May 16, 2016 – Denali, Guardian of the Flock

May 16, 2016 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

Denali:  “Yeah mama, I’ve got this guardian thing down. Chickens…check!  Keeping Diva out of the chicken poop…check!  Making sure Supra does not eat the chickens…check!  Snuggling with my boy when he gets home from school…check!  Life is good when you are a  Great Pyrenees. But I think it might be time for you to get the crops planted.  The garden boxes are looking a little empty. I am ready to guard the tomatoes too…just saying.”

January 25, 2016 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

Lately, all my senior diva does is brag about the chickens.DSC_0023-2“My girls are so lovely.”DSC_0051“They work hard all day in the garden, tilling the soil and looking adorable.”DSC_0034-2“They each lay a lovely egg every single day.  They deserve a special treat.”

Blah, blah, blah!  eye roll

DSC_0107-EditHogwash!  Where is my special treat?  I work hard all day long, keeping my boy’s pillow warm whilst he is at school?  Where is my bacon and cheese?

Guess what, dog lovers?  I am OVER it!

November 20, 2015 – What Came First, The Chicken or The Diva?

November 20, 2015 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

Tell me, my friends, what came first?  The chicken, or the lovely diva that is I, Miss Lilly?DSC_0051-EditI came into my family on January 10, 2010.  Almost 6 years of my glorious presence in this family of humans.  That is 42 dog years I will have you know!
DSC_0052-EditRosie came into this family on April 10, 2015.  Yes, that is right Rosie, you are only 7 months and 11 days old.  Barely a blip on the highway of life, yet you feel like you are the queen of MY kingdom! DSC_0006-EditYou chase me all around the yard, you poop everywhere, you have no manners, and you are rude.  Just who do you think you are Miss Prissy Feathers? DSC_0031-2You are a mean, bossy, obnoxious chicken, that is who you are.  DSC_0020-EditI will just stay here for now.  At least it is warm and quiet, and I am not being pecked and chased all over the planet.

Smiley - Angry

“Hey Rosie, guess what is for dinner this evening?  Yeah, that’s right prissy pants, we are having ROASTED CHICKEN!  Ha!”

November 7, 2015 – No, Green Tomatoes are NOT as Tasty as Bacon!

November 7, 2015 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

It has been far too long my friends.  I have missed you.  Life has been quite busy of late.  Autumn festivals, pumpkin carving, fun with little humans…AKA grandchildren, celebrating a new little human on the way, chicken funerals, and the end of the glorious Spring garden.

Yes, this diva has been busy.

DSC_0192-EditI could tell you all about it, but instead I will link you to senior diva’s blog.

Fun with the little humans. 110415

Good-Bye Thelma. 😦  Sadly, our favorite hen Thelma, passed away Halloween eve.  She will be missed.11223675_1206709549344124_6425222264325747110_oAnd that brings us to today.  Today, this happened!  It is now below freezing in the evenings here in Boise, so senior diva just had to rescue the last of the tomato harvest.  Question is, what are we to do with all of these green tomatoes?DSC_0212-EditSenior diva tried to convince me that green tomatoes taste like bacon. DSC_0199-EditSurely you jest. eye roll

September 15, 2015 – No Dinosaurs Permitted!

September 15, 2015 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

Chickens are mean! They have been terrorizing me of late, and it is really starting to get on my doggy nerves.

I was relaxing in the garden, minding my own “diva” business, when Rosie the chicken started chasing me all around the yard.  DSC_0105_20150914_5479She is vicious!  I even jumped up onto the porch swing to hide behind my senior diva, and she jumped up right after me, continuing her quite unprovoked attack on my delicate person.

Thelma, the Welsummer chicken, is usually my friend. DSC_0141_20150914_5515However, even she is starting to encroach on my territory. DSC_0166_20150914_5539When I went to sit by my boy Blake, she pecked me.  *gasp*  No one pecks the diva!   DSC_0198_20150914_5571-EditThey say chickens are direct descendants of dinosaurs.  I am beginning to think they might be right. jurassicchicken-2They can be more ferocious and rude than a velociraptor!

I am over this chicken thing!  Pfft!Smiley - Angry

I may need to secretly book them on a slow boat to Antarctica.

“Chickens?  What chickens?  No, I have not seen the chickens anywhere?”DSC_0020_20150914_5394Be careful Miss Lilly…pet2091515…they are watching you.
