Doggy Diaries

A new shelter for the girls.

Rosie: It’s a lovely, (almost) Spring day here and all the children and grandchildren are out playing in the garden and throwing the ball for us.

The babies have been very naughty this morning. The chickens found their way into the paddock and Sundown in particular had great fun chasing them. He got into trouble though when only one poorly chicken was left and she was getting flustered at being by herself. Makes a change for somebody other than me to be told off for chasing chickens.

We had some surprising news from the vet yesterday. Unfortunately, Fairydust isn’t pregnant but Bambi is and about 5 months gone! Meaning that she must have got better acquainted with Angelo on their first meeting than we had previously thought! We can’t wait to see how pretty their cria will be.

The new shelter was put up at the beginning the month and the girls love their new home. Bambi, of course, was the first to investigate.

An update from Misty.

Misty: I can’t believe it’s been such a long time since we’ve updated you on what’s been going on here at Garsons Field! In 2014 we welcomed four new girls, and subsequently, three new babies. They have all gradually got used to us and have now settled completely in to our alpaca herd. Bambi, in particular, is a definite favourite of the boys. She has proven rather distracting for Angelo over the last few months.

At the end of 2013 the eldest grandchild and family moved back to North Somerset. We now get Cesca over to play every week and she’s great for cuddles and protesting when I lick her (with my lovely doggy breath).

Rosie, my mum, has a new boyfriend. He comes up the road most nights to visit her and she is always looking forward to seeing him (albeit by longingly gazing at him through the kitchen door). I don’t see what the fuss is all about and prefer to sit by the fire.

You’ll notice a new page on our site being uploaded soon – ‘Buffy & Spike’. Buffy and Spike are Blue Tits that moved into our webcammed birdbox last spring and had five chicks. They have all continued to come back to the bird feeder over the Autumn and Winter but we are now delighted that Buffy and Spike have decided to make our birdbox their home for another round of parenting.We’ll be keeping you up to date with their progress and posting photos from the webcam.
