Just call us the Doolittles



That's right, we have yet ANOTHER new member of the family! This is Suzy Puff. She came to us yesterday from a friend who rescued her a week ago. The poor little girl was laying out in the road with her mother who had been hit and killed by a car. So sad! But she is a sweetie and we're glad that we could adopt her. So let's see...that makes our menagerie: 6 goats, 11 chickens, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 1 rabbit (and don't forget the 5 people, of course).

We also brought home 4 goldfish from the Fall Fest last weekend but "sadly" by Tuesday they were all swimming in the big fishbowl in the sky. Ah, the circle of life as reflected in the circling water of the toilet bowl...what are you gonna do?

Paging Dr. Doolittle.....

Aww, cute pup! So sad that someone would hit and kill a dog and just leave the puppy sitting there. At least she's got a great place to call home now!

That is the saddest thing I ever heard; this cute puppy hanging onto his dead mama in the road. Glad you rescued him! David and kids want a dog so bad. I said let's get moved and have this baby and get David back from JAG school before we start thinking about that! Maybe next summer I'll be ready to take on one more thing!

Oh, she is so precious. I love puppies especially soft fluffy puppies like her!

Sadly, I think we are in a competition. Counting the chickens, you have us beat. :0)

The boys are going to be so jealous. Bliss tells me daily that they need a dog. Sometimes he just says "Mom, you should get Zade a dog. It would make him happy." It makes me feel that Zade is sad or something. They're crazy and they are going to be anxious to visit and see the puppy.

Our two dogs are enough! He is so cute! The Dolittle Farm seems to be thriving and you guys are awesome! Sara, Zade will be ok, cause they may want it but it is more for you and with the house and kids...you have plenty! We do have a family in our ward that rescued some kitten. They have two boys and a girl left. Someone just dumped them on the side of the road. They are just giving them away.
