Puppies First Farm Visit

We finally got to take the puppies to the farm. They had a blast! They gave me lots to smile about and laugh over - just what I needed.

We like this place! 

They ran and dug in the dirt:

oops, Buddy got into the paint - see the white streaks on his lower body?
 I was testing paint colors on the exterior. He had to "help"

ran some more, then found the leaf piles and played in them like little kids:


Burrowing and tossing leaves up


What fun! They make a great crunchy noise!

I think they loved being there....they certainly wore themselves out!

Whew! We played hard!
While I played with the puppies, Bruce replaced the steps in the yard:

Old railroad ties removed and new ones going in place

new steps
The old ones were pretty rotted and threatened to crumble when we walked on them. It's great to have solid wood underfoot now. Thanks, Bruce! Now I need to work on cleaning the weeds out of the retaining wall.

I also tested paint colors for the exterior of the house. It's mostly brick but the previous owners had started repainting (bad color choice) the trim, porches, and garage doors then quit about 1/4 of the way through. It needs to be redone soon! Also on the list, painting the inside of the doors. They are primed so ready to go. I need a week there! Herbie and Buddy are all over that - they can't wait to go back and explore some more.



  1. Your puppies are just adorable Cecilia! Look at them having such a great time in those leaves, so absolutely joyful. It's so amazing how our furry friends can help us just by being their wonderful selves. Glad they made you smile!

    1. That they did, Tuula! They are such happy boys. Glad I have them!

  2. Oh my goodness, is there anything in this world cuter than that? - Okay, I'll just go ahead and say NO. You are getting so much done on your farm. I'm looking forward to updates.

    1. haha, Karen! They are pretty darn cute. And I'll be sure to post all we do. Looking forward to being able to go more frequently again.

  4. Awwwwwww!! You hit my soft spot with this one! Absolutely precious!! I so miss my granddog, and can't wait until we have a pup (or two) someday. Give them lots of hugs and kisses from Aunt Doreen (I can be their Auntie, right?).

    1. haha, of course you can, Auntie Doreen. They send kisses back. :)
