This is Minerva!
You might actually recognize her as the face of Caromont.
I was lucky enough to witness the birth of her two kids this year.
She's an old pro in the birthing department and, I must say, a great Mother.
Attentive, careful, protective, nurturing.
This was kid number one.
(Julia didn't want me to share the really graphic pictures, but it was a truly amazing, crazy thing to witness!)
Bear checking out her new charge.
Amazing to see these HUGE Great Pyrenees being so tender with the wee ones.
She would give her life for any one of these babies if it came down to it!
