Chuck It

Pretty girl Blondie

  I know what you're thinking. Mother Hen is writing a post about DE-cluttering, purging, donating,  and in general, getting her "organizational act" together for the coming new year. Well, I CAN tell you that the girls and I heard some whispers about a new food pantry for the kitchen created from a Pottery Barn T.V. armoir and that she IS going to blog about it VERY SOON of-course, but not today!
 NOPE! 
 Max was after her to play a new game. She told us all about it when she came out to visit this morning and do chores. Oh, here she comes now...


Today was clear and sunny but very cold so I headed out to the Little Red Hen House right after my cup of morning Joe to check on the Cottage Hens and say hello...

Pretty girl Liza
The girls seem to be " feathering " the winter quite well. I can't believe we are still getting one or two eggs a day this late into winter. A sure sign of more to come! 

 Pretty girl Lacy Lou nice an toasty inside the Hen House
 I found the water was frozen, one egg in a nesting box and there was still a bit of food in the feeder so I got to work getting the girls all settled in for a nice winters day when suddenly I heard some loud barking and low growling...


 Really Max? How am I ever supposed to get to my pantry project let alone blogging about it if I'm out here three times a day playing CHUCK IT with you? Don't give me those puppy dog eyes! Oh alright! Let's play!
 

 

GOOD CATCH!




WAIT FOR IT !



                                                                      LAST ONE!



All done! Now I can get back to work...

Have I told you how much I love my MAX ? TO THE MOON AND BACK!

He's a Welsh Pembroke Corgi from the herding group and just a wonderful family dog!

PS. we got Max his Chuck It toy at the local Tractor Supply... Where else?

Adorable!
Love the pictures of the coop Always!
Not much of a dog person...I sometimes wish I were. Our dogs just co-exist with us. They get feedings and all...but we don't play with them.
They have each other! The play together all day. (smile)
as for that PANTRY? Oh I can't wait to see it. I'm looking for something to repurpose for a pantry too.
I looked last week but didn't find anything yet!

I'll be watching!

Zuzana said...

I love all your hens.;) I would no mind getting two eggs a day, I love eggs and I bet those fresh ones taste delicious, nothing like the ones we buy in grocery stores.
The last image is simply adorable.;)

What a fun post! Your chickie girls sure are beautiful and Max is a cutie! I can't wait to see the new pantry!

Brenda said...

Oh our Bug is always wanting us to chuck something for her to chase. She has her own basket now in the living room where I throw all her chuck it toys. Little tennis balls, squeaky things with tails and sometimes a grands toy even ends up in there. When the grands come over they pull them all out and chuck them all over the house and I get up at night or on my way to bed and step on about a dozen things that go squeak in the night.

Deb,
Max is too cute flying around after his "chuck it" toy. Lovely name. I know what you mean about how much you love your furbaby, I love mine too. I don't think I'd have faired too well when my son got married last fall if it weren't for my furbabies. They make sure this Mama doesn't experience that "empty nest" feeling. Have a great day.

Deborah Jean at Dandelion House said...

Furbabies rule! We got MAX when our oldest turned 13.. the perfect " filler " for the teen years!
Thanks for checking in today everyone!
Hugs,
Deb

What a great post. I so love that Lacy Lou's feathers! Max is adorable. He is very much like my Ella. It is hard to get anything done when they look at you with those eyes. I love the photos of him. What an agile dog.

Deborah Jean at Dandelion House said...

Hi Birds and Bees!
Yes, they can be so persuasive can't they? Thanks for your note! When are you going to get some chickens on your mountain retreat? :)

ann said...

The hens look so content. We have 10. Had 12 but two have died, on just the other day. Max is a cutie.

Michelle said...

Your Max is so pretty. My dogs always want my attention or have me play with them too.
