For many years, the BBC have run a programme of sheepdog trials.
It’s a programme like no other- serious competition demonstrating the best working relationships between shepherds and their dogs, and showcasing the amazing skills of the dogs. To those of us without fields and sheep of our own, it’s remarkable. Herself was a big fan; at the time I thought she was deluded and old. If we’re lucky, oldness creeps up on us…
I hadn’t thought of the programme in ages, until I looked up from my book the other evening.
Jake likes to snuggle in to a small, cozy space. Spurs Fan likes a hot bundle by his feet.
One man his dog, McSpec style.
