The Post I Promised

When we got Brigg was when we saw Charley and we just had to have her too.

Charley and Brigg bonded on the way home that first day and do everything together. But our puppy family was still "expecting"...

 Thing was, we had already planned a puppy that was on its way to us before any of the others were even thought of. Dilly (my daughter in law) had done an enormous amount of research to find out what type of dog would be really good around the baby and good on a farm. All her research kept leading her to the Mastiff breeds. Looking at mastiffs led her to the discovery of Boerboels... originally bred to be estate dogs in Africa. They are large, loyal, gentle and yet fiercely protective of their owners.

Just what she wanted!

So a much awaited and anticipated puppy was being born and getting her visa and getting ready to travel half way around the world to come live with us. So three weeks after Brigg and Charley came, we got one more puppy!

her name is Hera, after the Greek goddess whose name according to Plato means "love".

and she is

She is the most soulful and loving
creature imaginable.

Just look at that face!

Who wouldnt just fall in to those eyes and then right in to that big heart shining in them?

We call her "Hera - Beara"

our little(?) lioness!

She is unaware of her size and will crawl in your lap if you let her or sometimes even if you dont.

It could have worked out who knows how - getting a dog from Africa sight unseen. But for us it couldnt have worked out better.

Now we have the 3 Musketeers~

Boy do we feel safe!
