Good Morning!

It's really been interesting watching the dog and dog and dog and flock dynamics change over the last month and a half.  June is very sheep oriented and enjoys sitting and sleeping near them.  Hank has always seemed to mostly prefer maintaining his own personal space.   

I don't really blame Hank.  He had a tough job being the first guardian dog this opinionated flock had ever had.  He got quite a bit of flack early on from some of the tougher personalities.  June was able to cash in on all of his hard work and with her calm, confident personality has settled the sheep even more.

This is where I found them this morning, soaking up some warm winter sun, sitting with their sheep.  I love how much more relaxed Hank is now.

"Oh, hi!"

"Whatcha got over there, Hank?"

Two. Good. Dogs.

Not Everyone Got Invited To The Party

Well, cats don't need an invitation...obviously ;-).

Poor June.  There is nothing she likes better than a party with cookies, crackers, cereal, pizza, sticks, big rocks, electrical conduit...  Hank can't believe he got locked in prison with her though.  Oh, the injustice...

Happy Birthday, Maisie!

That's Biscuit and Lila in the background.

"Yeah, it's mah birthday!"

"I get a whole Cheerios cake all to myself!"

(While wearing her birthday crown ;-)

"Hey, Betsy.  Glad you could make it.  I saved some cake for you."

"Um, thanks...I guess."

Who IS this calm, friendly looking sheep?

Biscuit was very confused about Maisie wearing a crown and getting all the attention.

Look at that face, peeking through the fence!

"That's a really cool looking crown, Maisie.  I thought only me and Muffin got to wear crowns."

"Should I show him what I do with stupid crowns?"

Yeah, that's the birthday girl we all know and love ;-D.

Don't feel too sorry for Biscuit and Lila.  Everyone got to celebrate Maisie's birthday.  More pictures tomorrow.

Take A Break

Today and tomorrow can get pretty hectic. Remember to take a break, catch your breath and enjoy.  

Eat some yummy leaves (and work a new puzzle :-).

And get a little exercise afterwards :-D. 

That's Bullwinkle leaping back to the barn.  I think he's trying to beat Biscuit and Muffin back.  Well, I know he's trying to beat them back.  I think it's because he's a little jealous of them.  Or maybe he's just enjoying the gorgeous weather the last few days.  I love that they are still side by side :-).

So much to be thankful for!

Keeping Honest Dogs Honest

Or keeping a puppy from doing a little freelance electrical work behind the barn ;-).  At least the first water heater wasn't plugged in yet when she "experimented".

Even though June is as big as a moose, she's actually not quite 8 months old.  Still a puppy.  The lightweight plastic tube covering the electric cord of the original tank heater was no match for her moose sized teeth.  Saint Tim's heavy duty metal and wire contraption ought to keep her honest...and safe :-).
