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.

Happy Third Birthday Puppies!

Exhausted  new little family (Minty in the middle & Carly to the front right)
Three years old today.   Four little girl puppies made their appearance throughout that long long day.  Minty and Carly were the last two and were born within a half hour of each other.  Their sisters were hours older than they and Ashley was worn out.   

How the time has flown --my little puppies are already three years old, their mommy eight.  I didn't need three collies but they have blessed my life everyday.  All three different in their quirks and personalities but all three loving and devoted.  Smart as whips, but sometimes deaf, they keep me on my toes.  They make me laugh and smile and sometimes drive me a little crazy with their antics. 

I wouldn't have missed living in a collie pack for anything.  Happy birthday Puppies and Momma too!  (Hamburgers all around tonight!)

I think you and your sister should have a photo taken like the sisters picture (here). I'm just saying.

Happy Birthday to the prettiest and nicest of Collie girls. And to Ashley, Happy Birth-day too.

Tammy, Just read your comment and I say seek out another vet! You know your fur kids best, and so far the meds are helping enormously--only ONE inappropriate pee in over 48 hours, which is a new record for quite some time. Good Luck! Trish

So glad to see your post - I was wondering if you'd been snowed in for the winter! Happy birthday to your furbabies! I really can't believe that it has been three years!! T.
