Night Shift


Even Judah's beat after a night in the pasture with his new partner, Ruth.  Judah has learned to pace himself in his guarding duties, only barking when he hears or smells something amiss.  But Ms. Ruth is new to the game, and barked All. Night. Long.  Her high-pitched voice was easily distinguished from Judah's low bark.

She's paying for all that barking this morning.  I'm surprised she isn't hoarse.





But the sheep are safe, Ruth has a job, and Judah is out from under ALL the responsibility.  I'll monitor this situation and make sure it all keeps working well.  Ruth didn't seem to want to come out of the pasture this morning, so she'll stay on the payroll today.


She has found one new delicacy in the pasture not normally available in the house:  Sheep Poop.  Lovely.

  2. Thanks, Mary - she's as sweet as they come, too. And she has one of the biggest fan clubs of all our critters.

  3. Slightly less offensive than eating cat poop (commonly found in my home)!

  5. It's great that she's able to get out of the house and into the pasture now. Will she be staying out all the time?

  6. We'll just take it a day at a time, Judith. Don't want her to get into the messy shape she did last time. I think she's loving it. ;-)
