Judah is in the House

Actually, he's in the pasture. Our Livestock Guardian Dog, Judah, has come home. So far today, he has put the sheep in their place (and they are terrified of him), and he's caught a really good nap near the hay feeder where it's soft and shady. Off to a great start.

Shadrach is the leader of the fraidy-sheep pack, and he hasn't taken his eyes off of the big white dog. Tonight I get to figure out how to get everyone fed without anyone getting too upset. They have about a day and a half to buddy up, before the rain and cold hit again.

Judah is a really mellow and agreeable dog. He gave foster mom, Susie, a hug goodbye before he hopped in the back seat of the pickup and we headed home.

My new friend Larry was already digging post holes when Judah and I arrived. The fence project is off and running.

Tomorrow, fun with Quikcrete.

  4. Awww! Judah is so pretty, and hard working to boot. Kinda like our husbands. Guess he's a keeper. I suspect he and the sheep will get to become good friends.

  5. Oh, yay!! I hope the sheep get used to him; he looks like he is already taking good care of guarding the pasture!

  6. I like the way Judah is focusing on watching for trouble and letting the sheep have their own space. That coyote will have a big ole surprise if he comes around again. Glad to see that post hole digger on the job, too! Blessings to all, AuntiE

    I am an official member of the Judah fan club! I am so glad that you have been able to welcome such a lovely new creature into your flock. I hope that you keep on taking lots of pictures of him as he settles in; I can't get enough!

  10. Thanks so much for the great welcome for Judah, everybody! After our "settling in" period, I'll be able to go in there and get lots of good pictures. Right now, I'm trying to give the sheep and their keeper a chance to bond together. They will do that best if I stay on the periphery for a while. It's really hard, because he's such a lover, but all the more reason to let him focus on his sheep.
