“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution

A New Face Sports The Orange Collar

There is a new face on the farm...
and he's traded in his fancy collar for a fluorescent orange color
to match the rest of the pack.

It's Chester, the huge-eared wonder dog.
Yes, Chester has landed here on the farm and it will be his forever home.

You might remember that Chester was Tyler and his Mommy's new puppy 
at the end of the summer.

Why is he now living on the farm?
It's hard to keep an active breed of dog in an apartment...
especially when everyone is gone all day long...
and a nasty neighbor threatened bodily harm.

And so, dear Chester, an adolescent now, will spend the rest of his days here on the farm.
I have to admit... he's struck it rich.
Farm life is a great life for dogs.

Chester has already proven himself to be farm-worthy.
He is respectful of the animals.
He follows the rest of the pack as though they have always been his very own pack...
and has designated himself to be Hubbs' shadow.

He is a smart little fellow
who will have the benefit of wise old teachers... especially Oakley!

And Annie couldn't be happier.
Finally there is someone for her to play with that has her energy level.

Chester is officially a puppy in training.
He is going to be a wonderful farm dog in no time.
