Puppy Tales

Last month we went to visit some friends on their farm, inland from Port Macquarie. A neighbour of theirs had a litter of kelpie puppies, which we liked the look of, so we brought one home. We do already have 4 kelpies, but Maya and Buster are nearly ten years old and just about ready to retire; Floyd is heading for seven, and Jaco is about three and just starting to become reliable as a working dog. By the the time the new pup is trained and ready to take responsibility for sheep and cattle work, Floyd will be close to retirement.

Binky comes from a pretty good line of mostly cattle working dogs and so far she’s fitting in very well. It’s hard to get her to sit still for long enough to take a picture, but here’s the best we can get.
