A suitable chute for him was set up.
When I protested that it may not be the safest means of transportation for a dachshund puppy I was reassured. The Farmchildren had already assessed the risk of Herbie going head first down the chute and made him a "stunt helmet."
I vetoed the chute idea - fortunately Herbie was on to it anyway and had hidden under the couch....
Here is the "rocket dog" in all his glory.
On a completely different note, is anyone else over summer? I want winter already.
Thanks too for all the fabulous rose suggestions on my previous post. I will definitely do another garden update soon. Not much farm stuff to report. We are spreading lime sand on paddocks. Photos of tractors throwing sand out the back do not a good blog post make.
