Gone To The Dogs

Buck in front and Little Bit. They are only 9 months old and as big as their daddy
Saturday was the Flock Swap and we did really well. Sold 7 baby bunnies, 12 dozen eggs, and our last 2 puppies of Tinkers. They are 9 months old and well trained with the goats. Little Bit, the girl went to D Goat Farms and from the pics on their facebook she is in heaven. They have 30 goats and as well as children who enjoy playing with her. Buck on the other hand went to a small goat farm that we thought would be perfect for him. He loved the family, especially the grandchildren but hated being away from Hidden Haven. Whenever they put him in with their goats he would attack them and their pig. They put him in a pen by himself and he broke the gate and got out. He wanted to stay inside with them and he has never been a inside dog. In fact he had never been outside the goat pens. Well we got the call this afternoon and William went and picked him up. He is home and back in the goat pen where he thinks he belongs. Don't know what we will do with him. He is such a good guardian dog for our herd. Doesn't bother the chickens and at the Flock Swap sat right beside the bunny cage and never bothered them at all. We already have Falcor so don't need another male dog and we have Tinker and Bella (who is due to have puppies any day). So Buck is in the goat pen. Bella is inside waiting to go in labor. Tinker is inside as she got her collar hooked on something last night and couldn't move to her doghouse and got chilled. She is feeling lots better but is pushing getting spoiled a little too much. Of course wherever Tinker is Tramp has to be so he is inside laying next to her. If I make him go outside he stands at the door and barks. Rusty has no idea why he has to share me and is sleeping under the diningroom table. Whiskers the cat decided it was safer to sleep on top of the fridge away from all the dogs. Me, I am getting my stretching exercises by stepping over 4 dogs every time I need to move. I can only imagine the fun when we add Bella's puppies to this circus. Guess I better take them all outside for potty breaks before I go to bed. Maybe I should change Hidden Haven Homestead to Hidden Haven Dog Pound. Have a blessed week everyone!

Busy as usual for y'all. I thought the flock swaps were only during Spring and Summer. I should keep up.
