And I don't like making an "I'm new post" so I figured I might as well get it over with.
hmmmmm I guess I'm basicly an animal slave but aren't all pet owners! lol So I'm a slave to three dogs Skye(GSD), Polar and Jack(brother and sister Great Pyrenees pups). Skye is our house/pet/thinks she human dog. Jack and Polar are being raised as Livestock Guardian dogs. Does anyone on here have LGD's. This is totally new to us but we got into a study on it ran by CMU to see if they will be effective against the Wolf problems in our area.
Besides the dogs that own me, I also have 3 horses owners(all QH), Star, Coal and Jazz. Jazz is bred for a 2006 foal, I'm hoping for a little filly that looks and acts like mama and is the color and height of daddy. Keep your fingers crossed, 1.5 months and counting.
We have one house cat and a few barn cats and 15 head of cattle(three more cows due). The newest of which are Thatcher and Twister(who are being raised with Jack and Polar) and then Lil'Bit, Flash and Spike. I have to get new photos of Jack and Polar I can't believe how fast they are growing! At 4 months they are almost as tall as my GSD.
As you can tell I would rather talk about the furry ones then myself so I'll tell ya, I have a degree in ele. teaching but currently are slaving away at the family business while my brother is over seas(never thought the family would have to go through that). I'll tell ya I'm female but I'm not giving you my age! lol A girl has to keep something secret. lol

Hi Stormie! Welcome to the board even thought you are trying to cause me trouble lol. The pictures I posted are mine but if you don't believe me that is fine. Welcome to the board and enjoy. There is alot of good advice here. I thought you were more of a horse person lol. Welcome! Good Bye Stormie!
hi welcome to TP. i used to have a great pyrenees named princess and currently am owned by two anatolian shepherds. they are not used as livestock guardians though. they are strictly family companions. here are their pics on dogster. do you have any pics of yours ?
Photos, O' you shouldn't ask me for photos! I have tons of them, no new ones of the pups yet just from last month. I'll post some tonight if I get the time. It's not easy to get photos of them. All of the shots turn out looking like a huge blurry ball of fur. They don't slow down at all.
I answered you more on the other topic, I'm dragging it on here.
I'm an animal person, not just horses. While I don't really care for the cows but thats because "I" and always the one that mad mamma cows pick to go after! I think Horses and Dogs are my favorite, I can't see myself without either. Cats I could probable live without and it will be a long time before I can replace my old cat that I lost just over a year ago(well closer to 1.5yrs). We have Cassie and I couldn't part with her but it's not the same as having Bootsie.
Welcome to TP. I don't have pics but once I get with the times and buy a digital you better believe everyone will be bombarded with them :) I am a picture person. I have 2 dogs a beagle and a lab mix and 2 kittens and 3 fishies. Have fun here, I know lately it has been exciting :)
Hi Stormie! When you said I broke the law do you meen when I worked for PETA? I am not lying about my pictures but if you think so that is ok. I was just wondering what you were talking about when you said I broke the law. Thanks! Good Bye Stormie!
Do the photos have to be on Dogster to post them here? I have a few on photobucket.
Normally I would tell a person to conact me personally but in this case, don't. I said I'm not getting into it here on this topic. You know what I'm talking about and you know I have the proof and I'm NOT going to fight with you about it here.
omg they are all beautiful !!!! i am so jealous. i want another pyr pup so bad. unfortunately with the aggressive nature of the foster dog we have i cannot bring any new animal in to the house as long as she is with us. pyrmom has pyrs and roxystar is getting a pyr pup this week, today or tomorrow i believe. so you are in good company here wiht your pyrs.
stormie...yes..photobucket is a good one to post and some use the kodac gallery too...you dont have to use dogster.and you dont have to answer any posts either from PJ or any one..if you dont want to...What other forums do you go to...obviously the hosrse one that you mentioned that you know PJ from...but any others? Most people who are here have dogs or some have dogs and cats and very few have horses...So, we would all like to hear about your animals..and the cattle..are they for meat or milk? I guess you cant let your self get too attached to a meat steer...but how do you handle that...if you dont mind me asking? I cant say as I could do it..unless i grew up with it mind you...I would end up naming it and then it is hard to eat a named pet..But..if you have to to survive that is different..As when I was younger my Mother raised (hold your ears...) white flemish giants...yes Rabbits for meat..and my brother and I just talked about this last week how often we had "chicken" ...lol..now we know it was rabbit. It is hard when your young and have to do things..so if that is the case..i understand. Any way...can you tell how the pets and livestock things go...Thanks..and Welcome again... oh i amost forgot..what is a LGD? Just curious
