30 Days of Thankfulness on a Family Farm-Day 25

Day 25-Farm Dogs

Meet BZ.  We are BZ’s second home.  His previous home had several kids.  I think his name was Cesar, but along the line somebody couldn’t say Cesar, so BZ it became.  He only answers to BZ, so don’t get formal on him and try to call him Cesar.  Big Boy will just ignore you.

BZ’s owner was concerned he wouldn’t have enough room to roam.  I sent her an photo taken from a plane.  He came to live at the farm the next day.  BZ is one BIG dude. He makes grown men think twice!

IMG_5992This is BZ’s best bud Macy (the guy running away from the camera.) Macy was rescued from an abandoned farm way back when, when he was just a pup.  He is a he with a she name.  (Sorry buddy).  Macy was 14 years old last summer and had had a few medical issues over the years.  A coupla stokes never slowed him down!  Who needs two working eyes?  Not Macy! 

Sadly, last summer his old body just quit working on him.  We were all so very sad when he passed away.  Especially BZ.

BZ tried and tried to be happy again.  Finally, he made friends with a Tom Cat.  We all know Tom Cats that live on the farm aren’t forever friends.  BZ didn’t know that, and now he’s sad again.


We need to find a friend for BZ to hang with.

I applied for a suitable pup from a rescue place the other day.  I got rejected.  I think I’m taking it hard.  I mean, what dog wouldn’t love to live here?

Apparently, it’s only a suitable home if we promise to keep him in the house and in a fenced yard.  Huh?  Makes no sense to me.  I guess a constant flow of guys here, the fact that there is NEVER NO ONE HERE, three heated buildings and the occasional visit to the house and office building just aren’t acceptable. 

I guess it is better to be in the house all day in a crate while your owner is at work.  I guess it’s better to play with toys than chase rabbits and farm cats.  Apparently a heated garage is not as good as a human’s bed (ok, I may agree there.)

So back to the drawing board. 

If you know of a hearty, but cute, midsized farm dog that would love to live on the prairie, loved by our crew of family and helpers, and who would be happy not sleeping between Farmer Justin and I every night, shoot me an email or comment.  Hoping to find one before Christmas morning!  BZ will be so happy!  Shh, don’t tell him, or the kids while you’re at it.
