Puppy day!

September 29th, 2010 by Heidi

This morning we took all eight puppies into for their first vet visit. They were all very brave and passed with flying colours. As they were 8 weeks old on Monday they are ready to move on to new homes.

Today we had a day trip to Picton for both business and pleasure. Shop business, farm business and fun!


To really appreciate the good times …

August 31st, 2010 by Heidi

There was a very different post intended for today, but things don’t always go the way we plan, and sometimes the world feels the need to make sure you can truly appreciate the good times.


And then there were 10!

I haven’t talked much about the little family, that arrived back in June, to spend the summer here with us, and now they have gone!

Quite the surprise arrival!

August 3rd, 2010 by Heidi

Saturday evening we had friends come for a BBQ and a few drinks, it was quite late and we had had a few drinks when I heard unusual noises from Willow and Aspen. It was dark so of course I sent Steve to check on them!

There are some pretty cool perks to working for a butcher’s shop, one of them being the tasty things to eat we get to enjoy, and share. And right now Charlie thinks I have the best job in the whole world!


Boots ~ 25th September 2000 – 5th July 2010

July 6th, 2010 by Heidi

10 years ago a friend at work asked for my help. He was moving in with his girlfriend who had this kitten. He was horribly allergic to the kitten, so the kitten needed a new home. He knew I was a cat lover, and would take good care of him, I couldn’t say no.


Wooly Wabbits

We added two new fluffy friends to our family – a pair of pedigree English Angora rabbits – they are 5 month old sisters called Cookie Monster and Talya and they are just like giant teddy bears!


Distress call!

June 18th, 2010 by Heidi

Last week we had a distress call from a friend, one of her neighbour’s barn cats had moved into her barn and had four kittens. Which in itself wasn’t that big a problem, but then one of her tom cats ate one of the kittens! She didn’t know how to keep them safe and asked for our help.
