The Control Freak

As those of us with herding dogs know, they tend to be control freaks. Order must be established, movement controlled, territories and boundaries protected. While on the remote beach one day, sea kayakers paddled across so they could enjoy the empty beach. Jimmy didn't see them arrive but he definitely saw them leaving and gave them well as hurry-up, do-it-this-way, and finally as they got out of reach, and-stay-out!

What the.....? You can't leave!

You need to be closer together! If this water wasn't so deep........

Ok then....You stay out and don't come back!

No kayakers were harmed in the making of this post, however there may or may not have been teeth marks on that last kayak!

    Best wishes Molly

  3. Ha!Ha! Oh that Jimmy! He's pretty tough when he's in shallow water! LOL!

    Thanks for your kind words about Freddie. I don't know of any Basset help but if I have to I will put a chip-in on for Fred as I will do whatever it takes.

  4. Woof! Woof! Oh! Happy Monday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  5. Good dog! Good dog! Keep those kayakers in line!

  6. We know all about the controlling attitude of herding dogs. We have an Australian Shepherd, Missy. And she loves to herd everything in sight. Including kids and grandpuppies. She keeps us all in line.
