OK, so where is my cookie??? I have been waiting and waiting, hand it over!
That's Lucy our Australian shepherd, we got her from the pound....yep she is a pound puppy who is now 10 or 11 we aren't sure. She is such a good girl! When we had cows she was the calf babysitter. She guarded the babies in the field and the moms didn't seem to mind her there at all! Her herding and protection instincts took over; if one calf got separated from the rest she would herd it to it's momma. I never taught her how to herd cattle, cause I don't know how to teach her and never could find anyone in the area either.
Lucy is a good varmit dog too. No ground hogs, raccoons, rats, mice squirrels anything that she thinks shouldn't be here they are gone! Lucy is also my companion when I ride Gilly, she tags along everywhere we go.
Ever after at the door begging for a cookie and she always gets one!!!
