Farm Dogs Love Jones Natural Chews
Farm dogs love Jones Natural Chews. It’s a proven fact. And they get a little touchy when you forget the Jones.
I took my first road trip in months this weekend. It was only an hour and a half away, but we visited our homesteading friends and I brought treats. Naturally. Because farm dogs love Jones. And as much as I love hanging out with the farm dogs, Anatolian mixes who guard the chickens, ducks, turkeys and goats, I had ulterior motives for the trip. Say hello to Bucky.
Bucky is a Katahdin lamb, born Friday. His story of how he came to live with my friends is written on their blog, here. Long story short, the farm dogs saved his life and brought him home, his mother having abandoned him at birth. What they don’t tell you is that the Katahdin sheep has hair instead of wool. Bucky is adorable. He peed on me, though, and I was done with his cute self. Back to the farm dogs I went!
My friend’s dogs – Anatolian and Great Pyrenees mixes – do a fantastic job of guarding the flocks. They work hard, lying around the property, wandering down the road and into the woods to look for carcasses. Actually, they’re fierce warriors, battling coyotes and big cats at night. You’d think with all the fun things to eat in the country, these farm dogs wouldn’t care so much about store bought treats. You’d think wrong.
Begging for Jones
Every time I show up, the farm dogs come to me, tails wagging, smiles on their faces. According to the farmer, these dogs don’t take to people quickly. They take their jobs seriously. I’m the exception to that rule. They love me. They’ve loved me from the first moment I got out of my car, hand full of Jones Natural Chews.
I bring big bones, Braided Stix, taffy and jerky treats – they love them all. In fact, this weekend, my hands empty of treats, the three followed me all over the farm while I took photos of the other critters. I ran inside and grabbed some of the Big Paw Jerky that I’d brought for them, made the situation right. I won’t make that mistake again.
