Turbo and Mack after spending the morning outside working on chores.
Introducing the newest member of the farm! This little 3 month old boy sheltie joined us this evening. Names are currently being tested. In contention are Waldo (because I expect to say Where’s Waldo a lot), Turbo, Geyser, and Rocket. The plan is to train him for agility amd 4H showing.
Mack is very happy to have another dog around.
It has been quite a while since we updated about Mack. He had adjusted well to the new farm. We bought a remote training collar which has been effective at teaching him to stay with us outside. He no longer chases the chickens. And Alex has become quite fond of him. In fact, Alex wants to join the 4H group for dog training.
In the last 13 years, we have always had at least one dog. Anna and I had previously discussed our options for what breed we would get next. So, with the passing of Baron, our search began.
Last night we brought Mack home to join the family. Mack is a 1 year old, Golden Retriever. The family that owned him didn’t have enough time to match his activity needs.
Mack is already house trained, neutered, crate trained, knows some basic commands, and kid friendly. He is also a huge fan of fetching, which the kids love.
Welcome to the farm Mack!
