Me and Jack just chased the neighbor’s cattle off our property. Normally Jack gets in trouble for chasing our horses, so he was a bit shy about going after the cattle. I am forever getting on to him for heeling the Great Dane or nipping at the Rat Terrier. He drives the other dogs crazy. So I was surprised that he was not willing to take care of the cattle problem. With a little encouragement, he eventually got into the job. I’ve always heard that you need a "go" word for a cattle dog. "Get ‘em" was not working at first. And I said it over and over. After I walked the length of the pasture and turned the cattle, "Whoop cow!" seemed to turn Jack on.
Oh, you WANT me to chase cows?! Why didn’t ya say so! Okie dokie, I can take it from here.
He and Zoe, the Dane, chased the cows on back down the pasture. What fun!
