THE SOPPY SHEILA SELECTION

Sue Foster knew what she needed to do when her border collie, Taff, was expelled from puppy school for herding the black Labs into a corner.

She rented some sheep.

THE SOPPY SHEILA SELECTION — 12 Comments

  1. I know there are establishments w/ sheep, which are just there for people to bring in their acting-out herding dogs for a few hours (another option).

  2. You think the company of those later options might prove cruelly distressing for the collies, Mad One? You might be right.

    Or did you mean that when it comes down to it Tories and Popes are no better than animals, and the RSPCA might therefore take a proprietary interest in their welfare? …

    Well, it could be both, I suppose.

  3. That is a very valid point, o Mad One. I was unsure who the RSPCA would be up in arms about and was therefore speculating as to the possible reasons either way. But to say Popes and Tories are on the level of animals is indeed in most cases an insult to animals, of whom, as you rightly point out, I am mostly extremely fond.

    Blame the cold/flu. I can’t breathe proper and my head is burning up. I’m retiring for the evening. Good night, all.
