I’m a Mama Dog Too!

BarbarellaHi everyone, I know I haven’t been posting, but something happened last weekend… I had my PUPPIES! Which means I’m a mama dog too.  It looks like I’m not going to be posting as much any more.  I now have a bigger responsibility.  Since I now have puppies, I get lots of puppy cuddling 24/7.



And now if y’all will excuse me I have to attend to my puppies.


Mama Dog Break

MiniOK to start off I just want to say that I love my puppies, but sometimes I get a little board staying with them all day. When pups are first born you have to stay with them almost 24/7, and by the time they get old enough to where you can leave them for 30 minutes or so, you sure are ready for that break.

I finally get to take those breaks now! I spent my first one practicing some of my old tricks like: pick it up, keep it, drop it, high five, bang and leave it.



I also went for a walk. My walks aren’t your normal walks, a normal walk usually has a leash attached. On my kind of walk there is usually not a leash. I get to run, trot or walk at what ever speed I want as long as I don’t get too far away.




Walks without a leash are the best ones, because you can take detours and pickup a rabbit scent.

A lot of the times when I pickup a scent I find what it belongs to, but thanks to my SHORT SHORT legs I have never caught a rabbit.


When we got back in I found out it was bath time. I don’t mind taking a bath, because afterwards I get my ears cleaned which feels soooo good, and I get more hugs and kisses.


In case you’re wondering, I didn’t find a rabbit on this walk.

DIY Lounge collar

BarbarellaThis is our first do it yourself project we have ever done on our blog so we hope the instructions are easy to understand.  In order to make a lounge collar you need the items listed below.

  1. Bungee cord (any color)
  2. kite string
  3. scissors
  4. key ring
  5. Measuring tape


First you need to loosely measure around your dog’s neck and add about 2 inches.


Cut the bungee cord and put the key ring on the bungee cord (as shown in picture below). We used about 3 feet of kite string for Penny’s 12” lounge collar. You will probably need more string for a bigger collar.


You need to wrap about 1” of the bungee cord thru the ring then tie the kite string around the bungee cord close to the ring (as shown below) but leave enough room for the ring to slide. I wrapped the bungee cord to where it was doubled for 1”


Then wrap the kite string tightly around the bungee cord multiple times and tie it at the end as many times as needed.


And just repeat on the other side.


Now your dog has their own lounge collar. No more itchy necks because you have a tight collar on 24/7.


We wear these all the time and only put our collars on if we go outside. These lounge collars may not last as long as the fancy ones off the internet, but these don’t cost $50 either.

Taking over!

BarbarellaI guess y’all heard that Mini won’t be posting as much anymore.  Which means I’M TAKING OVER THE BLOG!!! (for awhile).  I hope that I can keep y’all entertained with stuff here on the farm.  Today I’m going to show y’all something, something that is not good (not good at all).  My coat doesn’t fit me any more! 102_6457

And that’s not all… My rain coat doesn’t even fit me (and it’s suppose to be cold all this week ).  Being pregnant is a little bit of a pain but It’s also nice.  If you want to see all the reasons, click here to get to Mini’s post:  Being a mama dog part 1.


Since I’m pregnant I got this new coat… Well it’s not exactly a coat, but it’s something to be warm in (it was made out of an pajamas pants leg).  It also fits around my belly and it’s not tight so now I have something to wear.


It’s very comfortable.


Busy Mama Dog

MiniHi everyone, I now have puppies! I am going to layoff posting for awhile. Being a mama dog keeps me busy so I can’t post as often as I used to. Don’t worry though, I might post a few things when I have time and something interesting to share.
