Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. We've had lots goin on round here, some good, some bad. Guess I'll start with the bad and get it done though it's hard to write about.
Our Tye crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge last month, it wasn't totally unexpected being he was gonna be 17 in Feb. But, still we wasn't ready to let him go. Mostly all him did was sleep & he had dementia accompanied by "sundowners". The sundowner part of the dementia meant he'd be up n pacing all night. Being mainly blind n mostly deaf this meant midnight tumbles down stairs!!! No, he never gotted hurt but, we worried what would happen if Mom n Dad was working and him felled and did get hurt. Sooo, rather than let that happen, it was decided to let him pass over in a more gentle fashion....
This was Tye as a wee pupster encountering their old cat Jigs. Yep even as a pupster Tye was willing and ready to be the boss!!!
Tye LOVED, LOVED, LOVED kids. He did get to meet Lincoln for a sniff test so that was good.
Tye was very special being a mix of many things, but mostly terrier (terror) and a little bit of butthead mixed in. He was Chris dog mostly, and if you've even seen those commercials that make you cry when a dog greets hims soldier coming home, you shoulda seen Tye when Chris comed home. He outdid all those greetings in a big way. Tye was small but, did everything in such a big way. While being Chris's growing up dog, when Chris did come home Tye stayed with Mom n Dad. Tye loved everbody but, always knew and understood who his boy was.
Christmas is gonna be hard this year, Tye always unwrapped all his own presents then went to make sure he got to help unwrap everbody elses too.
R.I.P. Tye guy
Now the good, Grandfoal is growing sooooo fast!!! Lincoln will be three months soon and is already in six months clothes. I've met him several times now though he's yet to meet me cause he's always sleeping when in the barn. Lincolns Mom started a new job which has her out of state with training a bit. This is good for Mom (specially missing Tye) cause with Chris working AND in college, Lincoln comes here lots n lots. Another reason for less computer time!!!
Some funny stuff, we got lotsa rain at Thanksgiving time. Ivy and Promise are trying to figure Maizee out and what she's wanting to do.
Mom calls Maizee "crazy Maizee" now cause her runs around splashing and chasing the puddles all about!!! This went on for an hour even though it was very cold out! She's a real hoot!
Since it be my blog, had to include me! My paddock got a bit sloppy from the rains. Not near as bad as the floods at the old place thankfully, it drains better and my barn n patio stays nice n dry. Still I prefer to be out even when I can go in. Bummer that I'm off my pasture for the winter so's it doesn't get all destroyed and the grass will be good come springtime. Ooooh, springtime how I miss you!
I'll try to post more often, probably not as much as before on account of Mr. Lincoln n all.
