Hangin' with the Kids

First, I have to say that I have awesome blogger peeps. So many of you offered to help with gettin' Diesel to Texas. Thank you! It's amazing how a lil ol blog brings so many people together. It appears that I found Diesel a ride with a fellow stock contractor from the East Coast. He just so happens to be traveling to Texas this week and offered to help. Fingers crossed, Diesel should be here at the end of the week!! I'm sooooo excited! I told the husband that I wanted to fast forward the week. He just laughed at me.

So I sat the other kiddos down and shared the news that they were gettin' a baby brother. There were mixed reactions. Pepper could care less. Harley said just keep "it" away from him. And Zena was so happy that she's gettin' a playmate.

Then we took the kids out to the tank. They love to swim especially Zena. She's my water dog.



Harley decided he would stay on shore today. Just got his tootsies wet.


They ran out into the pasture to play.


Then the husband picked up a stalk and Pepper, in typical JRT fashion, thought she HAD to have it and KILL it.


Which she did.


We had a good time with the kiddos.


Maybe next time I do a pic like this, there will be an additional lil boy!

I'm so glad that you found a ride for your new baby. Can't wait to see photos!

PS - I got a new reader at Neas Nuttiness. She saw my comment on your post (about trying to find a way to get your boy to Texas), and she came by "my place". It seems we don't live far from one another. Oh how I do love bloggers!

I am with everyone else, it is great that you were able to find someone to bring your new baby to you! Can't wait to see the pictures! I love the different variety of dogs you have! My husband keeps telling me he now wants a lap dog! Also, a house cat (I don't know if THAT will happen, I like them outside but not in!)

It'll be interesting to see what your "kids" think of Deisel-love the name- when he gets home! And it'll be fun to watch him grow up.And up. And up. (heeheehee!)

Yay about the good news... and man... I had to laugh about you wanting to "fast-forward" the week!!! You sound just like a little girl waiting on Santa Claus!

Ah...I can't wait to meet Diesel either, so you make sure to share the pics as soon as he comes "home", okay?

{{{happy puppy hugs}}}

How lucky were you to find someone that would bring him straight through for you. Know you know far reaching your blog is and what great people there are out there to help 'git 'er done'. We will all look forward to meeting Diesel.
