The Guest Bathroom is Getting Full

I have planned poorly.

It is five days until the Mother's Day brunch when I will have a dozen or so human visitors.

And, in the guest bathroom, I have fly predators hatching and chicks cheeping.

The dining room is just as lively -- with four dog crates, a few with Border collies and one with an incubator with hatching eggs.

And yet, I'm not too worried.

Because a house full of lively critters guarantees lively conversation, right? And, if nothing else, it might just distract from a cobweb, a bone buried in the couch, a layer of dust.


  1. We are of the same mind! But--how do you keep border collies In. A. Crate? Have a refreshing Mom's Day in spite of the chirping, peeping, whining chorus!

  2. Border collies thrive on lots of exercise, mental stimulation and structure, or routine. They work hard outside, and are expected to settle in the house... and they do.
