    It is interesting how hard wired dogs are. Eva takes her guard dog position very seriously. I had both dogs in the house yesterday while I worked on the burdock in the south pasture and could hear every time somebody walked/drove by. Eva has an awesome bark. Don't think anybody would challenge her, now that she has grown in her big feets!

    I have two working dogs too. Australian Cattle Dogs. Titan and Bandito.

    They work hard at sleeping on the couch, in their beds, and loving on Mama. Well, to be fair, one of them off a dairy farm in Lodi CA, watches constantly for crows, and keeps an eye on the "property".

    Today Sentry got a leash lesson. He proudly took the leash in his mouth and led me around. A new game!

    We walked, stopped, come, praise and ear rub. Ringo came too.

    When Sentry wanted to play tug, I didn’t scold or fuss. I just said Sentry come, he did, then lots of good boys and praise. Ringo is no dummy. Sentry got praise, Ringo wanted praise and rubs too. We walked, Ringo walked. We stopped, Ringo stopped. I praised both, rubbing ears to both their delight.

    Sentry likes to hang out with Ringo. When he gets too annoying, Ringo rumbles and swings his big head, sweeping Sentry away.
