Anyone who has stayed with us has enjoyed (?) a big welcome from our greeters, dumped dogs we've rescued over the years.
Torvald, Norwegian for "Son of Thunder," is the newest addition to our family. He wandered out of the woods one morning, half-frozen, muddy, terrified and starving. In other words, about the same shape as all our other cats and dogs were when they found us.
In this photograph, Torvald is "helping me" prune the trees in the Dancing Bean's small orchard.
