©, the party hardy foodie farm blog where Marta, who is a sweet (and enormous!) livestock guardian dog, basically has two looks: pissed off and pink tongued. She's usually not as mad as she appears to be (unless she's scaring away predators), and itty bitty Bert has actually convinced her to chase him around and play a couple of times. Talk about cute.


  1. Awwww! Happy Birthday, Marta!!!

  2. Marta turns Three--Happy Happy Birthday, Big Girl. Thanks for the lovely pic essays every day despite your busy busy days.

  3. They are very cute!! Hope you had a good day.

  4. Oh my gosh! What cute doggies! We have a wheaten Terrier and she reminds me a little of the big white fluffy one in the pics.


  5. Happy Birthday Marta! How lucky you are to get a puppy for your birthday!

    He's a lucky dog to have found your place....

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!
