Fawns come to visit
Fawns come to visit

Each spring, we anxiously await the first visitation of the new fawns. This year, it happened much later than usual. It was late in June before Mom brought her young ones out into the yard to meet us. They frolicked for a bit and then followed Mom back into the safety of the woods.

Meet Cameron

Cam's first time on a bed
Cam’s first time on a bed


This is Cam, the newest member of the family. He was born in Oregon on March 23, 2013, and came by car to Missouri during his 9th week. A great traveler, and such a handsome boy.

Life has become endlessly entertaining with a puppy about.  Such energy.

At this point, there seems to be a straight tube between where water goes in and pee comes out. In fact, he is a little “piddling machine”. So, all projects are on hold until he is house broken.

He is just so darned cute.
