We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Our Soon To Be, Neutered Puppies

Well this morning, I called in the information for the Volvo to get it listed on our insurance.  Then off we went to drop off Banjo and Sonic for their operation at the vet. This means they can not get a wandering female pregnant.  Best thing to do for outside dogs is to get them neutered. There are far too many unwanted animals running about in the world.  This is the two having a conniption about being inside their cage on the ride. Hee hee, just look at those innocent faces!
Below is the birdhouse kit, Grumpy Gramps sent to Zephyr for Christmas.  Zephyr and his dad used the tools that were sent to build this bird house. I think Zephyr did a great job under his dad's watchful eye.
Thank you for a wonderful gift! 

 See the holes for hanging it up?  We still have to either paint this lovely or at least seal the wood due to extremes in our weather.
Yeppers, I am still sporting the MND bracelet in support of
My Brother Andrew get on over there to learn about Ms. Jan's cause.   
I bid ya'll adieu! :O)

Neutering is so needed anymore! My house is inhabited by unwanted animals, but I do have my limits. Jill came spayed and we had Jack neutered around 6 months, Vet did a great job, Jack had the laser surgery and was all healed up in a flash!

Glad you are legal now! Our new insurance lets you wait 45 days to give them the information, but NO Trooper is going to go by that!

Love the bird house, great job Zepher! I never think to pick up a kit or two when I go to Lowe's or Home Depot. Did the kit specify what bird it was for? I want a Bluebird house and maybe a Wren house.

Have a great rest of the day!

Thank You Ms. Janet. You are very welcome. I wear the bracelet next to the breast cancer awareness. I just can't find my purple one for the animal shelter. Dang It! LOL Happy New Year's

Mrs. Sharon, I hope they use laser surgery on the pups. Sonic the Bully is only 12 lbs and Banjo the Follower is just a tad over 5. We get about 3 or 4 dogs dumped around here each year. It is sad.

It is too small for anything but a wren or chickadee around here. Texas seems to have some rather large birds. I did not open the kit -- so any instructions or specifications were lost by Zephyr. We have a plethora of cardinals, woodpeckers, scrub jays, doves, and really noisey/bully green jays. I will try to get some pics of them when I have a nice day outside.

Thanks for the well wishes!
You too, Sugar.

Birdhouses always look their best with a corporate logo upside down.

Beware the "next blog" button.

Mal, what a great gift that bird house is! Nice job.
How did the pooches make out with the operations?

Hee Hee Greg, Well apparently the little terriorists have no thoughts on the matter. They are back to chasing my hens about the back yard and rabbits too. :O)

Joanna, I think Conniption is a lovely goat name. Very Fitting!

You are very welcome, huggable John.

Fowl Ideas, I am sure my six year old believes the same as you do about company logos. Thanks for stopping by.

Jim, The pups are full of piss and vinegar; getting into all kinds of grief. Zephyr is still trying to figure out how the BIG ole song birds we have here will fit into his birdhouse. I too thought it was a thoughtful gift.
