Fanny Mae aka Lisa
Our new livestock guard dog Fanny is growing way too fast. Only 3 months old and she is as large as our 9 month old Border Collie mix Freddie. Our two dogs are like night and day, Oscar and Felix, Starskey and Hutch, Frick and Frack. (3rd cousins of my hillbilly mother if I recall.) When Fanny wants your attention she lightly puts a paw on our leg. When Freddie wants your time he jumps up on your shoulder and sticks his tongue in your ear. If Fanny is playful she lopes gently down the barn aisle. If Freddie is playful he chases the ducks and guinea hens and chickens into a circle so tight only their heads can move. Then he repeats this action over and over and over. She sleeps peacefully between two calves. Freddie has never been seen asleep.
How can two farm creatures be so different and get along so well. ?
P.S. Our granddaughter has to rename every animal we have, its just her thing. So next time you see Allana be sure to refer to the new puppy as "Lisa". Its just easier that way.
