I'm a sucker....what can I say.....

For a sweet, drooly face :) (click to bigify)


A friend of mine who does dog rescue, as well as training, texted me about whether I would be interested in fostering a ASD/Kangal cross pup, neutered, up to date on his shots that had been pulled from a local humane society...."Sure!" says I, what is the harm in that....

Not even two days later I was thinking of my guardian dogs as a team, the Degerli and Suti show! Watch out mountain lions and coyotes you may have met your match!
They make the rounds together, walking the fence line and practicing skills in dealing with predators.....
Yes that is a leaf that Degerli has in her mouth....:)
Degerli and Dulcie seem to have a special connection which makes it hard to face the fact that Dulcie will be going to a new home soon. We have the sweet itch under control, but now she has allergies to the molds/pollens/etc. that we have here on the west side of the Cascades, that will keep her from being ridden as I had hoped. Not to mention it making it hard for her to breathe without medicinal help. :(


Heading back to the barn...
For a little cooling off which Suti has down to a science.....

Sorry to hear Dulcie isn't working out, but the new guard team looks tops! I must say that the animal parade at your place sometimes resembles a revolving door!

Michelle, I've got to agree with you there! Keeps thing interesting though! It all boils down to what/who works and what/who doesn't. Dulcie is very hard for me, I'm very attached, it's just in her best interest as well as mine. There is a gal that is interested in taking Dulcie (has Kigers and has actually bred Dulcie to her stallions twice before) and will be trading me a gelding for her. I'll do a post when I get him home.

Poor Dulcie. She'd love it here....no mold or mositure problems whatsoever. lol!

The dogs are lovely. I've never heard of those breeds, but they sure look fierce and cuddly all at the same time. The water tank photo cracks me up. lol!
