Wonderful Wednesday! - Nitro With Chicks, Chicks And More Chicks!

A few weeks ago Nitro, Chris and I went to the  German Shepherd Rescue of NC Adopt-A-Day at our local Tractor Supply Co store to see all the pretty German Shepherd Dogs and to drop off a donation to the rescue. There was some beautiful black puppies that looked to be about three months old. We also noticed a lot of local Shepherd owners stopped by to visit, check out potential adoptees and give a donation with thier German Shepherds in tow.

The German Shepherd rescue set up a photo booth where anyone could have their photo taken with thier dog (for a cash donation). Folks were lining up to have thier photos taken but I have to say the most popular area in the store was the big litter of Black German Shepherd mix puppies that were up for adoption. The GSR had a great turn out and Nitro got to meet new friends and also see all the new chicks. No not chicks of the female German Shepherd variety but of the poultry persuasion. They had new sets of baby chickens and ducklings under heat lamps in big metal watering troughs. They were all so adorable. Check out are photos at Tractor Supply.

 Nitro always paying attention to his mommy for direction - such a good boy!

 Check out these big beautiful black shepherd mix puppies looking for "furever" homes.

 Even the store employees couldn't stay away from those cute little pups.

 It's like they are rushing in and saying..."no, no,...pick me...pick me!"

 Chicks, chicks and more chicks ...oh my! I wish I had a big safe pond where I could raise some ducks (we have lots of foxes here in the farm so they would not be safe)!

These little yellow chicks will grow up to be big white Leghorn Chickens. These sure remind me of when I was a child. We had a little store called The Corner Store in Nebraska and at Easter time the chicks would be sprayed all different colors (with food coloring) and one year my mom got us some chicks. They grew from really small and cute to really big and ugly. When they got big, we gave them to the farmer up the road.

 Goose?  Goose?  Duck!!!

 chicks..chicks...and more chicks!

 The little brown chicks are called Rhode Island Reds

 Sorry, the cowgirl in me had to share these boot photos!

 I love these hot pink farm muck boots!

I wear my cowgirl hat about 80% of the time in the summer months so I had to include this photo of CEC hats (Cheif Executive Cowchick).

Nitro just watching everything (this photo was taken right before his wrappings came off his injured paw).

Happy Wonderful Over The Hump Wednesday!

Lexi, Nitro, Tallulah, Bailey and Christina


  1. I'm just so in love with Nitro's face. Glad his paw is healed and he is now unleashed from his mama's side. :-)

  2. Wow what a great adventure. I wish we had a store like that around here!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  3. Have a great rest of the week! How could you resist those pups? I'd be wanting to take at least one home with us.


  4. I really hope you bought a pair of those pink boots! Too cool. Shame about the foxes. Ducks would fit in great on your farm otherwise. Hope you all are having a good week so far. Zoe and I are going on our trip Friday. Wish us luck!!

  5. Those puppies remind of my Nyxie when she was just a little sprout! Such soft, downy fur...

    I do love those muck boots ;)
