We have a female Great Pyrenees who will be one this June. She seems to have some sensitive skin issues so we took her to the vet and they gave her an antibiotic and antihistamine the last time she started to form scabs on her skin on her belly mostly.

The sores look similar to ringworm and…Continue

We made it thru his being a bully .....finally think he's figured out that grabbing us, is not the best way to get us to play with him.

He is getting ready to turn 8 months and we don't "allow" this behaviour, but the nightly wrestling or pushing matches are getting tiring and at times we end up…Continue
May all of you enjoy this holy week. I wish blessing for all of you and all your animals.
Merry Christmas to you all.
I thought that some pictures from you over the years would be good this year. The crucifix from Peru has a nativity scene for you to enjoy. We miss Jack Magoffin now. He is pictured here at Christmas 2008. Thanks to Marion, Ans, and Lynn for their pictures.
May the blessings of the Christ child be upon you all this next year.
