He wasn’t much older before he began to work sheep for me.
He worked so well that I called him
my Six Million Dollar Dog…after the television show.
Then he took command of the ute and
would sit and wait for hours.
As with us all our pets are not as young as they used to be and they need their morning nap! Particularly after the weather turns a bit chilly.
Looking closer you will see that both dogs being ‘well-trained’, have put themselves to bed without being chained to their kennel.
These are/were farm dogs and have spent their entire life in those kennels along with approximately five other working sheep dogs.
Admittedly the kennels probably need replacing, however, here are two contented dogs with a variety of blankets to keep them warm.
From a photographic point of view, I took the top shot on my Nikon D90 using a 70-300 mm lens. So as not to disturb Maggie and Ginger the photo was taken through the glass in the back door.
Upon leaving farming life dogs were our biggest concern…how would they settle in, etc. A slice bread for fun on the first morning, in their new home, has now become a ritual. No matter how much breakfast they have beforehand, I have to give them their slice of bread before they truly believe the day has begun.
Sometimes I think they are like kids ‘conning’ me into a treat each morning!
Finally, I have seen much larger images posted on WordPress blogs, however, as a newbie to WordPress I still have not worked out how to do that. Any help would be appreciated.
