If you have stepped one foot on our farm at any time in the last 10 years you would have had the pleasure of meeting Manfred. Otherwise known as Manny, Diggety, Stupe, Belvedere, Mr. Stink, and Friend, just to name a few of his aliases – Manfred inspired nonsense in all of us. He was a working dog in every sense of the word and his main job was to make people smile.
Manfred liked to have his hand (and head) in everything and could be counted on to oversee all operations.
He also knew how to relax when the day was done.
Towards the end Manfred had some really good days…
and some bad days.
Manfred’s spirit moved on yesterday. He touched us deeply while he was with us. We will miss him.
Pearl is certainly in mourning.
If we could all bring as much pleasure to people as Manfred did what a wonderful world this would be.
