Jeni ~ Our 'expecting' Great Pyrenees

This is Beechtrees 'Jeni'
The first 2 photos were taken this afternoon out in the pasture. She's got about 3 1/2 more weeks before she is due, and she is starting to slow up just a bit, and her appetite is increasing.
Jeni is out of Zora's 3rd litter, sired by our male 'Dan'.
(*Dan is pictured at the top of this blog page, guarding the Bluefaced Leicester ewe lambs)

This photo of Jeni was taken on the day that I picked her up after her stay with the owners of 'Lefty'. Lefty is the sire of this upcoming litter. (* see 'Lefty's photos in a previous post)

Raven's Education

At the tender age of 13 weeks, Raven is learning about the various varmints she will be required to dispatch, such as skunks, fox, and raccoon.

Here she is learning a very important lesson. That if the humans are too busy, or if there happens to be a power failure, she now knows how to do the dishes. Yum!
