Be Afraid, Be VERY Afraid....

Predators, thieves, stalkers, "bad guys" in general

"SABLE" is coming to live in the Bluff Country!

This humoungoues giant of ferocious protectiveness will be watching over all of us and keeping us safe.  Sable is a Great Pyre / Burmese Mountain Dog cross.  Her momma is a Great Pyre (with perhaps a bit of GSD thrown in ) and daddy's a BMD.  What an awesome cross is that?

The sheep are VERY excited...

"Hey.  Did you hear?  Mom's getting another dog!"

"Gee, that IS exciting."

"There's never a dull moment here in the Bluff Country."

"I hear she's gonna be a  BIG  girl!"

"I suppose we're gonna have to train her..."

DREAM says...

"I wonder if she eats chickens???"

I'm afraid NOT, Dreamer!


  1. It was a good thought Dreamer...and you know, sometimes puppies make bad choices ;-).

    That is one ferocious beast of a dog?


  3. What a cute pup! How soon is she coming your way?

  4. Oh my, I should have guessed! But I didn't and Im actually a little shocked! You're house is going to be insane! But im sure insanely filled with love and puppy kisses, congratulations :)

  5. Oh, how cute! Oh, how CUTE! She's adorable! And what a fierce guard puppy! I'll bet she does that puppy-squirm thing when you try to hold her in your arms.

    Love the first photo and your humor, Nancy. Made me smile on a Friday evening after a full weary, week.

  7. Oh, boy!!!! A puppy!!!! Fun, fun, fun! Want my "Fur Farm" sign?

  8. There is nothing like the love of a big dog and drool on the floor and walls to make a house complete:) Can't wait to see future pictures!!

  9. I'm hoping that Sable will be here in a couple of weeks. She's living in Tennesee right now and her breeder and I are trying to work out some low cost transportation. Fortunately, Sable herself was free! She's the biggest of all the girls in her litter. JUST what I want ~ a BIG, big dog.

    Oh, and Kristi ~ I'm sure that my girl won't drool...

    Did anyone notice the "fleece" on that puppy? I can imagine Nancy spinning her own dog fur yarn in the near future.

  11. OMG!!! Sable is a cutie!! She has a pretty serious look on her face in the those photos, I'd say she is going to take her job just as seriously. Hopefully none of your chickens will get out of line!! :P

  12. Congratulations on your new family member! I love my Bernese Mt. Dog/Golden retriever cross. Those Berners make very special pets. I'm hoping to visit all your animals soon and finally meet you in person. Maybe I can convince my mom to bring me over the next time I visit.

  13. Just love the pup! She's adorable- and hopefully she'll be formidable predator deterrent. Nice "fleece", too!

  14. Oh what a great face. How exciting for you Nancy. How soon until she arrives?

  15. I am frantically working on arrangements to get Sable here ASAP! It may come down to me renting a car (neither of my vehichles could make a drive over one hundred miles!) and meeting her breeder half way! I wonder what half way between SE Minnesota and Tennesee is...

    Oh, I WILL be spinning that fluff! I've got a bag of Bella's that I'm saving as well. They should be quite lovely knit up in stripes or a mosiac pattern.

  16. Oh wow, look at that pup! She won't be small and cuddly for long though, I hope she grows up to be a good protector for you... but a cuddly big protector!

  17. Hey Friend! You'll soon have as many dogs as me ... :-). Enjoy your new puppy.


  18. Sable is beautiful. I hope it works out for you to get her picked up. She should make an impressive addition to the farm, and be a fine watchdog for you. Looks alone is sometimes all it takes. I'm sorry to hear of your loss of Candy and your job. So sorry. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this time and I hope things work out even better than they were in regards to your job.

  19. Hi Nancy,

    Your puppy is adorable. Have you figured out how to get her yet? If not, I live just south of Eau Claire, WI. I could meet you around LaCrosse somewhere and we could meet the breeder halfway somewhere in southern Iowa. Oh, I have talked to you a couple of times the last couple of years at Sheep and Wool Festival in Jefferson so I am not a complete stranger, if you were wondering. Yikes! I could do a Thursday or a Friday or even weekends. Just wanted to know if I could help out in some way. My thoughts and prayers are with you on the loss of your job.
