Dugur, our Livestock Guardian Dog or LGD, caught mid-shake…
That is our Dugur dog, he takes his job seriously. Even when he appears to be asleep, if something suspicious happens he is up and going quicker than a flash. Today he is busy patrolling the pasture, keeping the sheep and chickens safe…
Not only is a wonderful Livestock Guardian but a part of the family…
Nurture Photography Challenge – a seasonal photo challenge series chock full of tips and tutorials, inspiring weekly prompts, personal feedback and encouragement. This week’s theme is White/Minimalism.
With 6 working dogs our farm is a busy, bustling place.
This past week has been an interesting one for the dogs. We ended up taking Bellah and Dugur into the vet for their health checks and updates on rabies, etc. Big, tough Dugur is quite the wimp while riding in the van the 15 minutes to the vets office. He quivers and shakes and looks quite pitiful. Then we get to the vets office and he feels the need to pee all over everything IN the building claiming the whole building for himself! They both looked great and Dugur weighed in at 105 lbs! This week Vaka and Frank get the privileged of going on a little van ride. :0)

Psa 30:1 ESV – A Psalm of David. A song at the dedication of the temple. I will extol you, O LORD, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me.
Psa 30:2 ESV – O LORD my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.
Psa 30:3 ESV – O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.
Psa 30:4 ESV – Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name.
Psa 30:5 ESV – For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
Psa 30:6 ESV – As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.”
Psa 30:7 ESV – By your favor, O LORD, you made my mountain stand strong; you hid your face; I was dismayed.
Psa 30:8 ESV – To you, O LORD, I cry, and to the Lord I plead for mercy:
Psa 30:9 ESV – “What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness?
Psa 30:10 ESV – Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me! O LORD, be my helper!”
Psa 30:11 ESV – You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
Psa 30:12 ESV – that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever!

Vaka is an Icelandic word for watch or guard and is also the name of a our new Pyrenees puppy!
Right now the kids fight over who’s turn it is to feed or walk her…it’s always nice to have arguing like that!
We are very excited to have this little girl here and she will hopefully grow into a wonderful watchful guardian of sheep and children.
