© Copyright 2008 FarmgirlFare.com, the award-winning blog where (finally!) both fluffy white livestock guardian pups (who are a Great Pyrenees, Komondor, and Anatolian Shepherd cross — and are getting huge) have names! Lottie actually got hers a few weeks after arriving on the farm back in March, and right from the start we wanted to call the other one Clare, but that rhymes with Bear and — um, we'd better sign off before we break into showtunes.


  1. They are just so cute! :-)

    Happy Tuesday!

  2. Adorable! Look how happy that pup is!

  3. Way to keep cool, Martha and Lottie! I love their names. And when they're wet they don't look quite as big. O.K. still big, but not as puffy.

  4. Sorry - MarTa. Not Martha. Even better, I had a great friend, with fantastically thick hair at college named Marta. I don't know how she always managed it so.

  5. There's a sheep in that photo with brown splodgy markings like chocolate chip icecream! Gorgeous!

  6. So sweet! Though I see you saying a lot of Marty and Lotta... I mean, Marta and Lottie :)

  7. I like the names! Marta is nicer than Martha, I think! (But ask my granddaughter, Bubba - she likes MarTHa!)

    Nice picture of soggy doggies!

  8. I think you may have burned my retinas with the cuteness.

  9. Mmmm, dog flavored water. Crisp, well rounded, with just a hint of flea spray. Those sheep of yours are so spoiled!

  10. I love the shading on the pup - the pure white where the water has been spraying, the slightly dirtier gray around that and the oh-so-filthy face! But you know what? Clean, dirty, soaking wet...they are so darned cute!

  11. How cute, and what great names.

  12. Despite not leaving comments, I do still come by and read about the summer camp activities! Looks like swimming is one of them.

  13. Ohhhh, how I love The Music Man!

    Yeah, you got Doggies
    Right here on your farm!
    That's a capital D, a great big D
    And that stands for Drool!

    No, really, I'm OK now. And your sheepies and semi-puppies are adorable, as always.

  14. How sweet! It has been hot here too.

  15. These all pictures are so cute and adorable,I liked them all.


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!
