“Hoping to get a head start on the next day, I eat breakfast the night before. That way I can sleep in until two in the afternoon.”
~ Jarod Kintz
It’s cold here at the farm this morning. Brrrrrrrrr!
Too frosty for paws just yet. There’s ice in my water bowl, and every breath is a fogged cloud.
We might stay abed a little longer. It’s warm in here and oh-so-snug. Perfect for a sleep-in.
It was a big day yesterday; clearing windblown timber, chainsawing wood for the fire and stacking the wood shed, and feeding out mixes of copra and minerals and molasses to all of the cows and their babies.
Also, my brother Harry and I needed baths because molasses sticks to dogs like nobody’s business. And dirt and grass and general filth sticks to the molasses.
I’m still so tired, and it’s early. The sun isn’t even properly up.
There’ll be time enough later for romps through the paddocks, and games with the new calves.
Turn the light off. Keep the curtains drawn. Let’s close our eyes and go back to sleep!

Burt is a hard working dog with many jobs under his collar . Sometimes you just have to take the weight off your paws and snooze . ..just wait till the field and paddocks have aired there”ll be no stopping him😉👍
I’m so happy to see that Bert has everything under control over there. Best nurse ever.
I’m so glad to hear from you Nurse Bert, because you popped into my mind this past Sunday while I was at church. I thought, “Oh no, I hope Bert is ok.” I kept checking your human mom’s posts to see. Glad you got to cozy up and sleep. Sweet dreams, sweet pup, and to Harry and your humans as well. Love from Tennessee.
Perfect remedy for this frosty day Nurse Bert. Enjoy!
