Miss Bailey's Weekend Sheepherding Adventure

Ms. Bailey Blue here, finally with a report on last weekend's extraordinary sheepherding adventure, starring ME, the uber-sheep-meister, border-collies-eat-your-hearts-out, all-around EXPERT dominatrix of wooly critters with cloven hooves!

Part I: The Start of the Event!

This affair took place in the ultra-urban, global hub of Portland, Connecticut. Note the expressions of arrogant disdain on the faces of the sheep! Plainly, they had to be put in their place. Plainly, I, Ms. Bailey Blue, was the one to do it!

Every flock has one...the Alpha Ewe! I kept my eye on her, knowing that a show-down was inevitable.

Okay--let the carnage begin! After gently whispering to Frau Lamm, "You wanna piece of me?" I'm off!

Note the moves, the breathtaking vitesse, and the discrete, subtle use of barking...

The Alpha Ewe has been dispatched and put in her place! Now, the flock is MINE!

Kerry Blues, 1, Sheep 0.

Now, the Flock sends in its second string:

The score: Irish Street Thugs, 2, Ovis Aries, 0!

If it doesn't work the first time, why would they expect it to work the second? I tell you, these sheep are geniuses.

But Frau Lamm is back, and she's angry! Watch this:

Just in case you're concerned, NO SHEEP WERE HARMED IN THE FILMING OF THIS FEATURE. I know, they're kind of warm and cuddly, and they make great sweaters and lambchops...oops, please forget I said that...

After a long day of pursuing intellectually-challenged, wooly quadripeds in the mud, what is one to do?

It's time for...

Signing out...

Blimey we had no idea that Kerry Blues were used for herding sheep. Excellent Bailey.
Somehow, I don't think we would be very good at it.
Thanks for showing us your stuff!

Hugs and tail wags

Je suis impressionnée par votre savoir-faire. J'en apprends beaucoup sur les Kerry Blue Terrier et je les aime toujours plus. Personnellement j'ai peur des moutons...oui oui.
Bises, Faya
