I know. Way too long.

I know. It has been way too long since I last posted. I would say I am going to make a commitment to regular posts, but I know where that leads.

Summer is coming to an end and the homestead needs continuous work. Yesterday I started a project that I’ve been putting off for four years. Replacing the rotting back porch.

And like many project I found if I just start it it goes much more quickly than anticipate. I’ve only done the demolition so far and will have to go get the wood in a few days.

The cats are doing their best to do nothing.

And Noodles went to his first groomers appointment Friday. This is him on the at ride there.

He has up to 30 pounds and the vet thinks he has another 30-40 to go. When not being a pest (really just being a puppy) he is taking the cats lead most of the time.

He made one trip to work at the pharmacy and found his “spot,” not that he will be small enough to fit there for very little long.

Well time to go do some yard work. Exciting new to come though. Stay tuned.

Well hello there

Well over 3 years was long enough for us and our house is now the home to a new puppy.

It was 2015 that our 13 year old shi-tzu Gizmo passed away. We made the decision to wait a while to get a new dog so we wouldn’t constantly compare them to our old pooch, who was a great dog.

We had been on a waiting list for almost 6 months waiting on our new pup, as we wanted one of several poodle cross breeds that wouldn’t cause allergy problems in our house.

So after a 6 hour trip to South Carolina let me introduce our new Newfypoo, Noodles.

He slept for almost 5 of the 6 hour trip home, instantly winning our hearts as we had somewhat dreaded the long car ride with a whining pup.

The goats and cats thus far are not fans, but I have found my new sports watching partner.

Compared to years ago with gizmo.

Have a great day world.
