What's a Duffy?


Whats a farm without a Farm dog? What are kids, without a dog they can wrestle with? What is a man, driving a truck, without a faithful friend sitting next to him? (uh, no not me..I am getting busier by the second) Mattie, although cute and adorable, just was not fitting the bill. She is a great dog mind you, but she is too small for the girls to "play" with, and out here? We have to guard her like crazy, as the owls are four feet long..and the hawks, and the coyotes. The prior owners of this home lost two dogs to "swoop and grab".
So what is a Duffy you ask? Look closely at the photos..he is 8 weeks old, and about 30 lbs. The girls are in heaven, and just look at Larry's face!! As for me? I am running around grabbing my slippers out of his mouth, pulling cords away from him, and yes...thank-God we have to carpet shampooers. We have a crate that fits for now, but..what's a Duffy? Well, his daddy's name is Charlie, and he weighs 165, and momma's name is Madeline, and she weighs in at 125. No swoop and grab here...

Oh Lord, what have we done? How in the world, even knowing how much work this is going to be, could a mom say no..when everyone's eyes are lit up, the smiles go from ear to ear...and you know this dog would lay on your kids in the snow to keep them warm?
oh...so whats a Duffy.
My new son...
