Saturday. Cut up bull today. always sad to see neighbors lose live stock. still makes the dogs happy! weather warming up. in the summer you have to be fast and efficient to get the meat chilled or it spoils. I uploaded a couple of video. Good neighbor’s bull. was down in his back leg. :+{ always sad. I hate it for our friends.

SOOOO I got TWO calls today one from guy in OR said he almost got scammed out of $$$ on a bullmastiff puppy and another from guy in WY that DID get scammed. I always feel SO BAD for these people. Their heart is hurting they just lost their best friend and someone rips them off! I understand FAther God Loves everyone but please know God is not mocked what so ever a man sows THAT is what he will reap. Reap on you evil people!! all the trouble and heartache you have caused others.

I got to feed Holly puppies twice today as Tim was working on that huge bull. (yes, i helped a litte) I uploaded some video of them . She was 146 on scale at vet’s and she is in good flesh. still she a nice large girl. and loves her puppies AND keeps them CLeAN! what more could Tim ask for?? gives tons of milk and keeps babies clean!

Chip’s litter finally leaving out after some diarrhea. i’ve use $60.00 or more of the pink probiotic in a tube and some meds. If i knew the secret to keeping them from sucking on one another and blowing into diarrhea. I’d save myself some grief.

Off to fed one more time before midnight. Hope I answered everyone emails today! crazy trying to keep up with the requests for puppies. I’m SO glad we got Sadie bred. her first litter and she will be three in Aug. and Brene to Turbo for a brindle litter.

Some of Granny’s Iris beside the road. So pretty.

SO Layla had her litter yesterday I got a couple hrs of sleep at a time and Holly Berry delivered today. Holly has 8 lovely RED puppies well two of them are FAWN a male and a female. :+}

Layla had 2 brindles one male one female 2 fawns and 1 very red male puppy. :+}

Everyone is home and doing well. Tim has the Holly litter out at the house with him. So not sure how many pix we are going to get of those guys. i did do one video i’ll upload tonight Holly was 146 on scale today. she is good and heavy and MAN does she have the milk! Thank goodness Tim will not need to give a bottle. I’ve been trying to give the Chip puppies that don’t get a good tit a bottle and they spit it out and look at me like i’m trying to poison them. ahahaha nothing taste like mommy milk!! so i just stay in there and move them around until every one get full. she is making a lot of milk.

Piper puppies are finally using their box to poop in ! always feels like success! down to 4 nursing a day and eating the 75.00 a bag kibble really good.

Im up and down most of the night but got a couple extra hr this morning so i feel fine. It’s when i work till midnight work from 2:00 to 3:00 or 4:00 get up and 6:00 and have to work the next day till midnight that catches up with me after a while.

Off to bed with me. i did upload a video but no pix yet. tomorrow. :+}

So my puppy girl didn’t make it. she passed a little before 7:00 last night. Once they get chilled it shuts down their gut. she had not nursed since late Monday night and vomited up some undigested milk :+{ I can’t help but take it hard. It’s the sad depressing side of breeding. having to bury them. Tim was so kind he did it last night. Out by the big pond where Sirichia is buried. When i took my walk at almost dark I walked out there.

My room is mess I’m a mess. I looked around and thought hey girl you need to get this place straightened back up! All I did yesterday was tend to that puppy. I did get some sleep between feeding last night. Tim was working cattle this morning and it didn’t even wake me up!

Piper litter eating out of bowl better. I sent Tim to got one of those $75.00 for 17.6 lbs bags of special kibble as one of my boys blew into diarrhea this morning. their little stomaches are so immature at this age. I know i should just cook for them but they over eat when i do that. and i like the idea of them eating when ever they are hungry not just set times. they gain weight better.

So the guys coming to get this load of steers (well NOT steers Tim didn’t band them when they were born) and they are out there bawling to their mummies. I think we are going to purchase a couple of REAL Steers from this same guys to put up and fatten out. the price has just dropped out of the bottom of cattle. very sad. Tim’s cattle always are as fat as they could possible be. The guys that comes and buys them loves Tim’s healthy fat cattle.

