Quiet and Uneventful

It has been a quiet week, despite my working on my day off.
On Sunday night a friend asked on her Facebook page if anyone had a heat lamp she could borrow. She had been waiting all day for the arrival of a lamb to a first time mother.  The lamb was born without a problem, But there was an unexpected arrival of a second that was breach and not breathing.  My friend was able to stabilize the lamb, but felt that the "life force" of this little one wasn't very strong. With cool temps and high winds, my friend wanted to keep this new family warm; which was why she was asking her local friends for a heat lamp to use overnight.  I just happen to have one, and since she lives nearby, I took it over to my friend. I've never seen brand-new lambs, and she let me peak in on the new family.    
By the next day, both lambs were doing equally well and were nursing.

At home, the dogs have had another pretty good week that was uneventful.  We were asked to take a new senior boy for the rescue.  But, believe it or not, I had to say no.  One reason is because Eva has just come into season, and it's probably not a good idea to bring in any new additions for a few weeks. The rescue agrees.  
Todd agrees too.  He doesn't like the idea of sharing his bone with any newcomer,
or his ball....Even if he's not playing with it...
Todd and Eva will just have to be content with one another..... At least for now.


  1. The lambs are so sweet! Nice that you had that heat lamp! Yes, probably not the best time to introduce a new boy to the group. :)

  2. For a moment, before I started to reading, I thought you'd taken in some different four-legged babies...!
    It's sad that you can't take in the new senior boy, but understandable with Eva as she is. He'll just have to wait for a few weeks before he comes to heaven on earth...
    That's it Todd, you tell 'em - it's your ball and your bone - they can get their own !

  3. Oh those lambs are ADORABLE!!!So glad they are both thriving
    Todd and Eva do look very content wiv each other

  4. The pictures of the new lambs are adorable.

    A quiet and uneventful week is usually a good thing.

  5. Glad to hear you have had a quiet week. Todd and Eva make a cute couple.

  6. looking into those wee faces that always seem to be smiling... it's incredible to me that people can so casually actually EAT a little lamb. I just don't get it.
    it's a BABY!
    i'm so glad you had a heat lamp. it might have been the difference in life and death for that little one.
    looking forward to the new guy when he gets to come home! so glad eva is in a safe place for the rest of her life. XO♥

  7. Nothing wrong with quiet and uneventful! Love the lambs. Glad they're both healthy.

  8. Nice to have a quiet week once in a while!

  9. I'm glad that you had a quiet week. Your pups can chill out... Something tells me that there's a chance that senior boy will see the inside of your house someday. Hugs to you!

  10. Great that you had an uneventful week at home. you do seem like you can use some down time.

  13. Quiet and uneventful. That can be a real treat. Love all the photographs, but the last one of the lamb is the best picture of a lamb I have seen in quite a while. So glad mom and babies are doing well. And that you got to see them.
