Thursday Daily Dose Of Cute: Off Duty

Very Off Duty (taken 4/23)

© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where there's always plenty of work to be done around the farm, but nobody's expected to be on duty (or even conscious) all of the time. Except Lucky Buddy Bear of course, who lives to work. He'll occasionally shut his eyes while guarding the garden or babysitting, and he spends time hibernating in his lair under The Shack, but in 6 years nobody has ever actually seen this Australian/English Shepherd sleep.


  1. I would never get any work done if I were at your place. I would be watching these two all day long. So freaking cute !!

  2. Every time I see them I just imagine snuggling up in their soft, white fluffiness. Dirt and all!

  3. It's a good thing those are working dogs and will be living with the sheep, because grooming long-haired white dogs would be a nightmare. I think of these things now that I have to keep a rough collie even partially presentable. But your guys are rough and ready and don't need to worry about sissy things like dirty fur and burdocks.

  4. I'm excited to see just how big they are when we see another "real-time" pic. I can't imagine how busy you are right now!! I'm in love with the Daily Dose of Cute!

  5. They must have worked (or played) themselves into exhaustion!

  6. What a great photo - it should be framed!

    Your photos and articles have meant so much to me these past years. It's like being on the farm again. Thanks!



December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
