Goodbye my Sophie love

Sophie went to doggy heaven this week.  She was a good old dog and I will miss her.  Before the vet came to our house we did a few last things.  Of course we went for a walk.  Like all dogs Sophie loved her walks.  Then we fingerprinted or I guess that would be paw painted.  And before she left she had a treat of chocolate.  Thirteen years was a long time together:
In her finest
Naughty on the quilt
Last love fest

A little fingerpainting on the backyard walkway

On her pillow
Six weeks old

Eleven tornados in 2 days. Yikes

Oh my!  I thought our rain would never stop in May.  It rained- and I mean RAINED- 29 out of the 31 days in May.  June started with a couple of sunny days sprinkled with afternoon showers but the storms came back again with a vengeance.  Lightning, thunder, hail and RAIN for 4 hours Thursday night.  Then Friday Lightning, thunder and rain on high speed.   I have vowed not to spend one more *$*@%^*!!!!! dime on my garden this year.  It is 90% for waste.  I planted these beautiful irises last year....I love the really dark purple lower part and then the storm
Wow it is no wonder I named one of my little bucklings  "Storm"  I should have named the other "Thunder"

MaMas and boys

CoCo and Storm

Sunflower and Ash

These boys are growing- 3 weeks and they have mastered the barnyard obstacle course but they do stop and snuggle with their MaMas...  yes...these boys have two MaMas   Of course Sunny gave birth to both of them and CoCo did not have any babies this time but CoCo makes a wonderful Aunt.  In the goat world kids tend to stick to their own mothers but they love Aunt CoCo too.
