If you have followed along on our farm life comedy act for any length of time, you are probably already quite aware that in addition to our “flock” of children, we are also the (sometimes not so) proud parents of two of the best flower farming dogs around: Dude and Cassie Winters.
Dude joined our family at the very beginning of this flower filled path. He is a healthy mix of Australian Shepherd and Border Collie. He rounds up every bird, butterfly and bumblebee found on the 20-acre property. Since his livestock is limited, he enjoys much time with our kiddos and makes sure the borders are tight with little deer penetration. For this he earns his room and board.
Why mention them? Well, for me it’s because they are part of the tribe. Sure, they can aggravate but doesn’t every employee and family member wreck your nerves once in a while? This is a full circle farm and here we respect and recognize everyone’s contributions even if it’s “just the dogs”.
