People loved my collar! It's a 1" wide (DM: Nola's skinny neck can take the wider width, even though she's only 10.5lbs) "Love in many languages" no buckle slide collar from The Collar Shop. I love it! It's Valentine's Day themed but subtle enough to work any time of the year. I'm wearing it in the header above.
My didn't just look huge in yesterday's photo; they are huge, at least for my size. Dachshunds, being earth dogs, have very large, webbed front paws. Our back feet are much smaller; the breed standard calls for back feet half the size of the front feet. See?
|Teeny tiny itty bitty back paw.|
Okay, now that that's out of the way, onto the update! We have quite a collection of creatures in this family. We have WEINER dogs, PUSSY cats , COOTER turtle and CHICKS hens.
What did you think I meant? ;)
We're up to...25 chickens (I think?) and 1 duck. All of these birds are used for eggs only, but we'll hopefully be getting some to eat soon along with a few more egg layers/pretty birds, a duckling or two, and a couple of turkeys.
|They're all suppose to be girls. We shall see! There's 7 of them.|
|The peeps have started letting the chickens free range. Surprisingly, we leave them alone. I just enjoy barking at them and herding them, but don't hurt them.|
|If you look closely, you can see the chicken looking at the camera has feathered feet.|
|This gate is suppose to keep me out of the garden.|
|What's left of the radishes.|
|Our peas are under here to protect them from the cold.|
|This is Mom's favorite bird. A super tiny White Leghorn.|
|Duck on the right, obviously.|
|Isn't this girl freaky? She's a Turken/Naked Neck. Creepy as fuck, but great personality and lays every day. We also have a buff colored one who didn't feel like getting her picture taken (can you imagine?!).|
|Down/stay in the coop. Pretty impressive, if I do say so myself!|
|DM: I love this girl. My heart dog. Dog of my heart.|
