Viking Jan 2015 IMG_0635Hello All,

For any of you pups out there not familiar with other four-legged creatures on the planet, here’s me with some cows and a llama! This was my first time meeting them at my raiser’s family farm in Surrey. When I came face to face, I didn’t know what to make of them – are these big dogs or??? The cows, unnamed, were very skittish and I think would have liked to trample me into the mud if my raiser didn’t keep me out of their way – jeez, I just wanted to say ‘hello’?

Reverend, the llama, was quite friendly….and get this, fellow pups-in-Viking Jan 2015 IMG_0642training, this llama has a job too! He protects the farms’ chickens from predators – but instead of guiding the chickens, or taking commands from them, he spits!!!! Yes, he spits at the predators and then threatens them with his size – who knew it’s not just dogs that can be of service…maybe I should keep this network open in case PADS doesn’t work out? Hmmmm…..
