When we first bought goats in 2006, we also got two goat dogs; we got rid of the goats because we couldn’t make a profit on them, but the dogs are still here. They’re a brother and sister, named Lassen and Shasta respectively; Shasta’s black mask is nearly continuous, while Lassen’s is broken with a vertical white stripe. They’re quite large now, roughly 50 kg each (though Lassen is slightly taller and longer), but when the first picture was taken they were still pretty teeny; in the second they were about 6 months old, and not much bigger than Caramel yet. The last was taken just after I shaved them for the summer at the beginning of June; as you can see the llama doesn’t quite know what to make of their new look. Alas, he wasn’t nearly as easy to shave as they were; I was sore and bruised for days afterward. The little shed in the background is my chicken coop.
