An instinct for the job

Diego, Emily and Freckles

February 28, 2010

Our rescue Great Pyr, Diego, continues to thrive in his new home. His instincts are much better than Freckles’. Late yesterday afternoon, for example, he watched as the sheep slowly made their way to the back of the pasture. (Normally they return to the run-in shed at that time.) He quietly walked the entire length of the pasture to them. Once there, he gently rubbed against several of them to encourage the flock to turn around and come back. Meanwhile, as Diego was quietly and efficiently doing his job, Freckles was idly gnawing on a leftover soup bone back in the run-in shed! Here’s a picture of daughter Emily last weekend with the two Pyrs — Diego on the left, Freckles to the right!
