Red Dog Retrieves!

O.K. She is not red, but red-gold. Beatrix, my beloved and adoring Labrador retriever ( shown here with my hubby ) is fanatic about retrieving. All my Labs are! Below is a video of Beatrix retrieving a tennis ball from the lake at our family 4th of July celebration. This is one of many, many retrieves and often she swam quite far out into the lake, in the boating lanes, to dutifully retrieve the tennis ball. Beatrix's mother, sister, and fellow canines here at Cedar Pond ALL will throw themselves into any body of water or field to retrieve a mere tennis ball for me. I love my dogs, I love retrievers!

Wheelbarrow Baas

Oh, the sound of baas in the morning as the sheep await their feeding. If only this were the only time of the day this noise erupts. No, oh no! Every time they hear a wheelbarrow, and I mean EVERY time, they begin this cacophony of baas. Often, with hay in their mouths too.

Oh, the sheep , in their sheepy brains think, " I hear the wheelbarrow! Hay!!!! Baaaa!!!" And baa they do, as you can hear for yourself. Never mind their stomachs and mouths are full, the wheelbarrow is in motion! Kind of like the response a person gets with the sound of opening a candy package in the midst of a throng of children.

Enjoy our Wheelbarrow Baas!
