not much going on around here...and i think that is pretty darn good.

nugget is getting pretty big...gosh little baby chicks grow up fast! probably next week i will try her in with charley and hope they bond, then i can build charley a real handicapped accessible chicken coop and outside pen cuz he will have a safe chicken friend to live with.
anyway that is the plan...put them together while nugget is still young but not too small to get hurt and hope that by finishing growing up with a crippled bird, she accepts him as he is.
apparently now i am a chicken psychologist (i could maybe someday write a paper on how to stop chickens from cannabalizing the weaker ones!)
abbey is doing good..she is starting to beg for food like all good and hungry labs should. nice to see her brain is working better..she is a super nice dog!
blech! mya is laying under the computer desk on the karunda bed, sloppily but happily licking my feet and legs..thank god i am planning on bathing tonight...yuck.
i will let them lick me cuz for some reason it is important to them but quite frankly, i think the whole canine practice of cheerfully licking pretty much anything or anyone they like, is pretty damn gross.
and this would be why i like standoffish northern dogs, emotionally they don't have to obsessively suck up or need to lick me to feel good about themselves. but....northern dogs (and beagles!) feel good inside by getting away with doing bad stuff like.... stealing food, ignoring you, escaping and running away, digging holes and chewing thru the freshly painted doors and walls.
sigh..all dogs have their good and bad points i suppose...and that is why i REALLY like sheep. they don't make much noise, they don't insist of sleeping on my bed, they have no interest in the big wide world, you only have to shave them and trim their hooves once a year, they never do bad stuff ever and they never lick me either.
next life i am only rescuing sheep.
ok...my feet needing de-dog slobbering, time for a nice bombed out bath!
