Oh Yeah, I Forgot!!!

Oh well....

I forgot that... puppy + food = poop!
I forgot that... puppy + water = pee!

When the big dogs go out to do their business the little dog follows.
She sees what the other two are doing and does her business too.
She just has to do it more often!
Now if she could just get the hang of letting me
know when she needs to go out we would be set.


I spent the greater part of yesterday steam cleaning rugs and mopping floors.
Thank goodness we haven't put carpeting down yet.
After I cleaned the rugs, I rolled them up and put them on the deck.
Maybe by spring Fluffy will have the hang of things and I can bring them back in!

A little ammonia, mixed with orange essential oil in the mop pail had the place
clean and smelling great  in no time.

I need to go finish making soap,
Till next time,
I'll be watching where I step.

The Gifts Just Keep Coming!

Welcome Fluffy!
We found this little thing on our front porch New Years Eve morning.
A whining, crying, shivering, little fluffy ball of fur who stole our hearts.

We're guessing she's a Blue Heeler/Saint Bernard mix.
Big feet, big head, Blue Heeler markings on her snout.
Lots of straight fluffy fur.
I was hoping the next dog that showed up would be short haired!

I think Fluffy wore Dad out!
Lady and Red are not so sure what they think about
this new little fur ball so Steve will be taking her to work with him for awhile.

Who abandons a barely weaned puppy out in the country
where Coyotes abound?
Are there brothers and sisters "out there" shivering in the night?
This is so sad!!!!
And how did she make it all the way down the drive to our house?

If you have opinions/suggestions
 as to her breed /mix please feel free to share.

Till next time,
