what our farm animals have taught us

Since the weather has been so nice, we’ve been spending a lot more time at the farm.

We have a yellow lab named Lacey.  She stays and guards the farm when we’re not there.  But, when we are there, all she wants to do is fetch a stick.

I have never seen a dog more into fetching than her.  She would do it all day without even taking a water break if we let her.  She’s kinda crazy like that.  She’s even been taking the stick to Ollie, thinking he’ll throw it for her!

Ollie does love watching her go get and bring it back though.  He thinks it’s sooo funny and just laughs and laughs.

That’s what is cool about animals, they’re simple.  You give them water, food, and a little attention and they are happy!

No drama, no yelling, no trying to outdo each other.  If everything in our life made us as happy as Lacey is when she’s fetching her stick, we wouldn’t have any complaints!

It’s a good reminder to try and keep life simple.  Cherish the little things that happen everyday. Hope you have a great Wednesday! -amy

    When we rescued Lacey she came with the fetch obsession, she’s crazy for tennis balls too. I th ink she would have made a great search and rescue dog because of her high ball drive but I’m so glad she has brought you guys so much happiness! She’s a sweet girl. 🙂 hope all is well. ~anna
