Holy cow!  I've clearly been falling behind! Since you asked for updates, here they are:

Zena the Former Police Dog . . .

 . . . still lives with a delightful little old lady.  She sleeps beside her bed, under the air conditioner. She is getting the beginnings of cataracts herself but is doing fine otherwise. They are wonderful companions for each other.  Other Half hasn't visited Zena for fear of confusing the dog.  He went to visit her daughter to get an update and Zena continues to be a very loved member of the family. That was a good match.


Marshal the Anatolian Shepherd Puppy . . .

. . . is the baby Livestock Guardian Dog who moved in with Dear Friend last Spring. He now has his own flock of sheep and has grown into a massive puppy.  He is good with the sheep but still plays a little rough sometimes. He is becoming an excellent livestock guardian dog with a very big bark. I'll have to go over and get you some more recent pictures.

Ruby the Border Collie . . .

. . . is my puppy's littermate.  Like Marshal, she has her own sheep (Marshal's sheep!) and has developed into a crackin' nice working dog.  (She listens better than her brother who is just now discovering that there is no "I" in the word "teamwork.")

Stone the Belgian Tervuren . . .

 . . . continues to be my mother's constant companion. Stone has chewed up a cell phone and at least one purse. He couldn't be more loved.

And last but not least -  Briar!


Hellooooooo??!!!  I said "and last but not least - Briar!"


"Oh! Let me find her!"

 "There she is!"

"Wait!  That's me!"

Briar continues to be my beloved goofball.  She has grown into a hairy mountain who jumps fences like a gazelle.  Fortunately she stays on the property. 

The neighbors are a bit annoyed at her 6:45 am wake-up barking every morning but we have tracked it down to horseback riders with 2 dogs that rise early to beat the heat and jog down our road. There isn't much I can do about that.  Briar is a guard dog. Guard dogs bark.

Since I got Briar I haven't lost any livestock to predators.  She is good at her job. I sleep well at night knowing that she's on duty.  She does sneak through the doggy door sometimes to sleep inside the air conditioning during the middle of the day. It is summer in Texas. Who can blame her?

COOL!! I'm glad to hear the Stone is doing so well. It can be hard for Northern boy to acclimate to the Deep South. The language barrier can be tough! LOL

Wonderful! Thanks so much for the update. Real dog lovers are the ones that realize cell phones and purses don't compare to the love of a good dog!!! At least that is what I tell myself whenever I pick up damaged goods around my house.....

I wish mine would learn Briar's trick! (the staying on home property part) My yellow lab limped home yesterday, after being missing overnight with a snare trap around her neck. Maybe she'll stay home instead of going gallivanting now?

Ohmygosh! Holly! Poor girl! I hope Faith stays home now!

Hey! You can always update that the side dishes (Malibu Ken, Ricearoni, Macaroni, and Magellan) are doing well in Beautiful Buda, Texas. You go right ahead and post those pictures of the little boys and their toys! I know, they aren't your boys anymore, but they will be lifetime alumni of the Forensic Farm :^}
