|L to R: Molly, Fred, Vinnie, Pepper|
Yesterday afternoon, our gorgeous work dog Vinnie (second from right), was killed by a snake bite while out in the lucerne crop. Vinnie was our youngest work dog, with a wonderfully sweet and loyal temperament. We are all very distressed, including Pepper (far right), his playmate. She went missing early this morning and was later found wandering the farm. We believe she was looking for Vinnie.
On days like these, farm life can seem terribly, terribly hard.
