Today's post is all about our kids' animals these days.
Here are Puddleglum and Donald, Benaiah's ducks that he got for his birthday.
Then there is Chewbacca, William's hen that his little friend at church gave him.
And these are our three sweet dogs. This picture makes me laugh because it captures their personalities perfectly. On the far right is Afayo. He was abused as a puppy, then found by a German lady, then he escaped her yard and found me while I was out running. Then she gave him to us. He totally has a dog version of PTSD, but will defend us fiercely (more than the other two). Most of the time though, he hides in the kennel or near it and sits with his front legs crossed. The dog on the far right is Faith. She belongs to Matthew and is a little crazy about shadows and butterflies. She was fixated on my shadow when I took the picture. haha! I think between her and Afayo, we could probably run a psych ward for dogs. Haha! In the middle is Heidi and she belongs to Katelyn. She's fairly strong-willed and eager for attention but still very sweet. We love our pups...they do a great job being sweet to all our visitors but super attentive at night. Our guard tells us that they take up stations at different parts of our yard and if one starts barking, they all run to see what's up. I find it amazing with all that happens on this compound that they can still distinguish between what is normal and fine and what is not. Plus, I think they are just a good looking bunch! 😉
And they are well loved. Yup...there is a dog under there... haha! And somewhere in the house are Talitha's kitties...Ginger and Schmooy, but they were in hiding and not available to have their pictures taken at the time of this posting. 😊
