Meet Violet, an example of what happens when you have a stray female dog show up a few weeks before your dog is scheduled to be neutered. She is well loved, and is now running around the house with the kids. We may try to have a house dog again. May. Her mom isn't really much of a mom, so we've been feeding her and doing her care. We actually had to drill a hole in the bottom of the sheep barn to rescue her, after her mom buried her under there. There were others in the litter, but they were gone by the time we found them. She is awfully sweet.
