I Kissed A Sheep And I Liked It!

As you can see, Abby is still here and of course, smiling!  She's happy as a clam to hop into bed and sleep with me.  Jessie still prefers his crate, but we have to set some ground rules for Abby.  For instance, NO food in bed!
 You can see how that is working out!  The little piggy even steals Jessie's food and he allows it to happen, so now I must feed them in separate rooms!  OH and that not so barky dog, has found her voice!  Perhaps too much, so I did some research.  The clicker method is not working, neither the spray to the face, so on Tuesday, her shock collar arrives! hee hee hee  Hopefully this will be the ticket.  Poor thing had been kicked by her original owner and had broken her leg.  They were going to put her down until the rescue group stepped in.  She seems to bark at all men including my husband and step son.  I started researching on shock collars and seems to be the way to go, however, it seems not all collars are alike.  Well, we shall soon see if we can keep our sanity.

 The fur kids love to go on walks together.  Abby will even give out a little  "AROOooo" sound while they both bounce up and down so they now have nick names, Kanga and Roo!

We stopped by a farm to visit the sheep.

The kids are so inquisitive!  Unfortunately, I missed the photo op. when Abby had gone up to a sheep that was laying down against the fence and she licked it on it's nose!  Too funny! It got up before I could get my camera out.

They also like to visit the chickens, ducks and goats.

Last week they got to go to a water park.  It was a hot day, so quite refreshing!

This summer I picked up a free standing hammock at a garage sale for $10.00!  The stand was in excellent condition but the hammock it self was ripped to shreds, so I made a new covering and pillow. There was just enough on the bolt to cover except I had to add a little extension on the back with another fabric, so I also made a pillow with it.  I am not the only one who is excited over it!
 As you can see, it's quite relaxing!

 Jessie is a little thief!  He steals my shoes and hides them!  I ended up using paper plates to walk across the rocks to find them hiding in the ivy.  Well, at least he didn't bury them!
I planted sunflowers along the side fence and they are now beginning to bloom!  I had gotten them in the first of June because of the flooding this spring, so I was beginning to wonder if they would actually appear this year.

Well speaking of appearing, you are probably wondering where all of the cats are.  No doubt they are laying low and hiding, perhaps even plotting revenge against the dogs!
While this isn't our cat, I had gotten this photo in an email and couldn't help but think this is what they are up to. Perhaps a little mutiny on the horizon?

I haven't focused much on creativity lately, but I have gotten some new atc's made for trades zetti style.

If you haven't guessed, this is Abby!
I also made one with Jessie!
Well, Unfortunately it had been awhile since I last posted. Summer just sort of has a way to slip away when you are having fun!  Until next time! Hopefully I will be back sooner!
