    October 15, 2011 by Terry Ropp

    By Terry Ropp One of the dog breeds more common here than in many other parts of the country is the Great Pyrenees as it is known in the States or Pyrenees Mountain Dog elsewhere. Two area families, Marvin and Linda Jones in West Fork and Mike and Diane Hawkins in Prairie Grove put the breed to vastly different uses with equal success and delight. The Jones’ have five dogs and use them to guard sheep, goats, and, — believe it or not — chickens. The Hawkins’ on the other hand, have a registered male they use as a family pet.
