She's a talker, though....right now, I think it's because she misses her littermates. No barking, just soft whines. Last night she kinda freaked when we went to bed - I mean, no people! Where did they go??! So, she did bed-checks. :sob: and :lol: I don't know where she ended up - Snips took over the blanket I had put down for Bree. Eventually, she'll have a proper bed - I found a place online that sells the foam cores for pet beds - a Wolfhound-sized bed will run - at pet stores - $200 ON SALE. This place? $18.97, + $15 in shipping. Let's see....even adding in the fabric to cover it (and I have an old Merino Wool Matress pad that will be the bulk of the cover)....it doesn't come CLOSE to $200. So....yeah, I gotta find a pattern. (I think Snips'll end up with whatever bed we get anyway....but hey - might as well *try* to get Bree convinced that a dog bed is proper for Her Princessness to sleep on. :snicker:)
All 3 Nubians have been bred. Annie and Mocha are back in with the other does; Inara is still in with Calvin - I want to be sure she takes. Then I get to start the tetracycline on the Alpines......they'll be bred in December. Not sure about the Cashmeres yet....we're still discussing them.
I'm watching the dollar......when I went to Thrallmart Saturday, prices were WAY up. $300 for groceries! Yes, we were out of a lot of paper goods (which are usually pricey), but...I only got 87 items. That's.....up a lot from my normal! (And that didn't include ANY meat or dairy! Or a lot of processed foods......the only pre-made stuff I buy are pancakes, because I can't make 24 pancakes for $2.89. Not even close.....those I buy. :sigh:) Elections are coming up.....and stress levels are building. SOMETHING'S gonna give!
