These pictures were just taken yesterday! Kara, imported last January, will be 2 years old in March. He is filling out so nicely. Seen above with Kara (standing) is one of two pups imported last May.
Kara is a sweet, gentle, donkey-sized dog! He is mellow with the goats and last spring let the young kid goats jump all over him. He accepted the new import pups graciously, and has been like a father to them in his pasture. They, the goats, and people all adore him.
Kara lives 24/7 with his herd. Every morning at feeding time, Kara can be seen standing with his goats as they eat their alfalfa. He doesn't just stand nearby, he is actually between goats, standing taller than his Oberhasli dairy goats, and scanning the valley for any threat of predators!
Kara is a very affectionate boy. You can see his reactions in his expressive eyes. When given attention, he gets a little silly, very much like an adolescent boy!
