Reading a story this morning on a kelpie which sold for $22,000, reminds me of a program which used to air on Sat afternoon, and they televised sheep dog trials. It was fascinating to watch those dogs round up the sheep from commands that were short and sharp, yet the dogs knew exactly what to do. Shame it’s not on anymore.
Mal, do you remember what the program was called? It might be on the net.
Yes, those dogs were incredible. I sometimes think we’ll never know the full extent of dogs’ intelligence. The guide dogs and now therapy dogs. There’s even been a story or two, of dogs warning of certain illnesses, before any outward signs.
Sorry Salina, I can’t remember the programmes name it might be able to find out though, I’ll try, dogs also do wonders for people whose husband/wife has died, they too have the sense of loss, but they will comfort their owner who they seem to realise is in semi-shock,
