This has absolutely nothing at all to do with weaving but that is ok, right? I have been looking for an LGD for some time now. For those who don't know, an LGD is a livestock guard dog. Last winter my son saw a wolf at two different times near our home. That is too close for comfort. While I think wolves are beautiful animals I wouldn't want one eating one of my little goats. I have two Nigerian Dwarf goats and a Nigora. Kami, the Nigora is a cross between a Nigerian Dwarf and a Angora goat. She is so soft! I am looking forward to spinning her wool.
Max is nine weeks old. He is a Great Pyrenees. He may be little right not but he will get very big. I got to meet his parents and they looked like they are great farm dogs.
I asked some of my friends to help me pick a name. I have had Bear, Snowball and Zamboni offered as suggestions. One of our sons suggested Clifford as in the big red dog. He started out small, too!
Well, here he is! Isn't he just the cutest thing? So far he is doing his job. He hasn't let the goats out of his sight since he got here. Looks like he is starting out on the right foot! Well, um, paw.
