Kaitiaki is a New Zealand Māori term used for the concept of guardianship, for the sky, the sea, and the land. A kaitiaki is a guardian, and the process and practices of protecting and looking after the environment are referred to as kaitiakitanga.

Kai for short.

Oh man it’s hard to name another persons dog.  We had 2-3 names for our Aussie the first week until we came upon Cody which just felt right for her.  

Female Aussies are crazy protective of their heard so great choice in breed.

Then.... Lexi would be a good name. 

Origin of the name Lexi:
Lexi came about as a shortened version of the classic Greek names Alexis and Alexander during the 1990s. These names stem from the root Greek words that mean “to defend” and “men.”

She is a Great Pyrenees/Bernese Mountain Dog cross.  

That is an interesting cross. Hope it works well for them. We have had several guard dogs over the the years that have been very beneficial. Our last one was a Great Pyrenees. We have had some Šarplaninac and Šarplaninac-Maremma crosses. Luckily we only delt with threats from coyotes and not wolves, bears, and mountain lions.

There are lots of farm dogs in their area with that sort of lineage.  When she was talking to the owner..., they originally wanted a male, but when the owner was sending her individual pics of the litter for them to choose from, she said "And there is another female, but I can't get a good picture of her because she won't come out of the pasture with the herd", so D2 just said "We'll take her".  They went to meet her and said she is a great little pup.  

They still have their current big dog, Diesel, but he is 12 now so they wanted to get a new one sooner than later.  Diesel is a good dog.
