Soon, I Promise

It's been an uber-busy month here with family visiting from New Zealand, going to Oregon to attend the NASSA (Shetland breeders) annual meeting at Black Sheep Gathering, as well as day trips and shopping and eating and...
Well, you get it.
But today, if you have a moment, please stop in at Rascal's World (http://welcometorascalsworld.blogspot.com) and give Leigh a hug. Rascal crossed the Rainbow Bridge this afternoon, leaving a hole in many people's hearts, especially Leigh's.
There is a new star in the heavens this evening...

You went to the Black Sheep Gathering? Lee and I were so disappointed that we missed it this year due to having the flu. My neighbor went, as she goes every year.

We hope your family visit has been great. We too were saddened to read about Rascal's passing. I was hoping that he could hold on a little longer. Poor thing. We've lost a couple of our cats recently (one a very old girl and another a quasi-barn cat, who was very sweet, but he developed a blood disease). I was just thinking about your sheep the other day and wondering about them. Needless to say, I still shudder when I think of that horrible dog attack last winter. Our main LGD, Bear, spends the most part of the hot day hidden in a cool spot resting up, but every evening, like clock work, he makes his way out and gets ready to "go to work" the night shift. He stretches and then lolls in a certain spot, right in amongst the alpacas and as the night falls, he's up and about working the fences with his partner. Over in the larger pasture, the 2 other LGDs will end up with the sheep and goats wherever they're staying at night. Anyway, look forward to reading more posts when you get the chance.
