Look what came into the Garden Department yesterday! Norman (6 mos) and Calamity Jane (4 yrs) are gorgeous Bernese Mountain Dogs. Their folks understand and love the breed and told me about its history and capabilities. I’ve assumed that, like St. Bernards, these originally were rescuing dogs. But instead, these giant animals were descended from Roman mastiffs and used to herd sheep and pull carts.
Now transitioning to today, I’m writing this slightly after 3 a.m. to clock in at work by 6 a.m. I will feed the dogs soon, and around 5 a.m., be outside caring for my horses.
Thankfully, the weather has warmed and is without falling snow.
Dear Friends: Have a wonderful day. Diana
