Pity the poor Border collie that is good at her job.
Earlier this week, our walks took us around a farm pond. Upon seeing geese, Mickey, the 12-year-old Border collie, did what she'd been trained to do. She chased the geese into the pond, ran to the other side and harassed them.
On our morning walk today, I unleashed the Border collies after crossing the road. Mickey ran across the hay field and up the pond bank. But when she arrived at the pond, she found no geese.
Apparently they had taken her suggestion and moved on, leaving her with nothing to do.
