  • I knew that bird feeder was trouble.

    Shoulda chased off that people bird. Now there are two!

    Shoulda chased off that people bird. Now there are two!

    Two birds equals a bird home. I may only be nine months old, but I’ve figured out that much. There’s a bird home in the flowers on the front door, over Sedona’s stall, in my favorite tree. Now Annie tells me they move in little birds. Today the people bird showed up with another one. […]

  • Mr. Wire bit Sedona!

    Wingman and Sedona give Mr. Wire his distance.

    Mr. Wire bit Sedona! The fence goes on forever, but I can’t find an end to that tiny silver snake Mommy calls Mr. Wire. He is wrapped around and around all over the fence. I learned right fast not to touch him ’cause he bites so quickly you don’t even see him move. Sedona forgot […]

  • Three kitties can’t be everywhere.

    Mouser Dillon and Miss Kitty act nonchalant until the puppy is alone.

    Three kitties can’t be everywhere. No more sniffing anywhere dark. My nose was scratched under the furniture, beside the hay, under the tablecloth, under the closet door, around the corner of the stall. Next time I smell anything remotely kitty I’m running for Mommy. She has to do something!

  • I’m leaving ‘possum roundups to Annie.

    Llamas sniff for the "giant possum" that tore down their pen gate.

    I’m leaving ‘possum roundups to Annie. Nice weather so the llamas are turned out in the big pasture. That means Annie and I can catch possums after dark. They waddle to the feed droppings around the llama pen and we drag them to the driveway. We’re careful not to hurt them and they sit real […]

  • Spring cleaning sure is tough to watch.

    Emily Gilmette, DVM, waits for Edwards to awaken after she made sure he won't be making llama babies.

    Emily Gilmette, DVM, waits for Edwards to awaken after she made sure he won't be making llama babies.

    Spring cleaning sure is tough to watch. I’m tired just thinking about all those loads of hay and shavings shoveled out of the barn. Mommy says the llamas don’t need the big stall extra deep in hay. There won’t be any more llama babies unless we rescue them. I made friends with Edwards, the young […]

    College must be fun. Mommy says she spent ten years perfecting pizza pop tarts. A whole lifetime! It was worth it. Had my first pizza bone today. Yummmmy! Every couple of weeks there is a new kind of bone: the dog food house bones, the people food house bones, steak bones from the grill, crunchy […]

  • Do doggies dye their grey fur?

    Liebe worries about the grey on her neck.

    Do doggies dye their grey fur? I learned a new word yesterday. Dye. Mommy was getting little grey tufts that match mine. I thought they were cute. I’m black and sable with little grey patches. Then she visited Beth and came home with light fur all over her head again. Annie says Beth dyes the […]