Not happy to be weaned!
good looking cattle

it’s only early afternoon. been up since 5:00 a.m.

when i fed and finally got in bed at 1:20 one of Chip’s girls was not as warm as she should have been and she was pooping water. scream! i got her warmed and thought she would be fine in their hot box with blanket on top absolutely NO draft and 150 watt red lamp hanging low but when i got up at few minutes after 5:00 and got in the box she was chilled again. :+{ I tubed her more fluids and held her against me until she warmed up. every time i put her down she cried so I just put her on my chest as I lay on couch listening to the other nurse for an hour. I made her a warm box with heating pad and hot water bottle. I tubed her every hour with just pedialyte as she didn’t nurse at 5:00 she was too weak. the things that make my job the most difficult. Still she was just pooping water! been giving meds for that. finally broke down and used some Pepto. Got to stop this loss of fluids. i put salve on her bottom that helped her screaming when she pooped. . and held her when she cried. i’ve got her on sub Q fluids now. Praying this baby girl makes it.

It’s so hard to hear them cry. :+{ I keep telling her what a lovely girl she is going to grow up and be and how much her family is going to love her.

My Piper box i got up baby gating yesterday. they turned 3 wks old. working on potty training them. I locked them IN the box last night. It’s full of lovely clean shredded papers. it keeps them dry. No need to be warm. it was 80 degrees in here last night I was sweating like pig and smelling like one too! Tina slept out on top of a blanket then i hung one from side of baby gating and she gets under it. She’s a hoot! she’s going to be something else. some of them have had loose stool. i know at this age when they start eating they try poop. GAG i know. and it blows them into diarrhea. I’m constantly monitoring who’s pooping what. giving them probiotics to balance back out their system.

It’s been a week since we have mowed lawn and my new little helpers, 13 year old twin boys that live down the road, are coming to help but i’m out on that today. still setting with this puppy. constantly cking her temperature. and holding her so she doesn’t stress herself crying around. I missed Giggle’s ultra sound and my hair cut. I think i could put pigtails in my hair! it’s WILD and long. ahaha I used to have long hair but had a beauty shop accident since 2006 it’s been short and i love it. It’s so grey it’s easy to color every 3 wks being this short. Yes i have to color EVERY 3 wks!! it grows SO fast. every time i see my sweet little friend that cut my hair she exclaims Man your hair grows fast! ahahah i said i know and i’ve cut it at least twice since you have seen me last. I adore my sweet little friend that cuts my hair. She went to school with my kids.

Thanksgiving 2004 This is my Beloved Dessy as a puppy. :+}

You know I still miss my Dessy. But I know she is waiting on the other side!

ahahah that was a long time ago. never gripe about your appearance. in 10 years you will look back and say MAN i looked good back then. ahahah!! Perspective folks!!

Spring 2020

SOOO trying to get back to blogging. I used to blog about an hour a day. I lost a couple of years when i was blogging on the vista print web site. but there are still a few years on this wordpress website. also did VERY little on the Wix web site. here is link to that one. LINK ahahah i went from 2,000 words a day to only once a month if that. i found the Wix blog not user friendly AT ALL and moving here living in an old milk barn on a cattle farm there is always work to be done.

So i’m back. we will see If i can manage to share on here. One reason I like to blog is if people only knew what we do to raise their puppy. and i love to share the Goodness of our GOOD God! I breath in and i breath out and without God that would not even be possible. really for any of us. As God gave us life and breath.

So this has changed a little bit i’ll be learning a few new things. let me see if i can post a pix!

yeah it worked!!! Peonies from Granny’s garden. !!! off to a great start!

trying out this new Word press blog site. well i HAD a word press site and somehow while Wix.com was trying to help me it errased the saved pass word and since i can no longer assess my mail at Cox.net because they refuse to allow people to take their email with them when they move out of the area cox services (how stupid is that?!) i can’t reset it. SO here goes.. now this one is costing me monthly. thanks Wix for making my life more difficult.

now to see if i can add pix. had a full dog. i tell you just moving dogs in and out and giving every one enough out time is a full time job!
