Puppy dog's tales!

Oh my, what a carry on this afternoon when I got home from the office..my darling daughter greeted me with tear stained cheeks and the look of one who has suffered greatly...why I hear you ask? Well she went to see the hens as usual after school and our cockerel, Marmaduke, crept up behind her and pecked her legs. Apparently her screams could be heard all over the village!
The villain of the piece!!!


Later on her day went from bad to much, much worse when Hamish dared to eat her lollipop whilst she was answering the phone, for me, being in the bath as I was...so of course it was all my fault and so on and so on..get the picture!

Villain number two!








He is actually the gentlest of creatures and sadly a bit battle scarred and moth eaten now. But we love him to pieces. He will be 13 in a couple of weeks and we have had him from a pup of 8 weeks.

Arrh bless your poor little girl must of been quite distressed! Lovely photo's of your pets we are discussing keeping chicken's really like the idea but think we will wait till Elliotts a bit older as he would probably squash them!

Oh what beautiful pictures of the dogs. I found you through curlewcountry and thought we sounded a bit alike. I live on a farm and don't have chickens but like growing veg and attempting to craft. I am at www.retrorose.typepad.com if you want to call over.
