A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
Our daughter Rachel, the animal specialist, recently earned her Master’s Degree in Animal Science. We are very proud of her!
Now she just needs a job. This has been much more difficult than any one of us imagined and Rachel moved back to Miller Farm to continue her search.
Since moving out Rachel has acquired another dog – and it is not a dachshund. Meet Cooper, the Australian Shepherd.
He is used to living in a house with several other Aussies and Penelope – Rachel’s dachshund. Now dachshunds outnumber him. He tries to fit in, but it doesn’t always work.
He has finally gotten over his fear of the scary dog that lives in our oven (otherwise known as his reflection).
But he is still not sure about the chickens.
It is a little chaotic at Miller Farm right now.
It is a good distraction, though, as we had to say goodbye to Bella last week. She had kidney disease and after giving all our kids the chance to say goodbye, it was time for her to go.
Having Cooper here helps keep us from missing Bella – usually.
Such a great degree! She will get a fascinating job.
