I never have really been a “dog person.” I like animals with a job. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve done the whole hamsters, parakeets, and fish thing, but they don’t even slightly compare to something that provides you with eggs 🐓. Something that provides you with protection 🐕. Something that gives you with mouse control 🐈. I like animals, and I like dogs, just not in my face. But, I can assure you that Bobbi, our pure bred Maremma, fits the bill. She is exactly what I want; a dog with a job. A guardian of our chickens, property, and family. A dog that loves you, but can keep to herself and still be content. A dog that is faithful and hard working.
I think every homestead needs a Bobbi ☺️
