You would think this whole blog has gone to the dogs lately. That is what happens when a new puppy comes around. Since I posted pictures of Bess though, I am now being bombarded (by a certain someone) for pictures of the other dogs too. So, it is Kelsey's turn. The poor, overlooked middle-child.
Kelsey is 9 years old this year and, with Scout gone, she has graduated to the senior dog.
She is sweet, kind, sensitive and a wee bit neurotic.
She loves working the sheep and is finally, after 6 years, gaining the confidence to work the cows a tiny bit.
A dog has to be tough, strong-willed and confident to work cows and when the going gets tough, Kelsey gets going - in the wrong direction.
Any hint of stress, frustration or anger and she zooms back to the house to hide. She also dislikes cuss words and bee-lines to the house and her hidey-hole at the merest hint of an F-bomb.
You may not know this, but the reason cows are born with horns is that they are direct descendants of the devil. That is an honest-to-God scientific fact. They are ALL devils. They can sniff out any hint of weakness and will exploit it unmercifully.
Kelsey is finally starting to figure out that she just might have the power to banish the devil. Maybe. When she's feeling tough.
On the days when the devils win anyway....at least there are always sheep to intimidate.
