Six weeks ago today, seven beautiful little pups entered the world. They've evolved into adorable fluff balls from sightless, wriggling pups in such a short period of time. In two short weeks they'll be off to their forever homes. Most of them get to fulfill their breeds true calling to guard livestock. This has been such a huge learning experience, and I've loved every second of it!

I often think of the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears when I head out to feed the goats. My little darlings are well fed, but they always act like they're starving. Funny thing is the goats never seem happy with a filled bucket. I head into their pen, head to the first feeder, and all the goats follow eagerly. They start snacking, as I head to the next feeder they follow, waiting to see if that food will get more exciting. This goes on until all of the feeders are full. It's like they need to figure out which feeder is just right. I've got a group of little Goldilocks!
Fall has come to Colorado, despite the warm temperatures. Mother Nature seems to get a little confused when she comes here. We'd have loved this weather back in July! Winter prep is on my mind. The pups are growing in leaps and bounds, and get cuter every second. My bucks in San Quentin stink to high heaven, and I'm eagerly awaiting for my does to go into heat.
The frenzied pace of the past few weeks will hopefully be over soon. This morning, I can sit and relax. Actually enjoy a cup of coffee, jot down my thoughts. My younger girls don't have school, and the older kids can drive themselves. I'm slowly planning my day, being quiet and peaceful. It feels so good!
