They are growing up...sigh

This morning it was clear and dry, so I sat in the paddocks with my camera. I find that peace with my woolies especially soothing on a Sunday morning. Perhaps it is the biblical link of "lamb and God " or perhaps it is because the usual hum of traffic on Rte 1 is somewhat non- existent in the wee hours.

Here are Marigold - now 6 weeks, and Moon Pie - now 10 weeks. Moon Pie has kept his terrific spots, and Marigold is exhibiting a great Babydoll beard. I am so enjoying watching them grow and learn more and more that they can trust me. Eventually I will become to them a fellow sheep in the paddock. Like the older sheep they will know me as friend.

Poor Pirate... yesterday he had a tumor removed from his hind-end. The surgery went great but unfortunately he has to wear the E-Collar since he pulled out 7 of his 16 stitches and had to be stapled back together this morning.

Being two inches off the ground is not easy wearing one of these things. Everything in his path is scooped into the collar! My husband thought he looked like a martini glass so felted him an olive and he reluctantly posed for this shot ...THE WEENIE MARTINI! :)

The Dog Days!

I guess the dog days of summer aren't here yet, but they will be soon. Being the owner of two shelter dogs, I am always looking for ways I can contribute to my local shelter. I donate old towels, food and other needed items at drop off centers, and even held a fundraiser here at my farm last fall. But I always want to do more. Soooo ... for every can or bag of dog food you drop off at my shop, you will receive $1 off any yarn purchase of $10 and up. Let's see how many dogs we can help feed through the summer. Bags of treats count too!
