Our First Farm Babies!

Well, we had our first farm babies born today!  It is a pretty funny story actually.  Both Kevan and I were on conference calls in different rooms.  We both saw something out the window and noticed that 2 people were walking into our barn.  It was kind of scary at first because you wonder why someone is on your property and why would they be going into an old barn.

Then, Kevan walked out there to see what was going on.  I looked out the window and saw a teenage girl run out of the barn and down our driveway to the neighbor house across the street.  I asked to be excused from my call for a few minutes.  Then, I sped out the other door to make sure Kevan was okay.  I got really scared when I saw someone in black come out of one of the rooms toward him.  Well, he told me everything was fine and to go back to my conference call.

Turns out the neighbor girls noticed blood on their dog earlier in the day and then they followed her to our barn to see what was up.  Turns out she had 6 puppies under one of the floors of our barn.  I wasn't able to take a picture of where they were because it was so far under the barn, but I did get a picture once they were out (the neighbors came and got them).  Look, their eyes weren't even open yet!

Here is the mama (Casey).  She is a really good dog.  She follows us around and rolls around on our porch so we pet her belly.  She has two different colored yes which is a little freaky, but she is sweet.

I'm sad the babies aren't in our barn anymore.  I can't wait until we have another animal in the barn!  Someday!  Once we are here full time.  :o)


  1. Oh my goodness Jayde - is that the dog that was so friendly and always came to visit when we were there at Christmas? She is so sweet - puppies are adorable! Mom

  2. Yes. It is the same doggie mom. She is so sweet. When they were taking the puppies out of her "birth area" she didn't know what to do. She didn't growl or anything, just whined. She kept going back and forth from the laundry basket until all the puppies were out. Then, she followed them all the way home.
