A late post, but post-worthy

This blog post is proof that I had good intentions to blog this year. To say I was a bit distracted with life happening is an understatement. Even though it's late, it's definitely still post-worthy.
This past summer we welcomed four kittens to the ranch. Mama Galena is doing wonderful and so are her babies! (and has since been spayed! kittehs have a date scheduled in February!)

Hard to believe the same summer we lost a very loyal member of the ranch crew.

This summer Joe, our oldest Pyrenees was put down.

Joe was about 12 years old and was a great guard dog. It was clearly visible his last few days on the ranch were tough for him. He had started to howl and moan in pain all through the night. He had bad arthritis and couldn't walk on one of his legs because he was hit by a car several years back, it continued to get progressively worst. Joe lived a good life and was "working" up until the day he left the ranch.

Joe was loyal dog and lived to serve his owner and protect his sheep. He has been and will continue to be missed.
Rest in peace, ol' Joe.

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, and his leader. He will be yours,
faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
