    Smile I met 2 new Breeds today.

    As you guys probably know, i deal with all sorts of dogs everyday when i invade thier territory's.

    But today was a bit diffrent because i met 4 new dogs of 2 diffrent breeds.....one i need some help with too...but first..

    2 Wiemaraner's.......Must say they where awsome dogs !!! Eyes look a bit diffrent with thier greyish look but these 2, a male and female where so friendly and just well mannered dogs. I was instantly greeted like a long lost friend...even though thier owners where not home !!
    After some big cuddles and lotsa pats i was offered a tennis ball which i gladly threw for them. The ball hit a concrete edge and flew up in the air which was instantly snatched up and bought back. Man...these dogs can jump !!
    They where very lean.....is that the norm for these guys ?
    They kinda reminded me of a skinnier creamy Ridgeback (without the ridge of course!)
    I'm glad to have 2 new friends on my run !!


    Now the other 2 i dont know what they are called...by name or species...but i have heard of them before because of what they where doing.
    They where on a farm and there where 2 paddocks near the house that had about say 20 Goats in each and low and behold ...if ya looked close enough there where these 2 big white dogs...one in each paddock sitting right in amongst the goats. One got up to get a better look at us and then went back to his herd (?)...is that what a lot of goats are called ?? anyway they where obviously in there to protect these goats and they fitted in really well.. Blending in actually. I can imagine the surprise a fox would get if he messed with these goats
    Can anyone let me know whaat these dogs might be ???
    They where withish/creamish coloured and kinda like bigger versions of a Golden Retriever. Hopefully thier owner/farmer will be home next time so i can ask him about them.

    The 2nd breed by the sounds of it, is a Maremma Sean....they are used as watchdogs to guard over livestock usually... Nice looking dogs, but not a fan of Weiremanas (not sure of spelling).

    To be honest O.M.... i was not a fan of thier 'look' either, but after these 2 today i had to change my mind.
    Kinda like mangos...as a kid i hated Mangos...until i actually ate 1...then i was hooked.

    Yep thats the dog i saw today !!!

    Thanks Jadie. They blended in well with the goats when they where lying down in the grass......not so much when they stood up though !!! LOL.
    I can imagine they'd give a fox a good hiding !! We get a lot of foxes around here. I'm surprised more farmers around here dont use them.

    Yeah I've seen quite a few foxes squished on the side of the road and one run across in front of me! lol they are everywhere... babies are cute as a button but such a pest!
