Donkey Day - What are they looking at?

Yes, it is Donkey Day... this was one whirl wind, roller coaster week!


Well last night I went out and took some photos just before the sun set. All the Donkeys were staring at something.....
Anna Belle "Bella" was really watching... (Freddie her baby was off playing with Josie)
Diego was really keeping an eye on "it"
Darlene and Pavo were being really careful, making sure "it" didn't come their way....
and the four girls; Lola, Lina, Irene and Rosie were very curious, just what is that thing?
Well "IT" is just as curious of them.......


Libbie just loves being outside, and the donkeys really do wonder just what that little "dust ball" is exactly, it isn't a rabbit, it isn't a opossum, it isn't a dog is it? I am sure as she grows up and they get to know her (through a fence, never together) they will get use to her and she will be a part of the family. But right now she is still a bit odd to them.
Ok, now I know this photo isn't a great quality... I was zoomed across the yard on a moving object - but it was just too funny to not show... look at the concentration on her face - and oh my look at that air... she is a good 1-2 inches off the ground! LOL
Now this one is to show a size comparison... She loves to roll over and have "Daddy" rub her tummy... cracks me up! His foot is twice as big as she is! I have been kidding him - she is a real manly dog for him... Did you know he picked her out?
And the last one is just to melt your heart - are those eyes gorgeous or what? It amazes me how much she has changed in just a week! We weighed her last weekend. (on a food scale LOL) she came in at a whopping 2.1 lbs. Well this last week, she gained a huge amount! Now topping the scale at 2.3 lbs.! LOL!
Hope you enjoyed Donkey and Libbie Day - And again thank you for all the support this week. I hope to catch up on some crafting this weekend, and back to a normal schedule next week.
Have a great Saturday, get inky!

Michelle, Have you ever thought of writing childrens story books? This little story right here for Donkey Saturday with the Donkeys and Libby would be the perfect start to a series of wonderful childrens books. I'm serious. You tell this story so cute and who could not love the stories of the donkeys and Libbys adventures. Thanks for entertaining me with your babies. Have a great weekend.

Hi Michelle, the donkeys are so funny you can almost hear them saying 'what on earth is that fluff ball over there'? I think that writing a book would be wonderful, all your babies have personalities and I think it would be easy for you to come up with stories, you should think about it. Hope you are doing ok.

Thank you for donkey saturday I am sure they are completely puzzled by the little ball of fluff, she is so tiny I would be so worried I would step on her!!! Have fun with your crafting. Sue :o)

Christy said...

What kind of dog is Libbie?? She sure is a cutie!!

TA Carbone said...

Oh she is adorable. The Donkeys are probably wondering who that ball of fur is, lol. What kind of dog is she again. And how big will she get

Oh my, I didn't know that Libbie is THAT small. I knew that she is a small dog, but not like a bunny. I LOVE her more and more. And you know I'm a big fan of your donkeys :)
