200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!
Eastern newt it is. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_NewtThey can live 12-15 years in the wild - wow!!Hey - you are a posting mad woman! I'm enjoying reading them. My heart almost broke when I read you post about winter, though. My doggie day care is $18, and I take Sal once a week.
The cool thing is that I'll never have another winter as hard as that one. Maggie isn't going to un-potty train herself and I know how to use the stove now. AND, I learned that I'm stronger than I thought. I should just suck it up and take Maggie - she needs it. It's $30 here, and I hesitate to leave Desmond alone all day. A neighbor down the street brings his dog up a couple times a week, but it's a tough walk from his place 1/2 mile away and 200 feet down.
