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.

Fall Pictures.....

The other night, with the leaves on the ground and green grass all around, I thought I'd snap some nice photos of the dogs.

Boonie was very agreeable (as long as there were treats involved), but I can't say the same for Ashley.

Here is Boone....What a good boy....

And here is the rest of the story.....

"Please, please don't tie me to this fence and leave me...please..I'll be good..." seemed to be Ashley's thoughts. Nothing like taking a picture of a dog that thinks she is being abused and abandoned. My memory card was full up anyway, so, so much for the 'photo shoot'. I do like that one of Boone though. It's seldom I get a picture of him looking right at the camera. (And yes, Ashley is blowing coat, and despite brushing and plucking she looks pretty ratty).

I'm off to get some things done outside. The SUN IS SHINING! What a wonderful, not often seen thing around here lately. I hope to get some mowing done (battery is on the charger now), hang out lots and lots of laundry among other things.

All the critters are enjoying the sunshine. The kittens are playing madly in their pen (despite the stinky flea treatment I put on them earlier), the chickens are sunning on the south side of the buildings, the sheep ran happily out to pasture, trying to be the first one to find new fallen leaves, and even the inside cats are following the patches of sun around. Nice....

Have a great weekend.

Love the pic of Ashley leaning on Boone! "Save me!" My, he is a BIG boy, isn't he!

Love his portrait, too.

He is one lucky guy to have found his way to you. :-) His story always makes me cry.

Most people wouldn't stop for a little dog who needed them, but to go back for this giant....... Talk about earning good karma.....

:-)

Thanks for stopping by 'orange' -- it's good to see your comments again. He is a pretty good boy and yes, he is pretty big. I'm used to him now, but at first it was a 'culture shock' on how big he was.

I love that mug. I love love Boone. Even when he slimes me, I forgive him instantly.

Ashley, is quite a looker.

I love the close-up of Boone! He's such a handsome boy! Ashley leaning into him is way too cute ... what a different in size between the two!!

Great pictures! And the sunshine is a nice change, for sure! :)

I just love Boone's face. And the way Ashley is leaning on him is perfect.
(Looking back at the comments, I see I'm not alone.)

I think Boone is the most awesome dog I've ever "known"! He looks absolutely stunning in that picture! GOOD JOB!!!

Poor Ashley....

;-)

That photo of the two made me laugh because it reminds me of the Beauty and the Beast set I now have, but the "beast" here is the smaller of the two....
