My wife texted me the top image of our wonderful border collie puppy, Oliver, who was caught in the act of chewing up one of our kitchen chairs. We have had puppies who have been chewers, but nothing like Oliver. Every time we think he has stopped his onslaught, we turn our backs and he strikes again on undamaged furniture or shoes. I will be investing in some furniture repair this winter. It is a good thing he is loveable and cute!
We have added a steer named Mac to our list of animals. For now he is staying with a fellow 4H member while we learn the ropes, (and I do mean ropes). Whereas the sheep just need to hear the sound of the food bin opening, the steers must be caught with a rope halter and escorted to their respective food containers.
Sheep are followers, steers are not, (at least this one is not). I hope we have him trained by the time he weighs 1500 lbs.
