Favourite thing Friday (on Saturday)

I got piggies today.
Pigs are my favourite animal and I have always wanted a pet one since reading Charlotte's Web as a young girl.
The big pig is Maude and she is going in our freezer.
Think chops, roasts and bacon.

But little Dudley Pigglesworth Snortimer is my not to be eaten pet.

He is just 8 weeks old and oh so cute.

Thanks Shirley and Graham for raising such cute pigs.

Death in the family

Last Sunday at midnight, Delilah the rabbit passed away.
We only had her a day and we're not to sure what happened. But I will say it wasn't nice and my husband went beyond the call of duty and gave Delilah mouth to nose to try to save her. Alas, it was not successful and Miss Boodles (6yrs) was devastated.
R.I.P Delilah.

Pesky Wabbits

Home, home on the range. Where the ducks, chickens and rabbits play.
Today we got two Giant Flemish rabbits that are free ranging it with the birds.
Introducing Mrs. Wilby (will be). Apparently, when the other owner got this rabbit they told her it *will be* about this big. Which being a Giant rabbit is quite big. So that's how she got her name.
As you can see Mrs Wilby has a bent ear. Maybe another animal tried to Tyson her. lol
This is Mrs Wilby's daughter which Miss Boodles has named Delilah.
She is so playful and one of our cats has taken to chasing after her bobbing white tail.
Welcome to the mad house.

Favourite thing Friday

Our new additions :)

Gumdrop taking a bath (in dirty water)
Wills having a gander
Harry joined in looking at the bird in the bath but quickly lost interest.
Obviously Gumdrop isn't his type.
Finally Harry and Wills left Gumdrop in peace.
4 kids, 3 chickens, 3 ducks, 4 cats, 1 dog and a husband. No wonder I have no time for crafting.
