    Hi Crazydog

    I think there is more than one farm girl around here, I'm a city slicker but my mum was a farm girl, and I spend a lot of time on farms too.

    So what kind of dogs do you have, can we see photos of all your fave critters and what do you like to do with your dogs ie long walks on the beach? Me and my hound went this morning and she decided ladies with umbrellas were wrong. Eek. She was sort of right, way too windy for umbrellas today.

    I have a few dogs a mix of Tibetan Mastiffs, Maremmas & my little dog pack which is poodles & ****ty x. The Maremmas are true farm dogs & so are some of the TM's. I have a mini/toy black girl Milly who is the best sheep herder, lol. I am known as that mad dog lady I am sure as it is not unusual to see me walking 4 dogs at a time. I will indrude you to my pride & joy Bubba. I have been VERY unwell & he has been my shadow, he used to be an active farm guardain, now his MY guardain,lol.

    I have friends who used Maremma to keep their sheep, lambs, goats and baby goats (kids) safe. No foxes or stray dogs or humans ever went in that paddock. But that dog did get a bit upset when his favourite sheep went to market - oops.

    My cousins had a Maremma - who thought he was a golden retriever ie had no idea about guarding flocks but loved being all over the humans. And didn't do any protection work.

    I've never seen a dog like Bubba before - wow.

    Yep Maremma's are a Guardain breed but not all Maremma's are Guardains, lol. We have had 4 now & only 2 made good livestock guardains. They can be big goofs but I love them.
    Bubba is a Tibetan Mastiff, I have Bubba, Pearl[black bitch] & Bubba's Bear[black dog], my sister has Jewels Gold[like Bubba] 5mth bitch & my mum has Tori a black & tan bitch. They are a little aloof like a few of the asian breeds but once you have been loved by a TM there is no going back. They are VERY clever dogs & read poeple & situations exspesionly well.
