I'm Back!

Well, I'm back again.  It has been quite the last few months.  We lost our beloved Pumpkin in February.  She had lived with us for almost 14 years.  She was one of the best dogs I have ever had. She didn't like sharing the spot with other dogs, but would do it anyway.  She also never fused about any of the animals we have had on the farm.  She did not chase the chickens or fuss at the goats even when they would head butt her.  She was a red lab mix.  After a couple of weeks, we finally got used to her not being here and quit looking for her to greet us at the door when we would get home. 

I got the button program all together and had several tell me that it was very good and inspired them to go home and go through their buttons.  They look at them a little bit different now.  I went to the Texas State Button convention.  I got my fill of buttons.  I bought a few "pretties" that I have yet done anything with.

Then in April, I got a puppy.  Her name is Annie.  She is a border collie/springer mix.
She has a fabric fettish.  She cannot go past a scrap of fabric on the floor without picking it up and she usually hides it somewhere else.  She also has been eating my herbs in the herb garden.  She especially loves mint. I have had to plant it several times.  She nips at the plants and then digs them up to eat somewhere else.  I have had to buy new ones because she takes it somewhere and I can't find it to rescue from her.

Have a great Mother's Day today.  I am spending the afternoon with my oldest son, who is visiting from Montana.

  1. Sorry to hear about Pumpkin. I know how it feels, I lost my soul dog, Abby, on March 3 two years ago. I still miss her and always will. I have two boy dogs that I love very much but Abby was always my favorite. I have another girl now - a Westie named Lacy. Although no dog will ever replace Abby - Having Lacy gives me somewhere to direct all of that love...And of course, Lacy is a character all her own.

    Annie is a beauty.
