Not the best morning. Sophie has flunked LGD probably permanently. She attacked a ewe that was already a candidate for a bullet, elderly and scouring. Damn it I thought she would settle down. And I thought I was making headway with that scour. Crockett didn’t stop her although he has dropped the hammer on her before as have the other dogs. Nope the others were nonchalant, probably would have whistled a tune if they could. Then the ewe needed a bullet and l asked my husband to do it. Wtf? Did someone replace me with someone else? Ugh I’m a farm fail. But I am going to the range this weekend. Sophie, who had been working in the mornings, is in jail til I cool off. Which could be awhile since I just escorted a solid 75lbs of former sheep to a discreet buzzard dining area. Skyler and Beluah our nesting pair have standing reservations. I haven’t lost a sheep in awhile they may not notice soups on right away. AND I have shoes and socks full of spear grass. Think I’ll just burn them.
How old is Sophie? @Ridgetop

She has chased and tackled. There was a suspicious lamb death but I didn’t see what happened. She was rescued from a bad situation where at various points she escaped and scavenged. She was fed scraps and garbage even when pregnant and nursing and some of her pups died. She’s been with the flock during the day and no problems that the other dogs ((and me) didn’t correct. So for anyone who is saying “rescued dog, bad idea” you told me so and now I start her over. I hope that doesn’t sound bxxtchy
the humble pie I’m eating is causing some heartburn.

I loved Justin Wilson! I never tired of his stories, never heard this one!
Me too. I liked how he talked about measuring the hot sauce carefully while moving the spoon away from the sauce being dispensed a few times. Since the spoon was over the dish he was making the amount of hot sauce was probably triple what the recipe called for :)

Sophie was sprung from jail. She will return to close supervision flock work with a bell. The bell of shame. I used this with another pup to stop stalking. Damn if he didn’t figure out how to carry the bell in his mouth to stop the noise but he couldn’t bite either. I won that round and he shaped up into a good LGD. We’ll see how it goes. Soph will always have a home with us. She can watch house and empty pastures.
