Henry Hee-Haw join's the Family!

Come on over to visit our new friend Henry-Hee Haw! Henry is a 5 year old sicilian donkey. He is making a great addition to the farm family and learning his new name well. He has made great friends with our pony Jasmine and have quickly became inseparable.
The Sicilian breed is noted for a cross-shaped marking along the back beginning at the base of the neck. Legend says that Jesus rode a Sicilian donkey and that is the reason for the cross-shaped marking.

Spring is here!

Signs of Spring have arrived in full force!  Our garden has taken off and is looking great.  We have planted a wide variety of veggies this year including, sweet corn, summer squash, peppers, onions, Tomato's, Basil, Peas, Green Beans, strawberries and a few others.  We will have some of the veggies for sale at our stand where we  have the fresh eggs and honey available.

We recently purchased a new flock of young hens, and plan to purchase another young flock this coming week.  The birds are just starting to lay, and will produce smaller eggs.  They obviously taste the same, and are raised the same, just small!  They are great for children or someone watching their diet.  They are great  served as appetizers!

Remember our Doggy Playdates, every Saturday 1-3.  Bring your four legged friend out for some off leash running.   Lots of fun for all, and free coffee!

Enjoy Spring!

Check us out in the Fall River Herald News!

We're stars again! The Herald News did an article on us. They focused on the Doggy Playdate and Doggie Daycare. It came across well and is sure to spread the word on the goings-on here at Run Dog Run Farm. You can contact us at 401-662-1672 or

Doggie Playdate this (and every) Saturday 1-3pm

We will be having our weekly doggie playdate this Saturday from 1-3pm. For those of you that don't know, we have a large dog safe enclosure surrounded by 6 foot fences. That area is our unsupervised dog yard (but most people hang out in there too). The rest of the farm is our supervised area that dogs and there owners can wander on-leash and check out our garden, chickens, goats and horse, Jasmine.

We serve complimentary coffee, juice, and snacks. There's plenty to do for kids too. We have a swingset, slides and petting zoo. One game we let older kids play is "catch the chicken". Quite often we have several escapee chickens wandering the farm, we let kids catch them and put them back in there enclosure. It's more fun than it sounds!

The cost for the playdate is $10 and $7 for each additional dog. It is held every Saturday 1-3. If it is a total washout, the raindate is the following Sunday. If you would like to reserve a space or get more information, call 401-662-1672 or email We are at 328 American Legion Hwy (Rte 177) in Westport, MA.

10th Annual Pet Fest at Buttonwood Park, New Bedford

We just got back from the Pet Fest at Buttonwood Park in New Bedford, MA. We had a booth set up selling eggs, honey, dog cookies and promoting our Doggie Daycare and Doggie Playdates. We met a lot of great people and saw some cool dogs. 

The Pet Fest benefited The Coalition for Animals. Here is their mission statement:

Our mission is to create awareness in the community for the humane treatment of all animals; to help end the problem of companion animal overpopulation through spay/neuter; to promote the adoption of homeless companion animals; and to provide people with the educational information they need to help keep their companion animals safe and healthy.

Goldie's the Hero

Yesterday, while playing out in the yard with the kids, a Very Large Pit bull runs up to our gate. I send Chad up to investigate, calling the kids back further into the yard not wanting any trouble from the new friend who arrived.  The Pit bull was obviously nervous, and as Chad approached him he ran behind our van.  Suddenly he came Running full speed and straight out of our yard, and who was right behind him, Goldies.
Later that night we went for a walk, on our way back it began to rain, and we began to run.  As we took a corner, we come face to face with our new friend, Again!  He again ran down the road and we called Animal Control.  We lost track of him on 177, but really hope he made it to his family. 
Best of Luck Mr. Pitt Bull
