We had to say goodbye to our trusted best friend Miss Scarlett a couple of weeks ago. I miss her each time I walk outside... We cooked pancakes Saturday...and that was always a favorite treat of hers...She would dare the cats to snitch one... Rest in Peace old girl... You were the best doggie ever.
We laid her to rest beside the burn pile... she always liked to grab a roasted critter when we weren't looking... Figured it was a fitting spot for her...
We adopted a new fellow this weekend...His name is Sunny. He's Yellow Lab Mix. I'm sure Miss Scarlett would have liked him. He immediately started barking at a squirrel upon his first walk around the farm. I tell him all about Miss Scarlett as we go for our daily walks. He says he's gonna try to be a good farm dog. All the sights and sounds have him a bit overwhelmed right now.
