On Valentine’s Day, we drove out to Pete’s ranch and picked up our new herding dog pup, Valentine. Rena the Akbash and Roo the burro were very anxious to meet the new baby, a bearded/border collie mix.
Jim and his new girl Val had to have an afternoon nap:
Lest anyone think that the puppy is sweet, let’s demonstrate what she’s like when she’s awake:
The big dogs with the herd are blissfully unaware of anything outside their world:
Someone hit a jackrabbit at the end of our driveway, so I retrieved it for Rena, who was very sweet to me for the rest of the day.
This is the handsome jack we saw Sunday morning, on the way to the ranch.
This last one is for Prairie Mary. The red sheep were headed out to the range, so I snapped a few shots before they were loaded.
