Dogs and their helpful souls

Thursday February 22, 2018   People ask how the other dogs cope with a loss of one of their pack.  They definitely know what happened and they were very worried about Bodhi before we let him go. They were fine with that, probably even glad that we helped end his pain.…

Sunday January 14, 2018

Sunday January 14, 2018  Ed gave me a wonderful gift yesterday and did all the animal chores for me. Yes I do love being out in the barn and caring for the animals but to take a whole day to rest while healing was much needed.  My phone tracks my steps…

A very bored puppy

Wednesday January 10, 2018  The flu continues. Poor puppy Belle doesn't understand why mom is not taking her for walks and spends so much time in bed.  So she built a fort - I kid you not.  Next to my bed is a nest of pillows, dog bones, dog toys, one…

We’re Open Today!

Saturday December 16, 2017  It's our annual Holiday Open House today! We'll open the gates at noon - before that hour, we're scrambling to get animals fed and do other chores so we can visit with you until 4:00.  That's when we'll need to start feeding animals again.  So if…

Imaginary dogs

Tuesday December 12, 2017  When I was a kid, I didn't have imaginary friends, but I did have imaginary dogs.  I'd walk them down the street holding on to their imaginary leashes and I'd brush them carefully every day. My parents were great parents, but they just weren't dog people.  My…

Friday December 1, 2017

Friday December 1, 2017  Unseasonably warm temperatures continue for us today and although I know it's not what the ski industry needs, it's unbelievably pleasant working outside.  The alpacas are getting plenty of exercise as they wander about and I haven't even had to think about winter bedding in side…

Tuesday November 14, 2017

Tuesday November 14, 2017  It looks like we'll have a bit more time for winter preparations around here as the weather continues to be dry and mild.  I know the skiers are praying for snow but we can use the extra week or two.  The pastures need a bit of work…

Take a Walk

Friday November 3, 2017  One of the bonuses about having  puppy like Belle is that I need to take her on a walk every day. When she was just a teeny pup and the roads were so hot this summer, we did most of our walking in the pastures. And that…

Friday October 27, 2017

Friday October 27, 2017  There must have been some major tussling going on around the main cam station yesterday and I found it upside down and in the hay feeder.  I thought I fixed it but for now the only cam that is working is the outside one.  I'll have to…

Full Moon Follies?

Sunday October 8, 2017  I know the full moon was a few days ago, but the skies are still flooded with moonlight here and all of our dogs were quite active last night.  Do they see shadows, raccoons or skunks looking for a cozy place to spend the winter? Whatever…

I can see clearly now…

Wednesday September 20, 2017  It will be sunny and cool today, a perfect day for getting the pastures all cleaned up. Way back in the beginning I'd use the rake and shovel method and try to do it every day. Oy! That didn't leave much time for anything else!  Once…

Dogs and Alpacas

Sunday September 17, 2017  Jack has improved slightly on his steroid meds but we have to be very watchful of his activity and keep hoping for the best. I'm knitting a few more projects as fast as I can to have in the Yarn Barn and the place is startign…

Making Memories

Friday September 8, 2017  I was lucky enough to have some Yaya time yesterday when I got to pick our grandson up after school. Belle absolutely adores him and was so happy to see him. Of course the other dogs were too but she holds nothing back. lol  He helped…

Thursday September 7, 2017

Thursday September 7, 2017  The skies are still hazy with smoke from fires all over the west. Luckily nothing is burning close enough to threaten us at all.  Belle and I went to the Farmers Market yesterday and she did so well. She's learning that not everyone is going to…
