While things are always busy on our homestead the last couple of months have been even more so.  We were blessed yet again with a new Grand baby but this one is our first from our daughter Amanda and son-in-law J.T.  We were very excited to welcome little John Thomas Leverett the 5th to the family.

It's not all about work sometimes a dog has gotta just cut loose....

It is getting really hot here in Texas so Mom lets me spend the days stretched out on the ceramic tile floors in the heat of the afternoon up until it is time for me to go back on guard duty.

It was a great Dog's day on the Backyard Homestead today....


So many people have dreams of having thier own homestead and all the animals that go along with it.  They dream of waking up on land that is their own, looking out to see chickens pecking around and goats playing in a field.  It is a beautiful dream and when it all comes together it can be a beautiful reality.

From the first day that Burr came into our lives we knew that he was a special puppy.  We weren't sure the day we rescued him, from that trailer in the middle of that hot Texas pasture, how but we new he would.
