© Copyright 2009, the big dog foodie farm blog where our livestock guardian girls have the run of the farm—and we finally realized who (despite being served very large dinners) has been sneaking up and ransacking Bear's dog food dish on the kitchen porch, Smudge's cat food dish on a chest freezer on the kitchen porch, Whiskers' cat food dish up on his porch railing, and Sylvester and Topaz's little Fiesta dish on the potting bench in the middle of the night. Any big white guesses?


  1. I just discovered your blog and will definitely be back for more. What beautiful animals you have, and I love your header, too cute.

  2. Your big girls sure look like they would protect their sheep against anything. I'm sure Daisy will be a good example for her young friend. What a happy, and nice looking pair of pups!

  3. I popped in from PW. We have Anatolians. Our female passed away last December and we are just now trying to decide if we want another right away. Our male has turned into a fat, lazy lump. I cannot leave the rescue greyhound to be the only dog who works. We are looking at an 18 mo old. Your photos are lovely even tho the stories are not always cheerful.

    We live in NW Illinois, but visit MO every May. We take our horses down to Eminence for 8 or 10 days. I like your site. Later -


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!
