On Monday a friend of ours, Leslie P., came over to take our photos for the spring/summer print newsletter that will go to press next week. I thought you'd enjoy seeing this sequence of outtakes -- these four shots were... Continue reading

And now for a post from the farming side of the farm. I took the photo this weekend in the goat barn. That's our Alpine dairy doe Twink, letting her two kids use her as a step-ladder to get to... Continue reading

For a bonus Friday post, I thought I'd share this funny music video our veterinary cardiologist, Dr. Don Brown, sent me. It's probably funny only for those of us who have endured this ridiculous, never-ending winter, but even those of... Continue reading

Along with Aurora and Widget, I took Sunny to Peak in Burlington yesterday for an overall evaluation. For one thing, we wanted the surgeon there, Dr. Kurt Schulz, to look at Sunny's deformed front leg and help us decide what,... Continue reading

If the early bird gets the worm, the early geese get ... the frozen pond. We had two very confused geese land on the pond on Thursday morning, only to discover it was still mostly ice. They kept walking around... Continue reading

I didn't take any photos yesterday when I was at Peak in Burlington, so I thought I'd just go ahead and post this cute shot I took the other morning of Wilbur and Aurora in the living room. In a... Continue reading

She may be blind in one eye now, and she may have had surgery on a knee to remove a tumor just two weeks ago, but Miss Darla is determined to show those two whippersnappers -- Travis and Tanner --... Continue reading

The photographer Melissa McDaniel emailed me this week to say she only has a couple hundred copies of her Puppy Mill Survivors book left, and she wanted to do another special discount sale for Rolling Dog Farm supporters. You may... Continue reading

I took Aurora, Darla and Widget back to Peak in Burlington last week. Our internist, Dr. Marielle Goossens, wanted the radiologist, Dr. Lynn Walker, to ultrasound Aurora's leg again to see what that clot in her artery was doing. That's... Continue reading

Yes, that's little one-eyed Aurora undergoing a CT scan on her neck last week at Peak in Burlington. We have a mystery here. As a result, this post might end up being the length of a mystery novel. Sorry! Several... Continue reading

Darla's left eye going blind wasn't the only bad news last week. There was plenty. On Tuesday, I had taken Widget in for her post-chemo "re-staging" to see what the status of her lymphoma was. Since our oncologist, Dr. Kendra... Continue reading

I was in Burlington yesterday with three special girls -- Darla, Widget and Aurora -- for a full day of veterinary medicine. Darla was scheduled for her double surgery ... our ophthalmologist would be doing a laser procedure on her... Continue reading

Well, exactly one week after he arrived, on Friday afternoon, Sunny came out of hiding. Alayne walked into the dog room and found him lying on a bed in the sun. He looked at her, got a worried look on... Continue reading

This is the little guy who arrived with Cap. The Arkansas shelter had heard about him at a rescue group in Shreveport and asked if we could take him. You can't tell from the photo, but he was born with... Continue reading

What weighs 5 pounds and cruises at 500 mph? If you guessed a new, super-secret drone of some sort, you'd be mistaken. If you guessed a tiny, wire-haired Dachshund mix puppy of some sort, you'd be correct. His name is... Continue reading

In the previous post I said that the leg in the photo belonged to Tanner. Well, here's what was going on just before Wilbur stood up and Alayne took the photo. Both boys were enjoying some winter sunshine coming through... Continue reading

Yep, there he is sporting his new diapers. He couldn't believe we were taking his photo to post on the blog. We told him not to be embarrassed -- about 25 million adult Americans have urinary incontinence, and in Japan... Continue reading

Posting that photo on Monday of Travis jumping the gate reminded me that I had yet to post some photos I took a couple of months ago of Aurora showing us how she deals with the gate. Like Travis, if... Continue reading

I took this photo a couple of days ago of Travis jumping the gate at the end of one of the ramps. His normal play yard is behind the house, but after his dental surgery we moved him to the... Continue reading

That's Tanner on a bed in the living room, enjoying one of Holly's favorite toys. (We didn't tell her.) This is what he does when he makes it past the security guard out front -- i.e., Darla -- and scampers... Continue reading

Just a few hours after I posted that last blog about Darla keeping Travis and Tanner at bay, Alayne managed to get the photos that had eluded us for the past few weeks. By shooting from inside the house, she... Continue reading

It turns out that not only is Darla a very good watch dog -- she is very alert to anything in the woods beyond the front yard, and she'll stand and growl until satisfied the "threat" is gone -- but... Continue reading

Alayne took that photo a few days ago of blind Widget in mid-roll on a bed in the living room. Back in October, I had mentioned in a post that our oncologist at Peak Veterinary Referral Center in Burlington, Dr.... Continue reading

It's funny how a camera angle can make a 7 lb Chihuahua look three times his normal size, isn't it? Wilbur was also on the van to Burlington last week for a check-up with our internal medicine specialist at Peak,... Continue reading

Blind Sophie, our newly diagnosed diabetic, was one of the dogs I took to Burlington last week along with Darla. In the photo above is our internal medicine specialist, Dr. Marielle Goossens, examining Sophie. Under Marielle's direction, we started Sophie... Continue reading
