Rosemary is one of those special dogs that draws you into the depths of all she is and it leaves you in awe.  Every day I trek out to her pasture to milk the Jersey and every day she peeks around the corner to see what I'm doing and once she sees that I'm there to milk, she will lay down next to me and lay her head on her paws.  The first time she did it, it struck me profoundly to the point where I wrote about her on a milking cow forum that I belong to:

"Yesterday morning when I went to milk her, I had her all hooked up and she was happily eating her feed in her trough. I had a square bale of hay break from its strings so I just sat on top of the pile of hay as I watched the milk release from her udder and flow down the tubes into the pail. I know this sounds crazy but one of the things I love about milking her is watching the milk release. I think that's because it means I'm being successful in doing something I've really wanted to do for several years.

I looked behind me and one of my LGD's was laying on the side of the little barn on some hay. Her face was filled with contentment and it was one of those moments that fills the heart with happiness and peace for no particular just does.

There are all kinds of pressures and stresses going on but when I'm out milking those distractions and heavy weights on the heart subside. I think I could sit there for hours, just like that. It's just a really special time that I value."

That's our Rosemary.  She reminds me of Lokum in some ways...unlike some of the dogs who will push their way up to the front for the loving and hugs, Rosemary will wait patiently...wanting and needing it just as much as the other dogs but she won't compete with them.  Lokum is like that, and if somehow she was accidently looked over (which she never is), I have a feeling she would walk away telling herself it was ok and that she would get her special time 'next time'.

I don't know about you, but that really gets to me and Rosemary is definitely her mama's daughter.  She honors all that Lokum is...she's fierce when needed and loyal far beyond 'the call'.  I'm so grateful those rare and unique qualities have been preserved in her daughter, Rosemary.
Rosemary's puppies are growing like weeds.  They're following the all too familiar Kangal Puppy schedule...
Eat, sleep, eat, sleep, eat,
Are they too gorgeous or WHAT!?!
Here's looking at you kid!
