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.

Just Dogs

Just thought I'd post some old pictures of the dogs. Jody passed away two years ago. Ariel is now 11 and Boone looks a whole lot better than he did in some of these pictures. You can see how puppyish looking he was, even though he was still thin and his hair hadn't slicked down yet. Hope you enjoy.
Jody--just home from the groomer

Jody, just groomed. (That is sweet Salome the Himalayan just behind her)

Ariel, just home from the groomers (they went twice and hated it both times! ;-)
Ariel and Boone, checking out an interesting scent
Beautiful Jody and Boone, shortly before Jody passed on
The pack.... a couple months after Boone joined us.

Jody on the pond bank...kinda looks like a scene out of Lassie
Boone....lets play ball!

Good dogs, good days.

I can't imagine life without my dogs, those that are in my current pack and the ones that went on before. Looking at photos of my past dogs is always so bittersweet, but it makes me remember the wonderful times I had with them. Thanks for sharing!

I agree--the memories are bittersweet on past dogs, but I wouldn't have missed it for anything. Michelle---not sure I'm up for a puppy, and probably not another dog right now, but I just miss when they were young and strong and there wasn't so much worry about them. Thanks, Nancy! That is so sweet--I'll try and get a post up about who I'd like to nominate this week--looks like several folks have looked up Boone's Christmas post due to your link.
