Okay, I think I pushed the right button... it will be one mutt's mug (we THINK it is a dog), and one smiling Briard (natural eared) in his 'house'.

How'd you guess? Yes, big shaggy is my preference. Doesn't mean there are not some other dogs that appeal to me, but when the big shaggy ones are really BAD, I look at them and sigh, and think, well, okay, at least they are cute.

Not that mine are bad. Mine are perfect angels, as you can see from the first pic. The puppy had taken the papers not from the 'forbidden recycling bin' but off the coffee table... I had not said that was forbidden... yet. She is a very literal pup. Not once did she take anything from the bin, which is on the floor, after I told her that's a no. She finds every other paper in the house, though.

I might as well add it here, but my dogs are farm dogs.

I raise cattle (beef and dairy), sheep, pigs, chickens for food and keep a few horses and a donkey for 'entertainment'?
I describe my operation as 'custom meat grower', extremely small scale. I grow the crosses and types I most like to eat, fed, vetted, treated the way I think is right. I eat meat, so do my dogs.

I did not grow up on a farm/ranch, so I had to learn it, but I have great neighbors who are wonderful teachers. In the US agricultural producers are often maligned, and I have to admit I am tired of it. I try to show the ranch to as many people as I can (although that is a bio security nightmare) and often change a few negative minds.
I am against organic raising of animals, (I think it is cruelty and neglect) since I prefer to treat an infection, infestation, or prevent parasites from eating or torturing my future dinner. I treat my dogs the same way (vaccinated, wormed, on preventatives for heartworms and flea/ticks).

The dogs live in the house, sleep with us, have a doggie door to a fenced yard, and come along on chores twice a day, and for walks when the weather is nice another two times a day. They are not always perfectly groomed, but strike me as a happy bunch. They all learned to get along with the farm animals, and some were city dogs for starters.
They help according to their aptitudes: Hunt rodents, herd sheep or cattle, entertain donkey, eat apples, (road apples too).

That sounds great. I wish I could afford to own a farm. Your dogs sound like they have it made.

I'd like to think so, but currently one is a teenage pup... I think she want's a cell phone

I get the occasional 'whatever' from her... But she will get over it.
