I realize I talk a LOT about my dog Bob...
And I also talk quite a bit about my dog Marley....
They have the life...Romping and frolicking all day long.
Sleeping in bed ...Cozy as can be when its cold outside.
But I also have other dogs. Dogs that have *jobs*...
He is an
Anatolian Shepard..This breed originated in Turkey. They are used to fend off such prey as wolves, coyotes, bears and even Cheetahs! This is one tough canine...
My Ben is as sweet as can be to me and anyone I take down to the barn area. He is gentle with my grandchildren and would never hurt them in any way. I trust him totally. BUT..I can assure you, if anyone or anything was hurting his herd, it would become serious business quick!
I have had Ben since he was a bitty puppy. My vet stated she never saw a puppy grow so big so fast. I was milking the entire time during his puppy hood, and every evening he would get a gigantic bowl of goats milk for dinner. He grew big, strong and healthy! But he also believes he is indeed a goat. This is evident in that he likes to eat their food, sleep right alongside them and cries when they are out of his sight. Its a scene to behold.
I really admire the livestock guardian group..
But I also admire the
