Casita Couch Covers

Thursday, March 24th, 2011 by Marie

Javiero recently sewed couch covers for the Casita couches, which are a bit aged, to say the least. He made two sets of covers which we can change out and wash when they become dirty from use by dusty hikers, eco-builders, and Kali-Spot (our beloved hairy cat who, without our consent, moved herself in to the house).

The Dogs and Niklas

Sunday, June 6th, 2010 by Marie

Niklas has been here nearly two months now, and we love how much he loves the dogs.

And the cats.

And all living creatures.

A great guy who makes life better for animals and people around him.

Goodbye Goldie

Saturday, November 21st, 2009 by Marie

Goldie died this morning. She was a very good dog for many years, but had been getting skinnier and slower this last week, and it was time for her to go.

She lived with us in the forest for five years. She had two litters of puppies - 9 pups total - 6 of which still live here in the Bosque.

She loved to run around the woods, dig for things, and roll around in the sun. She was a very sweet and happy dog and very polite when she wanted love and attention.  We love you Goldie!

Rattlesnake bite #3

Thursday, October 1st, 2009 by Marie

First: Mambo.

Second: Contreras.

Third: Luna.

Another rattlesnake bite a few days ago.  Unlike Contreras, who was mostly sad, and Mambo, who likely didn’t notice anything wrong, Luna was ticked.  Luna is a human trapped in a dog suit and does not like to be pestered with injuries or snake bites.

We gave her some medicine and tried to keep her from adventuring too much for a couple of days.  She healed remarkably quickly; the snake just got her once in the ear.

Rattlesnakes do live in the forest, but they are quite shy and we rarely see them.  The dogs are much more adventurous (and stupid) than us, and encounter a whole different world of things during their daily fun in the woods.

Luna is happier now.

Sebastian was being bad.

He followed us to part of the Bosque where dogs aren’t allowed - the highest point of the forest.  He was very sneaky.

And he pretended he was not there.  “If I pretend I am somewhere else, they will not see me!!”

So we put leaves on his head and pretended he wasn’t there too.
