The Days the Ground Shook
Boom, BOoom, BOOM…the
fence pounder was impaling the earth with 6 inch square fence posts. The vibrations from the tractor and pounder alike
caused me to lose my balance, thankfully Mom had me on a leash and harness. We sat at the window and porch all day and
watched the posts go into the ground. Boom, BBOOmm, Boom.
2 two weeks later, just had just gotten to know the guys on the fence team, then fence was done. Mom and Dad and I drove
all around looking at it. We have never rode so much in the middle of the week! Whhoo HHHOoo...oh no, even
Rhi had a turn at driving us around the fence.
So, Fiona, Gus, and I have a bet going…who is the fence for? It’s not like the
play yard fence. Hummmmm. I think it’s for Fiona! House, treats and bed to myself.
Silly Fozzy, “the barn and fence are for you and Gus.” Fiona says smugly. “There are two
bedrooms and two of you. Besides, Mom makes boys sleep in one room and girls in the other.”
Fiona, “It could be all of us. Did either of you pee on the floor! You know how Dad stomps when that happens.
I wished you’d consider using a litter box like civilized pets.” Gus turned tail, rubbed against both Fiona
and Fozzy, and defiantly strolled away.
THEN IT HAPPENED! NO! Mom said we’re going to
the barn in a happy voice…almost as if it’s a treat! Fiona could not believe her ears.
stuff in the truck and hay and that’s not our cookies and WAIT!” Fiona and Fozzy looked at each other and
ran to the barn. “ I know them!” Choice and Lady Had come home to Mariah-Belle Manor.

Fiona & Fozzy Meet Choice & Lady
9:51 am edt
SO....every morning Mom would take us out and then run out to the car and leave us! In the Evenings
Dad would do the same. Where do they go? They are happy when they come home. Then we got to go to The Little
We know this place…Mom & Dad smell like this place
in the morning and evening…The Little Red Barn. Hummmm the places to roll. What’s that….It’s
As the human watching and listening the conversation when something like this….
Choice and Lady out in the field just munching away. I rolled down the window and make my standard
kissing sound that means, “ Mom’s here, I have goodies, I have love for you”
ears twitch “Don’t look it’s Mom’s truck, she’s making that bug sound, oh yeah treats.
Wait till she stops in front of the gate.” Lady slowly repositions herself for a clean run around Choice
Door bang, “GO” Lady looked up and came full speed to the
gate. Choice tring to cut her off or out run her. “NO, me first, treats.”
who are you?” Fiona barked as her head popped out of the truck window, followed by Fozzy’s nosy head.
“whoa” Choice looks at Lady “ that’s not a treat”. Approach slower.

Many folks have asked how we’re doing after the deer vs. Motorcycle
accident. Tim is continuing to heal and again strength as is the rest of the family is healing too.
blessings has been a daily activity for me in the past few months. 3 a day to remind myself that there are still good
and happy things in the world. One of the blessings that came to me over and over were all of the people that checked
in on us. It never occurred to me that listening to someone needed to “get off their chest” when a guest
checked in meant so much. It’s just me. That gift returned was humbling.
and Fozzy have been there with us through all of this time. Needing us to be there and wanted to give love…and
irritation at times.
Ok enough mush...I’ve never been mushy. Lots has been happening
here as a result Fiona, Fozzy, Gus-Gus Lady & Choice well be keeping you updated here on the blog.
