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…

Friday September 15, 2017

Friday September 15, 2017  We're finally getting a lovely soaking rain. This will be perfect for the grass seed I spread around some bare spots in the pastures yesterday. One more week and we'll be opening our gates to the public, we like to have things looks spiffy here. :)  We…

Alpacas meet Belle

Friday, July 21, 2017  The alpacas were much better around Belle close up than at a distance. Once they could see her closely, and sniff her a bit they were mostly curious. Of course the fact that I was holding her made her not a threat. The guardian dogs were…

Belle’s first day

Thursday, July 20, 2017 Belle's first day at Blue Moon Ranch couldn't have been better. In keeping with her socialization training, we went to the Park City Farmers Market and she rode happily in her red wagon, accepting pets and praise from so many people. The house dogs accepted her into…

Our newest addition 💕

Wednesday, July 19, 2017 I wasn't looking for a puppy. But as is the case with many of our dogs they seem to find me even when I'm not looking. (just ask Chief or Charlotte) I was and still am grieving for the loss of our sweet Newfie Matilda. No more…
