Another account of these great dogs

Thank you for sharing this story of Frankie protecting the family. Our family has had GP for many years now on our Oklahoma farm. They are truly amazing dogs.

I recently had a book published about these wonderful dogs and it includes a true story about our dogs encounters with the threats of a Mt. lion here in Oklahoma. The book also includes a story about our GP cross protecting me when threatened by an aggressive young man. The title of the book is Jumping Boundaries. I had to share our life experiences with these dogs.

Our dogs are guardians of a dairy goat herd but they are tightly bonded with our family as well.
GP are very smart and their abiltiy to make decisions can not be discounted. I loved reading this story of Frankie and loved the description of how she kept darting in and out at the bear to back it up.
