I am Seven!

I am 7 today! So why do I have a picture of cows on my blog on my birthday? I do like cows because they smell so nice. These are extra special cows as they are the ice cream making cows of Maple View Farms.
Barbara brought me to Maple View Farms to celebrate. We left Ambrose at home - HAHA! I got a cup of ice cream. People were surprised to see a dog on the porch eating ice cream but I didn't care. All I could think of was the ice cream.
See how nicely I ate the ice cream off the spoon.
Then she let me lick the last little bit out of the cup. Yummy!
When I was finished I saw a woman eating ice cream out of a big waffle cone. I think that next year I will hold out for a waffle cone. On the way home we stopped at Teddy's house. He is one of my Drill Team buddies. His person has goats, chickens and a miniature horse. The horse, named Daisy, was being abused so Teddy's person adopted her and treats her really well and has gotten her nice and healthy. She is wearing this harness to get used to it so that she can learn to pull a little cart.
Daisy is good with dogs so I got to get pretty close to her. She smelled wonderful.
Then I got to go in the yard with the goats. I love goats. Maggie is the white goat in the front and she is very protective of the other goats. I was pretty excited and she did not want to let me get too close to them. It was ok though because I could still smell them.
What a great birthday! Cows, ice cream, a horse and goats!! I am one happy setter.
Now I will go home and annoy Ambrose and keep him away from my toilet paper roll. What fun!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BEAUTIFUL NIAMH! It does sound like a wonderful celebration. I wish you could come and visit me so I could introduce you to my horses (they are a little bit bigger than Daisy, though...).

What flavor of ice cream did you have?

Happy Birthday my lovely friend. You know what? We are almost exactly the same age. How cool is that?

I liked that little horse learning to pull the cart. Maybe next year she will take you for a ride on your birthday.

About dog shows... one advantage to having a mastiff is that (at least around here) the mastiffs are usually in the ring early. Even with all the classes, the mastiff program is usually over in about an hour. I was actually kind of dreading having Mango win his class and having to stick around for the best in breed competition.

Dexter's breeder is usually camped out all day. The labs start as soon as the show opens and just keep going and going and going...

My guess is that Niamh's breed is later in the day since they tend to schedule dogs requiring lots of grooming later on. Means you miss out on good parking spaces and grooming table setup.

A part of me does regret not finishing Mango but I'm also glad. His seizures didn't develop until after he would have sired litters and I would hate thinking of the possibility that they are a genetic trait that might be passed along.

Thank you for coming to visit us, Niamh.

I enjoyed your visit. You were very polite to me. As a horse, I really appreciate polite dogs.

I am sorry that Maggie was not very friendly with you. We call her the queen of the pasture. We all do what she says. Even me.

Come and visit again, Niamh.

Cheers on your birthday.
Daisy the horse
