new addition

Daisy made her first appearance here in January. She waddled up the road from who knows where to take us in as her own. There are some really ignorant folks who will dump their unwanted dogs and cats along the roadside. I would like to beat the tar out of them but in this case I’m grateful.

She is a typical puppy pain in the arse. Our two canine veterans, Biscuit and Sandy, have allowed her to come into the pack, although reluctantly.

She has been introduced to the chickens with her being somewhat uninterested and Stan didn’t really pay her a bit of attention. She wondered around under him and came face to nose only to be snarfed by an equine sneeze that sent her for a roll.

Katy has had a blast with the pup. Their levels of energy match perfectly.

Katy and Stan have been getting to know each other better through some riding lessons. We were so fortunate to have found such a great horse for her. They have been working out together at a local indoor arena with a very patient young lady that has Katy eating out of hand for more knowledge.

Katy doesn’t have a clue how lucky she is to have such a cool headed horse. He is very tolerant
of her heavy hands but isn’t a dead head. This old guy still wants to run.

I’ll have to get some updated pics of these two soon.

This was taken late last summer. It was the first time Katy and Stan meet.

    Glad to hear that you are all enjoying the new pup. We found a ~1.5 year old Rotti-mix on our property a couple of weeks ago. He was not aggressive but was quite skittish. That, the fact that he was still intact, as well as our two dogs being more than enough (for me at least), meant we took him to the local ASPCA. Glad you are able to share your home with Daisy.

    Nice of you to take the pup in. We are the dumping ground for dogs and cats. Like you I would love to get my hands on the people that set them out. Daughter looks perfect sitting on her horse!

    What a cute puppy. We haven’t had a dog in a few years and are thinking about having one again. Probably after we move.

    Thanks ya’ll for the kind words. I truly find it is easier to have more than one dog. Especially when they are staggered in age, they tend to train each other.

    She’s so cute! I love the black on her face with the light golden hair. You can see the mischievous look in her innocent puppiness!…is that a word?…
