Meet Buck, the newest addition to our homestead!
This Fourth of July weekend our homestead had even more reason to celebrate: We welcomed Buck, a wee German Shepherd/Lab cross pup. Instead of family BBQ's or fireworks displays, we hunkered down on our growing farm and simply enjoyed this bundle of lovable energy.
After a few nights of adjusting to a wee baby again, I am feeling somewhat normal.
EVERYONE has been asking me what the girls think of him. The short answer to everyone's question is this: So far so good.
I have let him safely visit their enclosure to allow the girls to get over their initial shock. After all, they've ruled the homestead for an entire year.
The first time I let the girls out while he was outside, I let him watch from the porch.
Then I let him go say hello with me.
He didn't chase which surprised me, but the girls kept a safe enough distance none the less.
They have all been out at the same time (with our supervision). We will continue to monitor everything. I will not leave them unattended. They all deserve our watchful eyes.
So like I said, so far so good. We are thrilled with our new addition Buck, my lil firecracker! Our Fourth of July surprise.
