Don’t Look Back 2017

I was going to do a recap of the progress on the farm this year, but, the year was so awful I quit. I could hear the Country Blues band striking up their instruments and the song going like this:

We were flash flooded three times and the pond blew out…    da-du-da-dunt

Two cows died and the twister knocked our trees about…     da-du-da-dunt

My favorite computer crashed-the mother board is fried….  da-du-da-dunt

My best friend and neighbor- she just up and died…        da-du-da-dunt

A guy sold me a car he did not own…

Now I got to chew on him like some old bone…      da-du-da-dunt

We had to toss a renter to the curb…

’cause he liked expensive wacky herbs…    da-du-da-dunt

An idiot wrecked my car, the fools…

Yet another jerk,  stole my tools…   da-du-da-dunt

When you think it can  get no worse…

Taxes raise and  I got to handover a horse!    da-du-da-dunt

The cow prices are too low to sell…   da-du-da-dunt

My stallion was injured and struck the reaper’s bell…     da-du-da-dunt

The fox and coons wiped out the hens…  da-du-da-dunt

A coyote has the goats scared in their pens…   da-du-da-dunt

A hawk flew in and got the cat…

who would have even thought of that!    da-du-da-dunt

At least the hubby finally found a good job…

but the rest of this song makes me want to sob!    da-du-da-dunt

On the bright side mother  decided to stay…

and I found strength in God and learned to pray!     da-du-da-dunt

I think we’ll end this blues with a loud: “Hallelujah!”

Then a mumbled:    “Five more days and this year is over!”

We are “alive and kickin'” as my friend Mary would always say when I would call. I sure do miss the ole girl and I know she would have loved my song.  Sure hope 2018 starts off better.  Five more days. Five more days…

 

 

Great Dane Puppies- our first litter leaving the nest

The Puppies will soon be off to their new homes.

I will be sad to see these wiggly balls of fur leave the farm. It is so hard to not get attached to them. Babies are the funnest part of daily life. It is the new life Spring brings which makes it my favorite season.

The pups have gained little personalities. They are tugging on each others ears and tails. Charlotte, the largest pup, plunges fearlessly into everything. Minnie, the smallest, holds her own with ferocious baby sister growls. Winston, the nearly solid blue male, sits and watches over the puppy pile. Samson, the blue mantel, is a happy go lucky fellow. PJ, the Merle mantle, is adorable in his spots and might have blue eyes. Gunner loves to sleep on his back with his paws up in the air. Daisy, with her spotted black nose, is the first to be up and knocking over her sister Heidi and her brother Jeremy. Gertie, with her sideways patch running down her nose, is not far behind chewing on whatever tail comes near.

While they grow we are having the joy of watching them gain a quarter pound a day or more. It is amazing how quickly they transform from helpless grunting fuzz balls to wagging-tailed mini versions of mom in such a short five weeks!

It is so adorable to watch them sleep…

And eat…

And play…

 

PJ found a loving home in Pittsburgh with a nice couple.

 

HEIDI GUNNERGunner has found a family in VA who had just lost their Dane. They had him spoiled before he got in the car.GERTIE DAISY CHARLOTTEWINSTONJEREMY

Winston found a home with a local couple that just love him to pieces. They renamed him “Gunner.” He has two adopted siblings, a Yorkie and another Dane, to keep him company.

Samson is living locally with a family that are also friends. I will get to see him grow over the years which is a neat experience. They renamed him “Cochise.”
