And then some !
I am babysitting/dogsitting Mac, my sister and brother in law's West Highland White terrier for the weekend . And also the neighbor up the road is away and asked me to keep an eye on things and feed her critters. No sweat right?
(OK Winston , here is the plan )
(we will lay low till she is not looking)
(Scoping out the options)
(Busted by Skeeter! "Mom, Mac is trying to make a break for it !!!)
("Who me?? In the white fur coat?")
( "Wouldn't dream of it ")
Actually Mac has been very good, anyone who knows
terrors I mean terriers, knows they can have a streak of well defiance. But with the A Team of Winston and Skeeter hanging out and playing Mac is able to be off leash for quite a while and really run and play . (the pocket full of cookies I am armed with probably does not hurt)
So that is going OK, on to the other job, I am caring for 23 pot bellied piglets, 2 geese and, well a bunch of chickens.
It would be wrong to say I hate chickens and pigs , because I don't hate them , but if I am to be truly honest,how do I like my pork and poultry?? Well done thanks!
I realize pot bellied pigs are a pet, but you get my point . Anyhow , I did take a picture of the piggies, there were two wrestling , but I missed that shot , they are kind of cute I guess.
The chickens, well first of all I am allergic to feathers and grain dust, so between the birds, and the laying mash , I may be a while before I lose this nasal tone in my voice . Also when I was in the chicken house , there were several overhead in roosts , and dang ! that creeps me out ! Meanwhile the geese were in the next pen hissing at me !Yeesh!
But this is the neighbor ,who very often steps in and watches the dogs for me and the horses, she is sweet and kind , and I would never turn her down , she deserves a break too.
And for my efforts , any eggs I gather this weekend are mine, and I am allowed to raid the pea patch!!!!Not sure she has thought this through, or she doesn't know just how much I like fresh garden peas!
Anyhow , between , my side jobs, and my own stuff, I am gonna be a busy gal this weekend!
Stay safe everyone!
