You may occasionally hear a bark out of him, especially when mom comes home from work.
If you visit and you would like to meet him, just let us know and we can make the arrangements. Otherwise, he will be upstairs looking for chipmunks.
