How much is that doggie in the window?

For whatever reason, both of my boys have loved the song "How Much is that Doggie in the Window."  They liked to help make the animal noises in the song and it was fun.  Little kids making animal noises is too cute!  Solomon likes making the cow's "moooo" noise whenever he sees a cow and he likes other people to make cow noises.  Which is ironic because when Hunter was a baby, if someone (Frank!) made a cow noise - he would always cry.

Anyway, I am getting off topic here.  The point of this post is to share some pictures of Dixie's puppies and let you know that if you have been thinking about getting a puppy - we will be giving her's away for FREE!  (No coupons required!)

Awwwww ... just look at these sweet furry little pups!

Dixie  is a German Shepherd - collie mix.  We are not positive about the father, but the only dog we see running the neighborhood is a big black dog that looks like a lab - pit bull mix.  The dog has come on our property a number of times, but never bothered us.  I'm not totally positive about what kind he is. 

If you know a lot about dogs, and think you can identify what kind of puppies these are (other than the German Shepherd/collie part, I'd love to hear from you.

We are thinking we may keep 2 of the puppies.  But we need to see how they are with the chickens before we decide for sure.  So that means we'll have at least 3 puppies that need a home.

In other news, we are still waiting for our appointment with the lead detection guy.  Frank is still waiting for the kidney stone(s) to pass.  Thankfully though, the pain has not increased. 

I found some bird pictures Tabby took on my camera this morning.  This tufted titmouse made me laugh:

Just what do you think you're lookin' at!
