Ice Ice Baby

I figured I'd post some photos of the ice storm that came through a few weeks ago. We lost power for a few days but had a generator to help keep us warm. Monday night was mainly ice and Tuesday night we had more ice and snow. Whoever owned the house before us had planted a million (ok, not really a million, but a LOT) of pine trees. The ice had caked the pine needles so much that they weighed the branches down and they began to snap off and fall all around the house. The first set of photos are from Tuesday morning.

These are the photos from Wednesday morning.

The Newest Additions... All 10 of Them!

BrownDog (Yes, we're STILL calling her that. I refuse to call her Stinky!) gave birth to 10 healthy pups last week. Not only that, but it happened outside during the ice storm! We have a dried up creek bed on the back side of the property and she found a huge hollowed out tree and made a nice little nest for herself.

I've counted 3 times and keep coming up with different numbers but it appears that we have 8 males and 2 females. 2 blacks, 3 fawns and 5 chocolates. We're trying to find happy homes for them so if you're in the area (NW TN) drop me a line! They'll be ready in about 6-8 weeks. :)
