We got a new puppy!!

Meet our new puppy.....Butterscotch or Butter for short. She is a full blooded Great Pyrenees and is 7 weeks old. We surprised the kids with her for Valentine's Day. We had to give our other dog, Buster, to my brother b/c he killed two of your chickens. He was suppose to guard them, not eat them. Butter is a livestock dog and has been raised with chickens from birth. She will now be our new guard dog and play mate.

Zing, Zang, Zoom!!!!!!

We surprised the kids with a trip to the circus this weekend. They had absolutely NO idea where we were going until we parked across the street from the elephants. If you click on the picture above, it will enlarge so you can see the elephants behind them.
We arrived an hour early for the "all access pass" to mingle with the ringmaster, clowns, and performers. Above, they are trying on clown costumes.
