A Perfect Newfie Day!

For the next 3 days, we are at our farm. This is pretty much how our weeks go for now. 3 or 4 days a week are spent in the country tending to farm chores and the rest in what I call the "Flat lands"... in town, living in our Condo. This is pretty much how we have spent the past 6 years. As luck would have it, though, we will soon be selling the Condo in the flat lands and heading for the country full time. Of course there is a bit of a construction issue that has to be finished before we can make that move. So for now....we commute back and forth.

It's funny, but the dogs always seem to intuit when we are going to head for one place or the other. This morning they awoke with enthusiasm...sure that we were going to head off on a fun adventure. Their excitement peaked as they watched me pack food and clothes into the car and load them up.

Upon arriving at the farm, the girls and I set off to survey the animals and check out the gardens. We carried a market basket with the intention of picking apples...enough to bake a pie. Maddie, our newfie, loves these walks and today was no exception. On the way back to the house we stopped in the orchard. After picking enough apples for a pie, I decided to grab one for a quick snack. Do you know how hard it is to ignore a hungry newfie? Impossible, so I knelt down and shared my apple with Maddie.....Mmmmm good to the last bite!

Hi Beverly, I just stopped by for Pink Saturday and scrolled your blog a little and found Maddie. She is a beautiful girl! I sure am familiar with that drool, I have a Newf too! I think Molly would just love Maddie! Molly is a Landseerer.
Blessings, Shirl
