Tuesday Dose of Cute: Bert and Daisy's Big Adventure

Very early tomorrow morning we'll be packing Great Pyrenees Daisy and Beagle Pup Bert in the pickup and heading up our finally defrosted driveway and 40 miles to the vet's office so they can both get fixed—because as adorable as I'm sure they would be, we really don't need any Great Beagles. Bert will also have the end of his injured candy cane tail carefully snipped off, so it will stop catching on things and causing him to yelp out in pain. Plus it'll make him look spiffier.

As for seating arrangements, Daisy will be riding in the dog/sheep transport cage turned experimental chicken tractor in the bed of the truck (the two hens currently residing in it will be let out loose for the day, since Bert won't be around to attack them), and Bert will be on my lap, with a barf blanket tucked safely between us. Yep, he's a little puker.

Wish us luck!

Just meeting these two cute canines? You can get to know Crazy Daisy, who came to live with us two and a half years ago here and here. Bert, who moved to the farm on December 27th, is up to all sorts of puppy stuff here.

© FarmgirlFare.com, the traveling foodie farm blog where Daisy and Bert will be spending tomorrow night at the vet, which is going to be weird. How quickly I've gotten used to having that little guy in the house! I know they're both going to be scared and confused since they've never been away from home, so I'm hoping they can stay in kennel cages that allow them to see each other. And I'm bringing one of my Bert's socks and his favorite blanket (not the barf one from the truck) to keep him company. Yes, I'm one of those kind of fretful and no doubt annoying dog owners, but I can't help it. At least I'm not asking to stay there with them—but only because I need to be back here taking care of all the other critters.


  1. Good luck to all of you. And I bet this means that they will both be spoiled rotten when they return ;)

  2. Best wishes to Bert and Daisy for their trip to the vet. I look forward to seeing them when everyone is home again.

  3. Good for you. I'm picking up Miss. Priss (female cat) today. Juicy (female beagle) goes in tomorrow. Both being spayed.

    When I bought the CARA (Community Adoption and Rescue Agency) certificates (they are for getting spay and neuter at a discount), the lady said "thank you very much for spaying and neuter).

    I told my hubby it was a good thing I didn't have a bunch of money on me, cause I stuffed every dollar I had into their donation jar.

    CARA is a no kill shelter, but it was all I could do not to walk out crying because I feel so sorry for the unwanted and hurt babies that have been left there.

  4. Good luck puppies. I'm sure it will go well.

  5. Good luck, doggies! Good move, Susan. I know this can't be easy. So far away, so emotional. Thinking of you all.

  6. Oh the long awaited vet trip. Getting everyone situated can be quite a challenge. I just picked up my latest two cats from being neutered. Doing fine, with only sligt damage to thier dignity. Not sure they thought it was a good Valentines present. Bert will feel lots better in the long run with the tail being taken care of. But the Great Beagle thing, is that such a bad idea :)
