Hi! Farmer Tam is gonna be my new shepherdess in a few weeks, but for now I live with my 10 brothers and sisters at Luci Fortunato's farm in Andover, VT & our mom & dad are teaching us all about taking care of the flock of sheep we live with. When Farmer Tam came to visit me with Char & Miranda 2 weeks ago, I was itty-bitty. But look at me now! I'm so big! Apparently I'm going to keep growing to be somewhere near 50-60lbs, so I'll never be this little again, that's why Farmer Tam is sharing my picture today. Oh my goodness, I can't wait to be one of the crew on Wing & A Prayer Farm! I've heard that Farmer Tam is a big mush when it comes to the animals!
When I get to the farm,I'll let you know all about how it goes for me as the new LGA(Livestock Guardian Animal) & more about Maremma dogs in particular. Get your questions ready!
To answer the first, no, I've not been named yet, but I'll answer to 'Sweetie!'
It's National Puppy Day!!!! Miranda is holding our newest baby, who will be coming home to protect our flocks in April. This 3-week old Maremma pup is one of a litter of 11, & you could imagine how impossible it was to decide. We ended up choosing this lil gal based on her very relaxed behavior & her size(she was slightly bigger.) The owners keep the mom & dad together in the flock with the pups so when she comes to our farm, she'll be accustomed to farm life.
