Best in Show

The dogs and I all went to the annual summer Windsprite show this afternoon. Dog shows aren't  generally our thing, but it is good to see all the extended Windsprite families. Orrie took 2nd place in his class. Cora decided she really wanted no part of the show ring and tried to climb into my lap while we were supposed to be trotting around and showing off for the judge. She got no ribbons but I assured her that she was the best dog in the ring and a perfect farm dog and that is enough for us. 

Connor brought home the greatest prize....He didn't have any classes but went along for fun. I took the crew for a walk and Connor veered off into a dense patch of weeds and came out with a frisbee. Only Connor could go to a dog show and go on a search-and-rescue mission for a long-lost frisbee none of us had ever seen before. 

We're all back home now where it is very clear these guys are always Best In Show.

Just Ducky

Every spring a pair of Mallard ducks stop by for a rest stop on my pond. This year, they finally decided to stick around and raise some babies. I think it is because part of a tree fell into the pond and some shrubs have grown up around, providing more cover.  

Mallards have always been my favorite.

The pond-otter likes to spend these hot, summer days hanging out with them.

Ten Years!

 How do donkeys celebrate a double-digit birthday?

You talk the naughty, oversized, teenaged mule into orchestrating a breakout. 

And you invite all your friends out for a party in the tall grass. 

Happy Tenth Birthday Ramsey!!

It is so hard to believe this was TEN years ago.

Still Kicking

 Anybody still out there?  Lots of boring job and other unfun stuff this year that sucked out all my blog life but I wanted to let you know that my real world is still ticking along....
