Famous Dogs

Unrelated to the farm, but very related to my dogs, I should point out that my mutts are nationally famous this month. Click on the links below to read all about The Bark magazine cover dog contest, see Amanda Jones' wonderful pictures of my dogs on the Jan-Feb 2008 cover, and check out a related article in the Richmond Times Dispatch about the contest. And yes --- all the fame has gone right to their heads and my dogs are demanding high rates of biscuits and cheese to compensate them for their extreme patience in front of the camera. I am happy to oblige.

Winter Dogs

Trying hard to get back into the rhythm of posting weekly, despite the fact that farm projects have not gotten much attention lately. The only recent farm pictures are of my happy dogs playing in the fields and generally enjoying the cold weather. The grass in the agility field is largely brown now, but still provides a great cushion for running and jumping and chasing and fetch. Thor found that the brown grass clippings also stick like velcro if you roll in them --- and that has become his favorite game most days. See if you can find him, carefully camouflaged in the picture above. :-)
