A few nice cute small dog images I found:
Shiloh & Rusty think this Great Dane is a horse that needs hearding

His owner didn’t appreciate their play tactics much and took a swat at my Shiloh! Some nerve! They weren’t being mean, just being barking Corgis that want to play chase. The Dane thought it was fun too.
Sampson has been our buddy since 2004. In the winter of 2008, he suffered a severe perineal hernia that required a 00 surgery to repair it. At the time of the surgery, we were told that due to the severity of the hernia that it was likely to reoccur. As predicted, it has reoccurred and he desperately needs more surgery before 2012. Other than the hernia, he is a happy, healthy and active dog who should live to his mid to late teens. Therefore, I cannot in good conscience end his life prematurely. I have also contacted a Corgi rescue in hopes that he could be adopted to a family that is more financially able to care for him. However, since my husband and I can’t have children, giving him up for adoption because of health issues seems as ridiculous to us as giving up our 9 year old child for adoption because we can’t keep up with the medical expenses. We work in the service industry, living paycheck to paycheck and our credit is not good enough to get a care credit card that would allow us to make payments. To help us pay for Sampson’s surgery, we have set up a ChipIn donation site to raise funds for Sampson’s surgery. So please consider donating whatever small amount you can to help keep Sampson with the family that loves him. If you can’t make a donation, please pass this info along to friends who may be able to help. Sampson, his Corgi buddies Shiloh & Rusty and his human family thank you!

Crates of Apples
Image by Chiot’s Run
Last Monday Mr Chiots and I stopped by a local orchard to buy some apples to make applesauce & apple butter. It’s a great little orchard that is as organic as you can get and still have apples. They use the bare minimum of treatments on their trees. They also try to keep their business small and do things the way they’ve always done it. It’s such a cute little place, when you drive up you’re greeted by 5 dogs that are very happy to see you.

All the apples are stacked under a huge tree beside their house. The owner explained to us that he could buy a second cooler, but then he’d have higher electric bills and then he would have to work more. So he just stores his apples outside and sells what he can before they all go bad.
They had cats patrolling the crates the crates for mice and I’m sure the dogs kept the deer, opossums and raccoons away.
