What A Zoo

This weekend the project that took priority was enclosing the back of the catch pen with mesh hog panel so we can contain the dogs out there. One of the lovely joys of living out in the country is that every Tom, Dick and Harry will dump their beloved Jake or Sam or Muffie on the side of the road after they've tired of them. Hence, "Jasper" arrived at our place. He is nothing but a huge lovable puppy. Did I say puppy? Yes, and all the antics that come with him. We worked so hard out there in the heat getting the pen ready and brought our dogs out there. "Jasper" was at our feet wherever we went, right in the big middle of everything.

He's the golden retriever plopped down in the pool. Isn't Gretchen cute in there? Okay, so we get the fence finished and walk away to see if ours are going to find a way out. Who digs a hole but Jasper! And then follows Gunner and Gretchen. We gave up and let them out. Harley stayed right with us but Howard, the Basset Hound, wants to wander. That's how he came into our family. We found him in the middle of traffic in Magnolia. The slug doesn't much like it out there. So to conclude this story, we loaded up our babies (and that's a comedy in itself- I have to use a ramp to get the 65lb slug in my truck) to come home and Jasper was running behind us down the road. We have checked with neighbors up and down the road but no one claims him. It'll be interesting to see if he's out there when we get back.

We were hoping to stay out at the RV but still need to get some kinks worked out. Some electrical issues with the outlets and need a cap for our Stop & Go Potty. Always something. So now our goal is next weekend to stay out there.

No showings this weekend on the house. Pretty disappointing but I'm not going to get down about it. I know that God will take care of it.

Happy Trails...


  1. What a menagerie!
    Hope y'all get moved out there soon and the house sells quickly.
    Happy Trails to you!

  2. Good luck on selling your house.
