It was a quiet weekend with the clouds and the rain keeping us close to home, spending treasured time with the family.
In contrast Monday arrived, along with a friends' puppy which we are babysitting for a few days. From the minute the puppy arrived it has been very busy. 'Sunshine' our labrador taught the puppy to swim in the pond within minutes of arriving. Fortunately I saw the golden haired pup scrambling among the goldfish and pulled her dripping to safety! (The pond is now safely covered!) Not long after, I discovered our wayward bunny had escaped, and this time from our yard. In between making sure puppy was going to the toilet outside, I hear a knock at the door and let in a very kind lady with a miserable looking rabbit tucked under her arm! Flopsy was up the street, if rabbits could only talk . . . We bundle Flopsy into a towel and pop her safely in the chook house. I can't believe I didn't think of putting her in with the chook before now. The chook and rabbit are so happy together they are even sharing apple cores (this makes me laugh!). And the chook house (made by my clever dad) is light, warm and has room to jump around! Perfect.
Sunshine and the puppy have been capering around in our muddy back yard most of the day - and dancing in the rain. I had to give Puppy a bath and make her warm and dry again this afternoon. As a result of all of this, I have not been doing much work but there has been much wagging of tails!
