    Zeus is an australian shepherd, australian cattle dog cross. He's the sweetest thing.

    We got him from humane society in Hermiston. Athena came from a guy in Hermiston. She's just a farmyard german shepherd. We'd had a breakin right after we started moving to this property and needed a dog bigger than my old schipperke. My DH had always wanted a GSD, so we got a puppy. They are only a month apart. Athena is such a baby. She still thinks she's a little dog. They grew up with the chickens, so I've never had a issue other than them eating the poop.

    It's the beginning of pasty butt probably. Just take a warm wet paper towel and soak her bum on it (today I actually sat one of my newbies in a teacup full of warm water because she was really pasted closed) and pull off the poop.

    Ah, I figured that might have been the case. I didn't know if it had more "worm" than "dingleberry" properties. Thanks!!

    Aren't they fun?! My broody just took the last of them for the night; she's now sitting on 8 and I'm so happy not to have to raise them myself!

    I bought about 10 starter grape plants all different varieties. After five years I have one, yep one, that has survived. Sadly there has never been any grapes. However, we get a LOT of rain and I think it just drowns them.
