We've been talking about a new puppy for a while now to keep Peedie company and we wanted a PD mark 2. So the other day, as you do, I went by the breeders house on the way home from work to 'register' our interest in one in the future. As fate would have it, he had an 8 week puppy looking for a home by the sea, we have a home by the sea.
In fact we've expanded by 5, as well as the puppy we've got given 4 light sussex *perhaps crosses we're not sure* chickens from Graemsay. I have no photos as they don't stay still - but you can see them here at Sian's - the ones she kindly gave me are white and black.
The hens appear to be escape artists and had not only got out the byre they were in but were half way down our track towards Sian today - thankfully a bit of grub coaxed them back into our general area. And, at bed time I found them all tucked up in the byres with the others - so they are clearly here to stay. Phew.
So aside a busy day at work today, new chooks to get to know and giving a very tiny puppy a lift home - lifes its kinda normal chaotic self!
Have a lovely day yourself!! And Haggis, the new pup tips his paw to you all. The chooks (currently nameless - although we might call them after flavours of crisps as they arrived in crisp boxes!
