Sweet Emily spent a couple hours at the farm copying recipes for me. So many times when we're out there we will think of something to fix but not have the recipe out there to use.
I finally thought of it while at home and took out a stack of our favorite recipes.
She did the honors of copying them so we now have a set at home and at the farm.
She was trying to ignore me while I took her picture.
She failed. I finally got a smile out of her.
This is the old dog pen at the farm.
We never used it with Meg, but we've used it with the puppies when we've taken them with us to the farm.
They loved it since their whole life has been lived in a kennel placed on concrete.
They went wild being able to lay around and play in the grass all day long.
We were just thankful to be able to lock them up somewhere safe.
It gave the kids a way to play with the puppies without having to keep chasing down the ones who wandered off. The older the pups got the harder it was to keep them together.
I am so glad we decided to have a litter of pups (not sure Meg would agree with that).
It was a lot of fun and a learning experience for all of us.
Yes, fourteen was a bit more than we bargained for, but we were able to manage and all the puppies ended up getting good homes.
I think the biggest joy was knowing that four of the dogs are going to work in one capacity or another as service dogs and therapy dogs for people with various special needs.
I'd consider that a 'happily ever after' kind of ending.
I like happy endings.
