Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

You Can Never Have Too Many Toys.....

Especially if you are a big dopey Dogue who has a stuffed toy obsession.....



I can only think that his time of extreme doggy destitution has contributed to this.


Shown are his toys and one fence post insulator that he has commandeered--and these are not all of them by any means. Nothing is safe....most of my tools--including rakes and hoes have chewed handles. He also likes to chew on nails in the fence, the odd sprout and old 2 x 4's......



He is a good boy though, most of the time, even if he doesn't share well, and will strive to play with and horde all his toys so no one else can have them! Poor fellow has been deeply depressed acting when he has to go in his pen in the morning, instead of spending the day 'on vacation'. He still chases cats, so he can't have the run of the yard unless I'm home.

Boone also has his own 'fan club'--people just seem to really love him (or are scared to death of the big baby). He even has a lady who sends him toys and such as she likes to help out with rescues. The red toy in his mouth is from her, and she also sent two others, that I will ration out to him over time. :-)

I'm going to HAVE to get my friend to come over to see Boone's pictures. When I first met her many moons ago, she had a Dogue, in fact a nephew of "Hooch," movie star. Boone will bring back good memories....

Boone has a fan club because he is a total rockstar. ;) And yes, it occasionally looks like a stuffed animal graveyard when Boone's been around!
