No good deed goes unpunished

Three days ago dh brought home a dog from work. It was an odd looking little thing and very frightened. He was told it has been abused by it previous owner and the person who rescued it couldn't keep her with pit bull and Rottweiler that she had. My dh is an animal lover, though he'd never admit it. So the little lady came home with him without much question. The next day I looked at her and noticed that her stomach seemed unusually large for such a small dog. Her teats were also protruding, now I'm no dog expert and my experience with the little critters is very limited. Dh asked around work and he was told to check her teats for milk. Well AR is the only person she likes so he was able to tell us that there was in fact milk. We set up the old chicken room for her, but of course she prefered the laundry room. Oh, we've named her Mini, in case you're wondering. This morning we woke up to 3 new puppies and their mama sleeping in the laundry room. I imagine bubba will be in his glee once they can play.

As if that was not enough excitement for the day, dh went out to feed the animals at lunch and the beef cows were missing. He got in the car to go look for them and as he went to turn he bottomed out the car in a ditch. He walked back to the house hoping to be able to take the truck but sure enough the battery has died and still no cows to be seen. It is now past the time for him to get ready for work so he had to call in. :( Turns out that the corner of the electric fence came off/broke (not too sure) and that dropped the fence for them to leave. He and AR took off on foot to try and find the cows, hopefully they can find them and get them back in without incident. A girl can hope anyway.
