It’s bee a while since I’ve been here. Lots of happenings have kept me away. Let’s see… Illness, unpacking, more fencing, bad weather, more bad weather, great weather, gardening, colic, tornado, injury, new family member… I think that’s about right.
I never did find my battery charger for my camera, so I bought a new one. Bad Pants finally unpacked the card reader. So, this is mostly a picture post catching up on things.
Roxanne's attempt to "unzip" herself, mostly healed.
Wearing Daddy's t-shirt to keep her stitches and my floor clean- this was earlier than the first pic, as she still had her drain tubes in.
New living room set we purchased right before Rox unzipped herself.
Dude's dye-free, completely from scratch gingerbread house.
Pasture space upon move in, and garden.
Pasture space, run-in and ponies March 2012. Note the front paddock and run-in were all the builder provided for 4 horses.
One of the cleared piles ready to burn on move in.
Builder's version of "burned" burn piles.
Shingle damage to the cottage from the storms.
This guy showed up on Feb 29 while Sugar was colicking. We've had no luck locating his owners.
He's a redtick coonhound, which are apparently a dime a dozen here in the South. No microchip, no response to my ads, no lost reports with AC. It was suggested by the vet that he was probably dumped, as that's not uncommon in our area.
He's about 18 months old, really well-behaved, clearly has had some training, doesn't dig or jump fences, is good with other dogs, and mostly good with the cats. He's very friendly and housebroken too.
So, we're keeping him. He's adopted Dude as his person. We've named him "Bob" or "Bobby", depending on the day. Soon he will be scheduled for a neuter, microchip and vaccs. He'll never be a stray again!
