  • Hens and dog again

    I just moved the Leghorn pen, the slow way, inch by inch, pull this side, pull that side, straighten that part, pull again … etc. I checked for eggs there this morning, much earlier, and noticed dirt next to the pen, and a hole right there. There were no eggs in the pen. Victoria had […]

  • The Dog and the Storm

    It’s raining very hard right now. It wasn’t raining awhile ago, but I thought I heard the rumble of thunder in the distant WSW. I looked at my accuweather email for the morning and it didn’t mention any thunderstorms. So I went online and looked at the radar and sure enough, there was a nast […]

  • Dog training in session

    These two photos are from the other day. Dog is now being trained to stay inside. Previously he has only been crate trained and stayed outside mostly, in his 10×10 corral and running free in fenced in backyard. So he’s new to the inside during daytime nice weather, not in crate. In these photos he […]

  • Turkey Aftermath

    Dinner is over, left-overs put away, some of the dishes washed, some not. 🙂 It was a hard afternoon. I didn’t get the turkey in the oven until later than I wanted. It took until after 5pm for it to be done. Then it had to sit, of course, while the stuffing was taken out […]

  • Gretchen Buried, and life continues

    We buried Gretchen in an old part of the garden. We had dug it out a few years ago, but it had all kinds of house building junk buried there, so we didn’t use it for veggies. I did plant wildflower seed there, and packets of particular flower seed, but nothing much grew and nothing […]

  • Gretchen and Lothar

    Here’s the latest photo I have of Gretchen and Lothar together. I don’t have one of her alone, or a decent shot of her as far as I know. What’s on undeveloped film is another thing though 😉 This was taken on January 19, 2004, the day after our new pullet had “disapeared” and so […]

  • Death. It’s what we expect

    My puppie died in the night. It’s such a beautiful morning, and she’s curled up in her outside basket with her head hanging over the side. My worst realizations came true. I was so tired last night, and could barely keep my eyes opened, so I could just kick myself for this whole thing, I […]

  • Dog Fight, or what?

    Oh boy, I’m freaking out. I asked my eldest to let the dogs out to go potty, as usual, just a bit ago — probably the last time for the evening. Seconds later, horrid barking and people screaming began, and Russell ran inside yelling that the pups were in someone elses yard. What to do […]

  • Friend or Foe, what it comes to

    Cats and puppies: A listing of friend or foe Cats – 6 Samantha — 11 year old petite black cat. Not interested in the puppies at the least. Princess — 11 year old big fat tuxedo [black and white] cat. Will watch the puppies from a distance, as long as the pups are in their […]

  • Puppies “First Walk”

    We took the puppies for their first “leash walk” this evening. Gretchen was fairly good with it, happy to do it mostly. Lothar was loath to do it. I walked him at first, and it was more like a steady pulling him is what I did. Frank took him then, and eventually Lothar did some […]

  • Our Puppies — Update

    Our puppies weighed 16.6 and 15.5 lbs respectively at the Vet, that’s female and male order. Gretchen is the female, and Lothar is the male. The vet estimated that they were about 9 or 10 weeks old, sticking closer to 9. That’s about what I thought, giving them up to 3 months, but thinking they […]

  • Dog Days of Summer –in November?

    It’s been hot the last week. Very “un-November-like” Add muggy to it yesterday and today, and understand that I might as well be in a jungle, minus the tropical zap. This kind of hot and humid just is icky and make ones cranky. We are without A/C now too, so that just makes it nearly […]
