Hi, we are Tyler and Olivia Gries. We are third-generation members of the Calkins 4-H Agricultural Club and the fifth generation to live on the family dairy farm in Boyds Mills. We have five dairy animals and four market hogs we will be showing at the Wayne County Fair.
Have you ever been to the Wayne County Fair and wandered through the animal barns and wondered what the 4-H barns are all about? My name is Rachel Olver, and I am a sophomore at Honesdale High School and a member of the Calkins Agricultural 4-H club.

Does your dog have protruding piece of pink/red tissue in the corner of his or her eye? Does this piece of tissue change in size? Your dog may have a “cherry eye!” Many mammals, including dogs, have an extra or third eyelid located inside the lower eyelid. This piece of tissue is also referred to as the nictitating membrane.
I am often asked, do cats mourn? It is difficult to assess what those mournful eyes mean, since our feline friends cannot tell us what they are feeling. However, astute pet parents can interpret their pets’ emotions based on their behavior.
