    A new cougar.....skinny and hungry.....just what you needed.

    Enjoy your trip and try not to worry about the Plagues of Moses descending down upon your farm while you are gone.

    Well, I will not be getting my new (3rd) Anatolian puppy for a while. The breeder told me it was a false pregnancy and so no puppies. No trip to Texas this winter :idunno No meeting any BYH friends. :hit

    However, I am on Erick's list for a puppy from his spring litter (his only planned litter) so will be coming to Texas next year! :weee

    It is just as well since less than a week after returning from Washington I was running a fever with the same thing I had last spring. Went to Urgent Care this time instead of just riding it out. Surprise not an intestinal flu but another bout of Diverticulitis. Some complications so ended up in hospital :confused: on IV antibiotics then home last week with diagnosis that will need some surgery when infection clears which would have prevented us being able to travel to get puppy in Nov/Dec.
    All will be well since going to Texas to get puppy from Erick means more time to be IN TEXAS :love and travel through east Texas. Erick says that Tyler is one of the prettiest spots in Texas so looking forward to seeing that area next year.

    Sad not to get new puppy, but predators under control at this time since locking the sheep up at dusk. They are still active though and dogs still working hard. Last week DS said lots of ravens and vultures over gully. He counted sheep just in case but all accounted for so we are thinking maybe the dogs killed a coyote in the gully. I suggested he might like to climb down there and do some searching. :clap DS told me I was possibly delirious and suggested I might like to go back to bed!

    If there is a dead coyote down there he isn't any danger to the sheep so he might as well stay there. Eventually part of him will be dragged up by one of the dogs. They drag all kinds of old rubbish up - Bubba found an old Kewpie doll. Could have been a collector's item but he had chewed off a hand. No respect for antiquities! Old coke bottles, all kinds of stuff from 100 years ago when they used to burn their trash there have surfaced in Bubba's private trash stash.

    We live just north of Tyler, by a few miles, and will be waiting on your puppy run next year, so we can meet you!

    sorry you won't be getting the new pup but am glad the predators have cooled their jets.
