Weekend Dog Blogging #24: A Stock Dog's Work is Never Done

You Can Add Babysitting To Bear's Job Description

© Copyright 2006


  1. I think Bear will have his hands full with all the babysitting he will be doing this spring with all the Mommas about to have babies.

  2. Awww! That is just precious. Good job Bear, keeping all those babies out of trouble.

  3. Hi Alisha,
    Ha ha, yes, I guess he must have eyes in the back of his head. Been a long time since I've had (or been) a babysitter. : )

    Hi Vickie,
    Bear, who faithfully accompanies me down to the barn at all hours of the day and night, is getting a little whupped. And so am I. I'm not sure how we're going to make it through the rest of lambing season. I know. I just need to think like a dog. Naps!

    Hi Sunidesus,
    He really is an amazing guy. LOVES his sheep!

  4. Beautiful (handsome?) Bear! What is his heritage?? He looks positivitly related to a "mutt" dog I once had the benefit of knowing...

  5. Hi Gina,
    Welcome to the farm! Thanks for your comment and email. My apologies for not replying to you sooner. I could have sworn I left you a reply here about Bear, but I was obviously wrong.

    Anyway, Lucky Buddy Bear is the product of an accidental liaison between two excellent stock dogs. His father is an Australian Shepherd, and his mother is an English Shepherd. He looks exactly like his mother only with much shorter legs (and he has that Aussie white on his chest).

    Somewhere I wrote at least one comment all about him, but naturally I cannot find them now. Click here to see Bear at work.

    His instincts are absolutely amazing, and they seem to kick in more and more every day. He is four years old now and very smart. So entirely different than Robin, my beagle, who has her own set of instincts and habits.

    Bear just adores his sheep. If you'd like to see more photos of him, simply put "Bear" or "Lucky Buddy Bear" into the search box at the top of the Farmgirl Fare homepage and hit "search this blog."

    Thanks again for taking the time to write. I hope I'll hear from you again, and I look forward to checking out your new blog, Raising Frolic. Welcome to the crazy world of blogging! : )

December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
