In which I ramble a lot about sheepdogs

One of my LJ friends posted a video yesterday of her sheltie herding sheep. Luna is a promising young plain-eyed dog that's got the idea and the inclination, and is also quite calm about it. Plain eyed dogs tend to lack the intensity that strong-eyed dogs have, and thus also lack that thing that gives it the potential to turn to custard in a split second. And watching Luna work sheep made me go all misty-eyed..

It also brought to my attention some of the differences between the US and here with regard to the whole sheepdog thing.

Hehe, watch me wax verbose about something that's close to my heart...

In other news, I like video chat. Oh yes. ;-)
