…and not so far away…ok, I have been far away! 2 years away (from this blog anyway)! 😱 My last post/fosters were Homer and Nitro! That was May 2016! As of March 4, 2016 and after 2 months shy of 23 years, I am unemployed (although I think we can officially call it retired)! What I initially thought was one of my lifes worse nightmares turned into one of its biggest blessings! Life really is crazy!! Since then our family has sold two houses (ours and my oldest son), bought two houses (1.5 acres for us/5 for my son), my oldest got married and we’ve just about rebuilt the house we currently live in! An old 1913-ish farmhouse!
Fast forward to 2018, we are in the final stretch of construction so, of course, I’ve been itching to FINALLY get back into fostering again! Since the https://enlightenedbyadog.wordpress.com/2015/09/03/dont-be-a-chicken-eater/ post, we’ve added more chickens, a rooster, 4 ducks to our flock and a barn cat we named…wait for it…Barney (although Tracy says we should change his name to Homie since he spends more time in the house than the barn)! Duke (& Delilah) are still doing wonderful with their poultry manners!
When I started this blog, my intention was to post things I learned along the way about, from or with my dogs! Honestly, it’s been a lot! If you watch animals and try to understand their language, it’s pretty amazing!!! Watching dogs at the dog park has turned into watching chickens peck the ground and ducks dig in the mud (OMG I’m a country song); learning their language every step of the way!
So now I’d like to introduce you to the latest set of ‘puppies’ I am ‘fostering’…Annie and Oakley A brother/sister pair of Nigerian/Fainter cross Nubian goats born on 6/4/2018 (my youngest sons birthday 🎂)! Not sure when to tell Duke and Delilah they aren’t ‘puppies’ and that they aren’t leaving! 🤔
The enlightenment continues…stayed tuned!
