Wire Fox Duck

It's been raining so much here in Oklahoma that I'm begining to feel a bit waterlogged. I can swim laps in the backyard if I want, and we don't even have a pool. Good thing I know how to dog paddle like a puddleduck. Yesterday Mom and Dad went to Tulsa to see a friend in the hospital, and they got caught in a storm that drenched poor T-town in five inches of rain. Yeah, I'm glad I wasn't riding in the pickup on that trip. Thunderstorms, darkness, floods and white-knuckle driving is not my idea of fun. Still, I am hoping that all the rain will make the fall leaves prettier this year. It seems to make a difference.

We've been busy here on the farm, what with pigs having babies and the fall show season starting. My Boy took his cow Ruby Tuesday to the fair and won a blue ribbon. She seems to love My Boy almost as much as I do. Well, you just keep head-bumping him Ruby, but you'll never fit on his lap.

Dad picked up another rescue pup. She's an adult Boxer but only weighs thirty-three pounds. She's very thin and had some parasites, but nothing a little TLC won't cure, the vet said. She is eating well, and should gain a lot of weight over the next few weeks.

Just look at those beautiful eyes! And her tail wags almost as much as mine. She's such a sweetheart. We've yet to come up with a good name for her. A name's got to be perfect, you know. Gotta put some thought into it. A bit of class for this lady, because I know behind the neglect and thinness is a gorgeous gal!

Tell, the new puppy is bootiful. I don't have any ideas about family tends to name pets in strange ways...their last doggie before me was Nigel (Frederick Nigel Karl Vladmir, Duke of Earl and King of Sway, to be exact) so I am really glad I came already named.

Muzzer says she looks like a Pretty Baby...see what I mean?

We've gotta go straight to commenting about that beautiful girl you rescued and adopted! You KNOW that makes our hearts sing!!!! (How about Melody? Fit for a pretty girl whose tune just turned from a sad song to a beautiful ballad.)

We're soooooo happy you've made your family hers.

Jake and Fergi xxoo


Hi Tell,

We wish we lived on a farm with cows and piglets. What fun!
