Sunday Afternoon Dog Blogging: Guest Blogger Edition

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

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.

    What breed of dog? How many dogs do you have? Are these the 4th or 5th that you have posted?

    Beautiful dogs. I have great respect for working dogs.

    I’m sorry, I meant to include the breed in the text; they’re a Great Pyrenees/Commodore mix. We have five dogs in all; I posted these two together because they look so much alike and are rarely apart anyway.

    Ohh, Great Pyrenees…..those are big dogs. I will need to look up Commodore…..I am not familar with that breed. Very cute pictures. Makes me wonder what my dogs would do if they saw a Llama…….

    They look like my alleged JRT who I think is really a Serta Counting Sheep with black spots.

    Komondor mixes? That’s unusual. Do you shave them because their coats would cord like the Komondor otherwise? (For those who don’t know, Komondor are like large white pulik, one of the corded breeds.)
