Mr. Darcy meets a friend

A couple weeks ago, some old friends unexpectedly dropped in. They brought with them their seven-month-old Husky/Golden Retriever puppy.

Oh my, Mr. Darcy was one happy canine. The animals romped for hours.

This friend's pup was absolutely fascinated by Lihn, Younger Daughter's Quaker parrot. Let's put it this way: It's a good thing Lihn was in a cage, or she would have been snack food.

Naughty puppy! Get down!

The other puppy was much leggier than Darcy, and fast as lightening. We took them out in the field and she left poor Darcy in the dust.

It didn't matter. They played and played and played.

And so, as another old friend used to say, a good time was had by all.


  1. NOBODY has more fun than puppy dogs !!! --ken

  2. I am guessing Mr Darcy 'slept like a log' that night..... Too cute.

  3. Too cute for words, puppies are such neat things.

  4. At the moment, we have 4 Maremma pups in our yard. They have become buddies with the 4 piglets that were rejected by their mom. They play together, sleep together, and roam all over. Very cute.

    As for the sow, this was the second litter she had rejected. The charm of bottle feeding piglets wears off real fast in the middle of the night, every night. As a sow that won't do half her job, when we have two others that are great moms, she went to "freezer camp". We will be grateful at every meal she feeds us.
