The very day Peekaboo left us, we left for a week in Denver for a family reunion-birthday party. Since I got back, I didn't have much heart to post. As Gayle said in a comment on my last post, so many animals gone in such a short time. And despite all our precautions, mostly because of their silliness, we have lost two more chickens to the fox. We've discussed many options for keeping our birds safe, and tomorrow will bring some changes, but a very big one--well, some day it will be a very big one!--happened today.
Zephyr Hill's Mistral (a huge, strong wind in the South of France) swept me off my feet and swooped in to take up residence as our future LGD (Livestock Guardian Dog). Misty (because who wants a dog to know it is actually named after a tempestuous wind?) is a registered Great Pyrenees puppy from Golden Pond Farm near Atlanta.
She is six weeks old, already weaned, started on her shots, and ready for her new home--and this is it!
Here she is, in all her adorable fur-ball puppy-ness, thanks to Jenny's amazing photography!
