Bumble and Bea

For those of you new to my blog, Bumble and Bea are our two Great Pyrenees guard dogs that take care of the goats.  Because of the coyotes we probably would not have continued to keep the goats without them.  We got them as 12 week old puppies in October of 2009 and they have been a joy to have ever since.   They love staying with the goats yet are very friendly to us.  They love attention but are ready to go when the goats start moving out.   
 For their large size they are still very humble.
 They adore Emma and continue to allow her to "be in charge."
 I named Bumble after the Abominable Snowman from Rudolph.  She was just so big and bumblely.
 Bea is a bit smaller than Bumble.  My brother came up with her name for Aunt Bea on Andy Griffith who looked after Opie since Bea was to look after the goats.
 And it's fun to have 2 dogs named Bumble/Bea.
They are true gentle giants.
