We are giving Briar longer and longer periods of free time with the sheep - always under supervision. Today I was glad I had my camera. I'm still laughing. She is approximately 13 weeks old.

  Briar with her sheep.

I was leaning on the fence, just supervising, when I noticed Briar alert on something. Three lambs were in hot pursuit of a chicken - YES! The lambs were chasing the Rooster!

  Hulk, the testosterone-ridden baby, was in the lead and he wasn't letting up. Briar was fascinated.

  Then she decided to join the game.

  The lambs stopped as Briar chased the intruder.

 Rooster doubled back.

As soon as he was away from the sheep, Briar stopped the chase. Now I ask you, how can I teach the dog that chasing chickens is wrong when the SHEEP are chasing the chickens??? I'll give her credit though. She didn't continue the chase once the rooster got away from the sheep. Good puppy. But all that running did work up a thirst.

Oh mama that's too cute for me. She is recognizing her calling and adoring you too. It's so sweet your Border is going to raise hell somewhere soon :-)

HaH! Border Collie considers Briar to be waaaaay beneath her. Border Collie is all business and ignores any attempts Briar makes to play with her. When bringing the sheep into the barn this evening, Briar bounced along behind Border Collie. Lily penned the sheep and ignored the puppy. THEN . . . Briar reached out and grabbed the end of Lily's tail as she zoomed past. Lily only weighs about 35-40 lbs. Briar is little but is built like a cinder block. That Border Collie hit the end of her tail and flipped back over on herself! She was so indignant! Border Collie had been flipped by a toddler!

That had to be hysterical. Lily must be insulted like crazy. Emma June regards her tail like a queen regards her crown. Jesus I'd have laughed til I fell over.
