Pic of my New BFF

Tuesday 25 February 2014


Mommy is on a waiting list for a baby goat. Two actually, they are Nigerians. The all grown up goats are much smaller than I am. Our big black cat Thomas weighs more that they do. Not exactly sheep but not poultry, I'll take them! Mommy is going to milk them. She says that a goat can pull a cart. It must be a very small cart! The Grandchildren have already named them. One will be "June" and one will be "September". If there is a third it is to be called "Chicken Face" (three Grandchilden, three names).
I don't know this goat and just borrowed the picture but this is what I think goats do all day. It must be fun to be a goat. I wonder if I can teach our goats to play ball?

I am a HERO

My days are spent as a chicken herd. I got this job full-time when I saved Mommy's chicken, "Be careful what you're good at, you're bound to repeat it" is very true.  It's not as bad as I thought it would be...lots of stuff to roll in, and I can bark all I want as long as I look up; always birds flying above and who knows one might be looking for a chicken dinner. My job is Chicken Guard and I'm really getting into it.

Kayak is my side-kick.  Now he sleeps much of the time and can barely hear me, or he is ignoring me.  Mommy is so very happy when she lets the chickens out and I run over and get into position.  The hens act like I'm their Mother and run under my feet a lot or worse sit on Kayak but he lets them until they try to get a treat out of our dish or even his paws, he draws the line there.

Looks like a herd of spinning wheels in the house...when do I get My SHEEP???

Sunday 3 February 2013


Looks like I'm going to be putting "sheep herder" on my résumé. Actually I think It will be GRAND, me owning sheep. I'm liking the sound of this much better that "Guard of the fancy pants Chickens"! Lately they have been taking liberties and riding around on my back. I don't like it and personally I do not care that their feet are cold and they are getting high centred in the snow.

Sheep even smell better. I think my ancestors would be proud of me when MY sheep come to our farm (Mommy says everybody "belongs" to me; my cats, my chickens, my husband Kayak, etc.) as I watch over them. We get them as soon as the barn is built, it is going to be hard to wait.

Today is sunny and cold outside and now I'm inside

It was sooooo fun sliding around on the ice today! Then inside we went and cooked wieners in the fireplace (my fav is wieners for sure). Then Mommy brushed me out (darn brrrrs) and had an idea to spin my wool. So now my underwear is being turned into a hat to keep Dad's head warm. I think he'll like it because he doesn't have much fur of his own!

The Backyard is Frozen, Lets GO FOR A WALK!

Today I was Determined to get us out on the lake for awhile.

Clearly, the ice is fine.

Come on you guys, trust me! LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT!!!

Now that was an incredible walk! Don't you agree? Let's go home now.
