Photo Challenge #16 - ANIMALS

Better late than never.....and I think (and hope!) that I made it before Helen's weekly cutoff for putting together the photo challenge collage that she does so well!!

Here are my contributions for this week......

Our puppy, Lacey, who is now 9 months old. She's on my *%#@ list this evening as she got into trouble while in her kennel today. She broke the bottom tray and distroyed the carpeting underneath.....in the corner of James' room! Just when you want to throttle them they do something cute or endearing. Kinda like kids, eh??!!! LOL She'll always be loved and well cared for in this family and this is the first real damage she's ever done. The human element was definitely involved there, too, as she wasn't left with a bone to chew on. Hopefully, we've ALL learned from this experience!! Oh well, I didn't mean to go off on a tangent.....just a bit frustrated tonight!!

Moving on, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to include a picture of "the girls" from the dairy up the road, enjoying their evening meal!!
And my friend, Debbie, currently has a whole bunch (flock?) of goats on her pasture and she invited us up to have a look. I think there are around 60 goats in total.

We got there at feeding time and had a great time watching them. They are difficult to photograph, thought, as they are in constant motion. James fell in love with a month-old baby, that they've named "Bart", who is blind. He is so sweet and is really struggling.....he really tugs at the heartstrings!! James can't wait to go back!

These were my two favorite pictures from this afternoon's adventure with the goats.

Really great photos. The one of Lacey is adorable. Is she a flatcoated retriever by any change?

Lenore, great photos!! Lacey is still a pup so bare with her. Believe me you will have more frustrating moments with her, lol. Love the cows. I grew up on a dairy farm and once in a while I miss not being close to the cows. Great goat photos too!
