Umm, Chaz? About that "dog" on the left?

That's Charcoal Farkle.

She used to be a herd animal, until her herd ( the donkey, and another goat ) passed away within the last year.

Then she joined the Dog Pack. She follows the dogs around the yard. When the dogs go after a squirrel or an owl, she's right there, running with them.

Chaz, sorry to hear about your 'herd'. Sounds like a fine example of inter-species harmony, and it must have been hard to lose two.

Cool story. A video of this could go viral.

Well, I can't resist. This is a photo of some of Chaz' menagerie, some of them now gone. They're very photogenic. The Dobies seem to have been away.

Thanks, Anders.

The dogs know not to bother the livestock while they're eating.

I miss that donkey. She actually earned her keep around here. Besides the alarm clock function, as you can see in the picture, she got rid of tons of yard waste. Then made the best fertilizer.

I could dump a whole truck full of weeds or tree branches in front of her, and she wouldn't walk away from it until it was gone.

It's OK - we won't hold your love of donkeys as suggesting that you're a Democrat, or anything like that.

Apart from dinner time, did all the critters hang out together?

I just learned that our beloved Rat Terrier, Maddie, has cancer.

A bump had appeared along the outside of her mouth over the last couple of weeks- initially, the vet thought it was an abscessed tooth- they put her on antibiotics, and went in to remove the affected molar (and clean her teeth) today.

They found that it was actually a tumor that may have spread will into her oral cavity- given the proximity to her brain, this isn't good. We're going down to pick her up in a couple of hours, and discuss next steps with the vet.

I'm pretty sure I know what those steps will need to be, and I'm really quite affected by it. She's my girl. This hurts. A lot.

Oh Apogee... I am so sorry. Lost my girl 2 years ago. It really does still hurt but its softened over the years. Be strong for her, as you will, she's always been there for you and you will be for her.

Damn, Apogee, sad news. Hang in there. We know you'll do what's best.
