Tale Of Two Working Dogs

Lenore has been exploring herding work, she comes into the pasture and positions herself near the sheep. Her manner of herding is different from Red, who is always close to where she decides to sit down. Whereas Red looks at the sheep, Lenore gazes out to the horizon, perhaps scanning the woods for something gross to eat.

Red keeps the sheep in line, and away from the donkey feeder. Lenore has a laissez-faire approach to the sheep, they can do pretty much what they want. Once in awhile, she turns around to look at them or Red, but mostly is content to take in the view. They are a wonderful team in their own way, each exploring the boundaries of the working dog in their own way.
