She’s protected her family from a burglar, fought off a rattlesnake, now she’s apparently homeschooling during quarantine❤️ Thank you for the adorable photos Dominique!

The Benefits of Being Small

You can fit into places the teenagers can’t, as Dixie demonstrates in this video. Happy Sunday🙂

Even when she’s wet and full of mud she’s a beauty❤️

Best grin ever!
It’s time to put the kiddie pools out!

I keep telling them….

They could get out with the pack and livestock earlier if they’d quit messing around and eat🙄 Opie is the only one who listens.

Dixie and Harley stomping each other while Opie goes for the food…

Keeping the peace….

Observing pack dynamics is one of my favorite things to do, and sometimes I even get video. Cabo, with a very beat up muzzle from an encounter with a badger several days ago is not in the mood for Harley’s advances. Faith and Nellie very gently put themselves between dad and pup and nudge Cabo away while Marcia and Rylie move Harley in the other direction….problem solved!


Some videos of Hillbillies in their natural habitat…

Hillbillies Week 6.5

Here they are….everyone has doubled in weight over the past two weeks, they grow so fast….I don’t think I’ve seen a more confident litter of puppies! They’ve been out with the sheep, pigs, poultry and other pack members and while some of the older puppies were a little over rambunctious with the new kids initially, Marcia made it very clear that was not acceptable behavior and things have calmed down. I’ll be calling my buyers over the next week and discussing the individual puppies characteristics, and personality traits, and will be posting several videos of puppies interacting with the livestock and pack members. For now, here are individual shots taken this afternoon of each puppy.


Hillbillies Week 5

This was a busy week for everyone! Puppies moved outside and humans tore down and replaced fencing, removed some old dead trees, trimmed hooves and banded the last of the lambs. No individual photos this week but here’s a couple of photos of the older dogs checking out the new babies and a a cute video. See you next week!

The Hillbillies are 4 weeks old!

They’re growing like weeds and are so cute! They just had lunch so their faces might be a little wet from the pre photo shoot face washings. Each photo has name, collar color and weight as of today…. there’s also a pretty cute video, enjoy!

Ymir and Bella are really growing up fast!

And what a couple of beauties they are! These almost yearling pups have been on their own guarding our pregnant does for the past two months and are doing a spectacular job. I’m really looking forward to kidding in March, even if we are having some very interesting weather fluctuations (these photos were taken one day after the video!) Thank you Natasha Prudnik and Laura Underwood for two fabulous young dogs❤️
