Our lab mix has been getting acupuncture for a few weeks now and has gotten well enough, along with finishing his meds, that the acupuncture is moved to every other week. I would recommend trying acupuncture on your dog if he has any pain, hip, joint, or spine issues. It really seems to help. It’s not necessarily a cure, but makes our dog more … Read More Old guy…
It finally is starting to feel more like spring. Even though we like our winter walks when less people are out, we really enjoy spring ones where we can explore and see all the buds of spring. One place we like to hike is down by the river. Our Chase loves to walk in the river and go from rock to rock exploring. He … Read More SPRING ‘S RIVER
It’s been a long winter for everyone I think. With snow places it’s never been, or not in a long time, more snow then other areas are used to… for us the wind the last couple years is getting worse and that on top of the snow and cold just makes it miserable. But there it hope on the horizon… At least for us … Read More Finally a little spring…
The trouble with age is along with it, as we all know, comes more ailments. Our 12 yo lab mix is not doing well. A couple Wednesdays ago he stopped being able to get up and walk. He had been having hip arthritis issues and slips if he’s not careful. So off to the vet we went. Turns out he has a herniated disc … Read More Trouble with age
It snowed again this morning. When I got up it had already started. For our area we have had more snow, but in the last 5-10 years this is a lot in a row. Last week it snowed for 3-4 days in a row, but luckily this was a short lived storm and only lasted till lunch time. Supposed to have more later this … Read More Baby its cold outside…
Thinking of Christmas and things that were different and the same for Christmas 2020. One thing that never changes is our boys smiles at Christmas time when were are all together… They love watching the paper come off presents, seeing what is inside, the food treats they get, sniffing the gifts for them, getting a new toy, or just a different atmosphere for the … Read More Happy Blessing Boys!
One thing we love to do when it gets cold is go on hikes with the boys. Baxter is getting older now and can’t go far and we haven’t done much hiking this year with everything, but today after church we had a chance to. The boys really love exploring and being out. Despite Baxter’s limitations and the cold, we all had a good … Read More Winter Walk
I blinked and it is already fall. I don’t know what it is… being so busy, this virus throwing things a little wonky, or just the fact that every year seems to go by faster and faster… but a friend of mine texted me today to say Happy First Day of Fall and I was like “whoa it is already fall”! How did that … Read More Surprise It’s Fall!
How many of you can you relate to this? You have animals all your life and then once you get to be an adult you get your first animal that is all yours. Its a great thing, until down the road when you start to look at pictures of them and realize… They are frosty old. Then it is very real… you have to … Read More My Old Man
I said in my last post I would post about our chicken run we built for the baby chicks to be outside in, yet safe from predators like hawks. And it works we have had a hawk try to get them in here without success. We have also used it to separate chickens as needed like when they are minor sick or injured. Keeps them outside … Read More Growing and Learning
I know I have been gone for a long time. Had a lot going on, but not much blog worthy. A couple weeks ago I was at our family friends house and my friends dad presented me with the new little cuties…. So introducing our 8 new baby chicks. So if I sexed them correct we have 1 boy and 7 girls… This is … Read More Introducing….
