© 2009, the tri-colored foodie farm blog where she may not have much left in the way of teeth after all these years of happily gnawing on bones, but Robin still enjoyed her annual deer leg as much as ever last week (and we enjoyed some fabulous venison tenderloin for dinner last night!).


  1. What a cutie she is! That smile! When my kids were younger, we had a beagle who lived to a very ripe old age. These dogs are the happiest breed. Give Robin a big hug for me! She really made me smile.

  2. Awww, best wishes to your sweet girl. My dog just turned 13 on saturday too! He's kind of a grumpy old man, but we got a few smiles out of him too with some homemade treats and a slow walk in the woods :)

  3. Oh Robin is so adorable! Dogs rule, don't they? My dog just turned 13 recently (hard to believe!) and seems to be doing great! He's my baby, so I know how much you love Robin.

    Give him a hug from us!

  4. There is nothing so joyful as a dog with a deer leg.

  5. Such a cute beagle! I'm sure she gives you unconditional love.

  6. How sweet..I was just thinking of all the love this sweet animal must have brought into your life over the years! Come see my post about my animals! :D

  7. A friend just introduced me to your site--- it is perfect for me! I work on a sheep farm caring for 450+ sheep in the Winter, grow and sell organic vegetables in the Summer, have a thing for donkeys and have always had and loved beagles! I have two now---one is a lot like Bert {Plato} and the one who died a year ago {Pistol} was a lot like Robin. I love reading about your animals and life with them and I only found you about a week ago! Looking forward to going through the archives.


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!
