    Josie Much Improved
    In answer to inquiries, Josie, the little 13-year-old “puppy,” is much improved. Last week she had begun trembling and was not eating, with nausea and diarrhea. We took her to see Dr. B and his staff, where she received immediate attention (really more than she really wanted, as the exam was rather personal).

    LongHorn Cows Enjoining “Snacks”
    Bill recently mowed our back and front yard, which was formerly the LongHorns’ pasture. When he finished, he used the pitchfork and put some of it over the fence for them.
    Now, they line up along the fence, waiting for him to fork over some more to them. If he doesn’t get to it quickly enough, they begin mooing at him.
    They have plenty to eat on their side of the fence, but they probably feel like that was their pasture, so they should get the cuttings off of it.
