This Week on the Farm 12/13
Great news! Our dog, Wash does not have pemphigus like we initially thought. Instead he was diagnosed with canine eosinophilic furunculosis of the face. In other words, it is an acute hypersensitive reaction to an insect sting or spider bite. All of the blisters and pus are gone and the lesions scabbed over pretty quickly after the steroids kicked in. The scabs are actually all gone now and he has bare patches where the fur came off. Tyler things he looks like a photo negative of Spock (think the eyebrows). His activity level is finally back to normal and he is jumping and running like he doesn’t have a care in the world.
In other news, Tyler got his chainsaw fixed. He replaced two parts-one that broke in the field and one that he broke while trying to take the chainsaw apart to fix it- and now it works perfectly. Awesome news since we still have some fence line clearing to do later this winter/spring.
For those of you who work at J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. we will be having a pick-up at the Breezewood location next year. We got the go ahead late last week and are super pumped to be able to have a pick-up there again. Everyone there was always happy and fun to talk to and we really enjoyed the location.
Not much else has been going on at the farm. Don is busy cutting firewood and doing maintenance on the tractors. Tyler is doing a little part time work at the local grocers for a couple of weeks before Christmas and I have been price checking all of the supplies that we need to order come January. Everyone here is hoping it will snow soon. We all want a white Christmas!
