A long day! The pugs had to remain at home today while I went to work. I traveled to Killington, Vt. to visit with Craig Mosher of Mosher Excavating. Mosher keeps two Scottish Highland Cattle, Big and Rob on pastureland on his property. Over the years the two have become unofficial mascots welcoming people to Killington. When Irene hit, the river re-routed through the pasture destroying much of the pastureland and causing many to wonder what had happened to Big and Rob and their pasturemates Pedro the Donkey and Byron and Jessie the sheep. It turns out all are fine and Mosher has been busy recovering the land. I am writing an article on the subject for an upcoming article in Rutland Magazine.
The interview was fun and I had a chance to meet Pedro and Big and Rob up close. I, like many others, used to pass them by on my trips through the area and often would stop and try to snap a picture from the roadside. It is something else to be right on top of them. These guys are big! Big and Rob that is, Pedro is just a tiny donkey, although technically not a miniature.
I got home late and then had to travel to Burlington, Vt. to pick my father up at the airport. It's 1:30 a.m. and the pugs and I are curled up on the sofa as I write this blog. Tomorrow more work, but I did manage to pick up a few costumes for the pugs at after Halloween sales and hope to have a photoshoot soon. Hope to offer some greeting card giveaways when my new blog is up and running in the next couple of weeks. Will of course keep you all posted. In the meantime, enjoy meeting Big, Rob and Pedro!
