So Minnie came to live with us. Little and cute, another live wire with so much personality! I put this photo of the pair of them in the Theodore Show photography section (and it won first prize in the Animals class!! See - even the judge couldn't resist them!) Which explains the next photo...I'm one of the photo stewards, and every year after the show, I get a burst of extra interest in snapping a great shot. It remains to be seen whether I succeed in that, but the Guinea Fowl were rattling around outside this morning, and I thought I might get an interesting pic...they have striking feather patterns - such a terrible pity their heads are as ugly as sin!!!
We have a half dozen of these strange looking critters floating about the place - they are curious little girls (we think maybe the rooster met his end at the jaws of a fox - he just vanished...or maybe the girls got tired of him showing off and pecked him to death!) They (like so many of our dogs) serve no particularly useful purpose - except to amuse us with their funny little run and their passionate dislike of Garfield the cat!
