Our border collies Jenna and Jack both started their lives as herding trial dogs, trained and handled by a really talented man. So… at our farm they dote on Brian. Actually moon over him, even though we both handle them with our sheep. Every time Jack fawns over Brian, I tell him ‘I want a puppy for Christmas, dammit’. I guess Christmas came early this year! She’s an 18 lb. great pyrenees pup who should grow to about 100 lbs. Her job will be to guard our flock (not an indoor dog!) We’re working on a name, and teaching her to walk on a lead so we can get her to the vet when needed. Our karakachan Milos died last year, and his sister FiFi is showing her age. We’ll miss her big time when she’s gone. This little one has big paws to fill.
