Livin' up to my name!

Zippy here! (a.k.a. Solstice's the Flying Farmer)

Now, just so you know, UN mom calls me Zippy, mostly, but today I was really living up to my name. First she took me out to feed the sheep. Now, we have done this before, but not for a while. I think she got kind of upset when I went under a wire and was feasting on something. I thought it was an eating contest. My face was real dirty. I think she said it was a "pie". She eats pie. Why shouldn't I?

Well..........Today we went to a different spot in the fields. Boy, did we fly in that little cart. I just put my nose up in the air so I could catch all the different smells that were out there. It was grand. Then we had to do some work.

UN mom filled the card and the wagon with green stuff for the sheep because she said there wasn't any in the barn. I just wandered around looking at everything. I sampled some dirt and stuff in the newly planted corn field. I am the only one allowed to walk in there because I am such a light weight. Then we got in the cart again and went back to the sheep pasture.

As you can see, I am still in my training crown. UN mom said I am giving her fits with my ear. I don't have a clue what that means. But I know that some of my teeth are already coming out, and I am getting new ones. I wonder if that makes a difference to my ear?

I guess I would do this again because it was good Cardi fun-----flying and farming.

Zippy be a good boy and put your ears up so you don't have to wear your hat. Sometimes with teeth they droop a little but those big suckers should be standing up soon.

You are a very handsome boy with or without your hat.

Have fun flying on your farm.

Poor Zippy - he has such a terrible life (grin).
Be patient on the ears - they often drop when they are teething.

What a great life Zippy has. I will be the third to say ears can go soft during teething.

When Miss Tilly was a puppy and teething, they told us to feed her cottage cheese whenever her ears drooped. Seemed to have worked.

Ah, farm life! The perfect environment for a herding breed. :) Poor Zippy, I imagine your crown is not the most comfortable thing to wear. Hopefully once your big teeth are in your ears will be right as reign!
