How are all of you and your fur kids coping with these crazy times we are living through? I don't know about you, but it's times like these that I'm grateful for my four legged family members.
Hello, how do you do-just before we left the Joplin Humane Society on July 10th.
And speaking of fur kids, I have an introduction to make. After losing both my girls within six months, it was time to add to our pack. Now we still have three oldsters with us; Dylan (age 15), Penny (age 11) and, of course he who once was the baby, Niki (age 9).
I am thrilled to introduce Darcy, who has just recently joined the family. Michael has been wanting someone to help him take care of the place, as you might say. We finally headed down to The Joplin Humane Society and he met Darcy (whose name was Bobby at the time).
Going For a Ride!
Darcy is part Border Collie and at ten months old, a bundle of energy. I think that is why his original family gave him up. He needs space to just run like crazy.
|Darcy loves to swim, which does not make a fishing loving grandson too happy. Darcy scares away the fish!|
We’ve taught him to sit and not chase chickens. He would still love to catch a sheep (he can’t get in their field, fortunately). If Covid weren’t upon us, we would have him enrolled in Puppy School.
|I'm such a help! Catch any fish?|
When our grand old Black Lab, Bennett passed in January of ’19, things just haven’t been the same. I don’t know if Darcy will fill his shoes but we’re already pretty crazy about the guy.
If you have read Jane Austin, something might hit you about both names. Yes, occasionally, I name our dogs after Jane Austin characters. And Darcy is a fitting name for this dapper boy.

That all I have today. It’s been a nice feeling to get to talk about a new fur baby. Has anyone else added someone new to their life?
Take care & Stay safe
