i didn't get out to the chickens til this afternoon and pleeze was dead. i thought she was looking really good and we had escaped the effects of commercial farming with her...apparently not. i am assuming her heart gave out suddenly as this happens with the commercial birds and she was absolutely fine yesterday. they have been hanging out in the chicken house for the last week because of the snow so i didn't notice her not being as active as usual because they haven't wanted to be outside very much. maybe i would have seen it coming, maybe not...but i am truly sorry that we have lost her because she was a very nice chicken.
pugsy the pug is here, she arrived late this afternoon. she is a great little dog and gives phenomenol kisses. i spent a couple of hours with her on my lap watching the continuing saga of the meercats. she likes hanging out and watching tv with me so i think she is going to do fine here.
