January Snowstorm!

Barn Duties With the Dogs! They LOVE the snow!

Well, they did predict we would be getting snow… And they were correct! January 2018 goes out like a lion dumping a good 18-24″ of fluffy white stuff! (Personally, I had told hubby we would need to pull out the hose to “winter water” our trees this weekend because we’ve had such a dry winter so far. Well, he must have been in cahoots with Mother Nature (because winter watering trees is NEVER a fun thing to do!) so now he doesn’t need to worry about  doing it this weekend!

Deja catching snowflakes!

The dogs absolutely LOVE the snow! Blitzing here and there hoping to chase up a bunny or two, they plow through the drifts enjoying every minute of Mother Nature. Even Beanie, our “honorary” Golden Retriever keeps up with the big dogs; she is not about to let those dogs do anything without her!

Go, Beanie, Go! (SO FUNNY! It looks like Beanie has no legs or feet?! LOL!)

Oh Rooster… You SO NEED a good bath and grooming! (I don’t think he cares as he watches that bunny get away!)

Out to do “barn chores”, the donkeys are less than thrilled with the snow. They carefully keep their distance to stay OUT of the snow much preferring the overhead roof that allows shelter from the elements.

Jack is just NOT into the snow even though his coat is so thick; heat just radiates from his thick, plush winter coat!

Now tired, the dogs individually lick off the “snowballs” built up on their feet. And then, a good nap was had by all! You just can’t beat “playing in the snow” to exercise/tire out the dogs!

We Have a New Champion!

We are so proud of our new CH girl, Deja!

Well, HOORAY!! We are thrilled to announce Deja can now sport that coveted title of “CH” before her name! Deja was chosen “Winner” last weekend in Pueblo, CO at the Colorado Springs Kennel Club show. Pending AKC notification, she now has the needed points won to complete this title. We are so proud of Deja, our Tazo daughter, to have completed this title!

Ironically, Deja was home the week before during our first real snow fall. All of our dogs LOVE running in the snow; I so enjoyed catching this photo of Deja just being herself. It is not hard to see why Deja is now a champion. She naturally shows off the great conformation she has from careful breeding.

Deja is home now and for all practical purposes, is our house dog again. She is now, as she was before, a joy to live with!
