Bea and Gretel have now been with us for over a year. It has been fun to watch their transformation from little furry polar bears to big, gentle beasts. They have been wonderful dogs so far, keeping the coyotes at bay and living harmoniously with the goats. And their escaping and running about the neighborhood is becoming far less frequent.

The newest chaos in our lives came in the form of two kittens. After Rambo died, we unexpectedly found in our possession two baby animals needing a home. We initially balked at the idea of additional responsibility but their sweet affection soon won us over. They are living inside until their medical needs are situated and then will join Betty White in rodent predation around the property.

The rest of the summer promises to be busy and full of friends, family and goat milking. Our new pasteurizer and yogurt maker allow us to further enjoy and experiment with Wendy's milk. As they say, practice makes perfect!
