I jokingly tell them that they're digging their own graves. It started as a tiny hole and has... expanded. It's Tarin's favorite place to lay. Due to the aussie's long fur, they tend to get warm quickly. They have a dog pool but after a while, the best thing is a deep cool hole.
The baby chicks. Today they have quite a bit more fuzz. This was taken two days ago. I didn't realize how sad I would be when they left till I started talking to my mom about her barn swallows. Every year they have one or two clutches and then it's over. No more tweeting birdies. :( These guys are absolutely silent however. When mom and dad come to feed them, they just open their mouths and wait. I think it's a way to keep predators from finding them.
