Our boys are very attached to each other. Chase especially with Baxter. Often if Baxter goes in another room for too long or Chase goes out with out Baxter, Chase will go looking for him. Baxter is a little more independent, but once in a while you’ll see him wanting to be close to Chase. Like the other day. Chase was laying on the … Read More Brotherly Love
The wind finally calmed down which allowed the boys and I go on a nice longer walk. When we got home they got their dinner and this is how they have looked since then… I think I wore them out. Even Grayson got in on the action (or lack there of) and he didn’t even go for a walk. I guess my play time … Read More Sleepy Time
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!
We had a few good days of beautiful weather… then the rain, wind, and cold came back. It was so nice to be able to go out with the boys (dogs) during this time for almost daily walks. They have loved it and I have been feeling better being able to get out walking more. Baxter is getting hip dysplasia so we can’t go … Read More Ready For Spring
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
Last September we were able to go to the lake for a little vacation with my folks. It was actually one of the most relaxing vacations since our honeymoon over 10 years ago. Our boys came. Our lab/healer mix wanted nothing to do with the water or boat. We barley got him on the double decker dock. Yet our terrier mix Chase absolutely loved everything … Read More Memories of September
It’s official… we have a fox 😦 We have been pretty lucky here that predators usually stay away because the dogs are in with the chickens off and on all day and until bed time). The smell of the dogs and us usually keep them out of the fenced in area we have for the dogs and chickens. But not this fox… Sunday night we … Read More Sad News
Been a busy week around our place. Chickens are happy and hopefully laying more on a more regular basis. The dogs and cat are happy with more sun than rain. Flowers were enjoying the rain and are blooming like crazy now in the sun. Got a fun comment on my last post from the UK, its neat to learn about other areas of the … Read More Flowers and Fun
The last 3 days it has been so humid that when I go out to take care of the animal or work in the garden I come back in looking like I just stepped out of the shower. The chickens are lazy and not laying eggs much. The dogs are lazy inside… Not the dog days of summer because the dogs don’t like the … Read More So humid… animals not happy… people not happy either
