Baby Teefee had a very hard start and landed in an emergency veterinary hospital when he was quite little. The kind staff cared for him until he was healthy enough to be released to a family dedicated to his continued rehabilitation. Knowing Teefee would be happiest released back into his natural habitat and independent of humans, his caregivers kept an eye out for the moment he was ready to be set free in his new world.

While beginning a picnic by the pond a few weeks ago we were reminded to be grateful and thankful for all that we have. This quiet message came at just the right time - like most important messages do.
Thank goodness the person that was mowing our front field was so attentive to what lay in the deep grass ahead. This sweet fawn changed our mowing schedule for a few days and on her own time made a new home in the nearby woods.
