I don't usually post family pics on my blog and I'll probably end up deleting this one but here's me with 3 out of 4 of my boys on Mother's Day. The white haired cutie is my hubby Bobby and he's holding our youngest grandchild who had fallen asleep. I thought this pic was so funny because it looks like Bobby and I are both falling over! (Those boys wear us out!)We had a wonderful outing at the University of Idaho's lovely nature park- the Arboretum. Then we all went out to eat afterward. It was a fun day.
My sweet, adorable, adopted Chiweenie grand puppy killed 2 of my chickies yesterday! BOO-HOO! I was here alone and should have been watching her better. She found a little hole in the hen house and I came upon her after she had killed one and was in the process of killing another. I was afraid I was going to have to finish off the one but thankfully, it died on it's own. So sad! I slept late this morning and I still feel so traumatized.
That, my friends, is the reality of farm life... Sigh...
When we had chickens years ago, we had a opossum get into our chickens in the night but never a puppy! And here, we were worried about the coyotes but not the puppy. You should see how sad Butters looks today! She may have been following her instincts, but she definitely feels guilty! We won't be replacing the chickens until we can make our hen house more secure. Thankfully we at least have one left.
Life is a mix of good and bad- happy and sad. I really like that good and happy stuff best!
