I had a post planned for this morning but I woke to the sound of rain and was so excited, my plan went out the window. We are so dry, any rain will be greatly appreciated and enjoyed. I was beginning to think I was going to experience the Dust Bowl Dad always talked about.
There is nothing like the sound of sweet, slow rain falling outside my window. I know every drop is soaking into the ground. This is music!
I am dreaming of retirement but so far, only a dream. Hubby will have no job by the end of November, the first time in his life he has had no job. I think he is planning on being my Sugar Baby while I continue to work. I am already compiling a Honey-Do list...I am on my third page, very full, tightly written pages!
You who know me well, also know I have an obsession with animals, particularly dogs and horses. I have been chewing on a plan to raise dogs...I know, I know, there are millions of strays who need a home! I am speaking of something that will bring income where it is needed.
I do love the terriers, heck, I love all breeds, but the terrier has always fascinated me. I did my research and decided Border terriers...not too common around here, a calmer terriers, little grooming, a working dog, very few health problems, good with children, da, da, da... Well, I can't even touch one for less that $1500!! and sometimes that does not come with breeding rights. I could buy three horses or cows with that kind of money!!!
I don't want to raise lap dogs, I want to raise a small working, intelligent dog that is an easy keeper, easily trained, and with a great attitude that can be a lap dog if you want it to be.
I am looking at Cairn, Scotties, Norwiches, and Borders. Wish me luck or talk me out of it...your choice.
It is still raining so nothing will dampen my spirits today. I must go wake the crew to begin their day.
