Puppy Cuts Teeth

Hello Rusty. So you are cutting teeth and getting to know all the wooden pieces of furniture. Can't keep you busy enough with chew toys. I must find more from our last two Springer Spaniels. Grass tastes good, too. I play hard and sleep hard. I like my new life away from Kiln, Mississippi and my little sister. Wonder how that little girl's getting along?

We Have A New Puppy

He is all puppy! He is into everything and scouting out every nook and cranny of the living, dining and kitchen. He wants to chew newspapers and pick up doilies. He drops samples in the living room and hallway. Nasty. What does he know? He knocks things over and barks at nothing. He got our old dogs little stuffed monkey and assumed it as his own. This place is nice, he mumbles. I went from a dog house with wooden floors to a vinyl floor paradise. These new people are going to love having a vinyl floor. He eats and drinks his water. This place is nice, or did I say that already, he thinks. It is four o'clock in the morning.

Posted from the Dairy Farm

We found this old posted sign in the woods behind our house on our eight acres. The sign has lots of personality and isn't perfect which I really love.

Love the Sounds and Sights of Spring

Everything's blooming early this year. The azaleas are out. The plum and pear blossoms are lining the highway. It's going to be a beautiful spring if only a little early. Spring has come early with higher temperatures and a strong link to climate change. Check out all the spring buys at

He Was The Best Dog

We had to say goodbye to the Prince. He knew how to act in all situations. It was like he had gone to charm school for dogs. RIP, gentle Jake.
