The Pen

This makes me smile.

When working the dog on sheep, I find guiding the sheep into the pen to be one of the hardest tasks.

My sheep do not like to go into the pen. They will bolt, leap and scatter to avoid it.

But Mickey is patient.

She creeps. She tiptoes. She takes her time.

This morning, for the second time this week, we gathered the sheep into the pen.

I stepped away and performed a victory dance and whoop, before returning to the task at hand: documenting that I finally got those squirrelly sheep into a pen.

Mickey, as always, waited patiently for her next task.
