She Empties a Tavern……

014

Hiya Blogland!! Has everyone had a wonderful weekend?? I’ve been spending my four-day weekend puttering around the house re-organizing The Craft Palace and purging some of my stash. I know a few folk who’d love some new-to-them craft supplies.  Other than a quick trip to the Post Office and visiting the in-laws farm I’ve been no-where at all-and this is the first I’ve been on the computer since Thursday evening! It has been quite liberating!!

Thursday we took the Diva-ette Gracie to visit my in-laws farm(pic at top of page). She enjoyed meeting Lauren’s parents and brother (she is quite the social butterfly). Since it would be dirty she’s wearing a red & white star bandana I made her. She enjoyed all of the sights and smells!! Here are some pictures:

My in-laws raise organic  black angus beef. They live near-by and rent the farm-house out. Lauren's dad was born here. The farm is not far from the Appalachian Trail and Camp David.

Gracie and I have been taking a walk about town around dusk every evening. It’s been too hot and humid to go any earlier!! We’ve been meeting all of the doggies in town. She’s made friends with another Chihuahua named Tinkerbelle-we have to stop and play if Tinkerbelle is out! She’s also accumulating quite the boy doggie fan-club!! We visit with Toby the Rat-terrier, Harley the Pom, Jasper the Min-pin and several other dogs.  We’ve visited with Yorkies, Pugs, Chows, Dalmations, and various mutts. The town has these paved alleys that are nice to walk and border people’s back yards. We also visit with two adorable friendly barn kittens  who’ll come out and play when we call them.

Saturday Nite I put her patriotic outfit on (she has made a sensation around town wearing it!) for our walk. We were passing the local dive tavern and were stopped by this couple standing outside who exclaimed over how cute she is. I held her to be petted and the next thing we know half of the bar had emptied out on the sidewalk to admire her. It was a great opportunity to give a shout-out to pet rescues and adoption!!!  She is definitely on her way to being a full-fledged Diva! She loves wearing clothes!

Since I haven’t worn anything the last few days fit for the internet (seriously) I’m posting a picture of Miss Gracie-rose modeling a sunny yellow sundress by SimplyDog!!

She's posing for the camera!!

    Gracie is quite the Diva-in-Training. It’s like she was born for the role. She already knows what she wants to be when she grows up! Glad to hear your in-laws are on the organic bandwagon.

    • Not that i’m much of a meat-eater–but the beef is fantastic. It’s all pasture fed and the hay they get in winter is off the farm, too!! Tamera

  6. What a gorgeous farm! I swear I’m a country girl deep inside. My friend grew up raising Black Angus cows I think that is so cool! Gracie is just a sweet lil girl and I love that she just loves playing dress up! Glad you had a nice chill 4th:) Peetee send his love to the gang!

  7. Yes … that’s what I like to see! She looks like she’s getting ready to dive into the cow patty for a good roll. Great photos of the very tidy farm. Lovely pictures all around, but miss your face!

    • I think she was a bit intimidated by the HUGe size of it–she’s more used to tiny cat turds!

    That farm is beautiful.

    Love seeing the Diva-ette out and about, and seeing her loving her outfits. Amen to the rescue places that find homes for our furry friends.

    • I advocate for rescues and Petfinders all the time when people ask about her on our walks!

    How lovely to have a family farm to visit. And I am delighted to hear that Gracie is a sociable sort of gal, who likes to make friends, and is developing her fan club! She’s such a cutie! xxx

    O, a break form the internet is quite lovely at times, and also necessary!
    I love those farm buildings, they’re quite unique!

    err call me weird but I do have a thing for American farm buildings! especially those red barns. Such a weirdo. The farm looks idyllic. We’ve been walking our dogs at dusk too. Gracie is just such a little darling, I bet everyone’s been cooing over her non stop!

    • she’s becoming quite the little celebrity around town!!
