Weekend Dog Blogging #46

One Last Bite Before Bed

All of the other sheep have been rounded up and are headed for the barn, but Cary has discovered a tasty patch of grass and refuses to budge. The Nanny Bear doesn't mind, though. He patiently keeps his ears to the wind, his eyes on his charge, and that trademark grin on his face. Cary is safe with him on the watch. Besides, he knows she'll be done nibbling soon--then they'll catch up to the flock in no time.

Lucky Buddy Bear is half English Shepherd and half Australian Shepherd. He loves his sheep! Click here for more about him.

  1. Ok so it looks overly offical. Carey is no longer a baby. I hope that I can live with this fact.

    You did a good job Mom!

  2. Oh Yellow Dog,
    I hope it's not over yet! Just because she's the same size as The Nanny Bear doesn't mean she isn't still my baby. Why just this morning she was sitting here by my feet while I was at the computer.

    Though I have to admit, I didn't think The Assimilation Process into the flock (and the gradual "weaning" of Cary off me) would hit me so hard. I still treasure every day we have together (yes, paper towels, Nature's Miracle, munched garden crops, nearly swallowed pens and clothespins, and all. . .) : )

  3. I just love The Nanny Bear - he's so devoted and such a good watchdog.

    I love seeing dogs in their element, instead of cooped up in apartments or being forced to ignore their natural instincts. Which, in this case, are carefully eyeballing a precious lamb.

    Good job, mama -- all around.

  4. when i was a kid i had an australian shepherd.she was the smartest dog i've ever known...and loved to run like the wind. she liked to herd the kittens.


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!
