    God Bless Cattle Dogs and Personal Protection Thoughts...

    Did a little work on the tractor and driveway this afternoon, also worked on the Barn; Siding and Interior Storage. Red Dog stays on the porch when I work in the barn but follows the tractor around a bit.

    Weather came in late this afternoon and temps dropped a bit so I started a fire in the fireplace and tossed a polka dot fleece over myself after a hot shower. Red Dog cuddled up and wouldn't let Mrs S or Mrs S's Rat Dog near me or her. She'd fight a bear to protect me I think.

    God Bless Cattle Dogs!

    We had a cattle dog/German shepherd mix that was a wonderful guy. The wife found him as a tiny mange infested young puppy, in the roadside ditch, thrown away.
    What a wonderful dog he was.
    The size and coloring of an Australian cattle dog, with the appearance of a shepherd.

    He lived to be 16, been gone about 5 years now. I still have scars on my arm from his claws when we used to play fight.

    Slip, what is it about a blanket on a guy's feet that appeals to dogs? I have the same issue, I wake up with "something" on my shins and it's the dog!

    Now, I have a theory. Dogs usually come in litters. We originally bought two, a brother and sister. The sister died at about 14 years, and now the brother will only sleep if he's touching you. Being raised in a group appears to include me, too.

    Nice dog there Slippy, that breed is very loyal.

    One of my best friends was a wonderful mutt I grew up with. Protected the home from 2 and 4 legged. He'd grab a woodchuck and shake it until the insides came out, then eat it.

    The cattle dogs seem to know what to chase, or kill amazing. Mine will kill any size Racoon on sight. Has even killed one and chased down the second before it got away . While he get up set with the 8 pound dog Payton has he will not hurt her.
    cattle dogs will embrace a family but will bond firmly with one member. There is no animal that he will not deal with.

    My half cattle dog-half chow pooch "easy" is a humane society dog from Oklahoma. A smart and loyal pooch that barks too much some times and certainly sheds much more than I prefer. Still a very good boy.
