Lambchop is here

Both of the children have birthdays in the coming weeks and we made a family decision to get them dogs. Of course, they promised repeatedly that THEY will take care of them, but us parents know the truth. A trip to the Humane Society resulted in two dogs being adopted. Lambchop, a 6-month old Pit/Terrier mix, hopped in the car for the ride home to the farm. Bear needs to have his "surgery" done, so he won't be home until Thursday.

The ride home was uneventful (thankfully!). Lambchop loves to have his head hanging out the window. Our current two dogs sniffed Lambchop and went about their business. Lambchop is not a barker for which I'm endlessly grateful! Lots of things to bark at in the middle of the night on a farm. We had a few minutes of fighting over bones and food but overall, things went pretty smooth.

I really hope Bear's arrival goes just as smoothly and all four dogs will coexist happily together. We'll see.... 

Lambchop did seem very interested in my chickens and was running up and down the outside of the run looking at them. We had a serious talk about what is for Lambchop and what is not for Lambchop. Hope he listened.


  1. Good luck with Lampchop. Glad to see your new dogs are coming from the Humane Society. My favorite place to select a pet from.

  2. He's beautiful Susanne. Love when dogs get rescued to great homes. Can't wait to see Bear too :)

  3. Thanks, girls! I just started serving on the Board of Directors for our Humane Society. Sadly, we only have 10% of our animals adopted. I wouldn't go anywhere else! I just love Bear. He's a Shepherd/Boxer mix and sweet as can be. Can't wait to get him! And he's 1 1/2 yrs old which is easier than a puppy. One of our dogs is a blind, deaf, 14-yr old lab. We love him so but he's on his way out. And deserves respect! :)

  4. A cutie, His face reminds me of Petey the dog from the Little rascals ! Do you remember that show! Have a great day !
