Biggest Adventure Ever and Mom Didn't Have Her Camera!

For Memorial Day Mom took Ben and I to Uncle John's farm! It's been so hot in NC and we spent some time swimming.

And Uncle Mike threw some sticks for us!

Then we got a giant surprise!! We went down the road to meet some news friends...

First we met this big guy, Mr. Turkey (yup, that's his real name). He looked pretty tasty and Mom didn't like our behavior, so we got put on a leash...

Then we met this guy. Yup, a goat!! And his whole goat family! Mom let me run lose and my Aussie instincts went into high gear.

I herded these guys around the field and through the barn 10 times. I wasn't sure exactly what to do but it sure was fun! Mom has never seen me so happy or move so fast!

And then I got to meet some sheep! Unfortunately, Mom didn't have her camera throughout this entire amazing adventure. By the time she got back, the sheep were on their way far from me!

They ran into the woods and wouldn't come out!

Mom tried to make me reenact the entire event but it was super hot and I was panting like a crazy fool!

Then Mom gave Ben a chance... What did he do? This!! He was SCARED of the animals. A Border Collie, scared? I couldn't believe it!

Hope your Memorial Day weekend was as fun as mine!

Fun in the Sun

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a good spring! We've been having tons of fun hanging out in the backyard.

Ben's been socializing with the neighbors... Too bad she is only 5 and likes to practice her ball throwing skills against the fence. The ball never makes it over. It's a slow form of torture for Mr. Ben.

He keeps a close on the whereabouts of the ball though. Here she is burying it. What a tragedy!

Ellie has been busy testing all the delicacies of the yard. Here she is eating a delicious mini pine cone. Yum...

And some sticks for dessert?

I've been getting lots of exercise while patrolling the yard! It's a hard job but someone has to warn Mom every time a leaf falls or a kid cries 3 blocks away.

Other than that, we've just been relaxing in the sun.

And breathing in the fresh air.

Life is good!

Happy Easter Everyone! Guess what time it is?

Bunny ear time!!

"No! Why do we always have to dress up!?! The ears are SOO heavy!"

"Just shut up and put them on so we can get some treats!"

"Put 'em on and do cute stuff! Eat some grass like a real bunny!"

"Or sit in the sun and pose!"

"This is torture!!!!"

"How can Ben put up with this, too?!"

"He even plays ball with the ears on"


Gangsta bunny Ben...

Family photo attempt!

Mom even woke up Molly for some torture time!

She's as unhappy as Ellie about being a bunny :)

Hope y'all had a good Easter!
