w/ training (and the sheep to work her on) she would most likely be an excellent sheep/cattle dog....
we haven't had the chance to try daddy on sheep, yet, but soon......

SO I (don't) think anyone should go bragging on their dogs ...
until two things have been done, ONE Work your dog on EVERYTHING Especially Cattle, and if he has the Grit to bring blood to cows nose and turn Her, and then have the gentleness to work geese,chickens nything like that then thats a good working dog, TWO if He or She can do that ANYWHERE not just on the ground they are used to working on.

Susan was the most help on the site with some of the most stupid questions I had to get answers for so anyone who is slamming Susan on here I dont think really has the right to at all.. This site use to be alot of fun people were always very kind never any rude comments to anyone. We all loved our dogs and yes we did brag alot, but that is what we did. and that was what was acceptable.
