Raising Two Welsh Cardigan Corgis

Links to this post
It's snowing!
Not that much snow
but enough for the puppies to enjoy.
Puppy Snow Day!

Banner and Libby love the snow.
"what, hold still for a photo?"

Chicken/egg update
Chickens are fine.
But the market we used to
get our pasture eggs from
doesn't carry them anymore.

I'll check at the market again
to make sure they
didn't just mislay them... ha!

Check out the difference
between the pasture raised chicken eggs

(dark gold...hens can eat grass, etc.)
and the cage free chicken eggs

(light yellow...hens not raised on pasture
...probably in a barn.)

I really miss raising our own hens
and enjoying their eggs.

Raising Two Welsh Cardigan Corgis

Links to this post
Yesterday the puppies had a good
experience at the vets meeting people
and getting another vaccination
which they didn't mind too much.

They both weigh
in the 20 lb. range.
They will each reach an
adult weight
around the 30 lb. range.

Today is back to rain and 
maybe snow on Saturday.

The puppies have been enjoying
the sunny days we have had.

Here are a bunch of photos.

Banner and the blueberry ball,
He is 20.8 pounds as of yesterday.

Banner watching Libby.
They run and play and
then stop and watch each other.
Libby is 21 pounds.
She is watching Banner.
Libby looks as though she has grown a horn.
They love their chew sticks.
The puppies started on dry kibble yesterday.
They seem to like it
better than the puppy mix
we were cooking up.

Chicken update:
The two old chickens are
doing fine.
