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.

Puppies are one week old today! Phew. What a week. The littlest tri girl (that is her second from left) is down to being tubed about every six to eight hours and still continues to gain. She is up to 1 lb .2 Ounces (from 9.9 ounces). The others are like little ticks and the biggest one (the other tri) is about 1 lb 9 ounces.
There still remains the danger of Ashley accidentally stepping on or laying on them, but praying that doesn't happen.
They are much stronger now and are like heat seeking missiles when Ash steps into the whelping box. One of the Sable Merles is actually trying to walk already which is a hoot.
Anyway....I will try and get some individual pictures up, but they are so bobbley and will not hold still for anything. In the meantime, hope you enjoy this picture of sweet little puppy feet (and puppy bums too....)
