Meet the Pups

We can’t forget the Pups.

What would any homestead be without the protectors of the flock.  These dogs are more than just the support crew they’re friends and family.

 

 Lilly

Lilly

Lilly is the OG farm dog.  We’ve had Lilly since before we ever dreamed that we would have chickens.  My love for this dog burns with the intensity of a thousand suns.  Which sounds dramatic, but it’s not.  She has been here with me through three pregnancies on bedrest and she IS my support system and best friend. She is a hairless and doesn’t do well in the cold…or the sun for that matter.  She has awful genetics and terrible joints, but she is the best bed warmer around.  Lilly is the manager of the farm dogs union.

Rhaegar

Rhaegar

Is a new addition to our team.  He will be the protector of the flock.  Even as young as he is he takes his job very seriously.  He doesn’t chase after the chickens.  He’s very vigilant and spends most of his time watching them.  He is expected to be a rather big boy and we are looking forward to the level of protection that he brings us and out flock.  Rhaegar is the muscle to Lilly management.
