  1. this photograph of these two is beyond wonderful. I LOVE it.

  2. Aaaaaaaaaahhhh!!! That is so precious: forehead to forehead.

  3. Enjoyed all the pictures of the wonder dog and his sheep.

  4. What a sweet picture - the one of the squash blossom butterfly is beautiful - what a rare find -

    Speaking of squash - I'll be making your pumpkin raisin muffins for church next week (we are in charge of snacks) - and a couple of other pumpkin recipes - I have about 20 1# pkgs of pumpkin left in the freezer from last year and the Shepherd/Gardner is just about ready to harvest this years crop - EEEK!

    Hope you are enjoying the fall. T.

  5. Buddy should inspire all canine and sheep to form such a bond. My Border collies love sheep but could take a few lessons from the Budster LOL.

  6. I cannot to live on a farm - just a few more years I hope! That picture makes me want it even more...

  7. That is the sweetest photo--eliciting a huge "AWWWWWW" from me and my daughter. Lucky you always have your camera with you!!

  8. My heart is so touched by the photo but also by the description of it. It makes me almost tear up! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage
