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.

Heidi Jade--Revisited

Remember Heidi? If not click on her name to read her post. Heidi is my Dad and Mom's 'new' dog they got last year in July. She was a mess. She still is sometimes, but she is now their special mess. My Dad has spent umpteen hours working with her and she has come a long, long way. She may never be like 'other dogs' but she seems very happy and content in her little world, and that is what matters.

My parents got Heidi in mid July, and then the 'perfect storm' hit my place during the first week of August, and I neglected to ever post another thing about her. (Perfect Storm = Six newborn kittens AND a new Collie (Ashley) myself within two days time) Can you tell I'm still recovering?

If you'd like to read an update and see some lovely pictures of the new Heidi, click here to visit my Dad's blog. Enjoy!

Heidi has developed into a truly beautiful dog. You can tell that your Dad loves her very much. Thanks for leading us to her story.

She's looking great. So glad she got a family -- your dad is one of the good guys, I see.

Love the new header!

Love your new header. Very pretty.

Yes our dad is very special and super talented. (just my two cents)

Heidi is very lucky to be in their family. An animal's life in the hands of our parents is a life of love and luxury.

Thanks all... I guess you can't tell where I got my love for animals? (and my Mom is even worse! ha..double dose). Heidi is very happy, and looks great. Her yard is littered with toys (both legite ones and stolen ones..)
