We had already started declaring 2015 the worst year ever before the dog died.
Our dear boy, Rocky, left us on Friday, the victim of cancer. Born in October of 2007, he came to the farm as a pup in January 2008.
Rocky's first day on the farm
He grew into a 120 lb. sweetheart that was always game for a head scratch from a stranger. Each CSA morning that day's crew would have to go through what we dubbed "the security check", which consisted of a friendly sniffing then he'd find some sucker to pet him down while the safety talk went on. He was a Great Pyrenees/Anatolian shepherd mix, both breeds are meant to guard livestock from predators, in our case he guarded our crops and chickens.
Tom and I were very attached to our gentle giant. He was an important member of the farm crew and he will be sorely missed. A memorial to our lost pal has taken up a blank chalkboard in the packing room so that we can remember him as we work.
