the joys of one month old LGD puppies

Their eyes have been open for two weeks, they've been eating real food for one and they are curious about their surroundings every minute they are awake. Mara and Charlie's litter of ten puppies are chubby plops of contentment - nursing when they can, batting each other with clumsy paws and sleeping hard.  We visit them often and soak up the sweet smell of puppy breath.  Their personalities are emerging and it's been fun to name them.  Introducing...the boys Jake the Third, George, Dash

the girls Iris, Misty, Season and Nature

and more girls Fury, Izle and Tempest (with a cameo by Iris on the left)

After Memorial Day, we will be transitioning the puppies to their new, loving farm homes.  Several have already been spoken for and we'll be finding great farms for the others to protect in the coming weeks.  We are excited to see them grow and learn to guard and protect as their parents do.  Mara and Charlie, both Great Pyrenees, have been invaluable to our farm as Livestock Guardian Dogs.
