Watch Dog

Lilah came to us as one of many foster dogs and one of two who stayed as a family dog.  She wants to be an outside dog but we won’t let her. When Lilah’s lucky, we’ll let her in the chicken yard. The shepherd in her likes to watch. She stations herself at the top of the hill and studies the back pastures.

Chicken Yard


Even with daily walks, she was wound tight in the suburbs. This dog transformed when we moved.  She now has a view and a fenced in acre to run. Lilah likes the idea of being a farm shepherd. We don’t rub in that she’s really a sleep-in-the-bed, house dog.
