~Our Baker Household Farm!!~

~NEW items coming to The Sleepy Poet this week!! I also have alot of new Thrifty finds and makeovers to get completed and posted, so keep your eyes peeled to my blog this week!!~
I am always posting on my junk finds...now I wanted to introduce you all to what else fills my house, yard, garage...and front porch!! All my little monkeys...
This little cutie is my Scooter, "Boo" for short, hehe, don't know where we got that one but it has stuck for years now!! Lets see he is about 10 years now and still wild as a little goose. I love love love him to pieces, hubby does too. We could not sleep at night if he was not slap dab in the middle of us taking up the entire bed....and can he ever get himself into a situation..... scroll to the next pic if you doubt me!!


I guess in the South we like our Krispy Kremes... and Boo does too. All that has to happen is for his Daddy to rattle the doughnut bag and it is on!!


Have you ever seen such?? He will lick that bag until sunrise!! I guess you can say we had a major sugar high in this little one after this episode... my gosh and he loves Cheerwine Soda!!

And next we have Gracie or what she goes best by "G", I don't know where we get all the name short cuts!! And is she ever the typical HIGH energy Boxer Sweetie Pateetie (names I just make up when talking t or about my babies). Just an absolute terror...As you can tell she has ruined her beautiful black nose from rooting around non stop!! And yes.. I have been known to take Waterproof Black Mascara to cover it back black...it lasts a day or so!! hehehe!!

Well what can I say about this one and those yellow shoes.... Her name is Bailey. "B" for short or Aunt B on the days she is moving slower, she is going on 10 years old and she still has more energy than most some days!! But on the others you will catch her asleep 3 feet underneath the birdfeeders while they are eating away. She was a rescue as well.... And of course, the garage is heated and air conditioned for both of them. If it's to hot they stay inside, to cold they stay inside. And if the water isn't with ice, they won't drink it!! ROTTEN they are!


Last but not least is Shabby Cat.. he is not very kind to the camera, so I just get the one shot of him and go with it!! He was a stray that came up sick from a fight months ago, he had a terrible infection to his ear, our neighbor who rescues cats was kind enough to take him for medical care and keep him ( I am terribly allergic) until he was able to live outside ....on my front porch again, named Shabby Cat because he was a Shabby mess when he arrived! And he does not like our girls, they have both had a swipe and a bleeding face from him!! But they will still get after him everytime!!
Thanks for stopping by to see our little babies. We do not have "real" kids but I do call this a house and yard full. For those of you that missed the Rabbit...yes we have a rabbit too, Macy Nibbles, make sure to go to my Easter post for his adorable pics! Hint hint, if I could fit a baby goat in the yard somewhere without totally freaking out my hubby my farm would be complete...and maybe a donkey!! Blessings , Janna

I am so with you on the miniature goat or donkey. I had a mini horse that I brought home in the back seat of my Chevy S-10 blazer back in the day!
Boo is cracking me up. When I first saw that face of course I had to go Awww!...then with the sack on...OMgosh I was laughing my butt off! And look at Bailey...wearing yellow boxes!
All of your babies are darling. Gracie looks like a gentle giant and I don't think I would want to do anything to make Shabby mad!!!

Your little cuties are so cute! I love animals too but only have 1 dog who I rescued from the side of the road about 10 years ago. He sleeps alot too but is the best dog we've ever had! One of my parrots is named Scooter! Yours is just too cute with that head in the bag! I bet you could make a potting table like mine with all your junk you find and your talent!

Yes, you need a goat! we live in a development 3 miles outside our little town of Sisters, Oregon. We have a homeowners association and everyone has half acre lots. We are allowed to have horses (We don't have one) but no other farm animals. Not even rabbits (Which we have 2 of, shhhh!) We want chickens so bad and may sneek in a few of those next spring!! Our two kitties run the house and Samdog Gamgee comes in and out with the weather too!
