Interruption By Puppy!

And now, instead of the “In the Garden” post I was going to do, I had to share puppy pics instead.  I put them up on Facebook and realized I couldn’t not share them here as well.

For those of you who hadn’t heard, this past Saturday was Maryland Sheep & Wool.  Susan, Caroline and I drive all the way up there to meet some friends and partake in the wooliness.  Three hours in the car.  We no sooner got there than Zac called and announced that one of Susan’s Maremmas, Lucy, had just had a litter of 7 puppies.  Needless to say we did not stay in Maryland very long.  Which is why I have next to no pictures of the event to post here.

Instead I have adorable puppies to show you:

Maremmas are a livestock guard dog breed that hails from the Maremma region of Tuscany in Italy.  They are big, friendly working dogs that live their whole lives with the livestock they guard.

The best news?

We got to reserve one for us!!!!

I cannot tell you how absolutely thrilled I am and how excited we all are.

Especially the chickens.  They’ll have a full time guardian!

  1. I hope the puppy doesn’t take after it’s chicken eating mama. They’re so cute it is hard to believe they could be capable of such a thing.
