This dog just keeps growing. When he stands on his hind legs, his nose touches my chin.

Haha, three..

no peppercorn, I have 5, I had gotten down to 3 which is very small for me.. and have added in two to bring me to 5.. so I have my old gal who is most likely coming into her last winter, then I have my momma's little tiny house dog for the past couple years as she was no longer able to look after her.. then I have my prime aged fully active trained sheep dog that does the farm/sheep flock work.. then my two up and coming pups.. one who is proving that doing farm chores and hunting (duck/goose) is his thing and my other is the natural guard dog and working with livestock dog as well as got a nose on him already that has him, flushing birds, rabbits, and hunting rats and mice already..

My mom's little girl is also quite old and she has her good days and her poor days and a very fluffy heated bed for old bones.. when the younger pups arrived, my oldest farm girl.. went.. good and just retired herself.. I am beyond grateful to have the mature trained farm dog to help train up the pups.. while I have to do training.. the amount of training the dogs do between themselves is huge.. I have watched her tell of the pup for not working proper in the pasture and she can correct him far faster then I can..

Also since that big deep woof-woof-woof has arrived, I can see the change in the trail that the local coy-wolves has changed, they are swinging out wider around the farm fenced line.. love seeing that pattern change..

I do a good amount of raw (they can get things that the farm produces, like heads, feet, and bits and bobs at butcher time and lots of meaty bones, plus extra eggs/milk at times of the year) they get a lot of squash/potato's and other cooked root veggies, plus they eat cooked grains (gruel).. they do not eat a lot of "dog food per say" but they do eat seasonally, and I add to the gardens for them lol

I have a rabbit raising program just to help feed the dogs :)


but the new pups are larger then I normally have, I tend to have smaller 30 pounds or under sheep dogs and mom's is like 8 pound little house dog.. its been a while since I was feeding my 90 plus pound lab..

If I had to pay for a good quality food at the stores these days, I am not sure I could afford more then one or two.. thankfully the farm produces lots and lots of different food in different ways that the hounds love.. bless them for the omnivores they are..

Just a 90 pound lab, oh, you have a small one, how cute . Mine is 110 pounds last time she was weighed. Its been 7 or more years since I have been able to lift her into the tub for a bath. I was hoping this new adopted pup I got was going to be a smaller dog but it is on course to be a large (er) one, such is life, I expect he is off warranty now so I cant return him. Large or small, they are interesting characters, regardless.

C5 , I remember often said he didnt trust a man with a moustache. I chuckled when I read that because I have always been suspicious of a man who dosnt have a dog. ( shows a lack of permanence, patience, and a inability to care for something other than ones self, or so I have thought). Just my rule of thumb. Exceptions do apply, few though.

I too feed (now), little store bought food to my dogs. The salt (for one, in the dry food) content is just to high. Way to high.

My new dog after I found he used my down stairs sofa as a chew toy. I can discern no guilt in his facial expression.
