There's a new Marshall in town

Well, he'll be a true Marshall someday. But right now, he's still a puppy and isn't good for much except bugging the Smushies.

Marshall is a Live Stock Guard Dog. He's Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Shepherd cross. He looks big, huh? Guess what... he's only 10 weeks old! BOL!!

He loves us and thinks we're his herd. So momma has to take him out with the horses a lot so he knows his job isn't to only protect us. 

Unlike us Smushies, he spends most of his time outside to learn to guard the Smushie Ranch. We go outside often though to say hi and keep him company. Specially Gunther, who likes to beat him up several times a day.

 This is Grandma introducing Marshall to Joe and momma's pony, Sheldon. That was just a couple weeks ago, and now Marshall is kinda too big to be held.

BTW, Joe the Donkey and Sheldon the Appaloosa Pony are momma's babies out on the Ranch. Joe was a rescued donkey and he was kinda lonely. So then momma found Sheldon, who is 19 years old and was in need of a new home. She never imagined these two would become BEST friends. 

More to come from  life on the Smushie Ranch...

Golly, you guys have so many fun pups and barn animal dudes. Mr. Donkey looks sweet. What are the alpacas up to these days??
Yes, we agree with Pam. Smackdown pics needed. Who knows though, Gunther may still bully Marshall even when he is 100 lbs.

Teehee! Marshall IS a cutie patootie! Although it sounds good that your Mom has him out working the ranch already, or you smush faces would all be herded into a corner by now! And we're certainly of the belief that you should smack him down now, while you still can! :-)

Oh wow, we just can't keep up with all the goings on at the Smushie Ranch these days! Marshall is adorable!!! And I agree with pam....pics of Gunther schmackdown would be cool, because yeah, that puppy gonna be in a position to seek revenge in the not too distant future!! Heee! Thanks for sharing some of the non-smushie residents of the ranch - in addition to Marshall, Joe and Sheldon are really cool!
