Merry Christmas

Oh what a glorious day

T'was The Night Before Christmas

We have a fairly large family, there were five of us children.   I have some of the fondest memories of Christmas.  One of them is the book, The Night Before Christmas pictured below.  We grew up with this wonderful book and it is torn, tattered, written in, smudged.  It is still very sentimental to me.

Goodbye Sweet Chewy

Yesterday we said goodbye to our sweet Great Pyrenees. Everyone at the animal hospital fell in love with him also. Not a dry eye was found on anyone. I appreciate their kind and excellent care.  He was stricken with a sickness that he could not come back from. We will miss our dear chicken protector, pet and friend.
Chewy had such a loving, sweet, loyal manner about him, yet that very protective side.
I have never owned such a sweet dog with such a wonderful personality.  He will be missed.

Goodbye my dear friend.

Also a goodbye to my oldest hen Cora
She left us this week also.
Cora was a wonderful layer and a hen with such a personality, she was one that didn't want
Motley Crow her rooster to have any other hens and never let him forget it....

I don't know how my grandparents did this farm animal life. I guess they just took it all in stride and went on. I have a habit of making every animal my pet naming them, singing to them...oh well

We have other hens and will get another dog. It won't be Chewy but just the same I know he will be loved and enjoyed.
