in the house all night. Naturally after she'd been in here fifteen minutes the kids liberated her from the bathroom so she was all over the house. She came and stood by me in the kitchen while I was making pork chops. Laid under Jenny's feet at the computer, and when Fred pulled up out front she went and jumped up on the couch and watched him get out of the truck through the window. She was still there when he came in the house and let out a hearty bleat to welcome him.

"You didn't tell me your family was visiting." Fred said to me.

"You're a funny funny man." I said to him.

She stayed in our bathroom all night laying on a blanket, quiet as a lamb unless someone turned on the bathroom light. That kind of threw her and she would go to squawking. This morning I kicked her out the front door and watched a heart warming reunion. She hollered and then Baby hollered back and then they ran to each other
nuzzling each other through the fence. She missed a whole night of nursing but I think it was wise to keep her warm all night. Now we'll just have to wait and see.

Raising children, we've probaly had more tha our share of pets. The best dogs came from he pound. The best cats where the ugly ones saved from the gas chamber. Rodents came to us at the ends of scholl years. I shallalso pount out these critters were aquired when somebody taking them was payment enough. We had parrots., one of them teasing the soul out of a dog, thdog up for plucking that bird should he have gotten to low.
Then there's the farm. A winter calf born in wind blown snow, surely destined to freeze to death, saved brought into the house for a warm shower and thoroughl drying. An hour's visit or two these guys were warmly returned to their mommys.
Clink calledall the critters of the haried or feather manageries, her fuzzy sons and daughters.
While I might have resented the implications, our children took great gee in the continued family expansion.
Fuzzy Dad
