Weekend Puppy Update-

A week in the life of a golden retriever puppy.  It's been alternating rain, wind and sunshine. As I mentioned he loves to bounce on the pool cover to get wet..

Mort, the cat, is looking on saying "what the heck are you doing?"

And at 16 weeks he is starting to lose his baby teeth. I'm excited those little needles will be gone.

A highlight Saturday was his nose to nose introduction to "Thomas" my 11 hand, 13 year old Welsh pony. Bethany rescued him when she was a vet tech for our horse vet 10 years ago. She nursed him back to health for 3 months and brought him home to me Christmas eve. What a surprise, I had NO idea!  The trailer ride was horrendous and another story for another time!  I was so proud of my animal kingdom today when a 400 lb. pony and a 40 lb. puppy were as gentle as two little babies as they explored each other.

This is the shot! (Wish it wasn't so ugly out there..can't wait for spring!)

Here is Bethany's  handsome 18 yr. old Thoroughbred named "Willie":

Thomas is saying "Have a nice Sunday"  "give me some treats!"
