More than fireworks went off on the Fourth of July here at the farm. Dora, our purebred Great Pyrenees Livestock Guardian Dog had a litter of pups. All the pups have unique markings so we'll be able to tell them apart.


  1. I first encoutered Great Pyrenees a few years ago in Montana and have wanted one ever since. How many?

  2. It's so hard to picture those adorable little pups become big, big dogs. But at least they'll be beautiful big, big dogs if Mom's any indication.

  3. Congratulations, Dora & Jefe! And also to all the humans at the farm!!! Chief & Ranger cannot wait to meet their newest set of siblings!!

    Hugs from New Jersey,
    Robbin & Kerry, owned by Chief & Ranger (born of Dora & Jefe in 2005)
