TOP FARM DOG of the YEAR

Ben is a Terrier whose duties include watching the owner's daughter, be on rat control, squirrel patrol and raccoon patrol. His favorite season is Deer Season. He may be little, but the Hunt family thinks he's big. He can do the work of six cowboys! He earns his kibbles. Ben received a gift basket donated by Petco.
Runner up "Fierce" Dog - "Daisy"
"Daisy" is a Great Pyrenees x Anatolian cross guard dog with the Hague family. Don't let her calm & peaceful demeanor fool you. She can definitely go mama-bear on any trespasser (both the two legged and four legged variety) from getting too close which includes coyotes, bears, mountain loins and wandering dogs. Daisy spends her days and nights out in the field with her sheep and goats enjoying the sunshine and life in general. Beware, just don't jump in the field and try to pet her! Daisy received a gift basket donated by Nilsen Company
