even angelina said she made it thru ok.
helga came to help with the mp building...i fed the barn guys before i left and did up the back room cats on my lunch break.
everyone was alive and well (including angelina) by the tiime i got home from work.
laura was here mowing and weed whacking and when a sudden down pour hit, she helped me get the barn guys to bed.
there were two things that utterly amazed me..and i don't amaze very easily as far as animals are concerned.
the first thing was at 730 this morning...i went into the mp room..and there was THE biggest cow pie sized dog poop..i had ever seen in my life. it wasn't even regular cow sized...it was mega-cow sized...it would have made the guiness book of world records of humungous cow sized dog poop things.
it was from dusty who ate all kinds of stuff last night to keep her quiet during a special movie night. the smoke bone she polished off in less than half an hour and i wondered if she was going to obstruct from bone chips during the night.
apparently not, everything seemed to be working mightly fine in that department for her.
the second thing that amazed me was...little did we know that we have a fantastic herding dog here...he is a lab/pitty cross named "al" and he can run like the wind.
that bastard carl took off into the lower field at bedtime. i told al to go and get him...and that freaking dog actually did. he chased him around the pond (and then got distracted as he found a missing dinosaur that he had to bring to me)
i said...no go get that freaking carl so he ran back down the hill and chased carl right back up for me.
i tried it again with edith but by then al's work was done and he wanted me to throw the dinosaur for him cuz apparently he only retrieves one real animal a night...but hey..it worked well for me!
and just so you don't think i am bullshitting...laura saw the whole freaking thing!
we will be short staffed right thru until friday...renee has a bad case of tonsillitis.
