Little Wilbur, our newest arrival, is settling in and making himself at home. He spent his first couple of weeks in a bumper bed, keeping pretty much to himself, but in the past few days he's started getting out and about. I took these photos yesterday -- the one with Dexter was about 7:45 in the morning, and the one with Avery was just before noon. He was certainly happy to be out meeting and greeting, apparently.
Yes, that's a rather pronounced nipple on Avery; it's not cancerous or malignant, just an unusual 'beauty mark,' he calls it.
Speaking of teeth, after his dental surgery Wilbur now has only six teeth left in his mouth. He and Dexter may be tied for first place in the "fewest teeth on the farm" category. They're quite a pair of "old gummers."
The new Shelter Challenge started Monday, January 9 and ends at midnight on March 18. Grand prize in this round is $5,000, plus $1,000 for weekly winners and $1,000 for state winners. There are also other categories ... please see the Shelter Challenge website for details.
*** Okay, this is important, folks: We are now LISTED UNDER OUR NEW NAME, ROLLING DOG FARM. State is still NH for New Hampshire. ***

We won $1,000 as a weekly winner in the last contest, and thousands more in the previous contests. The Shelter Challenge really does bring in a lot of money for the animals here!
