|Our guard dog, Jackson|
And I had to include a picture of our faithful guard dog, Jackson. Now that we have puppies, Jackson looks old, but he is still a great guardian and a huge asset to the farm!
A week or so ago, Mike and I were in bed, almost asleep when all of a sudden I heard a scream that sounded like a woman wailing. With wide eyes I said, "What in the world was that!" Then all the dogs started barking like crazy. We both flew out of bed and went running to the back door. Then we heard it...the howl of a coyote. We hear coyotes often, but this one was in the back very close to the house. I wish I had thought to grab the camera and video the scene. It was pretty exciting! I stood at the back door listening while Mike went for the shot gun. Then pretty soon Em was startled awake and showed up at the back door asking what was going on. The puppies were penned up, so all they could do was bark, but Jackson was out in the slough keeping the coyotes at bay. As Em and I listened, I said, "I love Pyrenees!" I wish we had 50 of them...but that would be too much grooming! :) Well, Mike scared them off, but didn't get a shot at them.
Until next time....just another exciting day on the farm! :)
