Love Is In the Air – Or Not?

By Sushi

Now we all know the month of February has a mysterious way of stirring the love in our hearts. The farm is not exempt from February fever so let me tell you how it all went down.

Sammy the bull and the love of his life, Miss Ashley, were in their own field on this clear February day. It was a pleasant change from the cold grey winter we were having. Miss Ashley was lying up against an enormous round hay bale enjoying the sunlight on her gorgeous face. She is an elegant heifer and lady like, even when she’s munching her hay. She was getting close to calving and was resting quite a bit now. Miss Ashley has a reserved and confident demeanor. She is a trusted friend, you will never find a better one and boy can she bat those baby brown eyes and stare into the depths of your very soul. Don’t ever cross her or her family or you will be an enemy for life. She has incredible family values and these characteristics are what Sammy loves so much about her. … Continue Reading

Sushi – “Tails” from the Barnyard

January 8, 2014 Columns, Sushi's Corner Comments Off on Sushi – “Tails” from the Barnyard
sushi

By Sushi

A winter’s rose stood all alone in the solitude of the forbidden woods just beyond the opposite edge of our creek bed. Her perfect head glistened, silver drops of water like diamonds hung from her delicate petals. The clear waters of beaver dam creek sang along, while the crisp winter cold rustled through the leafless trees and their bows danced in the wind.

The sunlight played upon the diamonds of the rose beckoning one to take a closer look. With the intrigue of a great gem, like a pirate to treasure, I quickly found my way down toward the creek to inspect more closely. How could a rose be growing this time of year and in a more unlikely place for any rose to grow?

I was so lost in the rose I didn’t hear the tip toeing hoofs of a certain bad little lamb following me. As I got closer to the creek bed this bad little lamb slipped on a sheet of ice causing him to slide into me, knocking my stunned self into the bitter icy cold creek’s water. I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t swim and the rushing water took me in. The last thing I heard was the little lambs gasps and bahhhs. … Continue Reading

They Are Everywhere – Everywhere –

“Be afraid of the Black Wooly Bear’s – winter is here.”

By now you all must be familiar with my new wing man Murphy? He may appear to be one big meat head – but in reality he has a heart of gold, smart as a whip and loyal to a fault.

Murphy has a coat made for this cold winter weather, deep, dense, thick and warm as a true Saint Bernard’s coat should be. In fact, his coat puts a Wooly Bear’s coat to shame.

Have you ever seen a Wooly Bear? Do you even know what a Wooly Bear is? What? You don’t know? Well, I am here to tell you the wooliest of Wooly Bear stories, because it is my bred and born duty to tell you the greatest “Tails” from the barnyard at Fields of Athenry Farm. … Continue Reading

The Great Turkeys of Thanksgiving

By Sushi

Friends,

I can’t wait to tell you about this one, seriously crazy, crazy, crazy. Did any of you happen to be out in the forbidden woods around 2:00 a.m. Halloween night? Did you see and experience what I did? I had no choice but to be the brave and mighty Cairn terrier and protector of all things great and small at Fields of Athenry Farm. It would have been a lot better had this new Murphy fellow (the farm’s new seven-month-old Saint Bernard) been a little older and wiser. Really, how much can one be put to the test I ask?

I know, I know; I should put my full faith and trust in old brother moon. But sometimes it is just plain hard to relinquish control and trust with that kind of blind faith I tell you. … Continue Reading

By Sushi

I am Sushi, the brave and mighty Cairn Terrier, and my life flows with the rhythm of the farm that I bow down to in honor … to serve and defend. No storm can shake my inmost calm, I cling to the belief that this little man can. For you see, there is always some new creation around here to protect. When things get tough the tough get going and that is just what I need to do sometimes.

When it does get tough, I cling to my belief I can, I can, I can, and I can! The sound “I can!” triumphs like music in my ears and echoes in my soul. I trot around the farm as if I own the world. I believe I do. My beautiful farm is a place of magic and wonder. It is ever changing. All things are mine and how do I keep from bursting at the belly with joy and gladness? Fall is here and I feel like springing on hay bales and howling to the moon with complete joy. … Continue Reading

Country Roads Take Me Home…

September 4, 2013 Columns, Sushi's Corner Comments Off on Country Roads Take Me Home…
sushi

Country Roads take me home … it is the start of another school year and I am happy, sad, and nervous, but also excited for the grand adventures that will take my sweet farm girls into the unknown journeys of a new school year. Knowing these next couple years are nearing the end of many satisfying and simple carefree walks back to home at the end of long school days I must ask: What are these journeys? Why must they be? My girls leaving home – dreading leaving home, yet wanting to leave home, yet the comforts of home, yet not needing home because they want to be grown up – why oh why so many emotions? I the brave and mighty Cairn Terrier must be there for them to nurture and teach the values of leaving one’s home nest! I know – I remember a dark cold night going to some new family – wondering why oh why did I have to enter into the world of some other warm being besides the comfort of my own mother?

