Harvest Thyme Homestead has grown out of a love for the simpler times of life. Its roots begin in a belief in one's self and that in time, the harvest of one's hard work will create a place called home.....with a few sheep, goats, chickens, cats, dogs, 2 miniature horses, & 3 alpacas added in for good company & fiber.

Suburban Dog Goes Country
My sister Jen stopped over today and brought her youngest 4 legged child along with her.
Leroy, aka "Bad Leroy Brown", is a brown Newfoundland and is just around 13 mos old and is weighing in around 130#. He is a big goof with lots of energy, probably because he ate a battery last month.
Leroy lives in the suburbs and has a little fenced in back yard so this was a lot of space and lots of smells for him to take in........he was very busy.
Of course, he had to meet the sheep first...............
.............then Mooshie, the LaMancha and Speedy, my miniature horse.
Then it was time for a water break. He wasn't quite sure on why the water was in a bucket as it was not like his suburban water bowl but once he realized he could dunk his whole face in the bucket, he was good to go.........typical Newfie humor:)
Next was meeting Johnny, the POA........he realized quickly that this "thing" was a lot larger than him, so interest was cut short but he did try to grab some of those "treats" through the fence. I was encouraging him to kiss his mommy at that point. Jen found little humor in my humor.
So all in all Leroy was a really good boy today. Little different take on the suburban lifestyle and being groomed for the show ring, but I think he could get use to country life.
Yep, a girl and her dog in the country........doesn't get any better than that.
