Digger finally get her bed back. She is enjoying a good nap without being disturbed by the little sister Elsie and little brother Dempsy and then mom sticks a camera in my face. Really? ....  Digger goes back to her snooze.

But that doesn't last long. Dempsy hears Digger enjoying a snack and comes to steal it away from her. Which he does, but mom catches him and returns the snack back to Digger. :)

Glad Digger found you Lori. For that matter I am glad for all the lost little souls that find a way to your farm , to be taken in and nurtured. You are a good lady. :)

Wert came in the entry this morning.  I was making eggs for Jim and did not see him sneak into the kitchen.  When I turned around he was sitting by Jim's elbow.  I told him he needed to get out of the kitchen and back to the entry.  While escorting him back, I looked at Digger's face.  Digger had a very disgusted & defeated look. :mad:  Like he was saying, "I have been here 7 years and I never got in the kitchen!  And now you let this stray roam the house?  Elsie steals my bed, Dempsy steals my snacks and now Wert is worming his way into the house. I have no respect at all!"  I went over and gave him a scratch.  "Ya, like that little scratch is supposed to sooth my soul." 

 

Poor old Dig.   :confused:

What a sweet post about a sweet dog. Thank you for letting us know how Digger came to be on the farm and how he's adjusted to the menagerie. No wonder all sorts of critters find their way to you - rescues and strays hit the jackpot when they arrive thanks to your kind soul.

Haha.  I have to laugh.  You guys paint me like some kind of saint, but I am not.  It's just a way of life for me.  I have been an animal lover my whole life, just like many of you.  From day one.  My mother started this by naming me after St. Francis of Assisi (Patron Saint of Animals) and believe me, she bit off more than she could chew by putting up with all the animals I drug around through out my childhood, adolescents & adulthood. :)   St. Francis and I share the same birthday and the same deep love for animals.  Thanks mom for planting the seed of passion.

I love hearing about your farm and your pets. Demps is stealing treats from Digger, something Demps seems to do all the time. I remember Buffy stealing treats from Ziggy. Elsie likes to steal the bed, something Elsie seems to do all the time. Digger is so gentle and has a kind hearted soul. You really do have a soft spot in your heart for animals. I enjoy hearing about your adventures with the pets and seeing from afar the love you have for them.

You Did Me Kindness

(author unknown)

 

When my legs grew to weak to carry me

And my tired eyes could no longer see,

When it pained me to struggle for each new breath,

When my heart grew weaker,

And I drew closer to death,

You did me the kindness of letting me go.

You didn't make me hang on when I was suffering so.

 

I promise I don't think you loved me any less,

And I love you all the more for you selflessness.

You freed my spirit from its body so wracked with pain,

And let me run the fields in Heaven,

Where I am sure we will meet again.

 

RIP Dig

Oh, she's not with you anymore, so sorry to hear that.  She was such a gentle soul, I have a strong love for Labs and Golden's, they are so warm hearted and tender.  I loved the story of how you rescued Dig and gave her a wonderful home.  God bless.

I took her in this morning.  There is no pain like it and I think a lot of it comes from you making the decision.  You always have a guilt.  I found comfort in this little saying above.
