i thought i should introduce myself, this is my first day on this page and needed some input and i found this place, glad i did by the way. well i guess you could say we have a small hobby farm, we have four dogs, two cats, 15 pygmy goats and one sheep. it can get kinda crazy around here at times. i am married for three years i have a 14 year old daughter and we have a three month old daughter as well. now to the dogs who run this house......baby is taking over slowly though. lol buster is and 11 year old shih tsu who is blind in one eye and can only hear when he wants to, he sleeps most of the time but every once in awhile he is rocket man and runs all over the yard. toto is an 7 year old yorkie he is daddy's baby toto follows dad anywhere and everywhere. dad can get him to do anything. the only time i am good enough is when dad is not around. holly is a 5 year old chocolate lab, she is my baby she is daddy's girl but loves everyone. oh but don't grab a ball or say ball cause she will flip out in a second and she goes psycho, she will chase the ball till she is ready to fall over you throw it she will go get it. and then there is duke his a almost 4 year old bloodhound german shepard mix who wiehg 150 lbs. and has the awful smell of hound. peew. he looks like the dog off the beverly hillbillies hence the name when we got him his name was austin, now if you saw him you would know the name wouldn't fit him so when he came here he had a new name within an hour. see duke was coming for the weekend with my sister and he never left. my sister was moving into an apartment and duke was lab size at 8 months and knew he wouldn't be happy there so i told her bring him here and see what hubby thinks all the while knowing he would never leave i snickered. lol you see my hubby is the biggest push over when it comes to any kind of animal, if a mouse gets in the goat grain he will just take it out side and let it go. he won't even let the dogs chase bunnies. he is a big softie. we also have the cats who weren't gonna stay we were gonna keep them till we found good homes for them, well missy and roxie found a good home, ours. they are both black cats roxie is tall and sleek and missy is short and tubby. and then we have the goats and the sheep. we have 15 pygmy goats and one big sheep. they are lawnmowers but treated like babies too. hope to get to know you all.
