Gallery Life in the Country… Spring baby lambs! Sacha and the patou have a little chat… These PATOU DES PYRENEES (The Great Pyrenees, known as the Pyrenean Mountain Dog) are raised with the sheep (and kind of think they are sheep) to protect the sheep from harm. They can be very scary and do a very good job guarding the flock! Quinces! Sacha and Bel Ami (and Bel Ami’s special hat) in an uneasy alliance.
