Here are pictures of their last litter of 8
born February 2011.
They were born in the barn & raised with the
As soon as they were old enough we opened a gate & let them go in with young
They even slept with them.
All of them have gone to new homes. Most went to working sheep & goat farms.
We drilled a well several years ago. Jim dug a
ditch, 3' wide X 3' deep X 40' long to catch the sludge & prevent it from
running into the stream.
The sludge was like quick sand...very gooey. We were sitting by the window
drinking our morning coffee when Bear came to the fence barking & raising
cain. He wanted us to come out. When we came out he ran toward the barn so Jim
followed. He went straight to the ditch & began barking again. Jim ran to
the ditch to see what had him so upset. There was a young doeling drowning in
the muck. Jim was able to grab her collar & pull her out. Bear guarded the
ditch for days & would not let any of the goats get near it.
We have seen kids outside the barn in inclement
weather crying for mom.
Bear will put them between his front legs & push them into the barn where
they find mom.
The babies like to climb up on Bear when he is laying down. He doesn't mind at
One cold January morning Jim went to feed and our LGD
Bruce was laying inside with the goats.
Not normal for him. Jim looked
Bruce was snuggled up protecting a tiny baby goat less than a week old.
He apparently got separated from his mom who was in the main barn and
crawled thru the fence,
across the driveway, thru another fence
and into the buck pen.
He would not have
survived the night without Bruce.
May 4, 2012 Hi Jim and Sue,
This is the puppy we purchased from you, born in October 2011. I wanted to let
you know how awesome she is & that she is freaking huge.
This picture does not show her size well. She is 100 lbs, our lab is 95lbs. She
stands 1 inch taller than him.
I have had many, many puppies in my life and never had a puppy that was so easy
to train and to trust. More than anything, I am impressed with her natural
She is with me all day at the barn, she watches what I do and when it is time to
bring the horses into the barn,
she goes to the field, gently rounds them up, then sits in the rear of the herd
and waits for me to open the gate. If one of them lags behind she waits and
coaches them in.
I have activities at the barn that are often noisy and chaotic. During these
times instead of being in the middle of the activity, jumping on the kids,
she goes to the field and lays with the horses. I also have alpacas, that are
notorious for hating dogs.
None of my dogs have ever been tolerated by the alpacas until now.
When pebbles decided to introduce herself, she initially met with the same
aggression as the other dogs. Her response, instead of running away, was to sit
When the alpacas relaxed, she stood up and took another step forward. When, they
showed anxiety, she sat down.
This pattern repeated itself until 30 minutes later, she was laying among them,
with them eating peacefully.
You are welcome to share this with potential puppy lookers. Thank you for my
living Teddy bear. Happy Trails, Kim
These LGDs are amazing!
And they love attention!
