On Sunday Lily found a snapping turtle lounging in the field. Once I got out there to take a picture, Lily felt a little braver and ended up sticking her snout into the turtle’s face. Yep! Lily was bitten by the turtle on her snout with no serious damage to Lily.


Ducks & Fish

I have been seeing a pair of ducks swimming in the pond over the past few days. They seem to be very much at home, at least until the dogs scare them away. Also, I should be getting some blue gills to stock the pond in the next few days. I can hardly wait. And, I almost forgot, I saw a very small turtle trying to make its way across the pond. How cool is that?


First the dogs do some dirt grazing…

Then they wash it all down, and off, with some pond water.
