Persephone and Onyx  
Persephone is a farm collie that we bought as a herding dog.  She's a good guardian,
and will tree squirrels and raccoons, but she isn't interested in herding.   

Onyx is her daughter
.
A FEW OF OUR  FOSTER DOGS,  AS WELL AS  FUN PHOTOS, and FORMER
FRIENDS
Dolly-  Foster Dane

Dolly knew how  to
stand on her hind
legs and get down
the bread.....from
OFF THE TOP OF
THE FRIDGE!  

We have also
fostered 2 other
Danes,  a female,
and "Ajax"- a male.
Luke
"Ol' Reliable"-  
Dumped Foster Dog
Athena Dressed Up.
Her dignity has
been wounded.
Athena and a Goat
Kid
Charlie Learning to
Read
Freya and Athena
Freya was a beautiful dog that we found
in a culvert as a puppy.  When we
adopted Sarah, though, Freya was
jealous of her and tried to nip her all the
time, so Freya found a home with a
retired couple.
Plato Asleep with
Piddle, the Italian
Greyhound.  I would
have loved to keep
Piddle,  but he was
also a chicken-killer.
He could easily snap
several chickens'
necks in a few
minutes...killing up
to 6 a day.  
Simon - Foster Dog
We almost kept this
big sweetheart.
Athena and Plato  ("Teen and Toe") Playing when they
were young dogs.  Athena "picked out" Toe at the
Rescue and they were like a bonded pair.
"Jackson"    I love poodles and thought a
Standard Poodle would be perfect for us.   
Jackson, however, learned to kill chickens and
chase the livestock for fun and could jump over a
normal fence with no thought.  He actually found a
home with a local farmer. He rides around in the
truck, helps HERD CATTLE and is generally a
man's man dog.
"Claus"
Spaniels are beautiful and I hoped
Sarah could keep this little boy
(pre-Charlie) but Claus, like many
Spaniels, would BITE and he needed an
adult home.
Plato Being Goofy
Thor says,  "Sarah, you need a
kiss!"
Charlie the "Pillow Pet"
Plato is TERRIFIED of
thunderstorms. Here he is
cowering in bed with Possum,
my late cat.
