And Go to Work
Daisy is a Great Pyrenees livestock guardian. Her first loyalty is to her flock. Lucky Buddy Bear is an English/Australian Shepherd stock dog. His duties include everything from herding to babysitting to wool drying to breaking up barnyard brawls, and lambing season is by far his favorite time of year. He loves his sheep, but his first loyalty is to me (and Joe, when I'm not around). His heart, however, firmly belongs to Daisy. Fortunately she's pretty crazy about him, too.

© Copyright 2009 FarmgirlFare.com, the carefully guarded foodie farm blog where Daisy works with Marta, an almost two-year-old Great Pyrenees mix who has lately been carrying home hunks of carcasses discarded by deer hunters that she discovers while patrolling the woods. There's nothing that helps while away the work hours like gnawing on an enormous bone—and there's nothing that makes a guard dog look more vicious than having her face and paws covered in blood.
