2018 Weekly Synopsis
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~April 8, 2018
Reports of snow abound. Thankfully, we have been missed by the Spring snow. We do not feel slighted in the least. Rain is here in its fullness this morning. Pitter-pattering and dropping its glory on the alfalfa and wheat fields.
Everywhere you looked trucks, tractors, and other farm equipment seem to be scurrying around–on the roads and in the fields. I cannot say what all is transpiring; however, whatever the crop needs the accommodations made.
The robins and other birds are busy. I saw one pulling a giant worm from the ground. The delight was evident. What a find. We have a lot of plump nightcrawlers, my friend. Eat up.
The Spring puppy watch is in full swim. The imminent arrival of pups expected means we are staying close to the home front. Special consideration is made on every level. If you are on the list for a puppy, and near enough to the top of the list, news should be forthwith. Please hold off writing us. Our Magic Ball is broken–we will contact you once we have pertinent news. Thanks for understanding. We appreciate your patience and zeal for the process. Ah, it is a bit like being pregnant–don’t you agree?
This Week on the Blog
We hope you enjoyed this week’s posts. We heard from Cliff a bit about the essential training points. Loki made a couple of appearances on the blog this week. He is training for Search and Rescue (SAR). We didn’t know he would be working on the Avalanche SAR skill set–he is going to be a bit too large to travel on Erica’s shoulders going forward. Regardless, he is getting rave reviews. We are so happy that she is sharing the story with us and it unfolds.
Sunday—April 1 — Beautiful Greta (Easter Bunny Ears)
Monday — April 2 — What Did You Do? (Loki in training)
Tuesday — April 3 — Getting Respect
Wednesday — April 4 — On the Snow (with Loki)
Thursday – April 5 — On Target (more from Cliff)
Friday — April 6 — The Question (sad truth about humans)
On a very personal note
Grandpa Cliff is a rockstar. Just ask Evangeline Grace and River Rose. They went around the farm with him. It is like a carnival ride I suppose. They helped a bit in the Greenhouse, but mostly it was River who wanted to help us plant.
This week Cliff meets with the Hematologist to see what he has to say. That is all we can say about this topic without more information.
