Walking the Dogs…

We finally took the dogs for a walk the other evening.  It was a nice cool evening, so we put leashes on Thai and Koal and let Ash go on her own.  For anyone who knows Ash or has heard stories about Ash, this will seem shocking to not have her on a very short leash.  However, this is her (possibly only) area of expertise.  She trotted along about 5-10 feet in front of us the entire time.


Thai has some listening issues we are still working on, and Koal is a cold-blooded killer that would have been shoulder deep in every hole/den we passed had it not been for Randy keeping him above ground.

It was a peaceful night at our house since everyone was worn out from the walk.

Have a wonderful day!

    Hi Gretchen!

    It is exciting news about your adoption. I will be praying for you. How is Randy feeling? I had to go back and catch up on your blog! Your house looks great! That is a lot of work. I helped my husband do our garage roof last summer.
    I posted an entry at the Homesteader Blogger this morning. I will see if I can keep it up.
    Time to get busy! Have a wonderful day!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
