Yesterday and Today

Yesterday we had to make a rescue run to Corbin, KY, to drop off Grace, a very sweet middle aged tri color corgi on the run to her new home in TN.  We enjoyed Dairy Queen with some very dear friends and got to visit for about an hour.  But before we left here, we had to tend to chores.  And after those were done, there was one little chore that still needed to be done.  One of the younger goats had not been feeling well so we had brought her up and put her in an ex pen in the breezeway, which is heated.  Gazelle liked this just fine!  She has had a shot of antibiotic, and although it has been reasonably decent out, the nights are pretty cool.  We didn't want to take a chance on her getting sick in a worse fashion.  But she needed to get back down so we could get on the road on our rescue trip.  Fastest way was to take a ride with Jerry:
She really enjoyed her ride to the barn!  This is how we get Jewel back when she comes up to the house and Jerry has actually ridden all over the property with her.  Of course, this is Jewel, and those of you who know her story know she gets anything she wants in life!
Today I came home from work and asked how the pups were doing.  Jerry said fine.  Kathy was over and she said fine.  So I went into the bedroom to get in my jeans and this is what I found:
Well, yeah, I guess she was fine, just not where she needed to be!  This is Diva and she must have had a good latch onto Tabi and when Tabi jumped out of the box, she must have still been attached....Nonetheless, the little darling found a warm and safe place and curled up to take a nap.  This is the second pup out of the box, the first was the small spot boy and I suspect the same thing happened.  That was at 2 weeks and 2 days, a new record for us, here!  Today is 2 weeks and 4 days.
Here's a closeup:
She was warm and happy but missing a feeding!  Now she is back with the others and I can see that in the next day or two, I will have to make a more secure place for the little ones.


  1. Personally, I think Diva planned this all for some extra attention. Are you sure Auntie Asling hasn't snuck in there to whisper some secrets in her ittybitty puppy ears?

  2. I can't believe how fast they grow! I thought maybe you were going to say little Diva was screaming to get back to the food!
