It Felt Like Ireland

Dog at my side, I stood atop the hill pasture and watched the early morning fog envelop the sheep. The chilly air raised goosebumps on my arm.

Wasn't it mornings like this that inspired people to buy Border collies and sheep?

But foggy mornings aren't the best for training dogs.

I gave Caeli a come-bye command and watched her disappear into the fog. Then, I looked for a moving white patch that might indicate a dog or sheep. I found none. Both sheep and dog were lost in the fog.

Standing on the hill, I waited and hoped for the best.

In a minute, six sheep trotted toward me. Behind them was a happy Border collie.
