"Me and you and a dog named Ru"
Yep, we love our little doggie. Rufus is our faithful Morkie (Yorkshire terrier and Maltese mix) and we can't imagine life without him. He's the paint class mascot, chaser of chickens and heckler of goats. He doesn't know about the rabbits, so please don't tell him!
Chickens have been a part of our little homestead for about 4 years. We've expanded our flock quite a bit from those early days. We began with standard egg laying breeds, but lately we have been looking into diversifying our flock and adding breeds that lay colored eggs. That's been quite. delightful adventure in itself.
Goats, last but definitely not least in this little article. We love our goats. Maybelline, Sally (alpha female), Rosie, Stella, Mia, Jasmine, Helen, Callie and Cami, and Hope are some of the funniest creatures we've ever had the pleasure of being acquainted with. They're a little exasperating at times, but they're ours and we love them.
Our latest addition has been our cat, Benny. At first, we named him Penny because he was supposed to be a female kitten. But he is a boy, so he's Benny Cat. He's so funny regardless of what Jimmy says, "WE" are glad Benny is here.
