    FARM DOGS | MARVIN, PAL

    Farmdogs2

    Marvin Hachmeister has never met a stranger, he certainly passed that on to his dog, Pal, an 8-year-old heeler mix. Hachmeister’s land just outside Wildcat Park is Pal’s domain. He keeps watch over the cattle and lives like a farm king. Pal often acts as a greeter at Wildcat Park, running to entering cars to put a smile on visitors faces. Pal even gets to go to races with Hachmeister; he competes in 10Ks with his faithful owner. Email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to suggest a farmer for this series.

    FARM DOGS | KIRK & BLUE

    Farmdogs

    Kirk Junod and his companion, Blue, are inseparable. Blue is a 14-year-old blue heeler/border collie who has lived by Junod’s side in Neuchatel since she was a puppy. Blue is with Junod so much his truck has become her territory. From long rides to trips to the grocery store, Blue is included. On the rare occasions when Blue is left alone at the house, Junod likens his return as coming home to an angry wife. Blue has chickens to round up, unconditional love from Junod and sometimes ground beef for dinner, raised and butchered by Junod himself. This is the first of a series of pictures that illustrate the relationship between rural farmers and their dogs.
