It took a month, but Buttercup finally forgave the dog bed for letting that nasty puppy sleep in it and has returned to his nest.
This is the first day I’ve been able to turn off the cat warmers after this past week of freezing temperatures.

We went way back to the woods at the back of this field, to get far enough away from the horses. Horses always act like they think someone’s out to get them and …
