Great post! We have a hound mix, an Australian Shepherd and a Great Pyrenees. The Aussie would be miserable living outside and my house just isn't big enough for the Pyr. LOL Plus, she's bored after about 5 minutes indoors and wants back out unless there's thunder. She is very attached to her goats and gets anxious if separated from them for too long. She's not so great with the chickens, but it's something I've come to accept and we work around it, even if we lose a bird from time to time. We got her at 1 1/2 years old and haven't been able to break her from trying to play tag with them every time the weather gets cold. She was raised with goats and it's what she's more comfortable with. Our next Great Pyr will probably be a puppy that we can acclimate from a younger age, plus hopefully pick one that's a little less playful. But I love all of my dogs, even if the hound gets a little too "focused" when cats are around. LOL

Oh yes! We have had so many problems with predators. It amazes me how so many people want to defend the predators. Yes, I realize they need to eat too, but I live next to a 3,000 acre state forest with plenty of food available for them. They aren't stupid, they'll choose the easy meal every time.

We can no longer free range our chickens, but now that we breed purebreds, that's not really an option anyway. We did finally get an LGD to help keep predators away and to protect the goats. She's not so great with the chickens, but chickens are easier and cheaper to replace than goats and I've already lost one goat to stray dogs. I've also had to trap and/or shoot my share of predators. Now apparently we have coyotes on the property. It never ends, we always have to remain vigilant.

I told Henry we needed to feed the cupcakes to the pig. This wasn't quite what I had in mind.

Thanks for stopping by and for the link.  I really love how simple and effective this laundry detergent is.  I use it on everything from my cloth diapers to my family's clothes and bed sheets.  It works great.
