Dogs - man's best friend

Sheltie named Zoe

Here's my dog Zoe. She's almost 1.5 years old in this picture, taken in 2007.

Sadly, in July of 2013, we learned that Zoe had a very aggressive cancer.

The cancer she had is one that is difficult to treat, so today we made the decision to have Zoe put to sleep. Sparrow took her to the vet this morning, where our dog vet, Dr. M. gave her the drugs. After a few more breaths, her heart stopped and Zoe passed away quietly, in Sparrow's arms.

We have buried her next to Nick, our beloved wether goat who passed away in November of 2011.

Sniffers is a cocker spanial

Sparrow's dog Sniffers.

He was a rescue from a local animal shelter. We had him for 12 years and he was a wonderful companion dog, and also loved herding the chickens. Sniffers died of old age in October of 2013. He had a wonderful and full life and we will miss him.



Meet our newest dog, Ben

Ben was a rescue from a local animal shelter. We got him in October of 2013.

He is 2 years old and is a miniature Schnauzer. He's very sweet and very smart. He'll fit right in to our family! We're planning on Ben living a long and happy life here on the farm!
