The guardian

Pieter and Palemon

Day 313, 2012 This was from the Rhodesian ridgeback fundraiser in November. The ridgie lives with a house full  of little silky terriers, I think it is his job to be their guardian.

His feet are nearly as big as they are.

  • Pam Mindt - Thank you Aubrey, Hannelie and Terri for taking/posting such incredible pictures. Palemon the gentle giant with little Pieter who has a heart of a lion. Due to years of neglect, Pieter was without much hair six months ago…the magic of love, nurturance, and consistent care transforms the heart. By the way I am not talking about Pieter…who rescued who? It has been heart warming to see him show such courage..courage to trust again. There is a story in this for all. Love to both Pieter and Palemon.ReplyCancel

  • Pam Mindt - One last thing. I have watched all of this from Afghanistan. It has been Hannelie and those around her who have been so attentive to the pack. I will be meeting little Pieter soon. Thanks again for such great photography and for making our animals story come to life through photography. You have such a gift! 🙂ReplyCancel
