We got our picture in the paper!

Name: Flock of sheep
Pedigree: Shetland sheep are native to Scotland but are becoming more popular in the U.S. because of their small size and hardy constitution. They are friendly and their naturally short, V-shaped tails are known to wag when they are petted.
People: John Park and Tina Thomsen-Park, Bellingham

So this is what got printed in today's Bellingham Herald! Pretty cool, huh? They have a regular weekly column called Pet Parade, and people send in their favorite pet pictures. I thought they needed something else besides cats, dogs & the occasional rabbit. So, end of this summer, I sent in this picture that I took last spring. Our pasture looks so lush & green in this pic - it looks pretty toasty now, but with the little rain that we've had, it's coming back slowly

That's our exciting news for the day. Back to working on payroll. T.

Nice looking flock. I am hoping someday to have one of those myself. How do you think they would do in the heat of central Texas?

Looks like some pretty nice sheep there, Tina! :) And Kudos for having them chosen for the paper.
