It is a delightful drive to my agility trainer’s home, the scenery is breathtaking. Buddy and I had completed a session, and I was feeling that we were progressing nicely. We were on the way home, windows down, music playing, not a care in the world. Then the sheep appeared.
I slowed and eventually stopped. He showed no sign of moving and stared at me. I could see he had accomplices all around me. We were surrounded by sheep – was I going to be fleeced or was my thinking just a little woolly? I think two things saved me – the protection offered by my sturdy Land Rover, and the sheep’s lack of an opposable thumb.
Eventually he moved out of the way sheepishly – well how else would he move? - and we continued our journey home. I knew crime was spreading to rural areas, but I never expected the sheep to go bad.
Don’t forget that episode 71 of DogCast Radio will be available at www.dogcastradio.com/episode/5604_episode_71__separation_anxiety_and_bor... and features great advice from Cindy Scott about separation anxiety and an excellent Border Collie breed profile from Barbara Sykes. Enjoy!
