Guard Dog

16 Mar

Sky is growing into a beautiful German Shepherd.

Sky

He’s become quite protective of the farm.  Any tiny noise he hears, and he’s at the window giving a low warning growl.  I am constantly letting him out of the house to protect us from…

wild turkeys, cats, deer, squirrels, and every other manner of horrible dangerous critter.

I just wish he’d quit killing squirrels.

I cannot convince him that squirrels are our friends.  Sigh…

A Rainy Start to Break

9 Mar

We finally have managed to get our temperatures above freezing!  Yay!  Of course, we have major rain with it.

Pistol and Antigone are the white shadows in the building.

It is a lot of rain.  And there’s a lot of wind.  I suppose I should be grateful it’s not sixteen inches of snow with those howling winds.

But we are all ready for some sunshine.

I think the water on top of the snow has been hard for the wild birds.  Even without having been feeding the birds all winter, lots of them showed up today.  (I did put more dog food out for them.)

I even had three wild turkeys go by in the corn field.

And then it turned to snow.  But we’re supposed to get back up to warmer weather and more rain for much of the week.  Sigh…

Hopefully, the rain and warm weather will at least get rid of the snow.  Then we will be in mud season!
