This little gal was spayed today...

Poor Chloe, she absolutely hates the car. She drools so much she soaks everything around her, and she pees in her crate. But her spay went well and she and Gordon are on their way home as I write this.

Dodger missed her a lot day. He was quite subdued. I kept telling him not to worry, she'll be home soon! They really bonded in foster care.

I have just started taking them for off-leash walks around the farm and they are excellent! They stick close and have great recall, the way Sophie and Tristan did. It's a blessing.

And what a happy pair!

Chloe has happy ears!

We've had some unseasonably warm weather the past couple of days, and the dogs are really enjoying it (not to mention the other animals.)

This guy has the body of a whippet, and he runs like one too.

Last night I was tidying the garage, and I had the pups with me for company. But I needed something to distract Chloe, who was into everything. This did the trick...

...Dodger managed to get in on it too!

And we can't forget this puppy...

Monty turns 9 months old on November 15th and is absolutely huge!

He's a goof and a sweetie, and he takes coyote patrol seriously. He will be neutered soon too.

And this year, I asked people to bring me their Hallowe'en pumpkins for the goats, pigs and birds.

People were dropping off pumpkins all weekend! Some people (I am looking at you, Rox and Kirsten!) even drove in from Ottawa, a good hour from here. We couldn't be more grateful. We must have gotten 50 pumpkins this weekend and the animals are so happy. A great way to recycle post-Hallowe'en pumpkins.

Hope you are all having a good evening, especially you Americans biting your nails over the election. The puppies (all three of them!) send kisses.


  1. Looks like they're settling in very well. Lovely dogs.

  2. Dodger and Chloe have settled in very nicely Natalie. Monty looks very happy too. Your farm must feel like Heaven to them all!

  3. Thanks for sharing all the love and smiles. They sure are needed today.

  4. For a brief blissful minute as I looked at your beautiful doggies, I was able to NOT dwell on what just happened last night. Thank you.

  5. These puppies just make me so happy! The election was awful but glad to see some happy photos today!

  6. These are two very good looking dogs and also look well behaved.

  7. Glad the pups are doing well and settling in good hope all the animals get along . Lovely photos . Thanks for sharing , Have a good week !

  8. Love your pup pics! As for the election, I have no nails left to bite after Trump's win. Can I move in with you?

  9. A great use for Halloween pumpkins. Always irritates me to see them smashed in the streets :(

    As for the election? After a personally bad week and finally, the end of the elections, I'm going out for lunch/dinner and stuff my face. That includes dessert, too.

  10. Congratulations on your two new puppies! How awesome is that?! Dodger totally reminds me of Dobby the house elf from Harry Potter. :o)

  11. thanks for making me smile when I don't feel very much like smiling DakotasDen

  12. The new additions to your family are adorable :-)

  13. Oh, how our dog Scout would love to romp with them. She looks a bit like Dodger. People always assume she's male, so we introduce her as Girl Scout. :) I think she needs a mate like your lucky pupsters. What a fun life for them!

  14. The joy on the faces of the romping dogs really made my day! I love reading your blog and sharing your life as a rescuer and animal lover.


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