Ha, and here I am now fathering more than I am probably wanted, these children of mine – well of Mr. and Mrs. B. but as far as I’m concerned these girls are just as much mine as Mr. and Mrs. B. It is my born and bred duty to protect and defend at all cost these young ladies. So it is with much fatherly attitude I share with you my Cairn Terrier parental concerns as my girls enter a new school year: … Continue Reading

Loyalty. Service. Honor. Integrity.

Has anyone noticed that Virginia weather this year has been a little bit more than unusual?

My master, Mrs. B, is completely happy with the cooler than cool 2013 spring and summer we have had, while her daughter, Miss Bernie, would love the hotter than hot typical soggy Virginia summer day. A lot has been a more than unusual on this farm in 2013.

Let me tell you, I have all the inside scoop – and it comes from hours of laying patiently under the farm kitchen table, behind the farm shop counter, or taking a breezy ride around the farm on the Rhino, pretending I am just a dog. Seriously, do you even know where the CIA or the top seals – Navy seals – get the best of the best underground info? What? You don’t know what a Rhino is? You don’t know what a military trained dog is? … Continue Reading

Unconditional Love – Remembering Clover

July 2, 2013 Columns, Sushi's Corner Comments Off on Unconditional Love – Remembering Clover
sushi

My love for our farm is unconditional. If you really know me, you can see it in my eyes and it is always in my heart. I love children when they come to visit us and when the light in a child’s eyes shines, my heart shines. It’s amazing how children can speak right to our hearts, the touch of their hands, and the smiles on their face, the innocence of pure love in their excitement of the day.

In the entire world you’ll never find a place more loving of children than my world at Fields of Athenry Farm. It is a place where children can run and play and just be – children. … Continue Reading

Father of the Year

June 4, 2013 Columns, Sushi's Corner Comments Off on Father of the Year
sushigraphic

It is I, Sushi, the small but mighty Cairn Terrier. Do you have a Father of the Year?

June is the month we celebrate our Fathers. But, you know “Fathers Day” really is not just one day or one month out of the year. Fathers are a lifetime thing – or should be. My Father use to say to me “I will be your Father until the day I die and beyond that too! So don’t mess up because I will be watching you!” … and boy did he mean it.

You know, today there is a lot expected of a man. We are supposed to be sensitive yet at the same time beat the bezeebers out of anything dangerous that might cross our family. We need to provide a home, hunt and nourish, love and be loved. Sometimes by the time I am done with the nourishing and hunting I just want to go to my den and be left well enough alone. You know – like alright – already! … Continue Reading

… And They All Danced

sushi

Sometimes even a Mighty Cairn Terrier farm dog like me needs to take a little break.

Each and every day, start to finish, my concern for all of the farm creatures great and small is the very first and last thought on my mind. Dawn and dusk are the most prevalent times of a day when trouble will start and end one way or another for livestock on a farm.

I must always be alert for these are the hunting hours of our livestock’s most dreaded predators. So, although I choose what I call my “break away” moments carefully … I do take them. Even I need a little sunshine sometimes, you know those moments when you lay on your back, paws up and drift off into the wonders of a billowy-clouded sky? Best times of all, best times, ahhh, just to let the world go away …
I’m going to take one of those moments right now. Trotting down to the Beaverdam Creek as the sun sets, I am headed to get myself lost into the magical serenade of what I call the “vernal pool wilds.” … Continue Reading

Fields of Athenry Farm Lost and Found

April 5, 2013 Columns, Sushi's Corner Comments Off on Fields of Athenry Farm Lost and Found
sushi

As a working farm dog some days are beautifully satisfying and then other days are just weepy heartaches. March is the perfect example of the unexpected time of year I am about to describe; you know – the in-like-a-lion-out-like-a lamb month of March?

