Finally since trying from yesterday evening, I have got this video to load up and its the unedited version I'm afraid, you will hear my daughter's dulcet tones as she calls for someone to wipe her bottom and you will hear her telling me what she has just done, after she managed to wipe her own bottom. You will also hear me chuckle at my own remarks, showing little things please little minds, just has little pants fit small behinds. Look out for the milk mustaches on the pups and you will also in the back ground hear the first half of England playing rugby against Wales yesterday.
I'm going to have to be very careful now about what I say about the rugby. Lol. I did not get to see the second half though due to milking. I got milking yesterday to find the cows yarded up and the machine ready to go and thought there had been a mix up about a couple evenings I have changed around due to children's birthdays, but it was because it was half time for the rugby and they wanted to get the yard scrapped and back into watch the second half. I did jokingly say, "You go and watch your rugby whilst you leave poor old little me to milk the cows." Which did make them laugh and later they returned to give me the news that England had won and I can't believe its been eleven years since they won a triple crown.
The weather was glorious over the weekend and seems set for a few days like this and last evening when milking saw me removing my fleece hat whilst milking and getting down to just a t-shirt and jeans under my milking waterproofs, so I guess Spring is here. Its been so wet its just lovely to see the sun and for it to be dry but some might site, " t'is not good for March to come in like a lamb, as you risk it going out like a lion." I'm just glad to have less washing, as the dogs when its wet like it has been, it has been a labour of love cleaning up after them and that's easy to find, just follow the wet muddy dog prints.
The pups are now two weeks old and we will now start them on our worming programme which is every 2 weeks until they leave us with Panacur Liquid for the first, as they can't spit it out at 2 weeks old, but by 4 weeks old because they then get good at expelling liquid wormer from their mouths, we then use Panacur Paste as they can't spit that out very easily.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
