I truly had forgotten how a puppy takes over your life, home, and property. Also how much fun they are. Oliver, our border collie, is now in the awkward gangly stage and is chewing up everything in his path.
Luckily, he and our mini Australian shepherd Rosie, get along great. Oliver can’t wait to start herding the sheep.
We are keeping Oliver on a short leash until we are certain that he isn’t going to chase a deer off into the woods. Like most people in our region, we have more deer on our property than squirrels.
Although most of my plants have gone to seed, the kale is looking really good.
Our maple trees are letting us know that winter is not too far off, and it is time to prepare.
