Big Galoots, Fuzzy Ottomans

Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:

May 12th 2007

Thick straw to sleep in, a brother to play with and laying in the snow.

Coyotes! We haven't seen any, but we hear them on the hill near our home.

Favorite Toy:
A big blue Jolly Ball. Sticks in their field, They lost their nylabones somewhere in the straw.

Favorite Food:
Any, but they love bully sticks to chew on. They get Eagle Pack Large Breed dry food.

Favorite Walk:
Around their fenced pasture. They are not leash-trained and almost never leave the pasture. When cars drive by (right next to their pasture) they chase the cars by running alongside, inside their fence.

Best Tricks:
Escaping from our barn by pushing on the large sliding door! We let them roam free (inside the fence) after their second barn escape the next night.

Arrival Story:
These are the first dogs we have bought from a breeder (the others are all rescues), our first working dogs and our first outdoor dogs. They will live in our barn and guard our alpacas.

Bukka and Josh came from a breeder in Nebraska. My husband met her in Cheyenne (WY), the halfway point, and drove them home last night.

Forums Motto:
Watcha got? I'll guard it!

Blues connection:
Bukka (pronounced "Book a") White was a Delta Blues musician, possibly related to BB King. Josh White was a Blues songster/performer.

He's a bit larger and less dominant. We cannot pet him in front of Josh, because Josh will attack him. Bukka is an "old soul " and he looks it.

He's smaller and was more shy, but he warmed up very quickly. He dominates Bukka and wants to eat ALL the food.

They are badger colored (with brown markings), not pure white like some Great Pyrs. Bukka's markings are scattered, but Josh has a big spot on his side.

Josh's estimated weight:
100 p0unds

Bukka's estimated weight:
110 pounds

Wishing it would snow again

Dad took a picture of me with Cleo the cat curled up on me while I was asleep on the ground. I tried to wake up and shake her off but he got them. He is threatening to post it as well. My credibility will be shot!! Dogsters, what am I to do????

Afraid the coyotes will laugh at me.


I think he's nuts... but I like it!

Dad and I have this new game we play when he comes into the girl's pen. We stop, look at each other, he crouches down then we bound towards each other then I run around a couple of hay troughs. We do this a couple of times then he scratches my ears then my butt ( I like my butt scratched!), then my chest and tells me how good a boy I am. Not sure if he's feelin' ok, but I enjoy it. Maybe it's because I have been a good boy. HMMM. Being good=Daddy playing with me and giving me attention. I hope I can keep this up!
