Jake is officially a swimmer. It makes me relax just a tad. If he should ever fall in a pool, I know he's safe to make it to the side. But gosh I hope he never has access to the pool without us!
We live at the base of a mountain community. They got quite a bit of snow last week. Most of the folks that live up there come down to our town to shop. There was a ton of snow at the stop lights this week, from it rolling off the cars and trucks as they entered town.
It's 9am and I'm going to go back to bed. I dropped Jake off at school. I wish that it was easier than Wednesday. It's not easier enough. Maybe sleep will help me not be so sad that he's not here.
Well Large Marge made her debut at the trial this past Friday. She was great, not perfect, but very good. The mistakes she made were just puppy and inexperience caused mistakes. She did nothing obnoxious and nothing to disappointment me. She confused me with some of her actions on her second run, but I attribute that to immaturity and inexperience, both excuses that only time and more trialing can fix.
Well, I had a pretty good weekend. I went up north to Central California for a dog trial. It was just a fun day, not a sanctioned event and the entries were few this time around. It was Marge's first trial and she was stellar!
I pooped. Yeah for me. It had been 3 days and I was so miserable. Nothing was working. Not extra water, fiber, stool softeners, even the prunes I bought and ate yesterday didn't kick in soon enough. I finally used a suppository and it was so worth it. I feel so much better. I don't even care that Jake got up at 5am screaming. Well, I care for him, but not upset for me. It gave me the chance to put him in bed with daddy while I sat on the toilet for 30 mins. They are currently watching Sesame street and evidently Elmo is a hit still!
Lamb number 4 was born early Sunday morning. Another boy. He's awful cute. Jake thinks the new lambs are so much fun. After about 3 days old they get too fast for him to capture and they won't hold still for him in his lap. We have to be quick about taking these pics.
The little black lamb's tail came off. His horns are coming in fast! He will be a butcher lamb so nobody get attached via photos (giggle).
Here are all 4 lambs together. 3 boys and the one little girl, Gordita. She's the brown one. So cute to watch them all play.
