Rain Wonderful Rain and How It Affects the Ranch

Thank you tropical storm Lee. We all appreciate the 1″ of rain on Sunday and more again this Labor Day. A welcome respite from the drought covering this area of the south. It is messy for the boarding dogs and they are spending more time than usual inside. They get taken out for a quick […]
