Saturday we welcomed Betsy’s dog, Rowdy, a one year old border collie, to the farm. I failed to get a picture of Rowdy because he moved too fast! Bo, feeling like the resident male dog, and Faye being the little princess that she is, were both a bit put out having Rowdy join us but Biscuit and Sassy and of course Telly were ready to join in the fun racing around the yard. Since I have only one kennel, sleeping arrangements had to be improvised. Bo slept in the living room all week and Biscuit and Sassy are comfortable in their crates inside the kennel so that left Rowdy who had never visited before. I thought he could sleep in the screened porch but he protested so I slept on the porch couch with him on the floor next to me. For the person who asked if I put them in the barn the answer would be “no”; the barn is full of goats,chickens and geese. So you can see I really need another kennel and yard. I will never attempt to open a licensed kennel – I’m just a person who loves dogs and will “board” as many as I can in my house and 1-2 kennels for family and friends when they need to be gone from home. And I don’t like to leave home, so it’s perfect.
When I came out of the house this morning, these blooms welcomed me. Yup, my night blooming cereus has multiple blooms with more buds forming. It takes my breath away!
Before I left for church, Bruce and Cassie picked up Bo and by the time I got home again, Rowdy had left and Biscuit and Sassy’s dad, Ed, was here to get them. I had a 2 hour nap in my chair this afternoon! I needed it.
