Our Deer Friend

Hello Neighbors!

How appropriate that during our Pets on Parade event that our family should find a baby deer in the backyard.  No mom in sight!  And to clarify here, this is not a pet, nor will we be trying to keep him/her.  Anyway we managed to get a few pictures, and called the local wildlife contact.  We were told, not to worry that mom left her/him there for the day and would come back at night.  Well, we enjoyed watching him/her throughout the day and first thing in the morning the children went out to check and didn't see her.  We were sure mom came back and when my daughter saw a mom with her fawn about 1/2 a block away, we were quite happy that they were back together..

But....when they went out to play volleyball this evening, who should appear in some brush near the fence?  Yep, you guessed it.  The fawn again.  Now, I don't mind fawn sitting during the day, I mean really, all we do is keep a distance and occasionally take pictures, but I do want to know that mom actually came back and fed the little thing.  Our contact said they needed to wait a couple days before they would take any action.  So, we will wait and see what happens tonight and if she/he is still there, I think we will make another phone call.  In the meantime, enjoy the pictures!  He/she is adorable!  Also, all pictures were taken at a distance with a good lens.

Watching volleyball!

I will try to update you all later  this week on our deer friend!  See you At the Fence!

Yes they are. It is the size of a decent sized small dog. We are guessing it is only a couple of days old. My male Sheltie is larger than this baby.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
