Sad day at our house today. We got rid of Mrs. Pteranodon, Aunt Bea, Gloria, Binky, Zoe and Joker. It’s always hard to say goodbye to pets, especially ones you really, really enjoy and love. Because of the move we decided to lighten our load of animals and downsize. Our new yard is great, but not nearly as big as what we have now. So we had to be fair to the animals and let them go.
I placed an ad on Freecycle about the chickens and got a response from a woman who was interested. As we started talking I also mentioned the rabbits. She wanted them all. Of course I was happy about her wanting everyone, but was even happier to find out they are a homeschooling family, they like to grow their own foods, etc. Sounds a lot like we are. I knew they were the perfect ones to take the chickens and rabbits.
We still have our original 6 girls. We kept the Giselle and Peter Rabbit. I just couldn’t totally get rid of rabbits!
One thing we did do this week that was TOTALLY NOT in the plan was getting a new puppy! I have wanted a Yorkie for a good 6 years now. But having spent a lot of money on our English Bulldogs I said I would never spend a lot of money on a dog again. Not that they aren’t worth it, but because, well…..I would rather get a shelter dog! Anyway……I happened to check out Freecycle (yes, I LOVE Freecycle!) and an ad was placed just minutes before. A lady had 4 Yorkie puppies-purebred. For Free. I called Chris IMMEDIATELY, knowing in my heart he would be sensible and say no. Well, he said yes. So we are now the proud owners of a little puppy dog named Triton. This guy is little and full of ATTITUDE! If you looked up Little Dog Syndrome in the dictionary you would see a picture of Triton!
Here is a picture of my new sweetie-it’s almost impossible to get a picture of him. He doesn’t slow down long enough to get a good face pic!
And of course you can tell that even though he is suppose to be MY dog, somebody else has taken him over. In fact, between Maggie and Chris, I am wondering where I fall into this who ownership thing! LOL
We have 9 more days until we move. I haven’t done a whole lot to prepare so my posting may be hit and miss for a little bit! I have lots to do. I am finally getting in the frame of mind though, so it will be a breeze from here on out! I am so looking forward to our new home!
