Good morning!! My name is Gracie. I am Adam’s trusted Puggle. I just wanted to show you around the farm this morning. Adam’s been pretty busy lately with all the chores and his office and trying to be a human. I thought I’d show you what it looks like from my view.
So, follow me . . .
Much of the day is spent by my pack just napping in the kitchen. You know . . . Arizona is HOT! It’s 108 degrees out there right now.
But when I do get up and run around, I get to visit the chickens.
This is Rudy. He’s the rooster that takes care of all the chickens. He also wakes me up at 4am . . . what a bird brain.
Rudy chases around his 20 hens and seems to keep them in line. These three hens follow Adam around begging for food . . . now that I think of it . . . maybe they think they are dogs?
This is Annie. She’s not a puggle like me, but she seems like a true farm dog. She likes the chickens too. In fact, she likes to wait until all the chickens are gathered into one spot and then runs full blast into the middle, scattering the chickens . . . she calls it “chicken bowling.” Can you see her grinning?
Adam has a really nice mate. He calls her Tiffini. She came home with two of these furry small whiney things. Tiffini calls them “kittens.” They named them Aravis and Mini. All they ever do is drink milk and poop in a gravelly thing that smells terrible. They have blue eyes and when I look at them they smack me in the nose with their claws. I’m not quite sure about them yet.
When it is hot, the ducks get into the pond and bath. Somehow, they can stay on top of the water. Every time I’ve gotten in . . . I sink. Isn’t fair . . . but the water is always cool.
Sometimes, Tiffini empties out the leftovers from the big cold food container called the “fridge” onto the lawn. The chickens and ducks love that.
Oh yes, I can’t forget to tell you about the goats. They eat everything. I think that they’d even eat my ears if I remained still long enough. This is Daisy. Her head is quite hard. That’s all I’ll be saying about that.
Did I tell you about the ducks? They have the ability to create a mud hole out of a teaspoon of water. But their eggs are quite tasty.
Oh, the fish . . . I can’t forget the fish . . .
Adam calls them Koi. I’m not really sure what that means, but they are really cool to watch and they taunt me . . . constantly. However, Adam seems to want to keep them around because their waste feeds the plants and the plants clean the water. Adam says that it’s an aquaponics thing. I just know that I prefer the taste of the water to tap water.
But it’s not all fun an games around the farm. Occasionally, we have a few visitors. Gophers that is. Meet George, the King Snake. He climbs. He climbed up on an old shelf in the tack room this morning to catch the mouse that’s been living there. He chases mice and gophers . . . Oh, and he eats them too.
Well, that’s the farm. Come, again, and visit.
Hope you have a really nice Sunday.
One thought on “Happy Sunday . . . from the Perspective of a Puggle.”
Very interesting and fun presentation. Looks fun! Thanks for putting it together and sharing. You’re a good man and great doctor. Bonita Skidmore
