Farm (puppy) Friday 08.17.2018

This Farm Friday is brought to you by puppies! Nellie went to her new home yesterday and the puppies began their trip to their new homes in Maine! We loved having them with us for the 6 weeks and 5 days we had them! But I’d be lying if I said I was going to miss picking up poop for 7 puppies.

 

From the day she set foot at our house, Quila has been the perfect dog. She behaves well. She never has accidents. She is good with other dogs. She’s a bit protective of me. She is the BEST puppy dog aunt on the planet! She does as good as any mama dog at teaching puppies what behavior is OK and what isn’t. We adore our Quila girl.

Samson the pony is really good at Civil Inattention. Meaning, you can be in the same room as him and he will pretend you aren’t there. He mastered that skill even more with the puppies!

Christian was going to show Samson who was the boss! Samson couldn’t get away from that small furry thing quickly enough.

 

 

Before embarking on their journey the puppies had to visit the vet for vaccinations and health certificates. At first they were scared. Then they played. And finally, they passed out.

On their last night with us we let them play to their hearts’ content. We knew they had 4 days of being in a car ahead so wanted them to use up some of that puppy energy. Well,┬áKately spent about 15 minutes in Jaguar’s stall playing in his feed pan while I mucked stalls. Silly puppy!

Feed pans are for playing.

 

As I write this post the puppies are making their way across Tennessee. I’m grateful that the rescue is keeping me included in the communication with the transporters. They all seem to be eating, sleeping, pooping, drinking and tinkling well! Safe travels little cuties!

I can’t believe July is nearly here! This summer is brutal so far with high temps and little or no rain. I REALLY hope we get some rain sooner rather than later.

Enjoy some funny farm pet pics!

 

I could start a series consisting entirely of Betty’s funny sleeping positions. This is the most relaxed Beagle in the world! We just love her! If you’d like to adopt Betty click here.

Murtagh always waits for me to fill the hay soaker, then he jumps on the bucket or the dry part of the hay to drink the hay water. He’s a weird kitty!

Hot summer days make for a thirsty kitty.

 

 

If you follow my social media you’ve seen posts of our new foster dog, Nellie. She is about to pop with puppies! She visited the vet on Tuesday and they estimated she would deliver in 24 to 48 hours. We are now on day 4……… I suspect they will arrive this weekend. We appreciate prayers for an easy and safe delivery of healthy puppies!

Nellie!

 

 

These two are obsessed with Edith, our cockatiel. I think their faces are so cute how intently they are staring at Edith.

Happy weekend! Coco is going to yet another little horse show this weekend. Hopefully she behaves better! What are you getting up to this weekend?
