Falcor

Meet Falcor.
He is a 8 month old (or will be the 10th) Great Pyrenees. A young couple with 2 little girls put him up for adoption. We had several phone conversations over 2 days before we decided to visit Falcor and his family. Of course the minute I saw him I was in love. He gave me lots of kisses and seemed to really like William and I. We made the decision to make him part of the family and he came home with us. He has been a house dog until now. We did keep him inside at night for a few days but he would go to the door and cry. When we took him out he went straight to the goat pen where the girls were and want in. Bella, Tinker, and Hillary were very happy to have a guy to play with. Tinker and Falcor hit it off great. They both are young and have lots of energy so run and play all the time.
Bella and Falcor seem to enjoy just relaxing and talking to each other.
Hillary has been busy guarding the baby goats but when she is on break she and Falcor play. The goats have accepted Falcor as part of the herd and he just loves the baby goats. He has fit right into our family as if he has always been here. Each time I go out to feed or check on the animals I am greeted with 4 big smiles.

Falcor loves being outside with the girls and will come inside for a few minutes and let me spoil him with treats before he is at the door begging to go back out. He almost always has a smile on his face and seems very happy. He always seems to know when I have milk bone crunchies in my pocket. After having a couple he licks his lips and waits to see if I will give him another.
We got Falcor to not only be a part of our family but to breed Bella and Tinker. We would like for each of them to have a liter of puppies. Hopefully being a mommy will take away the desire to get out of the pen and wander the neighborhood. What we didn't know was that Tinker and Falcor would decide after 3 days of playing and running they would skip right to being in a relationship. The deed was done (several times) and Tinker should be pregnant.
In April we should have puppies! Tinker seems to be very happy about that idea.


Welcome to the family Falcor and congratulations to you and Tinker!

As for Precious and her babies. They are doing great. This is the longest any animal has gone without a name around here. I just can't decide what seems to suit the twins. I am going to think on it tonight and see if I can have them named by tomorrow.

I love your animals! It looks like Falcor is very lucky to have found a lovely home! My Aunt had 2 goats when I was growing up, they where always so fun and full of personality! I look forward to following your blog! Have a wonderful week!

I was never one to care very much for large breed dogs until last year when we got our GPs from a neighbor down the road. I am in love. They are big cuddly white bears. Ours let us wallow all over them. Plus I like the fact they do not lick me.

Typical male eh? :)

I hope all goes well with the pregnancy and that you soon find a name for the twins.

It's -30 here this morning, I wish I could send some cold and snow your way!!

For the person wanting to know about genetics and my breeding the dogs but wouldn't use their name. I don't breed before knowing genetics. I have all Falcor's paperwork and I also have Vet reports on Bella and Tinker. Want to ask a question be brave and use your name and ask nicely. No reason to be nasty.
