North Devon Show 2019

7th August

A good day was had by all... Wendigo was a superstar... only broken in two weeks before and was a perfect little angel - even though she'd never seen anything like this before!

Adam and Eddie came second in the dog agility

and I won 'best in section' for my Pirates Of The Caribbean exhibit.
Theme was 'an exhibit illustrating a film title'

Going Batty

Early July 2019

Image may contain: one or more people

we discovered a baby bat in our living room. Then we found several more. Turned out, because of the heat there had been a lot of pushing and shoving up in the Bat Nursery under the roof eaves and the little ones had fallen down the chimney.

No photo description available.

Result - get out the ladder and put them back in the bat roost.

No photo description available.

Mission was accomplished. We only lost one little one which didn't make it.

Apparently, the mother bats spend several days trying to find their babies, so hopefuly they were all reunited.

These little chaps and chapesses were about the size of a 2p piece - the smallest was the size of my thumbnail.

“Chicks and ducklings hatch, and now my watch begins. 
It shall not end until they go outside.
I shall take no treats, hold no toys.
I shall live and woof at my post. I am the howl in the darkness. 
I am the watcher of the poultry. 
I am the shield that guards the realms of the brooder.
I pledge my life and honor to the Poultry, for this night and all the nights to come."
