If you've been around a long long time you may remember that we used to have a gorgeous Belgian Shepherd Dog named Dusty whom we bred and showed. I got these pictures of her son Jack yesterday.
Dusty was a beautiful girl. She used to accompany me around the province when I worked for the co-ops. We did presentations for schools among other things and as I talked she would circulate among the students, letting them pet her. Unfortunately, when I stopped working due to illness, she had no job to do and she created her own job - herding Siberians. Herding GSPs is great - they think it's a game. The Siberians find it offensive and set out to put a stop to it. For her own safety we eventually ended up placing her with my cousins in the Ottawa Valley where she herded cattle until she passed a few years ago from a spinal tumour.
