Breaking New Videos -- EDNAH they way it should have been
Anyone remember the email the EDNAH hoarding lady sent around about how the dogs lived on a virtually oasis where the they came and went from cabins she has built for them and could go swimming in the lake anytime they wish? What BS that was. I fell for it. But only because I knew a place like that existed. Where? On my farm. I didn't want to talk about it till I had some video to back it up (and no we are are not accepting any more doggies. We are full)
This is the farm http://www.pineacrestreefarm.com/
My father's 100 acre Christmas Tree farm in Western, MD.
Tucked away against the mountain is a farmhouse with a big front porch and a wrap around porch. 18 dogs call it home. They come and go as they please but they never go far. They go swimming any time they want in two ponds. Most of the time you can find them laying on the porch which is where most of them sleep both day and night, although they can sleep inside if they want..some do and some don't. When my father goes out to work each morning they all follow him out on the farm...but one by one they get hot and tired and head back to the porch. They are allowed inside but they choose to spend most of the time outside. Several of them are bad when guests come with other dogs so that is the only time they get hooked to a dog house for a few hours but the leash is long and they have a big pine tree to crawl under for shade...You will see Bear tied up. He was rescued from 4 years of being tied up and never loose. He gets a little mean with dogs he doesn't know so a few hours on the box isn't going to hurt him.
Video One (Quicktime, 4MB) Snapshot of the dogs and farmhouse.
Video Two (Quicktime, 21MB) All the dogs going for a walk.
The cast: Bradley, Brooke, Sharkey, Roddie, Bear, Luna, Cole, Mr. Akita, Buddy, Barkley, Zoe, Tic, Toc, Jace, and others ....
As an extra here is one of the funniest things I have ever heard of. Exactly what you would expect out a dog put in a room with 100's of teddy bears. What were they thinking.
Also, while you are here please watch the Video to the right titled "Chained Dogs" and go get one off a chain this month. Usually money does the trick.
And here are some of the farm dogs in nice picture...
