Farm Pets


We can’t have a farm without dogs!!!



Sailor (Saltydogs Come Sail Away)

After we lost our collie Luna, we found a wonderful breeder of Golden Retrievers nearby.  Sailor came to live with us at ten weeks old.  She is a light golden color and has all the popular traits of the Golden.  She loves all people and all dogs and really wants to play with the cats, but of course, that is not allowed or appreciated.

   Shelton aka Sheldon

When we lost Teddy Bear, Luna was depressed, and we were too.  So we went back to Big Fluffy Dog Rescue to see if they had another Great Pyrenees mix available.  I had admired a collie/Pyr mix that they had online, but he was already adopted, so they found me another similar dog, named Shelton.  Big Fluffy had sprung him from an Alabama shelter and he was in their kennel in Tennessee.  He rode the transport to Connecticut and we picked him up from there.  Shelton is a big boy who is very affectionate, likes other dogs, ignores the cats and is afraid of the alpacas.  After looking at him for awhile, we doubted that he had much Great Pyrenees in him, but did think he must have some big dog in there to make him so long and tall.  He also moved like a German Shepherd, but had the sable and white colors of a collie.  DNA said he was 37.5% Great Pyrenees, 37.5% German Shepherd Dog and 25% a mixture of herding dog breeds.  He’s one sweet boy and Luna is much happier with him, though she makes it clear she’s the alpha dog.
