Feline



Feline, is our guardian dog for the sheep. She lives with them, grew up with them and in theory mostly thinks of herself as a sheep and thus wants to protect her flock. She came to us as a puppy and grew with amazing speed into a big fluffy thing that moves in a rather dorky fashion. On both pictures she is barking at me, doing her job, for she does not know me very well (me being the gardener). She is a Great Pyrenees also known as patou (Belle from Belle et Sebastien is a patou). The other day I saw her carry a newborn lamm in her mouth as a cat might do with a kitten and at first thought she ate it, but she just moved for the flock had moved away and it was a little bit isolated.
