I catch her and lock the doors so she cannot get out. Poor girl she was really wanting a conjugal visit.…

I did give her a sweater as well.…

Both does were pregnant. I got two 8 week old does (full sisters to one of the does).  They still need names.…

Yep, got your payment on Wednesday. The soap has been boxed up since then. I just haven't had a chance to do the Click-n-ship to get it in the mail. It should happen Monday.
