Meet the chief

After reading your comments on my last post about sexy shepherds and pinup boys, I thought it was time to introduce you to the rest of the talent on the farm.

Meet Flossy, our Pyrenean sheepdog extraordinaire. I had considered offering a free trip to the Alps to anyone showing physical proof that they could beat her at this:

Flossy, Pyrenean sheepdog

But on second thoughts, I know that there are probably a lot of agile folks out there who would be only too happy to give me a demonstration of how they wash their eyeballs every morning before breakfast.

For those of you who don’t know her, Flossy doubles up as a guard dog and chief keeper of la bergerie.  When she’s not protecting our front door, she plays an important role in the sheep barn, where she helps the shepherd and where they both work extremely hard, without a moment’s respite, all hours of the day.

 In front of the barn

Or so I’m told.

    Wow, I guess he doesn’t need to use a kleenex with a talent like that. =)

    Had a light lunch today of golden delicious apples (domestic, Washington state – sorry!) and morbier. They go so well together! And some nice, grainy whole wheat crackers / biscuits / craquelins (or is that only Canadian French?) and thought of you. A yummy paté de campagne would have gone along nicely, and I wondered: surely there are some savory lamb patés out there, aren’t there? Droolingly yours…

    That’s one cute puppy!

  6. My Australian Shepherd and I work sheep for “fun”. Unless you have a working dog, it’s hard to imagine how useful and necessary they are.

    Hope your brochure sells many sheep for you! And that you have a very profitable year!
