D is for Dog
We've always had dogs here on our property. I can't even imagine what my life would be like without a dog -- I rely on them for protection, for our "early warning system", and for the best companions anyone could have.

Our latest dog is Sydney, a red heeler. She'll be 2 years old in August, so she's really still a puppy, as this breed takes about that long to mature. I'll be glad when she's past some of her puppy issues like chewing up anything we happen to leave out on the porch. (argh!!!) So far, she's not to be trusted with any of the chickens, either (darn!)
