Baron and Other Craziness…

So, life has been wonderful and just plain crazy busy lately. I’ve been working on a number of sewing projects in preparation for our trip to Ohio, upping my horseback riding to three days a week, and caring for our own little menagerie.

To add to the slight insanity, we are taking care of a new feathery friend for the next few months until his owner can find a new place. His name is Baron and he is a 28 year old blind goose.  So far he is fitting in very well and is very sweet.

He will be staying in the back yard during the day and sleeping in his own space, complete with straw bedding,  in the garage at night. Last night he stayed in our basement bathroom to see if he could be indoors at night. He did well, but my goodness, he is one MESSY boy! So, we both think the garage will be the perfect place for him at night.


Baron in the backyard for the first time.


Taking his bath! He looooved this so much. He spent a good 30 minutes splashing around.


Meeting the dogs. Max seems to really like him. He just laid down next to baron and sat there.

Well, I must be off to work on pattern drafting. Have a lovely day!

Love Lauren

I like your new tenant and they seem to take quite well with your dog, be patient with the demented sure to check your owner and his home. Regards

The picture of the goose in the bath is the best thing I've seen all day! Thanks for sharing!

What a lovely new addition to your Portland House household this old feathered gentleman is - although as it seems he still has to work on his manners;) Wonderful pictures - I'm sure he'll enjoy the time with you and your family!

Wow! Your feathered guest and you own furball are teaching us something. Two different species can get along. We humans can learn something from our fellow creatures.

Happy drafting.

Awww cute! I particularly love the one of him having a bath! Is that in your inside bathroom?
