Sweet Mama

Sadie, our youngest of the Anatolian Shepherds, just turned 10 months old.  She has taken on a little kid who was born prematurely on Saturday.  The doe had abandoned a set of twins as they were born in the night.  The smallest twin never could hold body temperature and died within the first day.  The other little fellow is hanging on and has become Sadie's project.


  1. unbelievably sweet.
    thanks for documenting the ins and outs of your farm - my daughter and I enjoy reading all about it!

  2. Thanks - it is moments like these that make the sadder things so bearable. I think as long as Sadie doesn't lick the little fellow to death all will be good.

  3. What a gentle 'adoptive Mama' Sadie is!
    I just love these photos, Deb!! XXO-

  4. I just discovered your blog and can't wait to sit down and read through it - these pictures are adorable.
