BUSTED!! Goats on the Lamb Captured on Route 128

Two of my goats left our pasture on Friday, December 11th. After heading down our driveway, and crossing Huntley Rd, they traveled across the Brown's River and up onto Route 128. After hanging out for a while with some horses, they decided to travel North to Fairfax. Since neither of them ever passed their drivers license, they failed to realize they did not have the right of way on Route 128.
So, after traveling a distance down the center of the road, some concerned citizens stopped their cars and pulled them over off the road. Bill Stygles , the animal control officer in Fairfax, took control of them and kept them safe until I finally got word of their situation on Sunday.
I would like to give my personal thanks to the following people,
  • Everyone who read and passed along my post on Front Porch Forum (cdzgang )
  • Henry Raymond, who maintains a wonderful website which contained a blog about my wandering girls.
  • Bill Stygles , who drove all the way from Fletcher to take care of my girls which he did out of his own personal time!!!!Thanks again Bill.
  • To the user name "catvet" who were in one of the vehicles which stopped on route 128 to get my goats off the road.
  • To all those concerned citizens who took the time to pull over and help keep my girls safe.

Thanks again one and all!

Where has the time gone???

OMG! Where HAS the time gone? It's already Dec. 7th and I've been quite lax on my blogging duties!
I would just like to give everyone an update on Lucky's status. You remember Lucky, the unlucky little doggie who gave me a real nice bite on my hand this past summer? He is enjoying his first X-mas in his new home. They state he has become quite the clown, and I am so happy for him!
The young Lab/Terrier mix, named Tipper, is officially our #6 doggie. He is a real lover, but still chases my geese. I did pick up a stray cat awhile ago who has not been able to find a new home. We never did give him a proper name, calling him only "No-Name". I'm hoping someone decides to give this guy a chance, otherwise he'll be our kitty #2.
I hope everyone enjoys the coming holiday season.
