We lost our precious boy to a tragic, freak accident yesterday.

I want to go to there...

...actually I want to "move" to there.

I have often been asked, "do you prefer the mountains or the beach?"

And while I love visiting the beach and appreciated it's vast beauty, my soul yearns for the mountains! It's where I feel alive and where I seem to become the "real" me. It's hard to explain, but it feels.....spiritual.

So, after a recent family bike trip along the Virginia Creeper Trail, I have decided the following:

I want to live here... something like this...

...and see this...

...or this, when I look out my kitchen window...

...and be able to play with Sweet Pea in one of these...

...of course, this wouldn't be too far away...

...and just a short drive down the road, you would see this...

...or this...

...and views like this...

...or this, are common place...



...will just have to come visit Mammy and Papaw....OFTEN!

Multi-purpose building... you have one of these???

It's part goat shed, chicken coop, egg laying station and now (thanks to HB) we have our very own "Spring Lake Broody Resort and Spa"!

(Please excuse us, while we are in the process of staining the exterior!)

Our first two "spa" guests!

Broody #1 sitting on 4 Welsummer eggs and 1 Black Australorp/BLRW cross egg.

Broody # 2 sitting balls! ;)

(I plan to get some day old Java chicks to put under her in about 10 days, so for now we are just going to pretend......shhhhhhhh.)

Have you read...???

...Georgia (the Coonhound) Goes to the Beach!

There was a lot of things to do and see.
I spent most of my time "people watching".

It was very hot.

And very bright.

And this thing really freaked me out, so I barked at it really loudly and everyone ran over to see what I had found. Mom, said that I was just acting silly!

We had movie nights but I was usually very tired and had a hard time staying awake.

My favorite time was when Mom took me for a walk at sunrise every morning. I met so many new friends! Most of them were allowed to run in the waves and chase the birds but Mom said that she didn't want to have to go find me and pick me up 10 miles up the beach so I had to stay on my leash.
Still it was the best time of the day!

If I was hungry, I would do my very best sphinx impression and someone would always come up and tell Mom what a good dog I was, pet me and give me a treat!

I will miss the beach!
I hope Mom brings me back some day.
