Well, I'm new here. My past includes having done lotsa canning, gardening and having run an Angora goat farm for about 5 years. LOVE Great Pyreneese dogs, had 8 of them at one time when I had the goats, but my friends have all been laid to rest now. Now I have 2 good dogs that are 1/2 Pyr and 1/2 German Shepard....a bit more aggressive and serve better as protection, for me, not goats! Enjoy foraging for wild edible and medicinal plants and tanning hides and making useful items from them..... Glad I found you all!! PS The avitar is what my ****zu used to look like. She was a WONDER DOG too! Yeah, I know that's not spelled right!
