Herd Dog – Thankful Thursday

So, went to let my dog out this morning and discovered that five of our ten doe rabbits had escaped from their large kennel. The door hadn’t been shut al the way and they had wedged themselves out. Vincent had chased two of them back into the garage that the rabbits live in (it doesn’t hold any cars or car stuff, it just holds rabbits, hay and other animal feed, don’t worry). One of them kept running in and out of the garage and he’d chase her back in whenever she’d run out.

He doesn’t bite them or anything, just herds them back towards the garage and then to one of the corners in the garage so I can pick them up by their scruff and cuddle them before putting them back in their kennel.

Only found four of them, but that’s more than I had hoped for when I realized how many were missing and the fact that they’ve had over four hours of being out of their kennel alone outside.

So today, I’m grateful that the rabbits stayed close enough by that Vincent was able to herd them back to the garage and I’m grateful that Vincent has learned to herd rabbits. (Because he has, be can herd rabbits, but not goats, for some reason…)

Check out the orignal Thankful Thursday.

This Morning

Fingers hardly moving, too stiff with frost it seems.
Renders me unable to do more than get ready for the day
Only to spend several hours huddled beneath blankets.
Zipping through the day, everyone else is fine; they’re not cold!
Eventually I get up and move about the kitchen with the oven on.
Now that I’ve made cookies to eat with tea, I’m warm as can be.

Spent my morning like this until my younger brother came over and used cookie making as an excuse to get me warmed up. It wasn’t for the cookies because he knew he wouldn’t be able to stay long enough for them to finish cooking. Now I’m warm and I have cookies!

Now!

Now, I want it now!
Are you listening to me?
Pay attention!
If I have to ask one more time…
I will push this lid closed!
I’m doing it!
Fine! I’ll pretend,
I never wanted it at all.
So I shall sit and sulk.
Humph.