For example; it was just early yesterday evening when I dutifully trotted down to the barnyard checking on our new baby lambs one more time before the sun set. The sky spitted ice, winds were billowing up from the Beaver dam Creek and the snow began to fall. Really, I asked? It is almost Easter! But, being the great protector of all things large and small on the farm, I shook off my wiry Cairn Terrier coat and deftly rounded up the lambs and stray ducklings, guiding them into the barn isle and under the brand new warming lamps. Here, in the protection of that barn, the babies would be kept sheltered from the unexpected weather. I was as satisfied as could be, knowing that all of my little vulnerable ones were safe and warm no matter what the night might bring. I trotted home to the big white farmhouse. … Continue Reading

Taming the Leprechaun in Me

March 9, 2013 Columns, Sushi's Corner Comments Off on Taming the Leprechaun in Me
sushi

Hi there, it’s me, the Mighty Cairn Terrier Sushi. We’re coming on early spring here at Fields of Athenry Farm. Baby lambs are bouncing around in the sun, doing happily frivolous things. But, that’s not where my head is right now, certainly not feeling frivolous, more like down in the dumps and unloved.

You see, one of the “other” farm dogs, that stage-stealing bullmastiff Clover, is down at the barn primping and preening herself – quite frankly, I think she is acting more like a duck! – All in preparation for her upcoming birthday. She was born on Saint Patrick’s Day, one of my master Mrs. B’s favorite holidays of the year, and, a really big birthday bash is being planned for her here at the farm.

I mean, really? The dog isn’t even Irish! She’s English for goodness sake and for weeks on end it’s been Clover this and Clover that. The dog can do no wrong. It is so annoying. And, that’s when it hits me. Sushi, I say to myself, you’re of Irish descent, you know … and Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up … and since you are in a rather mischievous mood … why not morph yourself into a silly little leprechaun and play some kind of practical birthday joke on Clover?

I am giddy at the thought of a good practical joke on her queenship! It must be something fun. Ahhhhhh, I got it, me as a leprechaun, doing something very mischievous to the queen bee. Fun, fun, fun. (And, it’s just a joke, after all … right?)

And, so, I scheme. I scheme in my small but very inventive Cairn Terrier head and come upon a decidedly Irish idea – perfect for Saint Patrick’s Day. I decide to dye one of those cute little lambs green, and blame it on Clover. It’s such a brilliant idea my mood is almost instantly elevated and so I set out for the house and that special basket Mr. B keeps all of those big chalk crayons – the perfect weapon of choice as when they get wet and gooey, mixed with a little green Easter egg coloring, they will paint a little lamb green as green can be! My plan is just divine! Everyone knows it is Clover who watches over the lambs. I can hardly stand my brilliance. Her glorified days are over!

Gnarly Gander, our stately farm goose, intercepts me on the way to the house. “Sushi, you look funny, like you might be down, but at the same time, you might be up to something? “Are you all right?” Gnarly says with a touch of concern. Gnarly’ s compassion touched me, but I was still in my part angry part mischievous mood and so I said “Go away Gnarly Gander, I don’t feel like talking to you or anybody else!” “Sushi; what’s wrong little man?” Gnarly asked. “I’ll tell you what’s wrong!” I snapped. “Everything is all about Clover. No one notices me anymore. I feel invisible. Mrs. B is dotting on that Irish imposter and Clover is down at the barn primping and preening and I just can’t stand it!” “Awe, Sushi,” said Gnarly, “You know Mrs. B and everyone loves you; but more than that, Clover is crazy about you! Just the other day Clover lay with me in the warm sun and reminisced how wonderful it was doing guard duty with you for the entire farm. She rolled on her back, carrying on about that time you alerted her to the hawk aiming to steal Lady Miss Gracious for his chicken dinner. She went on story after story about how grand you two work together – you, fast on those four little legs, and she with the brawn. What a perfect team you are together. It was so much togetherness Sushi about you two; I had to duck my head into Quackery Pond.

Well, that did it. I looked at Gnarly Gander, a glint of tear in my eye and said, “You know, when one of us is down, here on the farm, another one of us always knows how to lift us up, remind us we are part of a plan, part of a family. Thanks, Gnarly, for reminding me of that. It’s not about one of us, it’s about all of us. I think I’ll go back to the barn and surprise Clover. We have some birthday party planning to do!”

– All my love, Sushi.
