She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”

The warmth in the winter the flowers of spring, the laughter in summer; and the changing of leaves, oh I have been blessed!…”

Spring is in the air!

It’s what chases off the cold,
It’s the season of new birth;
It makes the colors bold,
And brings life from dismal earth.
All earth is full of light,
And grows without a care;
Life sing with all your might,
For… spring is in the air!
May our God richly bless you all as you enter this beautiful season!
wishing you a…

They will be ready for pick up at 8 weeks. May 4th, 2014.
To reserve a puppy, a $50 deposit is required
If you have any questions please call or email us
Tel: 434-656-1188 Email: email@example.com
The great pyrenees puppies are so cute and sweet! They were only born a week ago!
These are great live stock guarding dogs! Our chickens can prove to it!
Before we had Great Pyrenees dogs we were losing so many chickens to predators such as raccoon, opossums, foxes and the worst of all Owls and hawks! The owls & hawks were worst because it is illegal to kill or hunt them!
When we got our first live stock guardian dogs named Bear and Bella. These big dogs simply have to let out a BIG bark to scare away most animals. And even better, these dogs love what they do! But you have to be careful to make sure from when they are puppies to keep them working with your animals so that they can create the great bond that is necessary!
Pictured above: Bella! We got Bella as a little 8 week old puppy!
Pictured above: Bella Now!
Pictured above: We got bear when he was 2 years old. He is a great guard!
Now here are some pictures from Bella and Bear’s 2013 Litter.
Pictured above: Bear and Bella are so sweet! Bella is the best great Pyrenees mother!
Above: The puppies at about 3 weeks. Their eyes are just opening!
The first year of a puppy’s life is full of eating sleeping and growing! These great Pyrenees grow so much in the first 8 weeks we have them.
Above: Hope Holding two of the great Pyrenees. They are so adorable and fluffy!
The puppies at about 6 weeks.
Above: Sweet little things!
Above: Peace keeping all her ducks or puppies in a row
Above: When the puppies got older we would take a few at a time and bring them in with the little chicks we were raising at the time. Teaching them to not chase or bite them. They had a good time.

We have been enjoying sledding in the snow! But chores are a bit tougher for the animals and us
Here is a little glimpse of what
“Our Father’s Farm and the Fuhrmann Family” have been doing!
Snow is beautiful and we have enjoyed it so much! All the seasons are so wonderful and God was so kind to make them for us. Just as soon as you get tired of one another comes! One of my favorite parts of winter is the Snow! As it spreads out over the land and trees white and pure and clean, it reminds us of God’s love and forgiveness that He spreads abroad in our hearts and lives.
Here are a few pictures
Click on pictures to see them larger.
Great is Thy faithfulness, oh God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.
It was snowing so hard for almost 2 days! Above the hens are trying to weather the storm:)
Above: Timmy (along with the rest of us) are getting ready to start morning chores.
God has made all things and with out him was not anything made!
I got a shot of a cute little bird! Enjoying the snow from the tree tops)
The good old red roofed farm house!
The snow is starting to melt and slide of the rooves.
Four of the milk cows waiting there turn for milking
The Lord liveth and blessed be the rock of salvation!
And the Glory of the Lord Shall be revealed!
And His name shalt be called “Wonderful!, Counsaler!, The Mighty God the everlasting father the prince of peace.
Above: Lady (the horse)
Now the FUN of snow begins!!!!!
We went out to a hill in one of the fields and really enjoyed our selves!
For the Lord God omnipotent raineth! Hallelujah!
We packed the snow and made a little jump! It went so fast and was really fun! We had a great time making memories with some of the best people in the world “Family”!
Josh and Timmy built an igloo sort of thing:) And it is just the perfect size for Danny!
Little “Daisy May” (the new puppy) Had a fun time with us all. But it was hard for her to plunge through the snow! she kept on falling through and getting stuck.
SLEDDING JUMPS!!! Now we are going to show some of the crazy jumps we made!
Danny is coming…..
And he is still smiling!
He is about to go for a crash landing.
Ouch! But fun:)
We were having a brothers weekend hosted at our house. Dad/Jack has three other brothers they all came down with our cousin Emily.
Pictured above. Left to right: Jack/Dad, Uncle Alain, Grandmere, Uncle Tom, & Uncle Henri.
Pictured above: Timmy is taking Uncle Tom for a fast ride!
Pictured above: Uncle Henri flying over a jump! It was almost more fun than sledding yourself to see all the uncles’ faces and how crazy their rides were!
Pictured above: Dad had a ride on the saucer:)
Pictured Above: Uncle Henri and Dad/Jack sledding down the hill! It was so funny to see “men” playing/sledding:) They were so Great!
How wonderful it is to be with family!
And the Lord’s generations shall spread the gospel and their seed shall be for Him!
Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
