Does this darling little puppy look like a banshee from hell? Well, if she doesn't, she sure should! Her howling and crying kept the whole house up the entire night. Don't ask me why she didn't loose her voice with all the racket she made, but she didn't. Heck, she's not even hoarse.
I have a plan to get some sleep tonight. I sure hope it works. I kept this darn puppy busy all day. She should be so dog gone tired she could sleep for a week but I'd be happy for about 4 hours in a row. That shows you how desperate I am for some sleep.
The puppy started off her day with me going out to the barn to feed the horses. Instead of chaining her and then doing my job, I hauled her around with me to each stall. Sometimes she rode in the wheel barrow and other times she scampered alongside as we made our way through each barn.
The younger horses weren't sure what to think of this new addition to our farm. Scarlet has been disturbed by the puppy's barking but still managed to stick her head out to take a sniff. The puppy wasn't sure what to think of this approach by anything as big as Scarlet. By the time we finished our rounds, the puppy was thinking she might just go into Legs's stall for a visit.
Hope was probably the turning point in the puppy's relationship with the horses. As the puppy sat on the hay in the wheel barrow, the mare put her face out and softly stroked the puppy across her back. The puppy looked up then snuggled back against Hope's face.
By the time we got done feeding all the horses, I think the puppy would have preferred to take a long nap. But I've not allowed much napping throughout this day. The puppy accompanied Lindsay out to do her chores and spent most of the day out at the barn. She even managed to make friends with one of our cats.
The question of a name has not been totally settled. Colleen's family had given her a name but I think that we'll probably pick our own name for her. I guess it's part of the fun of getting a new pet......deciding on a name.
In the meantime I have begun body clipping horses for our visitors arriving sometime towards the end of this week or beginning of next. Yesterday Richard and I bathed Vee and Percy. Today I began clipping their legs. My back gave out before I got any farther on the project so finishing will happen during the week along with schooling. of course. There's never a dull moment here, that's for sure.
