A day for the birds…

Today is sunny and bright… the flowers survived the winds and the chickens are out in the yard looking for food. The only problem is we were under a freeze warning last night and it is COLD today… Hopefully it will warm up so the dogs will go out and play. It would be a nice day to bundle up and go for a … Read More A day for the birds…

A visitor to our little farm…

Today we had visitors to our little part of the earth. Our friend and my husbands second cousin came over with her two kids. Her daughter loves our dogs and chickens and was so excited to see them. She especially loved to feed them…                       She also wanted to play in the yard and … Read More A visitor to our little farm…

Chicken coop, dogs, and life…

Today was the first nice day I had to be outside and work. The chicken house got a cleaning and I finished the new boxes for “the girls” (my Dad was helpful in this process as he had a lot of good ideas). “The Girls” ran around like crazy enjoying the bugs and other goodies that they could get now that the rain had … Read More Chicken coop, dogs, and life…

Dogs and chickens…

I am not really sure what our dogs first thought when the chickens were relocated to their yard home and were running around in the same space our pups spend time. Chase didn’t know if he should chase them, play with them, or run from them when they tried to peck him. Baxter on the other hand could care less he just wanted to … Read More Dogs and chickens…

There is no place like Home…

I am sure when we all hear these words we think of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy, and the yellow brick road. Today I thought of how true these words are for me coming home from our recent trip to Nebraska. I missed our dogs, chickens, my bed, and just being in my own space. I think the best part of being in your own … Read More There is no place like Home…

Brothers…

I was watching my pups today and again realized how much they act like brothers. The way they play, share, don’t share, and act… it’s almost human at times. My pups bring me such joy and love. It’s truly a blessing to have them in my life. I thought I would share this photo with you today as I took it recently while we … Read More Brothers…

New trick…

So I was bringing my husband home from the doctor… he is sick, very sick. He has a blood disorder that causes him to get more sick than most of us would with the flu. Anyways… I was driving down a back road and heard my back window open and saw Chase, our smallest dog, stick his nose out of the window. It’s common for us … Read More New trick…

Roy Rogers and Horses

Today I was walking through the living room cleaning and saw my husband had Roy Rogers on the TV. Now I don’t think he knew what he was watching as he was asleep. I remember as a kid watching reruns and wanting to ride a horse like Roy. Now if you know anything about Roy you know he has a trusty horse Trigger and of coarse a dog … Read More Roy Rogers and Horses

Tuesday…

It was another long day. I had a training at work that started before I normally go in on a Tuesday. Then I worked my normal hours after that, for an 10 hour day total. It was nice to get off and come home to my husband and dad at the table waiting on the chinese food I was bringing, so they wouldn’t have to wait for … Read More Tuesday…

Wish me luck. Today is also a day that I take Baxter my therapy dog to his Therapy Dog event … Read More Work in progress…
