Black, White, and Every Color in Between

Meet Pickles.
She's the newest (permanent) addition to our farm.
My husband decided it's not a real farm until you have a goat.
So a friend gave us a goat.  Thanks.  I guess.
10 hours later, I was Googling "backyard goat care."  Oh the things I thought I'd never Google.  She's very gentle and easy going.  Good thing, because those horns kinda scared me.
Meet our other new  (temporary) additions.  We are fostering 5 puppies for a few weeks until the agency we work with finds forever homes for them.  We named the large black and white pup Chic-fil-a because he reminds us of the cows.  The little ball of energy bounding in front is Nugget.  


He's somebody's favorite...

Two black and whites (but no way they're the same age), two blacks, and one brown.  5 pups from 3 different litters.  
They keep us laughing and busy.
And melt our hearts.

 My animal-lover girl is in 7th heaven.  Poor thing is allergic to them, so she has to take Benadryl after play snuggle time.


 Doncha just love his little curly tail?



 ********************************************************************
 In totally unrelated news, except for the color theme, this is what my girls did for me last night:
Do you ever take a deep sigh on Saturday night and wonder what you are going to wear to church the next morning?  I don't like making early morning decisions.  My girls asked if they could create some outfits for me and I could choose which one to wear.  So while I took a bubble bath, they played fashion plates with my wardrobe.  I was so impressed with their choices, accessories and all!

I knew they couldn't all be from the same litter!
I need the girls to come select some fashions for me...oh wait, there has to be something fashionable in the closet to begin with, right? Kind of striking out there.
