When we moved into this Bedlam Farm, one of the first things we built was a special fence – a country kennel – for our dogs. They have plenty of room to run in and Fate can keep a close eye on the sheep who come into the pasture to graze.
Bud and Zinnia are hole diggers, they each come up with old bones and desiccated rawhide which they try to bring into the house.
Bud is a weather wimp and in cold or wet weather, he retreats into Frieda’s old dog house. When the dogs want company, they come and scratch at Maria’s studio door, she is happy to welcome them in.
Zinnia is still growing, we call her Baby Huey. She bangs into things. I’m always amazed at how tough Bud is, he flips Zinnia over by getting under her and somehow turning her over. I don’t know quite how he does it, but I do know he has no idea that he is small, and she has no idea that she is big.
